They will represent Arvid Knutsson from the House of Drake to Tofta and Intorp in Väckelsångs parish and Däraps parish in Kronoberg county.

Arvid was probably born in the 1440s and died in the early summer 1497.He was a Squire, Member of the Swedish Privy Council, Judge in Kinds district and was Sten Sture's bailiff at Kalmar Castle 1472-81. Married in 1477 with Anna Göstafsdotter (Stenbock).
