DITCHLEY, outside the town of Kilmarnock, was built by Kendall Lee around 1762 on property owned by his ancestor, Richard Lee (1618 - 1664). At Lee's death his property was inherited by three of his five sons. Hancock Lee (1653 - 1709) inherited the southern portion of his father's land and built a house sometime after 1688. Hancock's son, Richard Lee II, named the property Ditchley and his son, Kendall Lee (Abt. 1728 - Living 1762), built the present house around 1762. It was sold by Kendall's son, William Lee, to his nephew, James Ball and the property remained in the Ball family for years. In 1932 Ditchley, Inc., a corporation formed by Alfred I. duPont of Wilmington, Delaware, and his wife Jessie Dew Ball (1884-1970) of Northumberland County, acquired the house and 63 acres. As of 2010 Ditchley is maintained by the Jessie Ball duPont Trust for the use of her Virginia relatives.
