Robert Kirby Bkae was my great Grandfather. his father was named William L. Blake. i cannott find any iformation on either of them in the United Staes so I am reaching out to the U.K.I do know that Robert Kirby Blake lived in Kentucky at one time as that was where my Grandfather Orville Leonard Blake was born as well as my father Frand Dalton Blake. I know the Blakes and the Kirby families married and sometimes throughout history maiden names were used as middle names.

Any information that can be shared will be much appreciated.

Hi Dean,

I plugged Robert Kirby Blake, residence Kentucky, into familysearch.org:

https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3A%22Robert%20Kirby%22~%20%2Bsurname%3ABlake~%20%2Bresidence_place%3AKentucky~

There is a census listing Orville - you can look through the listings to see if anything helps you in your research - good luck!  :-)
