About Humphrey de Lee

LEE Family Lineage according to Burke's Peerage:

The Lee Family of Stanton, Roden and afterwards of Langley and Coton Hall, Shropshire, is stated in Burke's Baronetcies to be ONE of the oldest in England. Eyton's treating of Reyner de la Lee about 1195 gives also an unbroken descent through the Stantons, of Stanton Hineheath from 1086 to 1173-4. Begins with HUGO DE LEGA, 1100, whose son; Reginald de la Lee is identified with the above. He was Sheriff in 1201 and one of the knights known as REINER DE LEGA at the assizes October 1203. He received a grant of land from William, son of William FitzAlan and according to the pedigree had a son; Sir John de la Lee, but evidence produced by Eyton and Sir William Hardy, late Keeper of the Records in the Duchy of Lancaster, shows that Reyner's son was really,… Sir Thomas de la Lee, given as his grandson in the pedigree. He married Petronilla, daughter of Sir Thomas Corbet, Sheriff, in time of King Henry 3rd of England (king from 1266-1272}. Sir Thomas de la Lee had THREE sons:

  • a. Sir John de la Lee;
  • b. Reyner or Reginaldde la Lee, to whom he gave the V. of Lee, Pevenhull 7c, and
  • c. Thomas de laLee, this latter married Petronilla de Stanton and had a SON: SIR JOHN DE LA LEE, (stated as being a nephew of a Sir John de la Lee of Stanton, & Roden), married Matilda de Erdington and had (with a daughter, Matilda), two (2) sons:
    • (a) Sir John de la Lee, succeeded by his son John, (immediately below) and
    • (b) Thomas de la Lee of Okehurst.

Sir John de Lee, who is shown by Eyton to have been succeeded by HIS son, Sir John de Lee, who was succeeded by HIS son, Sir Robert de Lee * of Roden (b. 1392). Robert Lee (b. 1392) married Petronilla, a daughter of Roger Lee of Pimhill, by his wife, Joan, daughter of and heir of Edward Burnell of Aston Burnell, and Langley and was succeeded by HIS son: Sir Ralph de Lee of Lee Hall, Langley Aston, Burnell, 1447. He married first Isabella, and second Isabella, a daughter of James Ridley, and died December 14, 1479. Sir Ralph was succeeded by HIS son: Sir Richard de Lee of Langley and married Margaret, daughter and heiress of Sir Fulke Sprenchose and had five sons and two daughters. He was succeeded by HIS 2 sons: Sir Fulke Lee** of Langley; married Alice, daughter of Sir Richard Cromwell, and secondly Elizabeth, daughter of John Leighton. He was succeeded by HIS son ** [Thomas was Fulke's brother, not his son, Burke is in error here] and heir: Sir Thomas Lee of Langley and he married Jane, daughter of Sir Robert Morton and had five sons and seven daughters. He, Sir Richard Lee, died in 1591 and was succeeded by HIS oldest son: Sir Richard Lee of Langley, who married Eleanor, daughter of Walter Wrottesley and had four sons and six daughters.

   ================================================
   Return, please, to (b) THOMAS DE LA LEE of Okehurst. Records of the
   second visitation make him the father of: Roger Lee, who had a son; Roger
   Lee who married Margaret, sister and heiress of Thomas Astley of Nordley,
   whose descent is given by Eyton from the time of King Henry First of
   England (b. 1068-1135) king from 1100-1135, the youngest and only
   "ENGLISH-BORN SON OF WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR according to tradition, at
   Selby, Yorkshire. The first visitation shows that RogerLee, Margaret's
   husband, was of the Second House, and it is probable that hewas a son,
   and not a grandson, to THOMAS LEE OF OKEHURST, who died about 1419 and
   was succeeded by HIS son: John Lee. *Robert Lee (b. 1392) was another
   son.
   Robert Lee (b. 1392) married Petronilla, a daughter of Roger Lee of
   Pimhill, by his wife, Joan, daughter of and heir of Edward Burnell of
   Aston Burnell, and Langley and was succeeded by HIS son:
