  • Notes 
    • 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. [1]
