    • Ann Fletcher tell me this: I have a copy of James Hake and Matilda Scott's Marriage Certificate which I photo-copied at the Taunton Record Office. I also believe that James' parents were John Hake (b: abt 1767) and Elizabeth Mitchell (b: abt 1768). I was given this information by a researcher in Canada but as yet I have not established my own proof. I am still searching! Regards Ann.
