Will of Robert Blake - The National Archives PROB 11/177, probated 4 Sep 1638

Robert Blake may or may not be on the Jonah (not known if this is Merchant Marine or Royal Navy, nothing found online). It isn’t really possible to tell that. His sister is Elizabeth Blake and a friend perhaps Dorothy Windsor.
