Family of Phillipe Jewell

According to information taken from the International Genealogy Index (I.G.I.), Phillipe Jewell was baptised on the 14th May 1620, in Marhamchurch, Cornwall, England. She was the third child of Digory Jewell and Johan Shearme

A further search of the I.G.I., has discovered only 1 possible marriage involving Philipe Jewell. It occured on the 29th of November 1685, in the Parish of Saint Mabyn, in which a Philipe Jewell married Francis Drake (not the Francis Drake!). Philipe was not a popular name during that time, and this was evident by the vert few entries in the I.G.I. pertaining to Philipe, and as such this is the only mention of a Philipe marrying around that time. Interstingly there were no other Philipe's baptised prior to this marriage.

I also managed to discover that Francis and Philipe had 2 children. There details are as follows;

Humphry Drake - baptised 28th July 1689
William Drake - baptised 6th January 1693
Despite this the Parish of Saint Mabyn is not near the Parish of Marhamchurch, so it is possible that this marriage did not involve "my" Philipe. Hopefully further research will prove that this marriage did invlove "my"Phillipe, and discover what became of her, and her descendants. In the meantime if anyone has anymore information about Philipe, or you feel you may be one of her descendants, please contact me at
