My mom's cousin passed on some information of the Draper family, beginning with Thomas Draper, the father of the American immigrant, James. James was born (1618) in Heptonstall, vicarage of Halifax, Yorkshire, England. His siblings were Thomas, John. William, James (this is the line we are from), Mary and Martha. All except James remained in England. The history we have found says he came to New England about the time he "came of age" and from 1640 to 1650 was a pioneer and proprietor of the town of Roxbury, Mass. If anyone needs further information, let me know and I will be happy to help.
