The Descendants of Thomas Drayton the Elder

Eddie Drayton sent me this. He is a resident of Sumter, SC, a direct descendant of William Henry Drayton, of whom you can find information elsewhere on this website, and therefore a cousin of mine. Thomas Drayton was born in Atherstone, Warwickshire and may very well be related to Michael Drayton, the Elizabethan poet, who was Shakespeare’s friend. There is a record of a Thomas Drayton Jr leaving Barbados for Charlestown in April 1679. This Drayton family tree goes up to the present generation.
