Children were John, Jr. (1670-1682), Mary (1672-1715), Jane (b. 1675), William (b. 1678), and Elizabeth (b. 1680).  Mary is my 11th great grandmother.

It's possible.  I don't have 1682 as a death date for John, Sr. and no dates at all for Jane Stanesby.  For John Jr. I have:

John Drake Jr.
16701682
BIRTH 17 AUG 1670 Ovingdean, Sussex, England
DEATH 25 JUN 1682 Ovingdean, Sussex, England

Well the one I quoted is definitely the vicar and isn't his will that year?  Maybe an error has crept in somewhere?

I apologize.  You are correct. I rechecked the will and it was from 1682.  This is him.

Jane Stanesby's father is identified as "Thomas Stansbey, of Micheldever, co. South[hamp]ton, Gent." in John Drake and Jane's marriage license (1668):

That's a good find.
Though the link doesn't lead to any info that we can see.
There is a snippet view on google from London Marriage Licences, 1521-1869, and that book is on archive.org, it's on page 418

Thank you both for this information.  I suspect that I'll never find any information about Jane's mother; however, I do have more information about John and Jane's marriage now.

John and Jane married at Oving in 1668. 

That's certainly true. But according to FreeReg they also married at Hartley Wintney on 13 Sep 1668 (Jane transcribed as Stonesby)
