Tiiounii this family has been settled in this country 
ahove two hundrkd years, and is conseqnently nnc of the 
oldest in New England, there has not hitherto, to the writer's 
kno«ledi,'e, been a single essay, by descendant or other, to 
collect and compose any kind of a memorial of it. Hence 
it is easy for every one to see, that when I undertook such a 
task I liad not a x^cry little to do. 

To look through a space of two hundred yctm, where 
records arc perfect and legible, in a similar work to this, 
would bo no ordinary undertaking ; but to look for records 
where there wouhl often none bo found, or, when found, 
woidil only conv(-y the knowledge that nothing was to he 
kiutu-a from thi-in, is what every one must bo prepared to 
expect, who enlists in such a service. But there is nearly 
as much satisfaction, sometimes, in knowing that nothing 
can bo known, as there is in discovering the object of 
pursuit. 

But long accustomed In the drudgery of similar investiga- 
tions in an equally early literary pursuit, I became habitually 
in love with whatever appertained to antiquities ; and this

is ,1 synopsis of one bn.ncl. of my i,>v,-.li£,'alinn, ^^Wu■h, if 
appreciulcd by those for whom it i« .nf.uUM, will .loul.ly 
rcpay mo for the many jonrneys I have ma.lo, the expcnso I 
have been at, and the time I have spent to brin.,' it touHhrr. 
And now, after a period of fnll twenty year., th-.m^h 
which I have been constantly watching, colle.ting and wait- 
in" for facts to enable me to compose a compl.'le acconnl of 
my inrme.liate ancestors, I have sat down to trive an abstract 
of what I have, during that time, been able to bring together. 
Not to publish it, but to put it into the hands of such of my 
friends and relatives as lake an interest in such enquiries : 
that by this they may see where I still want information, 
and to prompt them to communicate it, if in their power. 

I have written a multitude of letters of en.p.iry ; to many 
of wliic.h no answers have been received, whih. to others 
the replies have been all that could have been expected. 
Many persons with whom I have conversed with the hope 
of gaming information, seemed to have been iRuorant even 
of the story of the 'Three Brothers,' or that they had an 
ancestor beyond their grandfatlu'r, of whoso baptismal nan,e, 
too, they were often ignorant. Vet there are several penile- 
men of the name in diir.arnl parts of (he country to whom 
I gladly acknowledge my ind.d.ledness, for the pron,p'>-'«H 
Jlh which they have responded to my on.puries, and who 
luive shown by their connuunieations, that it was not for 
want of interest or ability that they have not answered me 
as fully as I desired. But in this slight acknowledgment 
I will not withhold the names of Danif.i, Dkakf., M. D., 
of Cincinnati, a descendant of the an.'ient family of the

name seated at Piscataway, in N. J. ; Benjamin Du\ki:, 
M. D., of New York, of tho equally ancient family of DnA k f. 
of Wiiulsor, Conn.; Col. O. L. Drake, Ksq., of Freedom, 
O.; Ai.ANsoN Drake, E.sii., of Aiilwerp, N. Y. ; Reuren 
Drake, K.sq., of Kcdlleld, N. Y. ; Mr. W. H. Drake, of N. 
Y. ; Mr. Jeiiiei, Drake, of Slmlburn Falls, Ma.s.i., all of 
the same family, originally scaled at Windsor, as above 
mentioned, and Edenezer Drake, of North Pari.s, Maine, 
of the Massachusetts family. 

To many gentlemen of otlier name.-i I am also indebted ; 
especially to my esteemed friend, Samuel H. Parsons, 
Esq. of Hartford, to Sylvihh« Judd, Esq., of Northampton, 
Mas.s., and to my lamented friend, E. W. Toppan, Escj., 
late of Hampton, N. II., deceased. 

My progress in investigating the genealogy of my family, 
has b(c;n, from various causes, very slow ; and, although I 
began at an early age to enipiire about it of my aged rela- 
tives, they were able to give me but very slight informa- 
tion, and being located at considerable distance from such 
records as could aid me, and not having the means of con- 
sulting them, much perplexing delay was experienced. 

Jly father was one of Nature's antiquaries, but his atten- 
tion was never much turned to this matter ; and, having but 
a slender ('diication, was unable to improve the means at 
his command, which, under more favorable circumslances, 
he doubtless would have done. But to his preserving hand 
I am greatly indebted for many MS. materials, which other- 
wise would have been utterly lost. 

This liltlc work, I desire my friends to consider, (and I

nuniliors slaiuls. For examiilo, on pago 33, against SIMON 






Tim top nuintn'r, (34,) shows its particular place 
in till! genealogical series, and the bottom one, (88,) shows 
where the family rerord of that individual, (SIMON,) is 
displayed ; thai is, it follows (S8) in the regular series. 

I commence with the heads of a family, and give without 
interruption their children, in order, narrating of each what- 
ever I deem necessary. This I call the family record of 
such family. After having given the family record, I next 
take np llii^ first, or oldest of the family, and in like manner 
give the family record of that individual; I then take the 
second, or next oldest, and so on through every successive 
family. That wc do not know any thing of many individ- 
uals in the early families, need make no disarrangement in 
the plan 1 have adopted, as will be seen on reference to the 
following pages. If we omit to give family records of twen- 
ty pi ( 1IIS together, it leads to no confusion, for we can pro- 
ceed with noy number, at any time. To omit a member of 
a family for want of information is what we are compelled 
to do at almiisi every step, but if we are so fortimato as to 
find a memoir or record of the family of the individual so 
passed over, we have only to record it at the end of our 
work, duly numbered, and all is plain. 

As simple as this plan is, I have spent much lime in per- 
fecting it; and I'doubt not, that, were it generally known, it 
would be as generally adopted by all persons making up 
family genealogies. 

I can but slightly touch upon the antiquities of the early

FAMILY ANTiaUITY. 



Tin: Hiinily of DIIAKE, accordinp; to the old Eng- 
lisli gcnctilogists, • is one of great aiUiqiiily.' Tliat it 
M of u.rcul. antiqini)/ llicie can be no question, for as 
early as the Norman Conquest there were several 
faiin'lies of tlic name, residing ehicfly within a small 
compass, in the south part of the county of Devon- 
shire. In Dooms Day Book, six places arc mentioned 
as possessed by jiersons of the name. Indeed, 
we are told that ' lloniton, one of them, was 
well luiown to the Romans, and was held by Draoo 
the Saxon, before the conquest.'*, Ilcnco the fact 
that the Drakes were Saxons. 

How long families of the name had jiossessed those 
])lacos before the conquest, there remain no means 
of which I am aware to enable us to determine. Not 
long afi(;r the conquest of England by Willia\n of 
Normandy, however, we find a family seated at ICx- 
mouth, the head of which was JOHN DRAKE. 
But as the old author.s to whom we are indebted for 
this information arc so vague, we can with ditii-

roy, who wrote and jmhlishcd 'The Wortliirs of 
Devon,' speaking of tlio family sealed at Ashe, (in 
the parish of Mnshtiry, ahont 1;| miles to the sonlh ol' 
Axminsler,) snys, ' This ancient and honorahle liniiily 
came orii;nKiily from Exnionth, a small hamh^ton tlie 
cast side of the river Ex, where it Hows into the 
mouth of the British ocean. Here dvvcllelh .lOTUN 
DRAKE, a man of great estate, and a name of no 
less anticpiity.' For this account Prince acknowledges 
himself iudchted to Sir William Tolc, (descended 
from that family on the maternal side,) who says, ' I 
copied it out of an old Roll, and written all with mine 
own hand, in the month of April, in the year of our 
Lord God, IGIC." 

Much more that is curious might he said ahout the 
anli(|uities of the Ihmiiy, but this sketch will not al- 
low it. 

Of the origin of the name of DRAKl':, the armo- 
rial bearings are sudiciently indicative.* In rmnotc 
ages, as at present among uncultivated people, names 
are accpiircd from some circumstance, action, i-lnce, 
or object. That the original hearer of the arms 
(name) of DRAKE performed some act to cntiMc 
him to it, there is, perhaps, no rjuesiion, hut wiiat tlint 
precise act may have been, has long since passed biv 
yond the utmost bounds of the province of tradition.

A U M s 

of 
Drake. 



It is a maxim with tlic liciiilds, that Ihc more 
siiiijilc a coat of amis, the more aiiriont it is ; this is 
too obvious to need any other proof in support of it, 
tliau tlie repetition of the maxim ; which eminently 
appHes to the arms of DRAKE. 

The crest of tliis coat, as given by Gnilim, is an 
' Eagle displayed,' which seems to have been laid 
aside for the ' dexter arm erect, holding a batllcax,' 
some ages ago, but wherefore riocs not appear. The 
ni'iKo has always been : 

AQIIILA NON OAPIT MUSCAS. 

The figure in the shield, or escutcheon, is called by 
heralds, a iv'iveni, which is another name for the 
fabled Dragon of antiquity. Draco, or Drago, is the 
lioniau name of Drake, and as late as the lime of 
Sir Francis Duakt, writers frequently coupled his 
name with that of ]">ragon. Lope do Vega calls him 
by no other name throughout his long poem of ten 
books, which he composed about him ; and Sir 
Winston Churclrill (who married a Drake,) says Sir 
Francis found no Dragon more terrible than himself 
to guard the treasures of the Spaniards ; and surely

The lloinans had among; their legions, DiiAroNAini, 
u-ho were the bearers of their standards; h-ii.-e ilic 
name Drake may liavc been derived from that 
Koman o/licer. The Jvomans got. [he name from (li<' 
Greeks, and it seems to have been known (.ilu-i- llian 
an ideal one, from the Mcditenanc:in to the Haltic, 
in earlier and later limes. 

We find that the Drahon was displayed in llic 
banners of the Britons as early as 1418, and that 
churches have borne the emblem from time ininio- 
morial;* probably from a similar reason llint barba- 
rous nations worslii|) by iiropilintory n(rcrin,".> tb.n rvil

Many of those who liavc written books of Ik ral.li v, 
seem to have known bnt little about the origin of llic- 
arms of different families, or of those of the bramdics 
of the same family. Thus, when patents of anus 
were granted at different periods, and to dilli-ront 
persons, on different occasions, thoy of course dili'ored 
in their emblazoned devices. These consideralions 
being disregarded, we sec in some late books of 
heraldry, the same arms given to the two branches of 
the family of Diiakr, when in fact they should have 
been entirely diflerent, as tliey were conferred on 
differe it occasions, and at periods very remote from 
each other. But allhough the arms diller, the families

ORIGIN OF A SnCO.ND COAT. !'■] 

lUciiisclvcs liad actually the same origin; and it is 
only since the lime of the great naval oonmiandcr, 
thai two coats of arms, essentially dillcrenl. have 
heen in existence among the J)icaki;s. Of the origin 
of liic arms of the navigator it is luuieccssary to 
S[iealc, as all wiio liavc read of his wonderfid 
achievement, — and who has not? — the circnnniavi- 
gation of the world, almost in the infancy of J'>nglish 
navigation, to say nothing of others, do not require to 
be told, thai it was conferred to comnicinoralc, that 
event, that Queen ELizAnnxu created a new coat 
for him ; than which, nothing could have been better 
conceived, or more ajiinoprialc. 

It has always been a practice in ]']ngland for all 
persons who could trace a connexion to him who hud 
arms granted him, to a]>propriate to tin in • Ivi'S the 
same arms ; this is merely a customary thing, and 
only serves to show il\at Ihe possessor is allied l)y 
blood to liie original grantee. The more remote an 
individual is from liiLii to whom the honor was first 
given, the less he generally values it ; and many at 
this day, even in England, care very little about their 
family armrs; and when any of these emigrate to 
llepnhlican America, they often leave even the 
recollection of them behind. Hence, in the course of 
two or three generations, descendants do not know 
that their ancestors ever had any arms at all. 



EARLY NOTICES OF DUAKES.

Tints \vc meet with a few notices of individiinls, 
whose number might lie greatly increased probably, 
Rhonld anyone have the time and inclination to make 
further researches. As wc approach more modern 
ages their recurrence becomes so frequent that to 
admit them for a few years even, is not within my 
design. , 

Tlic name of RonERT, as has been seen, is a very 
prominent one among the Drakes. Dr, Calamy ' 
mentions among the ' Ejected Ministers,' Robert 
Drake of Monktoa "West, 'a very considerable man.' 
The father of Sir Francis was named Robert, and 
was also a minister, who, to avoid siilFering in the

There was, among the papers of .Tohii C'ollon of 
riymonth, a curious IMS. letter by one UOIUOH'L'' 
DRAKE, dated 21 Nov. IGSO, addressed to the then 
governors of New Ivigland. No places of wriliii!;! is 
indicated in it, but there is internal evidence Ihat il, 
was written out of New England. It, coiilains a 
strong warning to those governors, to be prepan-d for 
nn invasion, which England at that time was confi- 
dent the S|ianiards, French, and 1'nrks inleiidcd 
against her and her colonies. ' The lila7-ing star' had 
no small share in bringing such a conviction u]ion the 
inind of the author, as his letter shows. It was, in 
short, a poetical e]iisllc, of which the following 
extract is a specimen :

rary of Rorkut of INTonktou "West, il may yet he 
ascertained tliat he was the same indivitlual. 

It was JOHN DRAKE (13G0) before mentioned, 
or liis immediate descendant, who by his marriage 
with Christiana Bii.i,et, acquired the scat at Ashe, 
which was handed down in the name from father lo 
son for near four hundred years. This gentleman, as 
before observed, went from Exmoutli, and left at Iiis 
decease, a son, JOHN, who by a second marriage of 
his mother, was unlawfully excluded from the estate 
of Ashe. He went and settled at Otterton, but 
about sixteen miles from Ashe, and here founded the 
Otterton family of Drake, from whom was the father 
of Sir Francis, an early descendant of that house. 
He left a son and heir, JOHN, by his wife, Chris- 
tiana Antage, who inherited Otterton, and married 
a Ckuwys of Crnwys INIorchard, and was succeeded 
by his son, JOHN, who, by Agnes Kelloway, had a 
son JOHN, who by a suit at law reovered Ashe, 
which had been so long and so unjustly withheld 
from his father, grand-father, and gi-cat-grand-fathcr.

JOHN DRAKE, of the council of Plymouth, nue 
of the original company estahli.-hcd hy King James 
in inO(>, for settling New England, was a branch of 
the family of Ashe, several of whose sons came to 
this coimtry. 

JOHN, who came to ]3oslon in lOno, with two or 
more sons, anil who (iually settled in A\'indsor, 
ROBERT, also with two or more sons and one 
daughter, who settled at Hampton in N. J I. 

From these brothers arc desccndt'd all of the name 
in New JMigland, and most, if not alf of those bearing

it in llic midillc, soulhcni, and wcslcin stales. AVc 
liowcvcr meet with some modern cniigiauts of llic 
imnic, but Ihcy arc not niuncrons. 

A member of the family of JOHN, last mentioned, 
settled in Taimlon, jNIass., and tUenco his couiu-xions 
and descendants spread into I\liildK'boroiigli, W'ey- 
moulli, Sharon, i.V:c., in the county of Plymoutli in 
the same slate. Wkh all lliese, the laiiiili(-s of 
^\'indsor, Conn., and liam^iton, JV. 11 , were coiuieeled. 
At least, so goes the Iradilion, and there is nothing 
which 1 can yet discover to disprove it. i\Ir. A\'ir,- 
LiAM DuAici:, of jMiddleboro', Mass, a soldier of the 
revolution, now near ninety, told me many years ago, 
in a call I made upon him, that he used to hear it said 
by old people, when ho was young, that his ancestor 
was a brother of Hobert of Hampton. Mr. Ai-ruKus 
Drake of Portland has the same tradition, but has 
no knowledge of William, just mentioned, though 
lie is descended from the same uncestor; his father 
having emigrated to I\Iainc when ho was a lad. 



As !i specimen of llin ni.'umcr and form in ■which 
our nnccslors Irausaclod important matters, the wir.r. 
of the first of the Drakes is given. Ami as a curi- 
o.sity, llie inventory of his estate, real and iiersoual, 
follows. This is not only curious, but exceedingly 
valuable, as shovi'ing relatively the value of property. 



FIRST nilAICRS IN' NKH' r.NGI.A N'D. 



not only by a comparison of clifTcrcnt commodities nt 
that (l;iy, but by a comparison of similar comiiioiliiirs 
of that day with our own. ]}y it wc sec bow much 
nwro nil kinds of tools and lioiiscbold utensils were 
prized then than now; of what small value land wns 
consiilcrcd to be, cnm)iared to artii:les now so ca.sdy 
man u lac In red and of such superior workmanshi[) to 
those then in use. A rough iron bolt was worth 
almost as much then as one of ocpial wcij^bt of silver 
would be at tliis time. Tim hundred yrars ! 7\las, 
what a change there bas been ! Now, a grvthman 
m our streets would think it degrading to jiick up 
from the dirt that which our fathers would have 
walked several miles to obtain. 

Wc can learn but very little about riOm-n'T 
DRAKE'S personal history, except that he m;\s .i 
man of eminent piety, and highly respected. Anion:,' 
the owners of the Great Ox Common, which was 
divided into 78 shares, one was assigned to ' ould j\Ir. 
Drake' in 1G51. That he should bo thus designated 
is not strange, for he was scvcnty-one years of ngc at 
that date. 

On the 15lh of March, 10-50, 'Uorekt Duakk 
entered his causion about a house and lands bought 
of rfrancis Tcaboddic, lying and being within the 
bounds of Hampton.' On the 2.0lh of the same 
month, Fancis Teabody of Hampton sold to llonunT 
Drake of Exeter, for X75 13s., a dwelling-house nnd 
honsc-lot, and six acres of fresh meadow, beyond the 
Mill Brook*

rcinnins of my early friend John FAniMr.it. 

SiMKON DiiAKE, uiihke all liis brollicrs, was of 
a slender constitution, and cnrly abandoned liis 
farm, and went into trade, in wliich lie was unsuc- 
cessful; owing partly to the cniliarso of ISO", and 
more perhaps to a want of a knowledge in the ' mys- 
teries of trade.' If henevolcnro he a fault, then this 
whole family of hrolhcrs were all fatdly in no slight 
dep'ce; and the lionevolencc of Simkon fo far 
outwent his discretion, that he involved himself to 
benefit others. This with the ' change of limes,' 
brought ruin in their train, from the effects of which 
lie never recovered. 

There are no ])aintings of portraits of any of the 
hrothers of this family of which I am aware, and it 
maybe gratifying to some of the descendants of 
Mit. Simeon Dhakt. to know, that some of the 
engraved jiorlraits of the Jtci'. Philip Dothhiili^c 
aiii'ro.ich tolerably near to a gooil likeness of him. 

Mii9. Dkakk was descended, on her father's side, 
from the ancient family of Tit'kk of Gorhton, 
county of Suffolk, England. ]{onKRT Tiicit^; of 
that place having eomo to New ICngliind before 
1C..3G, orin that year; was among the first juiipri- 
ctors of Hampton, N. H. He had a son John, who 
d. in 1742, K. OO, who had a son John, a graduate 
of Harvard rollcgc, 172.), and 40 years minister of 
fiosport, N. H., who d. in 177.1, a'. 71 ; whose S(m 
John, (her father.) grad. H. C, )7.'")8, minister of 
Epsom, N. H. till the commencement of the revolu- 
tion, when he received the appointment of chaplain 
to the nnny ; and while ]«occcding to join liis reg- 
iment at Pcekskill on the North Uiver, was siezed 
with the iimall-]]ox, which terminated his life in the 
town of Salem, N. Y., 9 Feb. 1777, in the 37th year 
of his age.
