Sorry to tell you this but Sir Francis Drake,the Admiral had no children but 2 wives. He had some brothers you might be related to though. You might want to join the Drake Mail List on Rootsweb. It's free as well. Write Drake@Rootsweb.com & put Subscribe in the Subject line. There are a lot of Drake researchers on the Mail List.

Captain Francis Drake was in NH. & NJ. in the 1600's as well. Who were your Drakes in NH.? Thanks!
Hi again, I have researched a bit further about Drake and Vacher who lived in Milton Abbas, Dorset, England for near 200 years. Between late 1600s and late 1800s. I am still deliberating to find the connection between my great grandmother Drake and Sir Francis Drake. I only could go back to 1691. The last person is James Drake. He was married to Ursula Vacher (1703-1766). There is over 150 years gap between Sir Francis Drake (1540-1596) and James Drake (1691-1766).
Are you connected to Captain Francis Drake of Piscataway,Middlesex Co.,NJ. as well? I am according to DNA test results. He was in NH. before going to NJ.
Where are your Drakes from? Mine come from NJ.,PA.MD.OH.,WV. Thanks!
I'm a decendant of the Drakes. My grandmother was a Drake. I have history on the family going back to the 1300's.
Sorry, Stacy, I don't have any information going back that far.
Luck to ya.
