When Francis and his wife, Mary Buckingham, came to America, they brought along their 6 year old son James, plus Francis' brothers, Bamfield, Jr., and Joseph. When Mary Buckingham passed away, Francis married Sarah Douglas. He died in Edgecombe Co, VA (now Nash Co) and was buried near Drake's Bridge on Swift Creek, VA in 1763. It seems that an older brother John married Margaret Weldon in Devonshire, and at some later date the family went to America. We know that their daughter Margaret Weldon Drake married General John South around 1751.
