Name: Sir Francis Henry DRAKE
Francis with two of his brothers, Joseph and Bampfield, his wife Mary and their son, James, then six years old (1733) came to America from England in 1733 and first settled in Surry County, Virginia.
His brothers Joseph and Bamphylde, Jr. were scalped by Indians (they left no issue). At the same time James, son of Francis, was captured by the Indians. For a large reward, he was delivered to his father by friendly Indians.
Later, while prospecting in Austin Sledges in the woods near where his brothers had been killed, Francis was shot at by Indians. Being disgusted with this section of the country, he moved his family to Edgecombe County, now Nash County, North Carolina. There he was granted a tract of land - 2000 acres of which was in Swift County. He and his wife Mary were buried near Drake's Bridge, Swift Creek, Nash County, North Carolina.
This Francis Drake is not to be confused with Francis Drake, son of Richard who owned land in Orange and Chatham Counties in NC.
