Administration of Elizabeth Blake, widow, Up Hatherley, Gloucestershire - Diocese of Bristol Wills on Ancestry, administered 15 Mar 1724

Another interesting administration and this time for Elizabeth Blake mother of Giles Blake of the City of Gloucester. Elizabeth lived at Up Hatherley which is just four miles from the City of Gloucester. There is a Gyles Blake son of Thomas Blake baptized at Prestbury which is just 5 miles from Up Hatherley 30 Nov 1687. Also baptized to Thomas at Prestbury 6 Jun 1686 a Thomas and 18 Dec 1689 John (deceased 19 Dec 1689). As well Thomas 8 Feb 1684, Martha 29 Apr 1683 and Frances 29 Jun 1684. Googling Thomas Blake at Prestbury did not reveal anything more about this family. There is a will for a Thomas Blake 1712 to come (more information found for this testator).

Page 2 is clearly written in latin and I believe it is saying that Giles has presented himself to the Court and requested to administer his mother Elizabeth Blake’s estate in that she has died intestate.

Page 3 is another clearly written latin document and I do hope that one day my skills will extend to reading latin. It would appear to be a supporting document for a William Terrell.

Since the administration of the estate is awarded to Giles on the 15th it would appear that the document of the 8th was not taken into account.This is a redo of blog:
