PETER BLAKE FAMILY

              of Augusta Co., VA, and Greene Co., TN

PPT = Personal Property Tax Book.  LT = Land Tax Book

The family organization below was made possible by the generous 
sharing by Bob Donaghe of his late father's research on the Donaghe
family, especially the copy he found of the final estate settlement
which included bequests to ALL of the grandchildren of Hugh 
Donaghe.  I had proven the ancestry of Sarah Blake.  The estate
settlement proved siblings of Sarah Blake which could have been
identified in no other way.  This Blake family owes much to James
Jasper Donaghe for his research.

The first Blake I have found on record in Augusta Co. was a John
who was listed in the court records of 1773 as a Vice Constable. 
In the PPT Books of 1782 are a Theophilus and a George Blake. 
Peter Blake first appears in 1783.  In 1787, are a Theophilus,
John, Thomas and Peter.  The relationship of these men to Peter, if
any, is not known.  A Samuel Bleke witnessed the deed of 2 Oct 1789
from Peter and Sarah Blake to Hugh Donaghe.  I have no idea who he
was.  A James and a Samuel Blake were being sued in Augusta Co. on
20 May 1789.  I do not know who they were.  This James would be too
old to be the son of Peter.

My uncle, Winfred Broadus Smith, in researching this family in the 
1960s, said he thought Sarah who m. Thomas Stockton was a sister of 
Peter Blake.  The 1795 deed in Greene Co., TN, of Hugh Donaghe of
Augusta Co., VA, clearly states that his granddaughter Sarah Blake, 
was the daughter of Peter Blake.  The deed of 1789 in Augusta Co.
of Peter Blake and Sarah his wife, gives us the name of the
daughter of Hugh Donaghe.  We do not know who was the mother of
Sarah Donaghe.  Sarah (DONAGHE) BLAKE seems to have died not long
after the deed of 1789.  Peter m. Mary McMahan on 6 Sep 1792 in
Augusta Co.   

The Roane Co., TN, censuses of 1830 and 1840, have Sarah Blake as
old enough to have been born between 1780 and 1790.  This means
that her mother Sarah, must have been born between 1755 and 1760 as
she seems to have had four children older than Sarah.  Peter
Blake's wife Sarah, was not named in her father's will, probably
meaning she was dead.
  
She was an illegitimate daughter of Hugh DONAGHE of Augusta Co.,
VA, and might have been born before he married his first wife
Elizabeth.  Hugh gave much money and land to his children by his
wives.  In his will, he left 50 to all of his grandchildren.  Many
of whom were not named in the will.  The estate settlement record
of these bequests made it possible to identify all of his
grandchildren.  The deeds of Augusta Co., VA, and Greene Co., TN,
and marriage records of Greene Co., made it possible to place them
in their parents families.  Sarah's surname is in quotes as I do
not know the surname she used.  Normally an illegitimate child used
the name of it's mother but it could assume the surname of it's
father.  

In English Common Law, which was the basic law of the Colonies, an 
illegitimate child could inherit nothing from a father, as the law 
considered that the child was the "child of no one".  But the
surname of the father could be assumed.  The father could give them
possessions but they could inherit nothing from him.  This regidity
protected the rights of the legal heirs.     

Some have claimed that Hugh was a son of a John Donaghe of
Kelklief, Co. Down, Ulster.  I have seen no proof of this and so am
not claiming it.

these children, listed as grandchildren, according to the estate

based on estimated age of about 18 at marriage.  Only for Sarah do
I have anything else to go on.
