Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 22

Excerpt from Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 22: November 1, 1887 Rancis drake, one of the founders of English naval power, the eldest of twelve brothers, was the son of a most worthy sailor named Edmund Drake. Francis was born in Tavistock, in Devonshire, in the year 1545. Francis Russell, afterward Earl of Bedford, stood as his godfather, and Sir John Hawking, the celebrated naviga tor, defrayed the expenses of his education during the short period he remained at school. It was in this manner that the attention of Sir John Hawkins was drawn to the boy: While walking one day by the banks of the river Tamar, a few miles below the town of Tavistock, Sir John, being overtaken by a shower of rain, took refuge under the roof of an humble ferry house, of which the only occupant at the time was a little boy.
