  • Notes 
    • 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.
