The Drakes of Aishe

The Drakes of Aishe

Drakes of Aishe (Musbury, South East Devon) and their link to that most famous and notorious maritime voyager, Sir Francis Drake.  There was a famous incident at court, in London, where Sir Francis received a boxed ear from an annoyed Barnard Drake (member of the Drakes of Aishe) – we elaborate! Also, of particular interest is the Drake Memorial at Musbury Church which contains effigies of three generations on a single monument.  It’s a truly stunning piece of visual history that’s worthy of a visit.
