As I said previously Bathsheba and William were my great great grandparents.  I can confirm that we have the same dates of birth for Bathsheba.  I am interested how you are related.  However until you make two more posts I  can't contact you using the message system.  I have a large amount of information about both the Matthews and Drakeley families.

I think the Drakeleys are still involved with funfairs.

Have you seen this?

The line back from Bathsheba is as follows:

Her parent were William 1754 and Hannah Dewell.
His parents were John Drakeley and his second wife Jane.
John was the son of Abraham and Anne (possibly Paine)

The fairground/coal merchant/canal boat branch of the family is descended from Abraham the brother of John.

My paternal grandparents lived in a double decker bus on ground owned by the Drakeley family on Belchers Lane. Birmingham before it was brought by Birmingham Corporation to build houses. recently I met the second wife of Jack Drakeley whose Dad was also called Jack who I think owned the land. Its a small world
