Fascinating story. My great-great-great uncle, "Peter Drake", did something similar. He was from Northumberland, UK, but emigrated to Australia and became a teacher in an outback town called Hexham.

It is a great and sad story , because the woman who was left with the 2 girls and maybe a boy waited for him to come back , but they thought he was dead .... the family still use the surname Good and the woman lived the rest of her life beeing called "prostitute" because he didnt marry her.

Can't help you but suggest you consider searching Royal Mail Lines, Don't know what year they started but the East coast of South America was a regular run for Royal Mail ships. Spent some time on the South American route myself but that was in the early '50's. Sometimes you form friendships in another land but unfortunately you may experience transfers from ship to ship and never return to a certain place you would like to go.

My uncle lives in Hexham and his name is "Peter Drake". I wonder if they're related. Jonty D, Morpeth, Northumberland

Hi Luciana,
Another possibility is the Liverpool company named Booth Line, who ran steamers to Brazil, regularly going going up the River Amazon. Do you have any ship names to hand.
Regards, Geoff

Hi Jonty
A quick search reveals that there is more than one Peter Drake in Hexham Northumberland - a great coincidence that there was a Peter Drake who ended up in Hexham Australia. It seems that one of the Peter Drake that live in the Hexham (Northumberland) are is a playwright and teacher so it might be worth getting in touch

"Peter Drake" is well-known playwright from Hexham. He's best known for hi play entitled “The Prisoner’s Friend”, which I saw a few years ago in Hexham Northumberland. It's about a WW1 man who was shot for cowardice (although he was certainly no coward). A couple of reviews here: Will's legacy and One tragic man's war There is a recording of the one-man play here: www.babyloveproductions.co.uk/the-prisoners-friend-by-peter-drake and I found a the first couple of pages of the script here: The Prisoner's Friend by Peter Drake

I'm pretty sure that's the same "Peter Drake". There can't be too many of them in Hexham Northumberland! I know he's from a sea-faring family ...
