Sir Patrick Blake 2nd Bart.

???? - 25th Jul 1818


Son of Sir Patrick Blake 1st bart., son-in-law of James Farrill or Farrell Phipps who was the son of Constantine Phipps senior.

  1. Sir Patrick Blake (2nd bart.) lived at Bury St Edmunds, where he and his wife (the daughter and heiress of James Phipps of St Kitts) were neighbours of Benjamin Greene (q.v.). Langham Hall was let from 1805. Sir Patrick was in St Kitts in the 1780s and 1790s. Patrick and his brother James were tenants for life of the entailed West India estates, which carried debt of £17,500 in 1792. Benjamin Greene in 1817 was made a trustee of Sir Patrick and Lady Blake's marriage settlement of 1792. When Sir Patrick died in July 1818 he left £18,000, and his wife was entitled to an annuity of £1,500 p.a. (his brother was then entitled to charge the estates with a similar amount for his own wife and £15,000 for the benefit of his younger children); when Sir Patrick's wife died in 1823 she left Benjamin Greene a half share in her properties, an estate at St Nicola Town in St Kitts and a smaller property in Montserrat. Sir James Blake, having succeeded to his brother's property, faced both running charges of £4,170 p.a., and debt owed to the assignees of the consignee James Wildman. He raised a further £21,800 on mortgage (presumably to consolidate his debts, and embracing the land in Suffolk, and 3 estates on St Kitts - Sandy Point, Penels and Diamond Point - and one on Montserrat), and wrote off his family claims. Three trustees were appointed: Benjamin Greene, John Gage of Roegate Sussex and Henry Adeane of Babraham in Cambridgeshire.
