Name Variation Sir Barnard Drake is also known as Sir Bernard Drake.4 
Birth*He was born circa 1528 in Parish of Musbury, Ashe, Devonshire, England.2,3,5 
He was the son of John Drake Esq. and Annye Grenville.1 
Marriage*Sir Barnard Drake married Gertrude Fortescue of Filleigh, daughter of Bartholomew Fortescue Esq. of Filleigh and Ellen Moore of Moor Hayes in Cullompton, in 1563.3 
Knighted*Sir Barnard Drake was knighted on 5 January 1585 in Greenwich, Middlesex County, England. According to the Drake Family History, Sir Barnard was 'knighted at Greenwich, January 9, 1585. He was a very distinguished person and 'employed in several great offices at sea,' being much in favour with Queen Elizabeth, who conferred the honour of knighthood upon him. 'Prince, in his 'Worthies of Devon,' pp. 328, 329, says of him: I find him to descend down to us under a very honourable character. That he was a gentleman or rare and excellent accomplishments, and as well qualified for a soldier as a courtier; he was in great favour with that illustrious Princess of immortal memory--Queen Elizabeth--and of high esteem in her courts.... That Sir Barnard Drake, a Devonshire Knight, came to Newfoundland with a commission, and having divers good ships under his command he took many Portugal ships and brought them into England as prizes. And for his great undertaking this way he is ranked the second among the most famous sea captains of our country in his time,--than whom no age before or since can boast of greater.' He is said to have 'bobly expended.. for the honour and safety of his country in the discovery of foreign regions and such other virtuous achievements as purchase glory and renown,' so as 'greatly to have exhausted his estates.' Sir Bernard's last exploit was while England was at war with Spain, when having been at sea, on his return he took a large Portugal ship which had for a long season been hovering up and down the coast and brought her into the harbour of Dartmouth, which action, 'how brave soever it might be, proved fatal to himself and many other persons of quality.' Prince says, 'Sir Barnard Drake having taken a Portugal ship and brought her into one of our Western ports the seaman that were therein were sent to the prison adjoining to the castle of Exeter. At the next assizes held at the castle there, about the 27th of Queen Elizabeth, when the prisoners of the country were brouht to be arraigned before Sergeant Flowerby, one of the Judges appointed for his Western Circuit at that time, suddenly there arose such a noisom smess from the bar that a great number of the persons present were therewith infected, whereof in a short time after died Sir John Chichester, Sir Arthur Basset and Sir Barnard Drake Kinghts and Justices of the Peace then sitting on the bench, and eleven of the Jury impanelled, the 12th man only escaping, with divers other persons.' There is a monument of Sir Barnard Drake in the present Filleigh Church, built after the demolition of an older edifice. Also, the monument of his grave at Parish Church of Musbury mentions that he had three sons and three daughters, five living at his death: John, Hugh, Marie, Margaret and Helen.2,6,4 
Death*He died on 10 April 1586 in Ashe, Musbury, Devonshire, England; he died of typhus.2,6 
Burial*He was buried on 12 April 1586 in Drake Tombs in the Parish Church, Musbury, Devonshire, England, 50.746691,-3.033360. Inscription on tomb: "Heere is the monument of Sir Barnard Drake, knight, who had to wife Dame Garthruyd, the daughter of Bartholomew ffortescue, of ffilleigh, Esq., by whom he had three sons and three daughters, whereof were five living at his death, viz., John, Hugh, Margaret, Mary and Ellen; he died 10 Ap., 1586, and Dame Garthruyd his wife was heere buried 12 ffeb. 1601, unto the memory of whom John Drake, Esq., his son, hath set this monument, A.D. 1611."2,6

It joined the Bridgewater line north of Stone House Hill, and probably included what was known a century later as North Daily Place. The remains of the cellar may still be seen [in 1895]; the massive door-step, a good bulkhead way and other signs are indications of a well appointed house.'
