Drake, Thomas

Birth Name Drake, Thomas
Gender male
Age at Death unknown


From "Drake in England" p. 77: "...whose father Edmund Drake was presented as having died since the last Court on 17 October 1471 'and none came to claim his lands.' Thomas must then have been living outside of the manor for it is not until the Court held on 7 August 1477 that he petitioned as his father's son and heir to be admitted to the tenement called Drakes which was held freely by charter. Owing to the loss of the Court Rolls for the years 1484-1509 it has not been possible to find either the name of his wife or the date of his death." However, based on a court record involving Thomas' son (also Thomas) it would appear that his son was probably born prior to 1457 and that, therefore this Thomas was born no later than 1437.
