  • Notes 
    • 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.
