This Richard married a Miss Ursula Stafford whose mother Lady Dorothy Stafford had been the Queens lady of the Bedchamber for many years, and bought an estate in Esher. This Richard received a ransom of 2.500 pounds for a distinguished Spanish prisoner who was captured after the defeat of the Armada and housed with Richard Drake for four-and- a-half years until his exchange with an English prisoner in the hands of the Spaniards. The family of Drake of Shardeloes in Buckinghamshire are descendants of this Richard.
