  • Notes 
    • 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.
