Check out this book for information on Francis Eastlack/Eastlake, among others, and the Quaker background and writings:

If you're curious about where the name likely came from, click this Google map link:

I don't know if or how the location of the current Eastlake farm relates to the historical "Eastlake," but it's definitely in the right area. Eastlake is often mentioned as part of Bratton Clovelly (just a bit to the northeast from the link above) in the British archives, and at least as early as 1450:

The surname is over 600 years old, and is likely derived from the place name. Click on the following link, then click on the "600 years ago" link on the left. It's a Bratton Clovelly manor court roll from 1377, and it includes mention of a Thomas Eastlake:
