      Sir Edward Drewe was knighted by Queen Elizabeth about 1589 as the her barrister in the Inner Court. His home at Killerton is now a 6,000 acre National Trust site and is located in the same parish of Broad Clyst from whence came the early Churchills.

      Killerton is now mainly a late 18th century house in a timbered park. "Killerton Clump," the wooded hill behind the house, is a landmark for miles. Edward Drewe, sergeant-at-law, bought the estate late in Elizabeth's reign and built a mansion, only a mile from Sir John Acland's new house. Thomas Drewe, son of Edward, sold Killerton to the Aclands after his father's death, however, and moved to Grange in Broadhembury (q.v.) where the Drewes had built another mansion. The Aclands still live at Killerton, but Sir Richard Acland has handed over the house and park to the National Trust. The chapel in the park was built in 1842 in the Norman style, replacing that at Columbjohn. Round the summit of the hill (called Dolbury, "Dola's burh ") are the remnants of an earthwork, a simple, defensive enclosure with ram- part and ditch, probably of Early Iron Age date.

      He owned a large estate at Sharpham in Devon that was his primary residence for many years.
