Admirals Hawke & Blakeney, Exeter Hill

The earliest record I have been able to find is 1722 and the latest reference I have been able to find for the Admiral Hawke is 1853, it appears to have been located in Exeter Street (Exeter Road) to the north side of the Quakers Meeting House which we understand was behind it.  It is believed that the Quakers burial ground is in the garden to the rear of the pub.

Hawke is the Admiral who defeated the French at Quiberon Bay in 1759 and was a national hero at the time.

Unable to locate on the 1839 Tithe Map.

Mr Luxton, landlord of the Admiral Hawke Inn, Cullompton applied for a licence to a new house, which he was now building on the road to the Cullompton station from the town.
Police Constable Ware said that the applicant had always conducted his house creditably, for many years.
The BENCH thought that the house in question would be a great accommodation to the public, and granted the application.
