I have a DRAKE family connected to my family, and I was wondering if you
have come across them.

Charlotte NEWMAN nee LOCK
born 22 Jul 1780 chr 8 Aug 1780 Dittisham daug of Thomas LOCK & Grace
married (1) 15 Oct 1799 Dittisham
Nicholas NEWMAN, mariner
chr 7 Dec 1777 Dittisham son of John NEWMAN & Elizabeth BRIM
bur 19 May 1814 Dittisham
chn: Thomas Lock (b.1806 Dittisham), Nicholas (b.1808 Dartmouth),
Ann Bowyer (b.1810 Dartmouth m George TRUMP), John Lock (b.1813 Dartmouth)
chn: Henry DRAKE chr 12 Nov 1815 Dartmouth Townstal
1851C: Topsham, White Street - Henry (74, pauper ship c+, born Topsham) &
Charlotte (72, pauper, born Dartmouth) lodgers with James & Eliza PYM ref
I am not positively certain that the Charlotte NEWMAN that married Henry
DRAKE in 1814 is my Charlotte NEWMAN, but I think so.
I would appreciate very much any further info on Charlotte and Henry.
