Did You Know?

  • The person who filled in the register for the marriage of Wm Drage and Ann Wattson in Barkway in 1795 spelled the bride's surname with two 't's, but she signed her name with one.
  • Although they married before 1837, when the father's name began to be given in marriage register entries, census evidence suggests that Mary Drage and Lucy Drage were daughters of Wm Drage. Maria Drage is another possible child, as is Samuel Drage.
  • Although the relationship is not specified, the informant on Wm Drage's death certificate may have been Mary Drage.
  • 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.
