Richard and Anne (Wardell) Lake

Richard LAKE - b. about 1539, possibly at Rawreth, Essex; bur. Sep. 24, 1599, North Benfleet, Essex. His will, dated Sep. 17, 1599, names sons John and Richard, daughters Margaret, Sybil and Joan by their married names, and his brother William. The names of his parents are not known, and connections to extended lines through Lancelot LAKE and Margaret TWISLETON appear to be conjecture. Richard LAKE had at least three brothers and two sisters. Brother John LAKE married first on Feb. 3. 1558/9 at Runwell, Essex to Elizabeth LONE (bur. Mar. 10, 1588/9, North Benfleet), and second on Apr. 28, 1589 at North Benfleet to Mary CASTLE. The latter was married second on May 26, 1597 at North Benfleet to John GREENE of Rawreth, Essex. Richard's brother Robert LAKE had a daughter Susan (bap. Aug. 22, 1574, Runwell, Essex; bur. there Oct. 8, 1574) and other children. Richard's brother William LAKE was living and married in Sep. 1599. One of Richard's sisters married Mr. PORTER and had sons John and George, and another married Mr. BROOMAN and had son John. Richard also had a "sister CRACKNELL", but it's unclear if she was a sister or sister-in-law. Richard resided with his brother John LAKE at Great Fanton Hall, Essex in 1596.

Anne WARDELL - b. about 1543; d. Sep. 22, 1599, Wickford, Essex.
