404 The earliest proved ancestor of the Peeks of Hazelwood. Although his parentage is not known and no record of his baptism has been found, he must have been born around 1594 and almost certainly at Blackawton, Halwell or a neighbouring parish. He was married on 1 August or 1 September 1616 at Blackawton to Jane Tucker, who was baptised there on 21 January 1594/95 and a member of a family long resident in Blackawton. He may have been the Richard Peke named as a juror in the Blackawton Manor Court in September 1619 and April 1620. In 1625/26 and 1627/28 he was assessed for goods at Halwell. He was probably the Richard Peke who was churchwarden at Halwell in 1635. Although the date of Richard Peke's death is not known this must have taken place before 1641/42, as he did not sign the Protestation Roll at Halwell in that year. His three children were born at Halwell in 1618, 1620 and 1626. Peke, Richard (I1666)

406 The Fraser-MacKenzies

The Forbesí Trustees sold the House to John Fraser in August 1842 for sum of Ļ13,650. He was a tea merchant and a native of Inverness. His son Robert married Beatrice Mackenzie of Ord and the name became Fraser-Mackenzie. She owned Allangrange estate. Their son Jack was in charge of the estate.

Their other son Leo was an officer in the Inverness Battery, Royal Horse Artillery and served through the 1914-18 war under General Allenby in Palestine. He retired with the rank of major and became factor for the Bunchrew and Allangrange estates until his death after a serious illness.

During the 1939-45 war the House was occupied by the Royal Air Force. There was also a great sensation round about this time when their cousin Dick met a tragic death by falling from the balcony of the Highland Club in Inverness.

407 The records show that the Wadland family had been settled in Halwell for the greater part of the sixteenth century and for the whole of the seventeenth. During most of that time they were closely associated with the Peeks. The first mention found refers to Walter Wadland, who was assessed for goods in 1550/51. In 1569 John Wadland was named in the muster roll for Halwell as a pikeman along with Richard Pecke. During the first half of the seventeenth century two brothers, John Wadland, senior, and Leonard Wadland, senior, accumulated a considerable amount of property and land in Halwell parish, and it was their line with which the Peeks were particularly associated.
On 25 November 1618 John Wadland, senior, married Alice Kinge of Harberton by licence, and no doubt he and his wife became closely acquainted with their contemporary, Richard Peeke (born c.1594) (see note 5), and the latter's widow Jane after her husband's death.
In 1641/42 John Wadland senior, and his son John (born c.1620) both signed the Protestation Roll for Halwell. In 1647 John Wadland, senior, was listed on the subsidy roll, as before, for Halwell, but the name "John Wadland of Halwell" also appeared on the Cornworthy roll for the first time.
On 25 July 1660 John Wadland, senior, was buried at Halwell.

On 6 September 1668 John Wadland junior's daughter Grace married Jane Peeke's elder son Richard at Blackawton as his second wife, and their second daughter Margaret Peeke was named after Grace's mother Margaret Wadland. On 25 July 1660 John Wadland, senior, was buried at Halwell. On 15 September 1656 Leonard Wadland, the above mentioned Grace's younger brother, was born at Halwell, son of John Wadland junior and his wife Margaret. It was this Leonard Wadland (named after his uncle Leonard Wadland) who acted as bondsman for his friend John Peeke, half-brother of Richard Peeke, when John was married by licence to Mary Robbins at Harberton in April 1680. Wadland, Grace (I1686)
 
409 The Sparke Family

A prominent Blackawton family the names of whose members appear frequently in the subsidy rolls, the manorial court rolls and other records for at least 200 years between c.1525 and the early eighteenth century. John Peke married Alis Sparke, daughter of Thomas Sparke of Blackawton. In Blackawton Church there is the well-preserved tomb of the Rev'd Richard Sparke, who was buried 4 April 1700.

411 The Tucker family
This family has resided in the Blackawton area since at least the beginning of the sixteenth century to the present day. In 1525 two John Tuckers were assessed for goods on the subsidy roll, while in 1581/82 and 1591/92 Nicholas, John and William Tucker, who were probably brothers, were all similarly assessed at Blackawton.
On 1 August (or 1 September) 1616 Richard Peke (born c.1594) and Jane Tucker (1594/95-1665/66) were married at Blackawton; she was the daughter of Nicholas Tucker and baptised at Blackawton 21 January 1594/95.

On 22 September 1574 William Tucker married Joan Peke, daughter of Richard Pyke (Peke) (c.1520-1570), at Blackawton, and during the seventeenth century there were at least two other marriages between Pekes and Tuckers.
On 1 August (or 1 September) 1616 Richard Peke (born c.1594) and Jane Tucker (1594/95-1665/66) were married at Blackawton; she was the daughter of Nicholas Tucker and baptised at Blackawton 21 January 1594/95. Luce Peke, one of Richard and Jane Peke's daughters, married another Nicholas Tucker at Blackawton on 27 June 1654; she and her husband were almost certainly first cousins. In 1641/42 a Nicholas Tucker (probably father of the last-mentioned Nicholas) was Constable of Blackawton. 
Tucker, William (I1750)
 
413 The White family had been settled in Cornworthy since the beginning of the sixteenth century. In 1641/42 Edward and Thomas White signed the Cornworthy Protestation Roll, while in 1674 Edward, Philip and Jonathan White were all assessed there for hearth tax. In 1647 Edward White and John Parrett acted as Assessors for the subsidy roll at Cornworthy. John Parrett was the owner of Gitcombe, an estate adjoining Allaleigh in the parish of Cornworthy. Edward White (described as 'senior' in a document) also possessed land in Allaleigh.

Mary Peeke n‚ee White was baptised at Cornworthy on 27 February 1671/72, daughter of James and Mary White. James was no doubt a son of Edward White, senior, or of one of the other Whites mentioned above. Mary White married John Peeke as his second wife at Cornworthy on 17 April 1694, and they had at least two children.

John Peke married his first wife n‚ee Alis Sparke at Blackawton, and after her death in 1580 he married Joan Langworthie at Blackawton. She died in childbirth ("in sonne") in 1587 shortly after her daughter Joan.
In October 1597 John Peke appeared before Blackawton Manor Court and surrendered his reversion to the Abbotsleigh farm and land, which had been occupied by his mother Alice Peke since the death of her husband, in favour of his elder son Richard Peke (1572-1625), who was admitted as tenant.
