"I have been looking for some of my antecedents for some time now ... Newbury [the birthplace of Sarah Nias who married into the Drew family] is quite close to the birthplace of my great grandfather, Henry Drew in Chilton Foliat, Wilts. (about 12 miles away) in 1827, but I cannot see any relationship, and he moved to London in about 1854.
There are, though, numerous families of Drew in that general area - through North Wiltshire to Berkshire and Oxfordshire ..."
