Sir Frances Drake was given a family crest with the Latin motto, ‘Sic Parvis Magna’ which translates as “Great things from Small Beginnings”. This was given to him by England’s, Queen Elizabeth and was chosen to represent his underprivileged start in life. Drake was one of twelve sons of a Protestant farmer and was poor most of his life.

He was 23 years old when he made his first voyage to the Caribbean with his uncle. To accompany his motto, Drake personally designed an image for the family crest which showcased God's hand pulling his ship around the world.
