I was wondering if, in your researches, you had come across any
information on William Henry Drake (Coimbra, Portugal 1812-London 1882).
He was in the Commissariat of the British Army and was stationed in WA
from 1830-1848 and in Hobart from 1848-1850. He married Louisa Purkis in
Perth, and had 5 children - John, Louisa Maria, Charlotte Augusta Dring,
Emily Caroline, & Laura Mary.
Look forward to hearing from you
PS I am currently engaged in an MA thesis on him. He is also my GGG grandfather.
