Lee Lineage


 
Richard Henry Lee (b. 1628, d. 3-1-1664)

Richard Lee, the Immigrant, was born in Worcester, England.  His father was John Lee whose business was in Worcester, a prosperous community in western England located along the banks of the Severn River.  More than half of the town’s population engaged in the production of manufactured cloth.   Richard Lee’s mother was Jane Hancock from Twinings, a few miles south of Worcester whose family was also in the cloth trade.  John and Jane Lee’s mill first opened for business in 1615.  As clothiers in Worcester, the Lees had a slight advantage over some of the other manufacturers in the vicinity.  Jane’s father, Edward Hancock, also owned substantial textile factories in Worcester and in nearby Twinings.  John Lee, Richard’s father, died in February 1629, and his wife Jane died in 1639 leaving a will naming her three sons: John, Thomas, and Richard.  In 1643, Richard would become the Attorney General of the Colony.  In addition, he served as High Sheriff and was Colonel in the Militia.  In 1649, Sir Richard acquired his first tract of land in present-day Gloucester County, Virginia on the north side of the York River across from present-day Yorktown.  In 1651 Lee patented a 1,000-acre tract on Poropotank Creek, a tributary of the York River about twenty miles above the river’s mouth. Later he would increase the acreage to 1500 acres. The patent was obtained by Richard to pay for the transportation of seventeen indentured servants to work the tract. On Poropotank Creek he planted tobacco and established trade with the Indians in the area. Richard called his estate “Paradise” and resided there from 1653 to 1656.  He eventually set up an Indian trading post and tobacco warehouse. Disposing of several lesser properties he had obtained, Lee was able to consolidate and develop four major plantations.  He had two in Gloucester County, Virginia:  “War Captain’s Neck” and “Paradise” and two in Northumberland County, Virginia: “Dividing Creek” and “Machodoc.”  He also acquired a plantation called “Lee’s Purchase” located across the Potomac in Maryland.  Sometime around 1647, seven years after marrying Anne, he moved to “Dividing Creek,” Northumberland County, Virginia. Although Richard Lee had been steadily patenting land since 1642, he did not become a planter until 1652 when, as Secretary of State, he negotiated the capitulation of Virginia to the Commonwealth of England and then retired from public office. Thereafter he spent almost as much time in London as in Virginia. He was not only developing his plantations in Gloucester County, but also operating as a London merchant trading in Virginia. Richard Lee established his residence on Dividing Creek in the Spring of 1656 and his tenth and last child, Charles Lee, was born there in May of that year.  The original Lee home stood near the turn from Cobbs Hall Lane into the woods surrounding the graveyard. Richard Lee had been in residence here only two years when he again returned, alone, to London.  In 1658, he acquired a residence at Stratford Langton, then a pleasant suburb of London, and in 1661, moved his family there.  He did that to make sure his younger children would have a proper education but his hope was that they would return to reside in Virginia.  In February 1661, after five years in residence on Dividing Creek, the Lee family moved, bag and baggage, to its new home in England.  In the hearth tax return for 1662, Richard was assessed for nine hearths (houses).  Even though Richard was a resident of England, he continued in his role as a Virginian farmer and merchant. Three years later, Richard Lee returned, accompanied only by his eldest son, John, to have a look at his Virginia plantations. Apparently he contracted a fatal illness on shipboard, for he reached Dividing Creek a dying man.  On March 1, 1664, Richard died at “Dividing Creek” while overseeing his interest in the Colony.  He was buried in the garden of his last Virginia home.  By then Lee owned more than 15,000 acres of land in Virginia, land in Maryland, and a large estate outside of London, at Stratford-Langhorne.  He was wealthy and held more land than anyone in Virginia at that time.  The account of his property given in his will shows him to have possessed considerable wealth for that day.  If his tobacco crop was actually worth £2000 as estimated and his estate at Stratford Langton worth £800 a year as stated, then Richard Lee must have enjoyed an income larger than most of the early planters.  In accordance with his will, Richard Lee's family returned to Virginia.  His widow lived there with her second husband, Edmund Lister, and the younger children according to the Encyclopedia of Virginia Biographies. 

m. Anne Owen Constable (b. 2-21-1619, m. 2-1641, d. 10-6-1706)

Anne was a ward of Sir John Thoroughgood, a personal attendant to Charles I, King of England. She had accompanied the family of Virginia Governor Sir Francis Wyatt to America in 1639 to escape a certain death from the plague in England, for Anne lost both her parents shortly after her departure. At the time of her marriage to Richard, she was residing at the Wyatt household in Jamestown.  This affiliation soon helped Richard move socially upward within the Colony. It is believed that Richard may also have accompanied Wyatt on his voyage back to America in 1639.  Records have been found to show that Anne was born on February 21, 1619 in London and was baptized in South Scarle, Nottinghamshire, England on February 21, 1622.  She was one of many daughters born to Francis Constable and Alice Owen Constable.  She is buried in the Lee Cemetery at Dividing Creek.   Anne was a very healthy young woman giving birth to ten children including two sets of twins.  After Richard’s death in 1664, she married Edmund Lister.  She is buried in the Lee Cemetery in

Col. William Lee (b. 1651, d. 1696)

William was born in 1651, in Charles City, Virginia and died about 1696. He was named in his father’s will as a younger son. William inherited the land in Maryland, a plantation called Bishop Neck or Lee’s Purchase. It was situated at Dividing Creek on the Maryland side.  He also received some of the plantation on which his mother lived.  In the Rent Rolls for Charles County, Maryland, 250 acres was sold to Philip Lynes by William Lee on May 15, 1677.  We still do not know how much of the property he kept or whether he chose to live on the property.  There is also no available record as to what kind of education he received in the early colony.  However, we do know some records exist that indicate he had a record of public service and possibly acquired some acreage besides what he inherited.  At various times he was a justice, captain of the Militia, member of the House of Burgess, and local agent for London merchants.

Born in Northampton, Northumberland County, Virginia and died in Richmond County, Virginia.

m. Dorothy Taylor

Dorothy was born in 1682 as the daughter of Thomas Taylor and Elizabeth Harwood in Surry, King and Queen County, Virginia. She died on February 25, 1754, and her will was probated in Amelia County, Virginia.  Information on Dorothy comes from the book From Log Cabins to the White House by Mary Taylor Brewer.  After William’s death Dorothy remarried to Thomas Cribbin in 1718 and later to Richard Croucher in 1728.  Dorothy was also left wearing apparel in her mother’s will dated 1717 in Richmond County, Virginia.  Dorothy and her brother were administrators of her husband William Lee’s estate.  Letters of Administration of the Estate of William Lee to Dorothy Lee, relict of William Lee on December 4, 1717 recorded in the Amelia County, Virginia Order Book 7, p. 226 helps prove this lineage.  On April 13, 1745, Dorothy was witness to a will of Henry Williams in Richmond County, Virginia signed by Dorothy Lee Croucher.  This William Lee and Dorothy Taylor are currently being challenged by genealogists and researchers as to their family heritage after having been accepted by the Lee family for over 200 years.

Children:         William Lee (b. 5-14-1704, died 1764) - m. 1) Anne, 2) Mary Thornton about 1746, 3) Jane. He was born in Richmond County, North Farnham Parish, Virginia; his will was probated in Richmond County, Virginia (Will Book 6, p. 361).  William and Anne had four children:  Elizabeth, Nancy Anna, Sarah and Richard.  With Mary Thornton he had four children:  William III, Peter, Mark, and John.  William worked in Lunenburg Parish as overseer on the plantation of Thomas Barber.  His name appears many times between 1740-1750 in court files suing and being sued.  He returned to North Farnham Parish and became a tenant farmer.  Later in life, he lived in poverty. According to author Clara Funai he lived on Lick Run Road and was buried in Bedford County, Virginia. His wife Ave Noel and son Garrett were buried in the same cemetery.  Brewer also stated William’s daughter Nancy Ann Taylor married Joseph Hanks, great-grandfather of President Abraham Lincoln.

Born in Richmond or Goochland County, Virginia; baptized in North Farnham Parish Church, Richmond County, Virginia; later he moved to Cumberland County, Virginia in Southam and Littleton Parishes near Farmville when property was given to him by his brother-in-law, Joseph Dabbs, in 1741.  In 1743 Charles and Ann Lee sold the land “whereon they lived” to Thomas Bassett. In 1756, Charles bought 200 acres of land in the Parish of Southam from Edward Henderson near Brown’s Church.  It was to this church that the Charles Lee family belonged.  During the American Revolution, the lawn of the Charles Lee homestead was a muster ground for soldiers. There was an armory established on or nearby this place and Charles Lee, being a silversmith, used his ingenuity in repairing arms for the Revolution.  This information for Charles Lee, Sr. as a Patriot is documented in DAR records (Ancestor # A068481).  He died in Cumberland County, Virginia in 1799, leaving a will naming his wife, five grandsons and granddaughter Keziah Cox. (Source: Cumberland County Will Book 3, p. 134, Last Will and Testament of Charles Lee dated 11-9-1793.)

William Needham (Needom, Needum, Neadam) Lee, Jr. (b. 1805, m. 9-28-1826, d. 1881,)
Needham Lee was born in Oglethorpe County, Georgia but later moved to Bulloch County, Georgia as a young man. Needham was listed in Bulloch County in the 1830 census but not present in the 1820 census.  Needham won Land Lot 114, District 21, Bulloch County on April 24, 1827 which was 202½ acres, and he paid the grant fee of $18 for the land lot.  On May 4, 1832 Needham sold 200 acres of land in Bulloch County to Joseph Hagin; on the same day Joseph Hagin sold to Needham Lee 209 acres and another 119 acres of land where Hagin now lives.   On October 24, 1842 Needham bought 833½ acres from William Lee, Jr. in Bulloch County.  This land was in the Brier Patch District (Militia District 47) which encompassed land east of Brooklet to the Arcola area and south of Brooklet to about Denmark.  His will was filed on December 26, 1882. The grave marker lists him being born 1799 but the 1860 & 1870 census lists him being born 1805.  Needham Lee paid the common school fund in 1845 for his children, Elizabeth, William N., Mary M., and Kesiah to attend school at Lastingers School in the Brooklet Community.  Needham is buried in Upper Black Creek Primitive Baptist Church cemetery in Brooklet, Georgia. 
m. Susanna Hagin (b. 9-28-1808, d. c1871)
Daughter of John Jesse Jr. and Nancy Cone Hagin, Susannah’s father was born in North Carolina in 1776 and died in Camden County, Georgia in 1822.  He had married Nancy Cone, daughter of William Henry Cone and Keziah Barber, on March 7, 1801 in Bulloch County.  He had signed the petition to the state convention asking that Bulloch County be created from Screven and Bryan Counties in 1803.  Susannah is buried in Upper Black Creek Primitive Baptist Church cemetery in Brooklet, Georgia. The grave marker spells her name Hagan, but the marriage license spells it Hagin.  Susannah’s family also had ties in Oglethorpe County where Needham was raised.  John Hagin, grandfather of Susannah, received head-right lands in the Oglethorpe County area; her aunt Martha Hagin married Allen Parrish in Oglethorpe County.

Samuel Eli Lee (b. 3-17-1842, d. 11-30-1921)
born in Bulloch County, GA, buried in New Hope Primitive Baptist Church cemetery near Hickox, GA.  He was an accomplished fiddler by the time he was 11 years of age and his talent was in great demand at community functions.  He enlisted in the Confederate Army on March 4, 1862 at Camp Davis in Appling County. He was in Company C, 47th Regiment, GA Infantry. He was discharged April 26, 1865 at Greensboro, NC.  Eli applied for a soldier’s pension on September 10, 1913 under the Act of 1910.  His stated value on the application of the property owned November 4, 1908 was 115 acres of land ($403), 11 cattle ($66), household and kitchen furniture ($50), and 10 hogs ($10).  He also stated that he had sold 10 cattle to W. I. Minchew for $120 for supplies since 1908.  The Ordinary’s Certificate for Charlton County for Eli Lee states that his property value for tax in 1908 was $230; in 1909 was $287; and in 1910 was $298.

m. 1) Mrs. Sarah M. Brannen Buckhalter (m. 8-10-1864) – previously married to Peter Buckhalter of Tattnall County on December 2, 1858.  It is presumed that Peter was killed in the Civil War.   After being discharged from the Civil War, Samuel and Sarah moved to Savannah.  The 1870 Census of the City of Savannah shows that 27-year-old Samuel Lee was a dock laborer and that his wife Sarah was 32.  Her occupation was keeping house.  Joseph was also listed as son, age 4.  Some time shortly thereafter Eli moved to Charlton County, Georgia, deserting his wife and young son.
m. 2) Mary E. Douberly (b. 3-28-1847, d. 2-12-1919)
After moving to Charlton County, Eli married Mary E. Douberly (marriage assumed as there are no records to substantiate because the courthouse burned).  According to Census records Eli was 27 and Mary was 22.  The 1900 Census for Charlton County, Georgia states that they married in 1870 and had been married for 30 years.  They lived on land in Charlton County on the Satilla River that was awarded as a head-right grant to her father, William Douberly.  He had received 250 acres on November, 1849 and built a home.  William later deeded part of this land to S. E. Lee.  Mary is buried in New Hope Primitive Baptist Church cemetery near Hickox, GA
