It is over 20 years since I researched the history of the Abbey for the City Museum, but as I recall it Sir Richard Grenville did NOT sell the house to Sir Francis Drake. It was very briefuly owned by a third party in the meantime. Since Grenville and Drake were on bad terms it has long been theorised that Drake was purchasing through an intermediary as Grenville would have been unlikely to sell directly to him.
