John Drake1,2,3,4,5

b. 11 December 1687, d. between 6 February 1779 and 28 February 1779

  • John Drake was baptized on 11 December 1687 at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York; witnesses: Adam Brouw de Jonge (the younger), Antje Brouwer.6
  • He married Martha Oldfield, daughter of Joseph Oldfield and Martha Grasset, bef 1721 if the assumption that Martha is the mother of all of John Drake's children is correct. They were certainly married prior to 14 May 1741, in which case Martha may be a second wife of John Drake, and mother to only some, or none, of his children.7
  • John Drake died between 6 February 1779 and 28 February 1779 at Goshen, Orange Co., New York.
  • He is said to have married Magdalena Jacobse Brouwer, daughter of Jacob Adamsz Brouwer and Annetje Bogardus, in 1718 or 4 February 1720 William J. Hoffman covers this claim in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 24:31) under his sketch of John Drake with "Statements about his (John Drake's) marriage or marriages are not established by record proof. In his will (1779) he mentions his wife Martha. Information about him has been published in the Drake Genealogy by Avery and in Chambers' Early Germans of New Jersey in which there are mistakes. He has been given Magdalena Brouwer for a wife, apparently the daughter of that name of Jacob Brouwer and Annatje Bogardus bapt. NYDR Mar. 8, 1704, the only Magdalena who can be considered, since the marriages of contemporaries of that name have been established. The marriage date has variously been given as Feb. 4, 1720 and 1718. In the later year the bride would have been 14 years old. These dates are said to have been taken from Bible records, as also the names and birth dates of their children whose baptismal dates are not found on record. I have no knowledge where these Bible records are at present."8
  • John Drake was baptized as Jan Dreets.9
  • , Three deeds found in Kings County Deeds vol.4 describe transactions involving the same piece of property. The property, a house and garden spot situate in the town of Flatlands in Kings County, was described as "bounded on the north by the highway, south and east by the heirs of Gerrit Coerten deceased, and west by Hermanus Hoogelandt, containing two acres be it more or less." On 18 July 1717 Rutgert Waldron of New York City, and his wife Cornelia, sold the property to Josiah Drake of Oyster Bay in Queens County for £85. Next, by an indenture dated 28 Aug 1716, the same Rutger Waldron and his wife Cornelia, sold this property to John Drake of Jamaica in Queens County for £85. This deed, which pre-dates the prior deed by almost a year, was not recorded until 9 June 1720. Finally, by an indenture dated 12 April 1719, Josias Drake of Flatlands, conveyed this property to John Drake of Jamaica for the same £85. By this deed, Josias signed his name as Ijoseijas Drake. It is not certain wether the Josiah/Josias Drake mentioned in these deeds is father or son.10
  • On 15 December 1735 Indenture between Richard Halsted of Goshen, yeoman, and John Drake of the same place, weaver. For consideration of £5 received from John Drake, said Richard Halsted conveys to said John Drake a tract of land lying and being in Orange County, New York in the east division called Wawayanda, bounded northerly on the highway, southerly and easterly by Richard Halsted... Recorded 5 Apr 1742 by request of Richard Halsted before Thomas Gale, Justice of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas.11
  • On 8 April 1745 Recorded with the Orange County Clerk at the request of John Drake, an indenture made 20 Jun 1740 between Silas Benjamin and David Benjamin of Goshen, Orange County, New York, yeomen, of the one part and John Drake of the same place of the other part. For consideration of £26 paid by John Drake, said Silas Benjamin and David Benjamin convey to said John Drake all that certain tract of land situate and being in the east division of Goshen, that is to say, 50 acres of a certain lott of land known by number six, part of the lot bounded south by a lot lately sold by Jonathan Benjamin to Capt. Thomas Ellison of Newtown and north by the lott belonging to Hope Roads of Jamaica on Nassau Island and the late Thomas Watson in partnership and east and west on the two great roads.12
  • On 4 December 1750 Indenture between John Drake of Goshen, Orange Co., New York, yeoman, and Ebenezer Seely of the same place, yeoman. For £120, John Drake conveys to Ebenezer Seely a tract of land situate in the patent of Wawayanda, Orange County, containing 220 acres which John Drake purchased from Joseph Sacket, Junr. of Goshen by deed dated ___ April 1744. Wit.: Michael Jackson and William Jackson.13
  • His will was dated on 6 February 1779 proved 28 Jan. 1780. Calls himself "John Drake of Goshen Precinct, Orange County, yeoman." Mentions his wife Martha, sons Benjamin, Joseph, Samuel, William, and Zephaniah, heirs of son John, daughters Martha Jackson, Mary Holly, and Esther Knapp, and granddaughters Martha and Mary, daughters of Joseph Holly. Lists his home farm, land in Queens and Kings Counties inherited from grandfather Adam Brewer, and personal estate. Executors were Capt. Covil Bradner and son Joseph. Witnesses: Daniel Vail of Goshen, weaver, Isaac Smith, and W. Thompson.14,15
  • Lena Brouwer and Nicholas Birdsall Brower asked the Chancery Court of Dutchess County on 17 April 1833, to take depositions from William Lane and Josiah Drake. Their reasons stated were that they expect to be made a party (with other devices and heirs of Annetie Jans widow of Domine Everardus Bogardus, deceased) in a suit in some Court, concerning the title to certain lands in the City of New York.
    The deposition of William Lane was taken at his house in the town of New Paltz, Ulster County on 23 May 1833. In his deposition William Lane states that he is 75 years of age, and that his mother, Elizabeth Drake, was the daughter of William Drake, and that William Drake was the son of Magdalena Brower and John Drake to whom the said Magdalena Brower had been married. The deponent further states that the said Magdalena was the sister of Adolphus Brouwer, and that the said Magdalena and Adolphus were the children of Jacob Brouwer and Annetie his wife, formerly Annetie Bogardus. That the said Magdalena was the mother of Josiah Drake and great-grandmother of Helena Manning, the said Helenor Manning being a daughter of Nicholas Brouwer who was the son of Adolphus who was the son of Jacob Brouwer.
    The deponent then claims that the said Magdalena and her husband lived on a farm in New York called the Domine's Hook containing upwards of 130 acres, and that Magdalena claimed the land as hers. The deponent understood and believes that the house was burnt down during the Revolutionary War while Magdalena lived there. The deponent heard that the Church of England claimed the property and that he understood that there had been lawsuits regarding the property but did not know the particulars.
    (This account of William Lane's, specifically with regard th the claim that Magdalena Brower and John Drake were the parents of William Drake and Josiah Drake, is not consistant with other evidence, particularly with the claim that John Drake was the father of William and Josiah. What is of concern is that William Lane, having been born in 1758, would have had the opportunity to personally know his claimed great-grandfather, John Drake, who was living as late as 1779.).16
  • John Drake is expanded upon in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 24:31) by Hoffman: "He served as a private in Capt. Wolsey's Queens Co. Militia. He lived first at Jamaica, L.I., where as Johannes Drack he subscribed on April 29, 1715, to the church. In 1721 when apparently he left there, his pew fell to the church...(see below for the discussion on his alleged marriage to Magdalena Brouwer)... It has also been suggested that the Martha mentioned in John's will was Martha Oldfield of Jamaica, possibly a granddaughter of Joseph Oldfield whose will is dated 1760 and proved 1765, and a daughter of Joseph's son Anthony D.L. Jacobus, founder and editor of TAG, interjects here with "John Drake was 73 years old in 1760 when Joseph Oldfield made his will, and Oldfield's granddaughter Martha was then under age, so such an identification of Drake's wife seems incredible"and in [fact Martha was a daughter and not a granddaughter of Joseph Oldfield]. But again, marriage records have not survived and the problem of John's marriage(s) is still unsolved. Of the twelve children mentioned in the Bible records, nine were mentioned in his will. John Drake settled in Orange Co., N.Y., where he purchased land in Chester in 1735."2
  • Jacob Drake has been incorrectly placed in the family of John Drake However, Jacob, who died in 1823, is not named in the will of John Drake, and is more likely not a son.
  • Everardus Drake has been incorrectly placed in the family of John Drake Everardus Drake is claimed as a son of John Drake and Martha Oldfield in Drake Family in England and America (1896) p.294. However, no son by that name is mentioned in John Drake's Feb 6, 1779 will.
  • Francis Drake has been incorrectly placed in the family of John Drake Francis Drake is claimed as a son of John Drake and Martha Oldfield in Drake Family in England and America (1896) p.294. However, no son by that name is mentioned in John Drake's Feb 6, 1779 will.
  • In his 1780 will, John Drake of Goshen, New York mentions his grandfather Adam Brouwer in the following context: All my right, title interest, share and proportion of in and to all and singular my lands, meadows and mills with the appurtenances situate lying and being in Kings and Queens Counties on Long Island and which descended to me on the death of my grandfather Adam Brewer, dec'd to be equally divided between them share and share alike to have and to hold the same to them their heirs and assigns forever as tenants in common and not as joint-tenants. Why John Drake, in 1780, would assume that he still had ownership in property once owned by his grandfather, Adam Brouwer, is not clear. All of Adam's heirs, his son-in-law Josias Drats included, sold their shares in the mill property to Adam's sons Abraham and Nicholas, shortly after Adam's death. By 1719, son Abraham Brouwer was sole owner of all these properties, and his heirs continued ownership until the late 1790's. In fact, in 1780, which was the middle of the Revolutionary War, the mill at Gowanus lay in ruins, having been burned by George Washington's retreating army.17
  • The dates of birth for the children of John Drake are from Lillian Drake Avery who states as her source a Family Bible record. This Bible record has not been located for verification.18

Josias Drake

b. 28 May 1682

  • Josias Drake was baptized on 28 May 1682 at Amersfoort, Kings Co., Long Island, New York; witnesses Willem Brouwer, Elisabeth Brouwer.1
  • Also known as Josias Drets.1
  • Also known as Josias Draatz.
  • , Three deeds found in Kings County Deeds vol.4 describe transactions involving the same piece of property. The property, a house and garden spot situate in the town of Flatlands in Kings County, was described as "bounded on the north by the highway, south and east by the heirs of Gerrit Coerten deceased, and west by Hermanus Hoogelandt, containing two acres be it more or less." On 18 July 1717 Rutgert Waldron of New York City, and his wife Cornelia, sold the property to Josiah Drake of Oyster Bay in Queens County for £85. Next, by an indenture dated 28 Aug 1716, the same Rutger Waldron and his wife Cornelia, sold this property to John Drake of Jamaica in Queens County for £85. This deed, which pre-dates the prior deed by almost a year, was not recorded until 9 June 1720. Finally, by an indenture dated 12 April 1719, Josias Drake of Flatlands, conveyed this property to John Drake of Jamaica for the same £85. By this deed, Josias signed his name as Ijoseijas Drake. It is not certain wether the Josiah/Josias Drake mentioned in these deeds is father or son.2
  • Administration of Josias Drake's estate was granted on 23 February 1735 administration on the estate of Josiah Drake of Middlesex Co., New Jersey was granted, "Int. of John Berrien, merchant, of Somerset Co., as administrator. Andrew Hay of Perth Amboy, innkeeper, fellow bondsman."3,4
  • Josias Drake is NOT Joseph Driggs as proved by recent DNA testing of direct descendants of both Josias Janszen Drats and Joseph Driggs. According to published accounts of the descendants of Joseph Driggs, of Middletown and East Haddam, Connecticut (Driggs Family History, two volumes, 1959, and 1971) who contend that the Driggs family progenitor, Joseph Driggs was born Josias Drats/Drake, Jr., son of Josias "de Raet" and Aeltje Brouwer. This idea, however, has now been disproved. DNA test results (Dec. 2008) of a confirmed direct descendant of Joseph Driggs have been compared to the previously acquired DNA test results of a number of different descendants of Josias Janszen Drats. It is clear that any common ancestor, shared between the Driggs and Drats/Drake families, would have lived thousands of years ago. It is very clear, that a common ancestor could NOT have lived within the past eight to ten generations or within the past 300 years (see footnote).5,6

Josias Drake

b. 1 July 1750, d. between 17 April 1832 and 20 November 1833

  • Josias Drake was born on 1 July 1750 at Fishkill, Dutchess Co., New York.1
  • Josias Drake was probably the Josias Drake who married Antje Janssen before 1773 (son William baptized at New Hackensack, 28 Aug 1774).2
  • Josias Drake died between 17 April 1832 and 20 November 1833 at probably New Paltz, Ulster Co., New York.
  • Also known as Josiah Drake.3
  • Also known as Jesajas Drake.2
  • He was a Revolutionary War soldier. On 4 March 1831, Josiah Drake of Ulster County received the first payment of a pension for his service during the Revolutionary War. He served as a private in Capt. Hasbrouck's Co. His application for a pension is dated 19 April 1823(?).4
  • He appeared on the census in 1790 at New Paltz, Ulster Co., New York, with a household of 2 males over 16, 3 males under 16, 4 females.5
  • He appeared on the census in 1810 at New Paltz, Ulster Co., New York, as Josiah Drake, with a household of 1 male 16-25, 2 males over 45, a female over 45. He is followed on the census sheet by Gilbert Drake and then John Drake.6
  • He appeared on the census in 1820 at New Paltz, Ulster Co., New York, as Josiah Drake, with a household of 1 male under 10, 1 male 16-26, 1 male over 45, 1 female under 10, 1 female 26-45, 1 female over 45. He is enumerated next to John Drake.7
  • He appeared on the census in 1830 at New Paltz, Ulster Co., New York, with a household of 1 male under 5, 1 male 15-20, 1 male 20-30, 1 male 60-70, 1 female 20-30, 1 female 60-70.8
  • On 29 Oct 1831, in Ulster County, Josiah Drake was deposed before Reuben H. Hine, J.P. and Comm. of Deeds for Ulster County. Josiah states that he lives in the town of New Paltz and states that Hellenah Manning is the daughter of Nicholas Brower and Sarah Drake, "all of which the said Josiah Drake knows of his own personal knowledge being personally acquainted with them." Josiah further states that Nicholas Brower is the son of Adolphus Brower and Adolphus was the son of Jacob Brower and Annette Bogardus, the wife of Jacob Brower. Josiah states that one other daughter of Annatie Bogardus and Jacob Brower the said Josiah believes was named Magdalena Brower and the said Magdalena was the grandmother of Josiah Drake and the great grandmother of the above named Hellenah Manning and the above named Sarah Drake is the daughter of William Drake and William Drake was the son of Magdalena Brower who is the daughter of Jacob Brower and Annatie Bogardus.
    (This deposition creates more questions then it answers. Josiah does not state who he believes Magdalena Brower was married to. Early, accounts of the Brower-Drake families have claimed that Magdalena was the wife of John Drake, while 20th century genealogical research has concluded that John Drake's wife was Martha Oldfield]. Josiah does not state who his parents are, but states that he is a grandson of Magdalena Brower [Josiah cannot be John Drake's son, Joseph, as he died in 1808]. Could Josiah be implying that Magdalena was married to a brother of John Drake, possibly Josiah, b. 1683? Might John Drake have been married twice, first to Magdalena Brouwer and second to Martha Oldfield?9
  • His will was dated on 17 April 1832 proved 20 Nov 1833. "Josiah Drake of New Paltz, County of Ulster, State of New York, in a weak state of health but in a sound mind and memory...To my children my land and tenaments and moveables unto my children who I shall herein name that is to say unto William Drake...John Drake...Elizabeth Devoe wife of Jacob Devoe...Gilbert Drake...Catherine Bush wife of Jacob Bush...Sarah Palmatier wife of Jacob Palmatier...Isaac Drake." Appoints Jacob Bush, John Drake and Isaac Drake as sole executors. Signed by Josiah Drake. Witnessed by Andrew Verwig, James Wells, and Margaret Vandefort (her mark).10
