red mail Francis Drake son of Elizabeth (nee Stevens)
Just wondering if I have any relatives out there. My Great-Great-Grandfather, known as Francis (Frank) Drake Stevens told the family he took his mother's maiden name when he "jumped ship" to emigrate to Australia, leaving the Navy where he was a cabin boy. He was born Francis Drake to John & Elizabeth Drake (nee Stevens) and grew up in Bere Alston. My Grandmother and her brother and sisters remember letters being sent to and received from their Grandfather's Drake relatives in Bere Alston. In Australia, Frank married the much-younger Lillie Ada Morris in 1887 and my Great-Grandmother (their eldest daughter) was born in 1888, to give a timeline. Thanks, Michele
