John Wake was born in 1268, the son of Balwin Wake and Hawise de Quincy.
He campaigned in Gascony between 1288 and 1297. He campaigned against the Scots between 1297-1300. To this he was appointed Joint Captain of March of Scotland in Cumberland and Westmoreland in 1297. He fought at the Battle of Falkirk (1298).
He was married Joan de Fenes by 24 September 1291. She was allegedly daughter of Sir John FitzBernard, of Kingsdown, Kent or William de Fenes/Fiennes, a Spanish Count, and Blanche de Brienne, Dame de La Loupelande. Joan de Fiennes was possibly a relative of Edward I. She died just prior to 26 October 1309.
