Thomas Drake genealogy

Date: Monday, 25 January 1999 8:44

Dear Sir/Madam:

Regarding your query: Thomas Drake of Halifax, Yorks. I am a descendant of
Thomas Drake (b. 9 Oct 1803, Sowerby), who married Anna Waddington of
Southowram in 1829. I wonder if you are interested in adding my research to
your database.

I have traced my line back as far as Joseph Drake (1745-1833), a merchant
clothier of Sowerby. A son of his, William, leased part of the Ashday Hall
estate in Southowram in the 1820s from a Thomas Drake. I suspect that that
Thomas was related to William in some way, but have not been able to establish
the connection.
