Drake, Thomas

Birth Name Drake, Thomas 1a
Gender male
Age at Death (less than 1519 years)


Thomas held in Court on June 3, 1544, that he had surrendered his father's lands to the use of William Drake. His oldest daughter was baptised in May 1547. Since Thomas was older than his brother John, and John was most likely born prior to 1525, it is doubtful that Thomas was born any later than 1524.
