Blakely Plantation came into existence when Miles Blake came from North Carolina in 1826. Miles' wife, Susan Parish Blake, was 53 years old in 1860 and took over ownership sometime prior to 1860. Susan's son Joel Blake established Ingleside Plantation east of Blakely.
As of 1980, J. A. Cromartie, a Blake great-grandson, owned the proerty.
