This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

William Drake
BLG1847 provides 2 connections between the Palmer family, which is the subject of its article, and Sir Bernard Drake of Ash (d 1586) who is shown on the continuation as father of this William.
* The first connection is to Thomas Drake of Yardbury, identified as "great-grandson of Sir Bernard Drake, of Ash". We speculate that this William was grandfather of that Thomas.
* The second connection mentions this William and his "only child" Mary. That contradicts our speculation that William was grandfather of Thomas but BLG1847 notes that Mary was "a great favourite with" Queen Anne who r. 1702-1714, making the dates look wrong. Aalthough there a later Sir Bernard Drake (d 1687, great-great-grandson of the one just mentioned), he had just one daughter, Elizabeth (not Mary). We speculate that Mary was grandchild rather than child of this William which is perhaps still unlikely - but at least we keep the information provided by BLG1847, which is the main purpose of this section.
