Lettice was born at Ingon Manor in Warwickshire, England. Her parents were Henry and Margaret Shakespear. She was baptised at St. Mary and St. Bartholomew Church in Hampton-in-Arden on June 4, 1583. Lettice was the first wife of John Drake. They were married on June 25, 1616 in Hampton-in-Arden. There are several baptism records for children born to John Drake and his wife Lettice between 1616 and 1622. Lettice died in Hampton-in-Arden in November, 1623, and was buried in the churchyard of St. Mary and St. Bartholomew on November 10. John must have remarried, because in 1625, there is a record of a child born to John Drake and Elizabeth, so Samuel can't be her son if she died a year before he was born.
