Drake af Hagelsrum, släkt, by the Swedish Biographical Dictionary

Drake af Hagelsrum, frälsesläkt, en utgrenirig av ätten Hand (se denna). Field Colonel Knut Håkansson's (Hand) son with Märta Arvidsdotter (of Västbo-Drakarna, see genealogy. Above) the governor Arvid Knut's son Drake (d. Trol. 1618; see below 1) received 26 Nov. 1574 K. permission to take the mother's name Drake; although he himself usually also carried the Dragon weapon, his relatives kept the ancestral weapon (hand). Of his sons are the governor Knut Drake (d. 1639; see below 2) and the governor Hans Drake (d. 1653; see below 3). The son of Knut D. was Major General Erik Drake (d. 1673; see below 4), the son of Hans was again the infamous one! the pirate Gustaf Drake (d. 1684; see below 5). Knut D:'s older son and Erik D:'s brother the captain (in a letter from the Riksdag in 1676 called Major) Magnus Drake (b. 1616, d. 1693) served during the Thirty Years' War 1633-37 in the German regiments in Swedish service, among others. a. under Field Marshal A. Leslie, but must return home for injuries that particularly injured his arms. As a great landlord, he took a prominent position in Ydre, was enterprising and successful, took up new plantations, built roads, donated to the parish church Sundi and maintained the parish's poor. His sons Captain Hans Leonard Drake (b. 1663, d. 1722) and Lieutenant Carl Magnus Drake (d. 1739; see below 6) became the ancestors of two still living main lines of the family. Both members lived for a long time mostly as rural lieutenants, and the older line was particularly attached to Ydre härad (Ög.). "In Ydre ... I then had the honor of becoming acquainted with Bockar, Ulfvar, Räfvar and Drakar, gentlemen of mediocre ambition and thoroughness of mind, as well as among the oldest families", wrote Eric Benzelius in 1732. The older line included HL D's great - grandson's son the musician Professor Erik Drake (d. 1870; see below 7). The younger line included CM D's great-grandchildren's educator Gustaf Axel Ludvig Drake (d. 1893; see below 8) and Baptist Magnus Adolf Gottlob Drake (d. 1906; see below 9), who were weddings.

The older line D. also included Professor E. D.'s nephew's son, the pharmacist in Hälsingborg, Gustaf Drake (b. 1877, d. 1939), mainly known as a Linnaeus researcher. He has published a large number of writings, mostly of pharmacological-medical-historical content about Linnaeus, and thereby performed an important and meritorious work for the medical-historical Linnaeus research. Bl. a. may be mentioned his useless overview «Linnaeus' disputations» (1939). DG purchased and supplemented a large family archive concerning the family D. af Hagelsrum, which archive according to his wishes was handed over after his death to Uppsala University Library 1940 (27 vols., Sign. X 257 d: l and follow.) He has in connection for this archive also prepared a typewritten genealogy, «The gamble Dragons» (eg in the National Archives and Uppsala University Library).
