Blake (first name and dates unknown) was an English first-class cricketer who made a single appearance for Surrey in 1773.[1] Blake made one known first-class appearance, scoring 8 runs with a highest innings of 8. He did not bowl.[1][2]

As Blake had established his reputation by 1773, he must have been active for some years previously and his career probably began in the 1760s. Very few players were mentioned by name in contemporary reports and there are no other references to Blake.
