Hake ~ First Generation

  John HAKE lived in Broadclyst, Devon, England.

John was mentioned in a Deed dated 1606 which was located by the Vicar of Broad Clyst in 1932. His Will was also available at that time. He was described as 'Gentleman' of Witnabridge, Broadclyst, Devon.

"The vast bulk of the original Devon wills and administrations were destroyed during the Second World War, when Exeter Probate Registry was bombed by the Germans during the Blitz of 1942. Therefore, Exeter Probate Registry now only holds original wills and administrations dating after this. " (Ref
www.devon.gov.uk/locating_wills_and_admin.htm)

Married to Grace (surname unknown). The order of issue is uncertain.

John probably died 1618, as specified by the Vicar of Broad Clyst when his Will was available. There are references in Ancestry to the document "Devon & Cornwall: - Wills and Administrations Proved in The Bishop of Exeter, 1559-1799; there is a John Hake listed 1614 at Broadcliste and there is a John Hake listed 1618 at Brodclist which were presumably two members of the same family. The name John Hake was fairly common at the time in Devon and Cornwall.
