Administration of Elizabeth Blake, wife of William Blake of Duntisbourne Abbots, Gloucestershire - Diocese of Bristol Wills on Ancestry, administered 15 Nov 1851

Another administration and again in the same general area as the two earlier ones. Elizabeth Blake wife of William Blake of Duntisbourne Abbots. There is a William Blake at Duntisborne Abbots, farmer, born circa 1784 on the 1851 census. Living with him is Elisa Blake born circa 1804. No children listed.

A second page was available on Ancestry which can be found below the administration granted.  This corrects my earlier blog which had Elizabeth as the mother of William Blake.

Administration of Elizabeth Blake, widow, Up Hatherley, Gloucestershire - Diocese of Bristol Wills on Ancestry, administered 15 Mar 1724

Another interesting administration and this time for Elizabeth Blake mother of Giles Blake of the City of Gloucester. Elizabeth lived at Up Hatherley which is just four miles from the City of Gloucester. There is a Gyles Blake son of Thomas Blake baptized at Prestbury which is just 5 miles from Up Hatherley 30 Nov 1687. Also baptized to Thomas at Prestbury 6 Jun 1686 a Thomas and 18 Dec 1689 John (deceased 19 Dec 1689). As well Thomas 8 Feb 1684, Martha 29 Apr 1683 and Frances 29 Jun 1684. Googling Thomas Blake at Prestbury did not reveal anything more about this family. There is a will for a Thomas Blake 1712 to come (more information found for this testator).

Page 2 is clearly written in latin and I believe it is saying that Giles has presented himself to the Court and requested to administer his mother Elizabeth Blake’s estate in that she has died intestate.

Page 3 is another clearly written latin document and I do hope that one day my skills will extend to reading latin. It would appear to be a supporting document for a William Terrell.

Since the administration of the estate is awarded to Giles on the 15th it would appear that the document of the 8th was not taken into account.This is a redo of blog:

Will of Edward Blake, Broadweaver, Cowley, Gloucestershire - Diocese of Bristol Wills on Ancestry, probated 10 Sep 1648

Edward Blake Broadweaver of Cowley Gloucestershire is the testator. He names his brother Richard also of Cowley and his wife Margaret. He also names his sons in birth order Edward, Maurise, George,  William and daughter Margaret.

He owns two looms and his shop goods and wills these to his two eldest sons and his other heifers to George his third son and money to his youngest son William. Margaret receives money and some household goods.

I did not find this will until my second search, I had only the probate at hand. This will does lead into the administration of the estate of his son Edward which is a comfortable match to help with this family at Cowley. There isn’t a will for his brother Richard that I have located.

Maurice Blake is an unusual name and I did a search in FamilySearch and found five christenings in Coaley with Maurice as the father and Martha as the mother namely John 22 Jun 1661, Cornelius 25 Apr 1663/died 21 Jul 1664, Mary 5 May 1664, Martha Feb 1665 and Bathsheba 16 Oct 1670. "England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/JMCB-MM4 : accessed 20 Jul 2014), Morris Blake in entry for John Blake, 22 Jun 1661; citing COALEY,GLOUCESTER,ENGLAND, reference ; FHL microfilm 425379.

In an earlier time period there was an Elizabeth Blake baptized 27 Dec 1609 at Coaley daughter of Mawrice Blake.
