    2. Frances born 26 Aug 1855, Spring Bay, Tas
    History & Achievements :
     
    Samuel farmed on his property called "Beccles" in the Spring Bay District on the East Coast of Tasmania. We have no information on his military service, other than he was listed as a Private in 63rd Regt. when his child Samuel was born in 1829, Hobart. I feel that the Frances Drake also listed in the 63rd Regt. may possibly be a brother.
