• Web Reference: History of the Draycott Family . 806,1132
The author of this website cites W. Fowler Carter's "History of the Draycott Family" from the 1925 edition of Collections for a History of Staffordshire, edited by the William Salt Archaeological Society as his source. According to the website, the earliest pedigree of the Draycote family is:

William Malbanc, 1086
William Malbanc
Hugh Draycote

I have placed Philip Malbanc as the brother of the first William, as identified in A Survey of Stafordshire and History of Cheadle, Stafford, since it seems that the second William had only daughters and I can't find a son named Philip for this William. Philip is a reoccuring name in the successors in the Draycote family, whereas William isn't.
