Peek, Richard (I1010)
 
370 Presumed brother of Richard (Pyke) Peke (c.1520-1570). He and his brother William are mentioned in the Halwell Subsidy roll 1524/25 for goods, while a William Peke is shown in 1523/24 as assessed for land in Ashprington. John Peke is mentioned in the Blackawton Manor Court Roll for 1544 and may have been the John Peek of Halwell whose will was proved at Exeter in 1577. Both were probably married and had descendants, although no details are known. Peke, John (I1737)
 
371 Presumed brother of Richard (Pyke) Peke (c.1520-1570). He and his brother, John are mentioned in the Halwell Subsidy roll 1524/25 for goods, while a William Peke is shown in 1523/24 as assessed for land in Ashprington. John Peke is mentioned in the Blackawton Manor Court Roll for 1544 and may have been the John Peek of Halwell whose will was proved at Exeter in 1577. Both were probably married and had descendants, although no details are known. Peke, William (I1738)
 
372 Probably husband of Joan Pyke. The Blackawton Manor Court Rolls show that in 1517 he occupied a tenement at Abbotsleigh belonging to William Erlyans. In 1517/18 the lease of this tenement was formally granted to him by the court with reversion. In May 1535 Richard Peke acted as a juror in the manorial court, and he may also have been the Richard Peke involved in a debt case in February 1540. He may, however, have died in the late 1530s at the time of the dissolution of Torre Abbey. He was certainly dead by 1543/44, when his presumed wife Joan died,she being then described as a widow. Richard Peke paid lay subsidy for goods in Halwell in1524 and 1525. Peke, Richard (I1733)
 
373 Probably wife of the Richard Peke. In Devon, as in certain other counties, there was a system of granting leases for three lives, the tenancy passing by lineal inheritance. The Bedford Estate Survey of the Manor of Blackawton dated 1585 reveals that Joan Pyke was the first of three lives to hold the tenancy of the Abbotsleigh farm and that when she died in 1543/44 the tenancy was claimed and granted to her son Richard Pyke (Peke) as the second of three lives on 23 March 1543/44. As the date of her husband's death is not known it is not clear when and in what circumstances Joan Pyke obtained the tenancy. When Torre Abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1538 the Manor of Blackawton was acquired (in 1539) by Lord John Russell, later first Earl of Bedford of the second creation. It is possible that the last Abbot of Torre, Simon Rede, granted the tenancy of the Abbotsleigh farm direct to Joan Pyke at the time of the dissolution on a three lives basis if, as is likely, her husband was already dead. Pyke, Joan (I1734)

377 Raised to the rank of an earl's daughter in 1977 when her brother Anthony Louis Lovel Coke succeeded to the earldom of Leicester as sixth earl. Coke, Diana Meriel (I1287)
 
378 Rector of Adwick-le-Street, Yorks Peek, Ashley Meigh (I769)
 
379 Rector of Weeke (Wyke), Winchester (1916-1923), Vicar of Awbridge, Romsey, Hants (1923-1924). See Burke's Landed Gentry of Ireland and "The Times" of 31 October 1924 Fetherstonhaugh, Godfrey Charles (I1063)
 
380 Ronald Kidd (11 July 1889 - 13 May 1942) was a civil rights campaigner.

Born in London, England, the son of surgeon Leonard Joseph Kidd, grandson of doctor Joseph Kidd, and nephew of doctors Percy Kidd and Walter Aubrey Kidd, Ronald Hubert Kidd had a variety of jobs before finding his vocation as a campaigner against injustices in 1930s and 1940s Britain.

In 1934, angered by Police responses to hunger marchers, he founded the Council for Civil Liberty (later the National Council for Civil Liberty, or NCCL, now known as Liberty), which included such figures as E. M. Forster as its President and Clement Attlee, Aneurin Bevan, Havelock Ellis, Aldous Huxley, J. B. Priestley, Bertrand Russell, and H. G. Wells among its vice-presidents.

Please tell us your name and what you do at Liberty. My name is Ronald Hubert Kidd, and I was the first General Secretary of the National Council of Civil Liberties. In fact, I founded it, with my partner Sylvia Crowther-Smith, and the help of some very distinguished men and women.
What did you do before that? Lots of different things - I studied science at University College in London before serving in the war. I was discharged because of poor health, and I became secretary at the Wellcome Medical Museum for a while. Then I joined the civil service, working in the Ministry of Pensions until they cut pensions for 'shell-shocked' world war veterans - after everything those men had endured! I resigned in disgust. For a while after that I was a freelance journalist (where I made some contacts which were very helpful in the Council's early days) and an actor - that's how I met Sylvia, she was working as an actress. In 1933 I was working in publishing and running a little bookshop on the Strand.
How would your friends describe you? Well, my friend and associate Claud Cockburn once said I was a “saint-like man… who looked like the canon of some rather forward-looking diocese”, which was frightfully good of him. I think it's the glasses.
Have you always been a campaigner? Oh yes - before the war I joined the campaign for women's suffrage, and also gave lectures for the Workers' Educational Association. Sylvia and I joined many demonstrations against the Nazis, and of course I was always in support of the hunger marchers. Inequality appals me, and throughout my life I have refused to tolerate it.
What is the most rewarding part of your job? Injustice spurs me to action, and although I have never thought of myself as any sort of celebrity I am pleased to have been able to inspire others. Together we have achieved remarkable things, and I am terribly proud to see Liberty going from strength to strength, 75 years on.

391 Second of the eighteen children of Thomas Short of Birmingham. The mother of Thomas Short, junior, was his father's first wife, nāee Harriet Noake (1800-1847). Thomas Short, junior, was himself twice married, first to Anne Phillpot (died 1880) and secondly (in 1882) to Marion Devaran. There was no issue of the second marriage. Short, Thomas (I1337)
 
392 Second of three lives at Abbotsleigh, having obtained the reversion to the farm on 23 March 1543/44 on his mother Joan Pyke's death. Plaintiff in a case before Blackawton Manor Court in 1564/65. Assessed in subsidy rolls for goods at Halwell in 1545/46. Died 19 September 1570 (Blackawton Manor Survey, 1585). His wife Alice Peke is mentioned in the Blackawton Manor Court Roll for October 1597 as the occupant of the tenement in Abbotsleigh, together with one furlong of land, for as long as she remained a widow. Her son John Peke who of the three lives, had held the reversion of the Abbotsleigh property since the death of his father in 1570, surrendered his rights in favour of his son Richard Peke. The court granted the tenancy to the latter or life as the rightful heir, provided that he allowed his grandmother Alice Peke to continue in occupation until her death, when the property would revert to him. Alice Peke died in 1614 and was buried at Halwell on 4 June 1614. (Peke), Richard Pyke (I1735)
 
393 Second wife of James Peek (1800-1879). Daughter of Sampson Trehane, Esq., of Exeter and sister or cousin of James Trehane. Trehane, Jane (I5)
 
394 Several references to him in the Blackawton Manor Court Rolls. In 1573/4 and again in 1578/9 and 1593 there are mentions of "Richard Peike's land", while in 1592/93 he and his nephew Richard Peke (1572-1625) both appeared before the manorial court and swore allegiance to the Queen.
Richard Peke senior was probably free tenant of Shapley (Shepleigh) (Blackawton Manor Survey, 1585). Shepleigh adjoins Abbotsleigh on the east side. Richard Peke was buried at Halwell 12 March 1593/94.
In 1569 his name appeared on the muster roll of fit and able men of Halwell as "Richard Pecke, pikeman", along with John Wadland, pikeman, and Richard Tucker, one of several harquebusiers.
There is no evidence that this Richard Peke ever married, but a Robert Peke (Peike), son of a Richard Peke and baptised at Blackawton on 27 October 1566, may have been his son. 
(Peike), Richard Peke (I1739)
 
395 Sister of Henry Heneage Finch (1863-1939), husband of Mary Frances Peek and daughter of Arthur Finch, Esq. She was the first wife of Richard Habberfield Short and mother of his five eldest children. Finch, Ann Helen (I1049)
