Will of Robert Blake, Gentleman of Minehead, Somerset - The National Archives PROB 11/1592/31, probated 3 May 1817

Robert Blake is the testator. He is the brother of Francis Blake whose will was blogged:

This family had a familial history linking them collaterally with Admiral Robert Blake. Robert would have the same descendancy as his brother Francis and I wrote that information up in the blog on his will. I shall check my Minehead fiche to see if I can find this marriage of Robert and Elizabeth. He does not mention any children.

There is a marriage 1 Dec 1810 by Licence between Robert Blake, bachelor, and Elizabeth Birchinshaw, spinster at Minehead St Michael.
