Did You Know?

  • The marriages of Thomas Drage and Gillet Drage are consecutive entries in the Great Hormead parish register, as are the baptisms of their sons William Drage and Gillet Drage.
  • The burials of William Drage and his widow Mary Waring are consecutive entries in the burial ground register.
  • On the basis of dates it's possible that Drage the five year-old 'Daughter of William Drage' buried in the independent burial ground in February 1806 was the daughter of William Drage not his son Wm Drage as I have assigned her, as William senior had had a child baptised in 1797. However, the fact that that I've not found a baptism for a child of William senior around 1801 makes me think that she is more likely to be the daughter of William junior, who was a dissenter and didn't have any of his children baptised.
  • William Drage and his wife Mary Waring had at least 35 grandchildren!
