    It says 'of Clippesby', but obviously just means that he was living there when he married.

    Incidentally, which 'free sites' did you find that transcription on, because I can't find it.

    There are a lot of baptisms on Ancestry for John Drake and Phillis. The first I have found (so far) is Phyllis in 1861 in the parish of Thyrne with Oby. Looks like all the other children were baptised in Clippesby and some married there too.

    William was baptised in Acle in 1774
    Mary baptised Clippersby 01/09/1965
    Phyllis, Clippersby 1761
    Robert baptised Clippersby 26/05/1771 Buried Clippersby 29/09/1771
    Sarah baptised Clippersby 22/07/1770 Buried Clippersby 04/02/1770

    I know none of the above info will help you find the father of John but I have found another child or you!

    Having looked at that site at https://www.tinstaafl.co.uk/eandwhmi/
    I would assume that where a parish of abode isn't listed then it's the same as the parish in which the couple are marrying.
