Additional Curator's Note: I regret the need to lock this profile, but there are so many Lees in early Virginia history, with repeating given names, that it is very easy to merge the wrong profiles. Just initiate the merge, I will review it and put it through. Feel free to contact me regarding this profile with any questions you may have. Maria Edmonds-Zediker, curator, 11 May 2011.

New Research on the Wraysbury Deeds by Alan Nicholls. In 1999 I gave a presentation to the Lee Society of Virginia at their AGM concerning the English ancestry of Colonel Richard Lee, the founder of the Virginia Lee family. This presentation was placed on my webpage on 24th May 1999. In that presentation I included evidence that Colonel Richard Lee had signed a series of three indentures relating to a purchase by John Lee of Coton of a property at Wraysbury in Buckinghamshire, England in 1652. Colonel Richard's signature on these deeds had been used by all previous researchers, with other evidence, to show a direct connection between the Lee family of Virginia and the Coton Lee family of Alveley, Shropshire. However since the 1999 presentation my research has revealed evidence using only original contemporary documents that these indentures were in fact signed by Richard Lee, fishmonger, son of Lancelot Lee of Coton. This Richard was the apprentice of John Lee, fishmonger, citizen of London and gentleman. I have shown previously that this John Lee (1600-1682), son of Thomas Lee of Coton (1560-1620) was mistakenly identified as a saddler by all earlier researchers. As I reported in the 1999 presentation the signatures on the Wraysbury deeds seemed to match extremely well with those few other original signatures of Colonel Richard Lee that I had found. He signed himself Rich: Lee in all cases and I found these signatures the most persuasive evidence to authenticate his claim to a Coton ancestry. However this new evidence has overturned those conclusions. The new research is detailed below. The research undertaken since the 1999 presentation has not found the English ancestor of Colonel Richard Lee but it is challenging the fundamental assumptions made by earlier researchers. I am continuing to follow my lines of research and hopefully will carry it through to a successful conclusion. I will post articles on my webpage as I complete each phase of the research. As with all research of this nature there are gains and losses but I view each reversal with a positive attitude that will propel me forward with new knowledge to more gains and, hopefully, less losses.

Jim, I have not done English research on Richard and Henry Lee of York. They were obviously related, probably brothers. Since Richard was born c. 1619, and appears to have been the older, it would appear that Henry was born c. 1620. Since his first child was b. 1645, this fits well. There were several Richard Lees and several Henry Lees on the early emigration records. To my knowledge, no one has proven whence they came or which county they settled in. The first problem in research is that there is no proof that Richard Lee of York was the same person as Col. Richard. The research that has been done has been aimed at the origin of Col. Richard Lee. Two of the most recognized articles are: Article by Wm. Thorndale, National Genealogical Society Qtrly, Dec 1988 Article by Ludwell Lee Montague, Va. Magazine, Jan. 1954. The descendants of Col. Richard have not enthusiastically accepted any of the research done. One of them has recently engaged an English researcher, Alan Nicholls. Nicholls has a web page which you can Google up. Hope this helps. Will send another message on the Henry Lee descendants. Cary Adams

    King and Queen Co, VA
    Information on Dorothy Taylor comes from "Log Cabins to White House" by Brewer. 13 Apr 1745

Dorothy was witness to will of Henry Williams in Richmond Co.,VA. signed as Dorothy Croucher. Dorothy and her brother Thomas were administrators of her husband William Lee's estate. She was left wearing apparel in her mother's will. "Dorothy to have my Coyas" d. 1717, Richmond Co, VA (Source: Amelia Co. Order Book 7, p. 226, Letters of Administration of Estate of William Lee to Dorothy Lee, relict of William Lee on 12/4/1717.).

Documentation from "Log Cabins to White House" by Brewer. On page 275 "On 19 Jan 1668 William and wife Alice acknowledged debt of 250 acres of land to William Heath. On 5 Sep 1668 William and wife Alice sold their plantation to Thomas Adams (Surry Co. records p.54).

From "Log Cabin" book on p.276 it gives William Lee( who married Dorothy Taylor) as one of his children. On p.273, Richard Henry Lee and Anna Constable are given as the parents of William (husband of Alice) but other sources state that Richard Lee's son William did not marry. Other sources say he married and had a daughter Mary who married a Heath and that he left his estate to her -- which was contested by his brother and returned to the Lee family.

There is a William Lee and Mary Lee, witnesses in Richard Jesper's will, dated 1698 in North Farnham Parish, VA. Need to identify them. Dorothy and brother Thomas Taylor were administrators of his estate. They left to William's grandchildren (children of Wm.3rd) the legacy left to him by his grandmother Elizabeth Taylor. Thomas Hanks received 9 lbs 11 shillings 8 pence; Joseph Hanks 2 lbs2 shillings 6 pence; Richard Lee 4 shillings; none was listed for John Lee who had probably died young.

-----------------------------------************************ Edmund Jennings Lee had not found any record of what happened to one son William Lee and blew it off finally saying he appears to have died young. Weelllll sort of. He did die earlier, 1694-5, than other siblings, leaving a 18 year old daughter and three younger minor sons. The daughter Mary had married William Heath at age 15 had two sons, Thomas and Samuel the last being born after his father died. She re married to Bartholomew Schriever who is the villain of this story. He was of age so grabbed the estate and paid out yearly a gentlemans living to the three boys; Wm, John, and Richard. What he paid was far less than the estate could manage; and they deserved more; but it was legally large enough that they could not sue their guardian until ALL of them were of age. The instant the youngest turned 21 they did sue. BUT Not in probate court but common pleas court to recover their inheritance. And not in the original county (Westmoreland) but the county had been split and then re-split in the mean time (at this time it was Surry Co) and worse the judge (a VIP ) did not travel to them he stayed put and they had to come to him in King and Queen County. (This was a MAJOR estate -and why they had a superior judge in a higher court- in todays terms it would be multi millionaire stuff). AND It was 7-8 years out of timeŒ7 -8 years later than expected. Wrong place, wrong time, wrong court, and why E J Lee missed it. Bart and Mary got her furniture and what money he had sequestered (the court knew he had milked estate, said so, but did not bother to try to find where he had squirreled money away--{Bermuda}), just gave Mary HER furniture, and kicked them off land and divided it 3 ways each boy getting roughly 1/3. Bart packed up in high dudgeon and went back to England (assume they stopped at Bermuda where $$ were) - and lived life of rich ex colonial gentleman.

OK first problem solved. This I got from two separate books /people who had done work independently, and I cross-checked just to be sure. (A Weavin' and Log Cabin to White House Next problem William (ii) son Wm (i) and grandson of Co Richard died 1717 (about 13 years after court bruhoo); leaving 4 sons. And I will stick to our line his son Charles b 1706 moved to new land at North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co., Va. Charles moves again dies 1799 at-really near just out of town- Leesburg, Cumberland Co., Va. leaving cash to a son William (others got land) and just down the road, land adjoining Charles is a William Lee that the previous genealogists had assumed was his son. BooBoo! It was a reasonable assumption. Just wrong. Charles died in 1799 Cumberland Co Va and had a son William. There is a William Lee (md Ave Noel) whose land adjoins Charles land so they assume he is the son. Unfortunately they happened to buy adjoining lands at about the same time and they were cousins, but unwarranted assumption as to being his son. Then I found the full name of James Garnett Early Lee b. 23 feb 1777 known as Garnett Lee usually, AND known to be son of William and Ave Noel and that triggered my memory that James Lee had md Mary Clark Garnett and I cross connected Wm and Ave to James Lee and Mary Garnett who also had known son William but unknown what happened to him if we connect Wm and Ave to Charles. To add to the surety I was right, Wm and Ave moved about 1788 to Evington Road Bedford Co Va. just a bit down the road from James and Mary Garnett -- (Ah Ha!)----- so this time making the assumption that the William who was close to James was his son works. James died by the way 1791 Probate Bedford Co Va. With that I was able to disconnect he wrong William (md Ave) and get him to correct papa- and so was left connecting MY William (1738-1808) to Charles. Reason for cash was my William had gone on to Hardy Co Va. (now West Va) at the same time, abt 1760, his father Charles had moved from Richmond Co where he was born (The residual of the original estate was now in Surry Co.-but had been split up so much the land left to Charles was too small to make him well off - or as well off as he wished) then on to Leesburgh in Cumberland Co and so our William had no use for land- he had his own- but hundreds of miles away. SO cash. Oh me oh my long story. I also jumped 4 years work in getting all of the above. I followed Loads of dead ends.

He was successively clerk of the quarter court at Jamestown, Attorney General of Virginia, Secretary of State, and a member of the council.
