Sir Francis Drake had many brothers, but left his money to the youngest, Thomas.
He had planned to leave his money to Francis Drake, the son of Richard Drake, but for some reason, he changed his mind and left his estate to Thomas.
We have visited his home of Buckland Abby, near Plymouth. Devon, England. Beautiful place. My wife is a descendant of Richard Drake and wife Christian Fawcett.
Richard came to Virginia colonies in1658, and died 1689 in Virginia.
