I have traced his details. He was born 1877 in Dorset, and died in 1930 in Kent.His father, George, was born 1843 in Dorset, and was recorded on the 1901 census. His father was Daniel, born in 1812 in Dorset, who I believe,was the son of Thomas and Ann PEACH, who were married in Hilton, Dorset in 1796. If anyone has any further information, it would be appreciated.

I have recently started limited research on my direct male line, and as a result, have ascertained that my grandfather, Arthur Henry Drake, who I did not meet, was 21years old on  03-04-1899, when he married my grandmother, Charlotte Eliza Winn, in Folkestone, Kent, England.
The certificate of marriage shows that his father was a George Drake, with an occupation of sawyer.
My father, Cecil Bert Drake  b. 15-05-1915.  d. .........., believes that he originated in the Dorset area of England.
Nothing else is known as yet, about him, and I would appreciate any information.
with thanks.
