"FIT AND WELL AT 100.
Mr. W. A. Gordon Hake, the doyen of the Bar, celebrated his hundredth birthday at his home at Brighton on Wednesday, surrounded by his family - Miss Charlotte Matilda Hake, his daughter, Mr. Augustus Hake and the Rev. T.G. Hake, his sons, and the latter's wife and daughter Constance. He joined the family party at dinner, and ate the same food as they - lamb, vegetables, and plum pudding. Congratulations, by letter and telegram, poured in from all parts of the kingdom, and Mr. Hake read them all himself without the aid of glasses. Mr. Hake is a master of five languages - Greek, Latin, French, Italian, and Spanish - and reads Horace, Virgil and Montaigne. He attributes his long and healthy life to plenty of riding - he had for years a favourite horse named Daisy - and walking, and to abstemious living. He has never cared much for modern varieties of dress. The Rev. T. G. Hake tells a good story of his father's rough-and-ready toilet. Dr. Charles Hanson once called on him at his chambers and asked permission to put on his barrister's wig and gown. "Now," he asked, "lend me a looking-glass." He was handed a razor - the nearest approach to a mirror possessed by his friend." (ref British Newspapers, Northampton Mercury Fri 7 April 1911)

His occupation was Barrister, and at the time of his death was the oldest living Barrister.

"BARRISTER DIES AT 103. - Mr. William A. Gordon Hake, who was called to the Bar in 1835 - two years before Queen Victoria came to the Throne - died at Brighton on Monday in his 104th year. He was a first cousin of General Gordon. Mr. Hake, who was born at Exeter, passed peacefully away in the presence of his son, the Rev. T. G. Hake, and his daughter - both septuagenarians. Until two years ago Mr. Hake could read print without the aid of glasses." (ref British Newspaper Archive, Western Gazette, Fri 17 July 1914.

Charles Hake. Age 8. Born Devon, England.

Not found in 1851 census, but presumably left for Australia after 1851 if he was with his brother Sidney.

Occ Photographer. Member of Expedition to the Northern Territory, Australia. Joint taker of the first photographs ever taken in the NT. He went to Australia with his brother Sidney.

Charles had an eventful life in the opening up of South Australia and the Northern Territory.
In 1864 he was included in the list of members of an expedition to the Northern Territory as Charles Hake, labourer, 5s (ref South Australian Advertiser Tue 12 Apr 1864, in Trove).

In 1865 Charles took part in an extraordinary voyage known as The Forlorn Hope. The seven men, who included two surveyors, two sailors, and two labourers (incl Charles) left Adam Bay, near Darwin in an open boat, and arrived 2 months later at Geraldton, Western Australia, a voyage of 2500 miles.
"THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY VOYAGE ON RECORD. In our last we announced the safe arrival of Mr. Stow and party at West Australia, we have since received the following particulars of their unparalleled feat:-
Mr. Jefferson Stow, accompanied by Messrs. M'Minn, and Hamilton, surveyors, late in the employ of the South Australian Government at Adam Bay; two sailors, James Davis and John White; and two labourers, Charles Hake and Francis Edwards, left Adam Bay [near Darwin] on the 7th May, in an open boat 23 feet long, six feet beam, and two feet deep. They arrived at Anson Bay on the 14th, at Cape Dombey on the 15th, off Cape Bougainville on the night of the 16th; they landed on Troughton Island on the 21st, and on the 29th arrived in Camden Harbour. There, fortunately, they found the party under Sholl's orders were in good health. Mr. Stow and his companions, having been hospitably entertained for five days, left on the 3rd of June, and on the 7th were off Lacepede Islands, and on the 15th off Solitary Island; passed Turtle Island on the 17th, and on the 19th anchored in Nickol Bay. Here they stayed until the 23rd, landing at two places searching for water, when, not meeting with any of the white settlers, they started on their perilous voyage, passing outside of Lampier's Archipelago and landed on an island off the mouth of the Fortescue River on the 26th. They passed the North-west Cape with fine weather, the wind from east and south-east, at noon on the 28th June, entering Shark's Bay at sundown on the 2nd July; and on the following morning (Monday, the 3rd July), being becalmed off the Naturaliste Channel, they remained at anchor till the 5th, when they rowed clear of Dirck Hartog's Island, and on the 8th arrived at Garaldton [Geraldton], thus accomplishing a voyage of 2500 miles as perilous, with the exception of Bligh's, in the Bounty's boat, as we have ever heard or read of; for they have twice grounded on coral reefs in an unknown sea, and for three days were in a violent gale of wind, expecting every moment to be destroyed.
They report that just previous to their arrival at Camden Harbour the settlement had been visited by a fleet of malay proas, with 400 men. They put in in want of water. Sholl directed them to an island in the bay. here they were attacked and repulsed by a body of armed natives. They then set sail, and disappeared." (Illustrated Sydney News, Sat 16 Sep 1865, in Trove)

See also a description in Chapter XIX of The Story of The Camera in Australia, by Jack Cato, F.R.P.S.
"The story of that journey is one of the great epics of the sea. They were followed by sharks and often by great yellow and black sea snakes. They went through terrific seas when they broke the rudder and lost a mast, when, says the official report, "no men, probably, were ever in greater peril for so long a time". A newspaper report of their arrival at Fremantle says : "It was one of the most daring and perilous boat voyages ever undertaken. They were welcomed home as though risen from the dead."
The diary kept by J.P. Stowe was read to the members of the Royal Geographical Society in London and at its conclusion the President remarked: "The bold adventure of Mr. Stowe and his companions seems to be almost equal to that of Lt. Bligh when set adrift from the Bounty."
Stowe's diary was published in pamphlet form by the South Australian Advertiser under the title The Forlorn Hope and is to be found in all of our chief libraries.
Those are the conditions under which Arthur Hamilton and Charles Hake made the first photographs ever taken in the Northern Territory, working the wet plate process under stresses of heat, humidity, damp and mildew, and vexed by the follies and frustrations of a leader who must have made life very difficult.
They made pictures showing the coastline from one of the ships, and after landing took the three ships from the shore. They took the setting up of the tents, the landing of the stores, the building of quarters for the officers and the men, the palisades, the store houses, the planting of crops, the making of roads and many groups of the settlers and of the natives; also the strange trees and plants, and many varied landscapes. They seem to have covered every phase of the life and setting of this strange venture.
For nearly ninety years their pictures appeared to be lost. Various collectors advertised for them in newspapers without avail. But a few years ago Mr. E. M. Christie of the Royal Victorian Historical Society discovered a considerable number of them in a private collection. They were faded and in poor condition, but he took them to George Marchant of Melbourne who copied them with great cunning and produced a set of new negatives from which perfect prints have been made."

In 1866 Charles gave evidence to the Northern Territory Commission:
"The Northern Territory Commissioners held its fifth sitting on Wednesday, at half past 10 a.m. Mr. Hamilton's examination was concluded, and Messrs. Charles Hake, and G. Warland were examined. The evidence chiefly related to the character of the country and particulars of the township. " (ref South Australian Advertiser Thur 22 Mar 1866 in Trove).

Died 19 Dec 1896 at Adelaide Hospital, South Australia.
"HAKE, - On the 19th December, at the Adelaide Hospital, Charles Hake, formerly of the Telegraph Department and also of Port Darwin; was one of the crew of the Forlorn Hope." (ref The Advertiser, SA, Mon 21 Dec 1896, in Trove)

Sidney Hake's Will was written in 1907 and reads as follows.

"FUNERAL AT BIDEFORD. By the death of Mr. George Hake, which took place at the age of 89 years, Bideford has lost a resident who for upwards of half a century filled a unique and honoured place in the religious life of the district, and one whose passing will be very keenly felt, especially by the poor, among whom he chiefly laboured. Mr. Hake had spent practically the whole of his long life in Bideford. His father, Mr. Wm. Hake, better known to the older generation at Barnstaple, came to Bideford from Exeter in 1839 and for many years kept a well-known school at "Tusculum" (now "Wellesborne") Northam, some of his sons later assisting him in his enterprise. After his retirement Mr. Wm. Hake went to Barnstable and lived at New Buildings with the scholarly and saintly Mr. Robert C. Chapman, of international reputation, with whom and the late Mr. Batt, who lived to be a nonagenarian, he was associated in the early days of the meetings of Brethren at that place. Mr. George Hake conducted the school at "Rock-house", Bideford, in which he had the valuable co-operation of his wife, who died, greatly mourned, ten years ago. Many Anglo-Indian families have the pleasantest recollections of these establishments. The deceased retired from the scholastic profession many years ago and had been living up to the time of his death at South View-terrace, Northdown-road. But it is in connection with his quiet religious and philanthropic work that Mr. Hake was best known to the present geneeration. For over sixty years he held an honoured place in the local meeting houses of the Brethren, and he literally spent his time doing good. He had been essentially an "exhorter of men," and there have been few who have known his work but have admired it, and many were brought under the spell of his gracious personality and the sincerity of his religious fervour. Latterly old age had been telling even upon his vigorous constitution, and a little over a week ago he was confined to his bed with a cold. It was hoped rest and nourishment would keep him with his friends some time longer, but a great weakness came on and he passed away on Thursday morning. He leaves a son, Mr. George A. Hake, of Edinburgh; Mr. Henry Hake, of South View, Bideford, a few years his senior, and now the only surviving of several brothers; and several nephews and nieces. There have been several examples of longevity in the family, and the late Mr. William Gordon Hake of Brighton, who was England's oldest barrister, and who lived to be 103, was a first cousin of Bideford's townsman, Mr. George Hake. The funeral took place on Sunday, the chief mourners being Mr. George A. Hake and Mrs. Hake (son and daughter -in-law), and Mr. William Marriott (Norfolk, nephew). etc" (The British Newspaper Archive, North Devon Journal, Thur 13 Apr 1916)
