He was born in Halifax in the West Riding of Yorkshire and educated at St John's College, Cambridge,[1] where he was tutored by the poet John Cleveland, whose biography he later wrote and whose works he edited and published. He graduated B.A. in 1642.

Lake was an ardent Royalist and fought valiantly for King Charles I at Basing House and Wallingford.

On leaving the army, Lake entered the Church. He was ordained in 1647, and graduated D.D. (litterae regiae) at Cambridge in 1661. He held the following livings:

Lake was appointed Bishop of Sodor and Man on 7 January 1683. He was translated to Bristol on 12 August 1684 and to Chichester on 19 October 1685. He was one of the Seven Bishops who opposed the Declaration of Indulgence and were imprisoned by King James II. However, during the Glorious Revolution, he voted for a regency for the Kings's son. He refused to accept William and Mary and was suspended from office on 1 August 1689. Lake died on 30 August following.
