Was manager of the estates Of Thomas Lewis, Esq. Here he married Sarah Lewis, a farmer's daughter in Trelleck about 1788. They settled down on a small farm of 40 acres and had 10 children, two of whom died in infancy. The other six sons and two daughters lived to grow up and get married, except the youngest, Thomas who was an old bachelor.

During the search for the Lake family in Trelleck, I had identified all but one family of Lakes and knew how they fit into my tree. I met on the internet Lesley (Lake) who lived in Australia. The two of us looked for clues as to how George might be related. We felt the connection was there but couldn't prove it. Through the reading of Henry Lake's will we found that, indeed, Henry had a son named George. Needless to say we were excited for finding the connection and had many hours of emailing back and forth to put together the rest of the family as you see it here.
Misc. Notes
Documentation includes a copy of Henry Lake and Sarah marriage by Banns from the National Library of Wales. ALso a copy of the Henry Lake's will.
