  • He was the eldest son of John Drake, gentleman, of Ash in the parish of Musbury, Devon, and his wife, Amy, daughter of Sir Roger Grenville. Richard Drake was his brother. He was a first cousin of Roger Grenville, who was captain of the Mary Rose when it sank in 1545 and father of Sir Richard Grenville, the Elizabethan explorer. Sir Bernard's aunt, Alice Drake, married Walter Raleigh and became the step-mother of Sir Walter Raleigh, the explorer and poet. Bernard Drake was a second cousin of William Pole, the antiquary. Bernard was possibly also a distant kinsman of Sir Francis Drake, the circumnavigator; the existence of such a kinship was a controversy even during their lifetimes. Bernard succeeded his father in 1558.

   Dear Karen,
   Thank you for the heroic typing job on the Drake entry from Burke.
   If I had typed that my arm would be falling off or I would wish it
   would.
   Unfortunately, Burke is not generally considered a reliable source,
   especially as he or they quote no sources.
   But even if Burke were a totally reliable source, I do not see anything
   which indicates that John of Windsor is connected to that family. This
   is something which still needs to be proved. I do not believe that this
   is going to happen. But I am not infallible either.
