About Eleanor Crandall

She is said to have been from Scottish descent.


  • Although listed in many trees as the daughter of Elizabeth Prideaux b 1523 & Robert Drake b 1528 it is not possible be born about 1585 to these parents as mother would have been in her 60's at the time of this Elizabeth's birth!
  • The Crandall genealogy by John Cortland Crandall likely errs in providing an undocumented lineage for Elder John. That work stated that he was the son of John and Elizabeth (Drake) Crandall.
    • Elizabeth Drake was a first cousin, once removed, of Sir Francis Drake.
    • However, no collaborating documentation has been located in England of a couple by the name of John and Elizabeth Drake Crandall.
    • Several members of the Crandall Family Association have done research using parish records from Westerleigh which indicates that Elder John was the son of James and Eleanor (---) Crandall. This work cannot be underestimated in its importance in establishing Elder John's parentage.
    • It is hoped that further research on the Crandall heritage will help to further elucidate the story of the Crandalls in England and America.
