Philemon Charles Blake
Elizabeth Blake
Henrietta Maria Lloyd Blake
Charles Blake

Philemon Charles Blake died 6 Feb 1761. Since the administrator of the will was appointed by Sarah Blake (widow), now named Sarah Anderson, and named William Anderson, Philemon Charles Blake must not yet be 21 years of age at the time of probate in 1766.
