  • Notes 
    • Only child of John and Mary Francis of London, whose family is said to have left Wales for France at the time of the first peace with Napoleon (27 March 1802) and has never been heard of since, except through reports that some of the members had left Paris and settled in the south of France. An aunt of Mary Francis was married to a French doctor (name unknown).

      Her portrait, with those of her husband, William Peek, and daughter, Mary Drew nee Peek, hangs in the dining room of Castle Drogo, Devon. A copy is in the possession of Veronica D Hughes.
