Bap of Ann Bedford 28 Apr 1760 at Saint Thomas The Apostle, Exeter, Devon, dau of James BEDFORD and Ann (ref FamilySearch C050531 and Parish record 0916844). James Bedford married Ann EAST 22 Oct 1749 at Exeter St John; James's residence Allhallows on the Wall, Ann's residence Exeter St John (ref findmypast). There were many children.

The following extract is believed to refer to Robert: "Thursday July 5 1804 Exeter To be sold at auction, at the Star Inn, on Wednesday the eleventh day of July next, at five o'clock in the afternoon, (unless before disposed of by private Contract) Lot 1st - For a Term of eight hundred years, all that large and convenient dwelling-house, with a shop in front, advantageously situate for Business, on Fore street Hill, now in the Occupation of Mr Robert Hake, whose Term expires at Lammas, 1806; together with sundry dwellings behind the same, now let to yearly Tenants." (Ref Trewman's Exeter Flying Post, British Newspapers online).

In 1805 Robert witnessed his son Thomas's marriage.

Burial of Robert Hake 24 Sep 1813 in the parish of St Mary Steps, Exeter, Devon, note All Hallows On The Walls, age 56 (ref findmypast from DFHS).
Robert died 20 Sep 1813 (probably from gravestone; apparently the gravestone indicates he was born in 1746).

Robert's Will (signed 25 Jul 1808) is attached. In summary, his Executors were his son Robert Hake, and Samuel Mortimer, Attorney at Law of Exeter. His business was as a Salesman or Broker, carried out at his home. His wife Ann was given maintenance and support unless she married again (which she did not) and she was given authority for the welfare of the children, who also were to receive the proceeds of the estate. His son Thomas was forgiven any debts; as it happened, Thomas died in 1812 at the age of 26, prior to his father's death. Robert's business was very successful and the effects were sworn under 1500, a very large sum at the time.
