Draper of Haselbury Plucknett Family Tree

Draper of Haselbury Plucknett Family Tree

The Draper Family

The Draper family of Haselbury Plucknett, Somerset is an old Somerset family that can be traced back as far as c. 1450, with the use of Wills, a few parish records and also with English civil war records. There are still a lot of avenues of research I would like to explore with this family, including land records, protestation returns and so on and I hope to achieve this research at some stage in the near future.
The family was very connected to the Mintern family of Hooke and Batcombe, Dorset; both parishes are close to each other. The family was connected by two marriages in my researched lines and I have also identified a third marriage, which I currently cannot place in my tree.
One of these marriages is recorded in the Visitations of Dorsetshire of 1623; Elinor 2nd daughter of John Mynterne of Batcombe in com. Dorset. And Frances, daughter of John Maye of Charterhouse in com. Somerset was married to Richard Draper of Haslebourth in com. Dorset. (Boundary lines for both Somerset and Dorset have often moved).
The family, were wealthy land owners who owned watermills, manors and land in more than one parish and they also took arms against the parliamentarians during the English Civil War. During this period, a few of the Draper men used an alias; Garliford/Galliford/Galliver and the name which is probably corrupt or used to protect themselves was first recorded in 1644, two years after the Civil War began and fell out of use in 1671 or shortly after. This is ten years after the restoration.
I haven’t been able to identify a coat of arms for this family, there are actually about 15 or so different arms attributed to the surname and a family line only has a right to bear arms if they descend from the person who first carried it.

Hannah DRAPER is the daughter of John ‘alias Garliford’ DRAPER Gent and Joane
COOKSLEY[1, 2, 3]. She was born about September 1685 in Haselbury Plucknett, Somerset, England [1].
Her baptism took place on the 9th September 1685 in St Michael, Haselbury Plucknett, Dorset, England [1].
She was one of six children; the eldest sibling died aged 1 year.
The family held residence at North Down Farm, which is just north of Haselbury, Hannah’s father John is recorded as being a Gentleman and would have employed a lot of men to work his land.

The use of the wording ‘Mr’ and ‘Mrs’ is not an indication of a previous marriage, but an indication of status, so basically Master and Mistress. Both Samuel and Hannah came from a background of means and were wealthy in their own right.

Samuel and Hannah had one son; Samuel Mintern who was born about 1713 probably in Hooke, Dorset.

Hannah’s death and burial is lost due to lack of surviving Parish records, but she was still alive in 1746 and was administratrix for her husband’s Administration and Inventory, these can be viewed here and here.
