The earliest reference that I have on Thomas Flake is that he is named in a land plat for Frederick Ward for 200 acres on Smith Creek in 96 District. His land probably bordered that of Frederick Ward's, but I cannot be sure since I have not personally viewed the plat. Interestingly, Samuel Flake's homestead was a 250 acre plot of land on Smith's Creek.

I have no record of any Flake's in SC before the 1790 census. Of course, Robert Dunlap, husband of Sarah Flake (his second wife), took up land before the Revolution on Granny's Quarters Creek near Camden.
