Between 1510 and 1513 he was engaged with various collegues in the attempt to pacify the Scottish border by peaceful methods. He was a witness to the marriage of Princess Mary on 9th October 1514 and was knighted in 1516. He was present at the Field of the Cloth of Gold in 1520, and has a long list of other important appointments to his credit, too numerous to mention here. The site of his family’s London home is still called Drury Lane. Sir Robert Drury and Anne Calthorpe had two sons:
Between June 1510, and February 1513, inclusive, he was engaged with various colleagues in the attempt "to pacify the Scottish border by peaceful methods and to obtain redress for wrongs committed."
Two splendid books, once owned by Sir Robert Drury, have survived. One, a fine Latin MS of the Vulgate, written by an English scribe early in the 13th Century, is now in the Library of Christ's College Cambridge. Some blank leaves at the end have been used to record the marriages and progeny of the children of Sir Robert Drury. The first group of entries was made at the end of 1527; subsequent entries carry on the records of the growth of the family until 1566. The other book is the finest and most famous of all Chaucer MS, the Ellesmere Manuscript of The Canterbury Tales now in the Huntingdon Library. At the top of a preliminary fly-leaf is written "Robertus Drury, miles", and below a list of his children: "William Drury, miles, Robertus Drury, miles, Domina [Anne] Jarmin, Domina [Bridget] Jarningham, and Domina [Ursula] Allington."
Of his daughters by Anne Calthorpe, Ursula married Sir Giles Alington, Knight, of Horseheath, Cambridgeshire. Sir Robert Drury's Will is very extensive and detailed, and mentions "Robert Alyngton my daughter Ursula's son" as being under age at the time of writing. (Drury's sons William and Robert are also mentioned). Another daughter, Anne, married  George Waldegrave (ca. 1483 – 08 July 1528, of Smallbridge, Suffolk, from whom descend the Earls Waldegrave, as well as a branch of the Higham of Higham Green and Denham family. She married : Sir Thomas Jermyn, Knight, (ca. 1500 – 1552) of Rushbrooke, Suffolk, from whom descend that family, (includes the Jacobite peer) as well as the Crane family of Chilton, later Baronets.
Sir Robert Drury's Magnificent Tomb can be found in the main Processional Aisle in St.Mary's Church, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk.
