  • Notes 
    • Third of three lives at Abbotsleigh, having been granted the reversion to the property on 19 September 1570 on the death of his father Richard (Blackawton Manor Survey, 1585).
      John Peke married his first wife nee 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.
      John Peke died in either 1595 or, more probably, 1615 at Halwell, where the burial of a John Peke is recorded on 17 November.
