The Blake family is of ancient English origin. It was mentioned on the Wiltshire rolls of subsidies granted by Edward I., A. D. 1286,and Robert de Blakeland was assessed to that king's requirement. The family owned large tracts of land in Blakeland. The Blake family is a very ancient English family. The name is a corruption of Welsh ap Lake from ap signifying from, or son and lake -the son of Lake. Ap lake was one of the Knights of "Arthur's Round Table". The name Blake is recorded in its present form in the hundredsrolls of 1273, in which appears Hans le blake.
