In the sixteenth century, a family of Blakes also appeared in the records. Humphrey Blake, the head of the house, was thought to be the son of John Blake of Calne in Wiltshire.

During his lifetime, Humphrey became the Lord of the Manor of Plainfield, Over Stowey, patron of the Church at Over Stowey and Aisholt, and was Mayor of Bridgwater.                                                           

A few years before he died, Humphrey bought the adjoining manor of Tuxwell in 1555 from George Sydenham. Humphrey died on the 28th December 1558 and was buried at Over Stowey. His will was dated 19th November 1558 and proved at Taunton 11th May 1558.

Over-Stowey or Upper-Stowey is pleasantly situated on a gentle ascent on the eastern side of the Quantock hills. There are four hamlets in this parish and John Collinson`s description of the hamlets in 1791, could not have changed very much, from when Humphrey Blake lived there. Even to-day there is only a handful of houses surrounding the Church at Over Stowey.

Anne Blake the daughter of John Blake the elder was also a granddaughter of Humphrey Blake. She was probably named Anne after Humphrey’s wife. Anne married Thomas Saunders in 1575 at Over Stowey and nine children have been found from this marriage.  Their daughter Elizabeth Saunders married Henry Wolcot and Elizabeth and Henry with four of their children sailed to the New World in 1630, also on board was Elizabeth cousin Thomas Richards. William Blake is also reported to have sailed in 1635, probably on the ‘Hopewell’ as William Black. Black being a common form of spelling the name Blake, as is Blaque, Bleek, Blak, Blayk and Blick. William was the grandson of John Blake the elder and he settled in Dorchester, Mass.

I have looked at the two accepted versions on the Blake families of Somerset and found that many of the family lines do not tally with the records entered in the parish registers. However I have used some of these accepted versions as a base, as there are too many lines for me to tackle individually. I also have other names and information that I have not placed onto the tree because of these anomalies.

                        2.         Adscombe, four houses.

                        3.         Ely Green, in which are eight houses.

                        4.         Plainsfield, containing eight houses, and one Mill.

                                                                     1791 John Collinson.

 

Plainsfield manor is situated a mile from Over Stowey Church and there in the great hall, the Blake arms are shown over the fireplace. The arms shown depict the Wiltshire Blake`s coat of arms, and shows the connection between the Somerset Blake`s and the Wiltshire Blake`s. An argent (silver), a chevron (looks like a lance-corporal`s stripe upside down) between three garbs (sheaf of grain) sable (together) and crest (part of the grant of arms) on a chapeau gules a velvet cap with vertical shading), turned up, ermine, a martlet (small bird) argent. The arms were originally depicted in a memorial window in the Church of St. Mary Calne but destroyed about 1650. It is worth mentioning that through marriage an heiress may be entitled to bear her family’s arms and in this case her arms would be quartered with that of her husband, thus changing the design of the coat of arms.

 

First Generation

Humphrey Blake married Agnes and they had four sons and three daughters. Agnes died on the 24 June 1585 at Over Stowey. It is this family that has grown and prospered and spread through-out many of the various parishes in the County and is the family line, I am using as the foundation of my research.

The four sons of Humphrey are mentioned in his will, John the elder, Robert, Thomas and John the younger and also three of his daughters, Agnes, Eleanor and Alice.

Admiral Robert Blake was a Colonel in the Army before Cromwell made him General at Sea in 1649, at the age of 50 years. During his Navy life he developed maneuvers that are still used by the navy today. He became a national hero because of his victories over the Dutch, French, Spaniards and Turks. Cromwell gave him a state funeral however when Charles the II came to the throne, Blake’s remains along with Cromwell’s were disinterred from Westminster Abbey.  There have been many books written on the life of Admiral Blake but I quote here from John Oldmixon, 1673-1742, born at Oldmixon, near Weston-super-Mare, writing on the History and Life of Robert Blake, Esq.

“ There is not in History a greater Example of this kind, than that of General Blake, whose Courage, Conduct,

       Fidelity, Disinterest and Public Spirit: as they had no Parallel in History before his Time, so we may despair

        that so many heroick Qualities will ever meet again in the same Character, in our own or any other Times.”

Robert was Captain General of the fleet of England and M.P. for Bridgwater in 1640 and 1654. He was Educated at the Grammar School Bridgwater and then at Wadham College and obtained the degree of Batchelor of Arts. At the civil war he was for Parliament. Robert was left the lands at Puritan and Crandon by his father.
