bullet  General Notes:

John Drake, Esq of Mount Drake and Exmouth, in the county of Devon, "a man of great estate and a name of no less antiquity," says Prince in his "Worthies of Devon" married in the time of Henry V (1413-1422)
Christiana, daughter and heiress of John Dillett of Ashe. By this alliance the estate of Ashe, in the parish of MUSBURY, came to the Drake family, and was handed down father to son for fully 400 yrs, although the most usual place of residence was Mount Drake, a mansion previously built by them in the same parish and undoubtedly the original home of the Drakes. They having occupied it since the coming of William the Conqueror. This John Drake or possibly his father, was reported in Exmouth in 1360.
