  • ID: I20549
  • Name: Henry FEAKE
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1590
  • Will: 24 SEP 1657
  • Death: BET 1657 AND 1658 in Newtown, LI, NY
  • Note:
    FEAKE, HENRY, Lynn, was admitted freeman in 1634, and removed, according to Mr. Lewis, to Sandwich in 1637.
    The Great Migration: NEHGS
    ORIGIN: London
    MIGRATION: 1633
    REMOVES: Sandwich 1639, Newtown (Long Island) by 1656
    OCCUPATION: Goldsmith (in London).
    CHURCH MEM BERSHIP: Admission to Lynn church prior to 14 May 1634 implied by freemanship.
    FREEMAN: 14 May 1634 [ MBCR 1:369]. Requested admission as Plymouth freeman, 4 June 1639 [ PCR 1:126]; although there is no subsequent record of the admission of Henry Feake, a "Mr. John Feake, of Sandwich," was made free on 7 June 1642 [ PCR 2:40]. There was no adult John Feake at Sandwich at this time, and so this record must be for Henry Feake, which explains his addition to the Sandwich section of the Plymouth list of freemen which had been initially compiled in 1639 [ PCR 8:176].
    OFFICES: Essex jury, 26 June 1638 [ EQC 1:8]. Plymouth grand jury, 7 June 1642 [ PCR 2:41]. Deputy for Sandwich to Plymouth General Court, 6 June 1643, 29 August 1643 [ PCR 2:57, 60].
    In Sandwich portion of 1643 Plymouth list of men able to bear arms [ PCR 8:192].
    ESTATE: On 16 April 1640 Henry Feake was appointed to a committee to resolve a dispute over Sandwich meadow lands, and in the resulting resolution he was awarded twenty acres of meadow, with another acre given to "Mr. Feak's house" [ PCR 1:147, 149, 150].
    On 20 May 1640 "Henry Feake of Sandwich, gent.," granted to "my loving brother George Feake of Wightin," Norfolk, gent., "my new house" with "all the upland and meadow ground which appertains and belongs unto me excepting two acres of upland [and] one acre of meadow" [ PCLR 3:123
    On 2 April 1658 "judgment in the case of the heirs of Johanna Wheeler vs. the heirs of Henry Feaks, husband of said Wheeler; annuls the will of Feaks, and directs that the property of both the deceased persons be inventoried and appraised, and after paying their debts, be equally divided among their surviving children" [ Calendar of Historical Manuscripts in the Office of the Secretary of State, Albany, NY, Part I, Dutch Manuscripts 1630-1664 , ed. Edmund B. O'Callaghan (1865), p. 194, citing 8:801 of the Dutch Manuscripts]. This document was partially burned in the 1911 fire in Albany, but reveals that Feake had three children by a previous marriage and Wheeler had two children by a previous husband. The annulled will of Feake was apparently dated 24 September 1657 [ NYGBR 86:209].
    On 1 March 1670/1 "John Feake of Wighton, Norfolk, gent., son and heir of George Feake, late of Wighton aforesaid, gent., deceased" sold to Robert Harper of Sandwich "all those the houses, lands, tenements, meadows, pastures, uplands, hereditaments of him the said John Feake and late of George Feake his said father deceased, which did sometimes belong and appertain to one Henry Feake, brother of the said George Feake" [ PCLR 3:269].
    BIRTH: About 1590 (based on date of marriage and date of father's marriage), son of John and Cicely (Reeve) Feake [ NYGBR 86:209].
    DEATH: After 24 September 1657 (date of will) and before 2 April 1658 (date of judgment).
    MARRIAGE: (1) St. Saviour's, Southwark, Surrey, 22 January 1615/6 (lic.) Jane Woolstone [ NYGBR 86:209]; d. after 1633.
    (2) by 1657 Joanna (_____) Wheeler, widow of _____ Wheeler.
    CHILDREN (London church records from NYGBR 86:209-10):
    i Crisome child, bur. St. Mary Woolnoth, London, 15 June 1617.

    ii JANE, bp. St. Mary Woolnoth, London, 2 June 1618; d. young.

    iii EDWARD, bp. St. Margaret's, Westminster, Middlesex, 2 November 1619; bur. there 1 May 1620.

    iv JANE, bp. St. Margaret's, Westminster, Middlesex, 4 May 1621; no further record.

    v JUDITH, bp. St. Margaret's, Westminster, Middlesex, 10 July 1622; bur. there 17 March 1623.

    vi MARY, bp. St. Margaret's, Westminster, Middlesex, 27 August 1623; no further record.

    vii Stillborn child, bur. St. Peter's Cornhill, London, 10 October 1630.

    viii JOHN, bp. St. Peter's Cornhill, London, 20 November 1631; McCracken notes that when Henry Feake went to New England, this son remained in England and attended the Merchant Taylors' School [ NYGBR 86:209-10], and also says he came later, citing PCLR 3:269, a deed which was made not by this John but by his cousin of the same name of Wighton, Norfolk, England (see above under ESTATE).

    ix ELIZABETH, bp. St. Peter's Cornhill, London, 30 June 1633; m. Sandwich 24 March 1650/1 John Dillingham [ PCR 8:11].

    ASSOCIATIONS: HENRY FEAKE was second cousin of ROBERT FEAKE of Watertown [ NYGBR 86:132-48], and of Robert's brother James, whose children Judith and Tobias also came to New England at a later date [ NYGBR 86:210-12].
    COMMENTS: The Feake family, both in England and in the colonies, was treated in great detail by George E. McCracken in 1955 [ NYGBR 86:132-48, 209-21, 87:28-30, 104-10, with Henry Feake at 86:209-10].
    The gap in the records for Henry Feake from 1623 to 1630 should be a subject for future research; he may have been in a London parish whose records are lost. Since he had a child baptized in London in June 1633, but was made a freeman in New England in May 1634, he must have arrived to New England in the fall of 1633, perhaps in the Griffin, which left England in July of that year.
    As noted above, Henry Feake was survived by three children, one of whom would be daughter Elizabeth who married John Dillingham. Unless there were children born but unrecorded after the family arrived in New England in 1633, the second and third must be found among son John and the two daughters, Jane and Mary, baptized in London but not further of record.
    On 3 April 1637 Henry Feake was one of the "ten men of Saugus" who were granted the tract of land which became Sandwich [ PCR 1:57], but he does not seem to have moved from Lynn until 1639, for he is on an Essex county jury in 1638, and he does not appear again in Plymouth Colony records until his request for freemanship.
    On 25 September 1639 "Mr. Henry Feake, of Sandwich," assigned to John Barnes of Plymouth the remainder of the term of his servant Edmond Edwards [ PCR 1:132].
