Dear Sandy and Don:
I am a historian of science researching a book on Elizabethan London and I wanted you to know that Elizabeth Garton Kember Draper was not born in 1625. She married Clement Draper in 1579 in London, and survived his decease in the early 17th century. They had three children that survived into adulthood: Elizabeth (m. Abraham Persey), Sara (m. Thurston Symons), and Vincent (m. ?, daughter Dorcas m. John Applegarth).
You might like to know that Clement Draper was one of the most prolific recorders of English chemical and alchemical texts and experiments of the period. He was imprisoned for some time in the 1580s and 1590s after impinging on a nobleman's copper patent. His letter to the Queen is preserved in the State Papers.
Please let me know if I can fill you in on any details.
