A RECORD 



BLAKES OF SOMERSETSHIRE .

INTRODUCTION. 



1235105 




HE occasion of the printing of this volume was 
as follows. Knowing that Mr. Somerby, the 
late accomplished genealogist, had traced the 
ancestry of William Blake, the emigrant, and had em- 
bodied the results in a handsome manuscript, I obtained 
leave to examine it. The fact that so many of the de- 
scendants of William Blake were greatly interested in this 
discovery of his and their ancestry, was considered by Mr. 
Stanton Blake and his brothers, and they have consented 
to have this book printed for the use of the family. 



As there has already been printed a genealogy of that 
portion of the family which remained in and about Dor- 
chester, the American portion of this record is confined to 
one line, descended from Edward Blake, third son of the 
emigrant. Even this branch has not been fully traced, as 
Joseph Blake, of Boston, his grandson, has been taken as 
the starting-point for the full register. 



4 INTRODUCTION. 

The work of the editor, in the main, has been merely 
to arrange Mr. Somerby's pedigrees in paragraph form. 
Among the numerous note-books given to the Massachu- 
setts Historical Society by the heirs of Mr. Somerby, are 
full extracts from parish registers, and, so far as can be 
concluded therefrom, Mr. Somerby's results are entitled to 
the fullest confidence. 

On p. 31, the ijumber prefixed to Edward Blake should 
be 4, not 5, but this will probably cause no difficulty to 
the reader. 

The admirable Index was the work of Mr. W. T. R. 
Marvin.

WILLIAM BLAKE. 




HE family of Blake, originally seated in 
Wiltshire, derives its surname from Blake- 
land, a parish in that county, where they 
were large landed proprietors. 

The practice of adopting hei"editary surnames from 
manors and localities, is thought to have originated 
in Normandy about the close of the tenth century. 
Possessors of land took them from their own estates 
about that period, a practice in which the Normans 
were soon imitated by the English, particularly after 
the Conquest. 

Man}' families of Saxon oi-igin co])ied the example 
of the Normans and prefixed de to their names, but 
the particle was generally dropped about the latter 
part of the fourteenth century. 



6 ■ WILLIAM BLAKE 

The first mention of Blake in ancient records as a 
surname, occurs in the Wiltshire Roll of Subsidies, 
gi-anted to Edward the First, in the fifteenth year of 
his reign, A. D. 1286, when Robert de Blakeland was 
assessed to that King's requirements. His descendant, 



I. Robert^ Blake, who appears 
to have dropped the particle de and the particle land 
from his surname, had his residence in the township 
of Cable, adjoining the family estates at Blakeland, 
where he was assessed to the subsidies of Edward the 
Third, in 1347, to an amount far exceeding that of 
any other inhabitant of the town. 

This Robert ^ Blake by his wife Anne, daughter 
of William Cole, had a son and heir. 



II. Henry " Blake, whose wife 
was a daughter and co-heir of Edward Durant. Their 
son. 



III. William'^ Blake, succeeded 
to the estates, and by his wife, Elizabeth, daughter of 
Thomas Power, had a son and heir, 



OF DORCHESTER, MASS. 7 

ly. Henry ^ Blake, of Calne, 
who married Margaret, daughter and heir of 
Bellett, of Qiiemberford, near Cahie, and was suc- 
ceeded by his son, 



Y. Robert ^ Blake, of Calne, 
and of Quemberford, in right of his mother. He 
married Avice, daughter and heii* of John Wallop, 
Esquire, of Nether Wallop, in the county of South- 
ampton, By this marriage he acquired estates in that 
county, one of which, in Andover, was subsequently 
transferred to their youngei' son William.*' An Inqui- 
sition was held after the death of his wife, which 
occurred on the 29th of October, 1474, to determine 
the tenure of her estates in Hampshire and her suc- 
cessor, when it appeared that John*' Blake was her 
eldest son, aged at the time of her death forty years 
and more. 

They were buried in Calne Church, where, in a 
window of stained glass, he was represented habited 
in armqr, with a surcoat charged with his armorial 
bearings, and she in a long robe, with a scarf embroi- 
dered with the arms of her family. He bore argent 
a chevron between three garbs, sable; his wife's arms 
were gules on a chevron argent two crescents.

and was buried in the Church of Nether Wallop, having 
made his will on the 24th of February, 1503-4, which 
was proved on the 24th of the following April. He be- 
queaths his soul to God, to our Blessed Lady His mother, 
and to all the company of heaven, and desires to be 
buried in the church of St. Andrew, in Nether Wallop, 
near his late wife Margary. He appoints his wife Mar- 
garet, and his son-in-law John Dauntsey, executors of the 
will, and his brother Robert Blake, overseer. He had 
two daughters, Joan, born in 1484, married to Thomas 
Wroughton ; and Alice, wife of John Dauntsey. An 
Inquisition held after the death of John Blake, particu- 
larizes his manors of Calne and Pennells in Wiltshire. 

4. Robert ^ Blake ; on the death of his brother John 
without male issue, he succeeded to the manor of Calne 
and other estates in Wiltshire, which comprised land and 
tenements in fifteen parishes in that county. He died

YII. AViLLiAM' Blake,* eldest 
son of William Blake, of White Parish, resided at 
Old Hall in Eastontown, in the parish of Andover. 
He also had lands and tenements in Knights Enham, 
which were sometime in the occupation of his brother 
Robert in 1504. B}^ his wife Mary, daughter of Himi- 
phrey Coles, of Somersetshire, he had 

1. Nicholas,^ of Old Hall, who made his will on 
the 31st of May, 1547, which was proved on the 20th of 
the following June. He names his wife Margaret, and 
sons, William and Edmund, and daughters. Elizabeth and 
Alice. 

Vni. 2. Humphrey.^ 



Yin. Humphrey^ Beake, the sec- 
ond son of William Blake, of Andover, removed in 
the early part of the sixteenth century into Somerset- 
shire, and seated himself in Over Stowey, and became 
lord of the manor of Plainfiekl in that parish, to which 
estate he added the adjoining manor of Tuxwell, 
which he purchased in 1555, of George Sydenham. 



* His Arms are recorded in the Visitation of Hampshire in 1530, as argent, 
a chevron between three srarbs, sable. 



OF DORCHESTEB, MASS. 11 

Ov^er Stowey, which mostly belonged to the Blakes 
two centuries ago, is a parish of considerable extent, 
pleasantly situated on the eastern side of the Quantock 
hills. It contains foui' hamlets, viz: Marsh Mills, 
Addiscombe, Ely Green, and Plainfield, with a popu- 
lation of about six hundred, and nearly every family 
is employed in agriculture. The church is a plain 
structure, consisting of a nave, chancel, and north 
aisle, with a tower at the west end, sixty feet in height, 
containing five bells. The parish registers, which 
begin in 1558, contain numerous entries of the family 
of Blake, and their collaterals, and some monumental 
tablets of the family 3'et remain. 

The manor house of Plainfield, long the residence 
of the Blakes, stands about a mile from the church, 
and affords a good specimen of a gentleman's residence 
in the early part of the sixteenth century, its massive 
walls, arched entrance porch, and general construction 
bearing evidence of its antiquity. 

In the great hall, over the fire-place, are the sculp- 
tured arms of the family, as boi-ne by their progenitors 
in Wiltshire and Hampshire. A venerable chestnut 
tree overspreads the building, and adds much to the 
picturesqueness of the spot. Many years ago the 
estate passed from the Blakes, and the mansion is now 
occupied by a tenant farmer of the Earl of Egmont. 



12 WILLIAM BLAKE 

Humphrey ^ Blake died in 1558, and was buried in 
the church of Over Stowey on the twenty-eighth of 
December. An inquisition was held after his death, 
to determine the tenure of his estates, and also to 
ascertain the name and age of his heir. His will is 
dated on the nineteenth of November, 1558, and was 
proved on the eleventh of the following May. He 
describes himself of Over Stowey, Gentleman, and 
desh'es to be buried in the church with such orisons 
and prayers as shall be thought most meet by his 
executors, and directs that there shall be given to 
every priest at his funeral, twelve pence. He also 
provides for prayers to be said for him by the vicar of 
Over Stowey, and the parson of Aisholt, of which 
church he was patron, and makes bequests for repairs, 
ornaments and reparations of the buildings. 

By his wife Agnes, who was buried on the twenty- 
fourth of June, 1585, he had four sons and three 
daughters : — 

IX. 1. John,^ called John the elder, to distinguish him 
from a younger brother, who was also named John. 

X. 2. Robert. 9 

3. Thomas. 9 His father gave him lands and houses 
of the manor of Tuxwell. His wife, whom he married 



OF DORCHESTEB, MASS. 13 

at Bridgewater, April 29, 1569, was Agnes Castleman. 
As nothing more is known of him, he probably died 
without issne. 

4. John," the younger, was of Over Stowey, where 
he married August 18, 1558, Christian Jugg, by whom 
he had two sons and two daughters, who continued to

mother, a co-executor of his father's will, and they were 
made residuary legatees. 

5. Agnes," who was married t-o Manning. 

6. Eleanor," whose husband was Langhani. 

7. Alice," who was wife of George Slocumbe. 



IX. JoHX '^ Blake, eldest son of 
Humphrey Blake, w^as born in 1521. He succeeded 
to the manor of Piainfield and other estates in the 
neighborhood, and to the jjatronage of Aisholt church, 
which continued in the family for more than two cen- 
turies. He was buried iu the chancel of the church 
of Over Stowey, on the tenth of December, 157(5, 
having made his will on the twenty-sixth of the 
preceding month. He bequeaths to each of his sons 
certain lands and tenements, and to his son Richard

OF DORCHESTER, MASS. 15 

X. Robert ^ Blake, second son 
of Humphrey ** Blake, of Over Stowey, was a merchant 
of Briclgewater, and resided in St. Mary's Street, since 
called Blake Street. His f\ither gave him the manoi- 
of Tuxwell, in Over Stowey, and other landed prop- 
erty. He died on the twelfth of Octobei-, 1592, and 
his nimcnpative will was made on the day preceding. 
He bequeathed to his son William the manor of 
Tuxwell-with-Radlett, and to his son Humphrey, the 
manor of Puriton-with-Crandon, and made him exec- 
utor to the will. At an Inquisition held after his 
death, respecting the tenure of his lands, it was proved 
that he died possessed of the manors of Tuxwell, 
Puriton, and Crandon, and lands in Calcot, Bawdryn, 
Woolavington, Ashwell, Spaxton, Over Stowey, and 
Aether Stowey, and that William Blake was his eldest 
son and heir, aged at the date of the Inquisition forty 
years and more. His wife was Margaret, daughter of 
Symonds, and she was buried at B ridge w^ater 
on the 10th of April, 1600. In her will, dated April 
20, 1599, she bequeaths to the Mayor and Aldei-men 
of Bridgewater, ten pounds in trust, the interest of 
which is to be invested in certain articles of clothino- 
for six poor women. She also makes bequests to the 
Almshouses of Bridgewater and Stogursey, and to the 
poor of Spaxton. To her son William she gives a 



IG WILLIAM BLAKE 

coverlet of tapestry, and a silver spoon. To Robeil, 
son of her son Humphrey, she leaves a spur royal of 
gold, and to her daughter Anastatia Buckinge, she 
bequeaths a large quantity of personal effects. Among 
othei's named in the will as beneficiaries, are her sister 
Elizabeth Symonds, sister Dorothy Sindercomb, cousin 
Richard Blake of Over Stowey, and her god-daughter 
Sarah Popham. Her executors were Nicholas Streets, 
William Blake, and Richard Blake. 



The children of Robert'' and Margaret Blake were 



1. William,^ '^ born in 1552, succeeded to the estates 
of his father, but dying without issue, they passed to his 
brother Humphre3^ 

2. Anastatia, ^ "^ married at Bridge water, May 16, 
1563, to Robert Buckinge. 

3. Humphrey ^ ^ Blake, baptized at Bridgewater, May 
16, 1563, succeeded to the manors of Tuxwell and Puri- 
ton and other estates, on the death of his brother without 
issue. At the visitation of Somersetshire in 1628, by the 
Heralds from the College of Arms, his pedigree and 
armorial bearings were certified and recorded among 
their archives. His residence was the mansion house of 
his father, in St. Mary's Street, where he died on the 



OF DORCHESTER, MASS. 17 

nineteenth of November, 1624.. By his will, not dated, 
but proved February 24, 1625, he makes bequests to the 
Cathedral church at Wells, and to the churches of Bridge- 
water and Paulett. To his son Robert ^ ^ he bequeaths 
the manor and lordship of Puriton and Crandon, and 
articles of silver plate. To his son William i ^ he assigns 
a lease of lands at Puriton towards defraying the expense 
of his education at Oxford. He also makes bequests to 
his sons Nicholas, 11 Samuel, ^^ Benjamin, ii and Alexan- 
der, n and to his daughter Bridget, ^^ and appoints his 
wife Sarah, and his son Humphreyii co-executors of his 
will. 

His wife was Sarah, daughter, and one of the heirs 
of John Williams, of Paulet, near Bridgewater, by whom 
he had fourteen children, viz : 

1. Robert,'^ ^ baptized at Bridgewater, Septem- 
ber 27, 1598. He was educated at the Grammar 
School in* Bridgewater, and went from thence to 
Oxford, and was entered at St. Alban's Hall, but 
removed to Wadham College, and in 1617 took 
the degree of Bachelor of Arts. In 1628 he 
wrote a copy of verses on the death of Camden, 
and soon after left the University. He was 
tinctured pretty early with republican principles, 
and disliking that severity with which Laud, then 
Bishop of Bath and Wells, pressed uniformity in 
his diocese, he began to fall into puritanical 



18 WILLIAM BLAKE 

opinions. In 1640, he was elected member of 
Parliament for Bridgewater. When the civil war 
broke out in 1642, he declared for the Parlia- 
ment, and in 1649 he was appointed to command 
the fleet. In 1651, he received, the appointment 
of one of the Admirals and General of the Fleet, 
and in 1654 he was made sole Admiral. He died 
as his fleet was entering Plymouth, on the seven- 
teenth of August, 1657, and his body was con- 
veyed to Westminster Abbey, and interred with 
great pomp in Henry the Seventh's Chapel ; but 
removed from thence in 1661, by order of Charles 
the Second, and re-interred in the adjoining 
churchyard of St. Margaret. 

Disinterested, generous, liberal, ambitious only 
of true glory, dreadful only to his avowed ene- 
mies, he forms one of the most perfect char- 
acters of the age. The Protector, Cromwell, 
ordered him a pompous funeral at the j)ublic 
charge, but the tears of his countrymen were the 
most honorable panegyric on his memory. His 
will, written with his own hand, ou board his 
ship Naseby, March 10, 1655-6, was proved Au- 
gust 20, 1657. He bequeaths to the poor of each 
of the parishes of Bridgewater and Taunton one 
hundred pounds, and makes liberal bequests to 
all his brothers and sisters; his brother Humphrey 
receiving the manor of Puriton.

wood, and widow of William Sealey, by whom 
he had an only daughter, Sarah. 

3. mV/mw,!! baptized February 28, 1602-3. 
He was educated at Oxford, where he obtained 
the degree of Doctor of Law. He practiced as 
a physician at Bridgewater, where he died in 
1667, having made his will on the 24th of Octo- 
ber in that year, which was proved on the 30th 
of the following March. He bequeaths to the 
poor of Bridgewater one hundred pounds, and 
legacies to his brothers Humphrey, Nicholas, Ben- 
jamin, and Alexander, and to the children of his 
brother George, late of Plymouth, deceased. To 
his sister Bowdich of Chardstock, he gives ten

XTII. AVilliam" Blake, third 
and eldest surviving son of Robert ^° Blake, of Over 
Stowey, has his baptism thus recorded: — 

1594 Ano dom 5 day of June was baptized William 
blake sonne of Robert Blake. 

He resided some time at Aisholt, a parish adjoining 
Over Stowey, where the Blakes were lords of the 
manor, patrons of the church, and owners of most of 
the land. 

The church, dedicated to All Saints, is a neat struc- 
ture, consisting of a nave, chancel, and south aisle, 
and towei' at the west end containing three bells. In 
the church are several monuments to the Blake family, 
who continued to reside here as patrons and incum- 
bents until the beginning of the present century. The 
Egmonts ai-e now lords of the manor, and the Rev. 
John West is patron and incumbent of the church. 
The parish registers previous to 1645 have not been 
preserved. 



OF DORCHESTER, MASS. 27 

In the year 1630 Mi-. Blake sold bis house and land 
at Aisholt to his brother-in-law James Clarke, and on 
the 20th of March embarked at Plymouth, in Devon- 
shire, on board the "Mary and John,"* taking with 
him his family, and arrived at Nantasket on the thir- 
tieth of May. 

* We are not aware of the authority for the statement that William 
Blake came in tliis ship. Capt. Roger Clapp was a passenger then, but 
in his memoirs he does not luime his associates. James Blake's annals, 
written 1749-17.52, say, under date of 1663: "This Year Died Mr. William 
Blake, who had been Clerk of the Writs for the County of Suffolk, and 
Recorder of the Town near 8 Tears. He was also Clerk of the Train- 
ing-band. He Died tlie 25tli of the Stli mo. 1663, in the 69th Year of 
his Age." 

It will be noted that this statement would exactly agree with the 
record of the birth of William Blake, (No. XUI,) who was baptized June 
.5, 1594. This coincidence, with the statement of his sister (Mrs. Eleanor 
Clai'k) in 1647, that her brother was in New England, makes the identi- 
fication of the emigrant beyond question. The attempt in the Blake 
Genealogy (Boston, 18.57.) to identify him with the son of a Giles Blake 
of Litlle Baddow, Co. Essex, was simply an unwarranted assumption, 
without the slightest foundation. Such a reckless guess cannot stand for 
a moment before tlie careful and extended research made by Mr. Somerby, 
the results of which are given in the preceding pages. ~ W. II. W.

1. William^ Blake fixed his 
residence at Dorchester, in that part now called Mil- 
ton, where he filled the offices of Selectman, Town 
Clerk, Recorder, &c., &c., and is spoken of as a 
most nseful and influential citizen. He was also 
elected a member of the Ancient and Honorable 



* In 1857, Mr. Samuel Blake published a genealogy of part of the descend- 
ants of William Blake, which, though disfigured by the insertion of a totally 
incorrect English affiliation and pedigree, seems to be reasonably full within 
the limits prescribed. 

It gives the children of William,^ then of James, ^ his son, then of James,4 
jr., (son of James. 3) This last was born in 1688, and died in 1750. He 
wrote the "Annals of Dorchester," before cited. 

The printed record then takes Samuel,5 son of the Annalist, and traces 
his descendants in various lines. It will be seen that this is not a full record 
of even one line of the descendants of the emigrant.

than ever found expression in word." " A man down- 
right, upright, and forthright, not untouched by the

62 WILLIAM BLAKE 

The following tribute to his memory was adopted 
by the Massachusetts Commandery of the Loyal 
Legion : — 

" Lieutenant Blake entered the Naval Academy 
as a cadet,' Sept. 29th, 1858. Graduating from that 
school, he entered iuto active service, June, 1861. He 
was attached to the ' Colorado,' at Pensacola. While 
on this vessel he fell into the hold of the ship and 
received a severe contusion of the head, from which 
he never fully recovered. As soon as he was able, he 
again went into active service, and was attached to 
the ' Hartford,' flagship of Admiral Farragut, being 
present at the capture of New Orleans and both pas- 
sages of the batteries at Vicksburg. He was promoted 
to the grade of Ensign, February, 1863, and to that 
of Lieutenant, February 22d, 1864. He was attached 
to the iron-clad ' New Ironsides ' during the first attack 
and also at the final capture of Fort Fisher. He re- 
signed from the navy, April, 1866, and resided in 
Europe till his death. * * * Lieutenant Blake was 
one of the most amiable and unselfish of men, and of 
the highest standard of honor — a great favorite with 
his classmates, and beloved by all who knew him."
