I am researching the Drake ancestory. My great grandfather's name was Plimsoll Alfred Drake and was born July 9, 1873 in Bristol, England. His father's name was John and his mother's name was Mary, and both were born in Bristol England as well.
Plimsoll came to Nova Scotia via a livestock ship in the late 1800's. He travelled west to Trail, BC where he worked for Cominco as a herdsman. He bought some land in Rossland, BC and started a Dairy Farm.

He went back to England for his wife Victoria. They returned to Rossland and had three children. John McDonald Drake was the first boy born in Rossland on Aug. 24, 1907. The second child, Beresford, died when he was 7 years old. The third, Mary, died when she was about 20. Plimsoll died on Sept 20, 1958 in Rossland.

If you have any information that might be related it would be greatly appreciated.
