Biographical data
Name: Drew, Francis Robert  
   Also known as: Rev. Francis Robert Drew; Frank Drew
Born: 24 Dec. 1830
Died: 3 June 1883
 
Notes:
I am guessing that the 'Drew' who played in London and Richmond in 1854 was Francis Robert Drew. The Birmingham Daily Post of 30 Jun. 1876 (p.7) and the Field of 8 Jul. 1876 have both 'Rev. F.A. Drew' and 'Rev. F.R. Drew'.
