I am also related to the same Drakes as you with my lineage as follows:

We are known as the Drakes of Isle of Wight, Virginia. We have traced Richard back to England but lost the family in Somerset. If anyone can help with our England Drakes it would be greatly appreciated.
We have also been told we where related to Sir Francis Drake but we have not way to verify it.
