In 1988 William Thorndale (National Genealogical Society Quarterly, 76-4, pp 253-267) established, apparently beyond question, the parentage of the emigrant, Col. Richard Lee, which had been sought off and on for more than two hundred years. He had been christened 22 March 1617/8 at St. Martins Parish in the city of Worcester, the son of John Lee (sometimes Lees or Leys) (1590-1629/30), a member of the Clothiers' Company (i.e., manufacturers of woolen cloth) and Jane Hancock, his wife.

Subsequently, Thomas Woodcock, Somerset Herald at the College of Arms, was engaged by David Halle (Genealogist of the Society of the Lees of Virginia at the time) to try to find further confirmation of this deduction. Although failing in this, Mr. Woodcock did develop the strong probability that this John Lee (1590-1629/30) was the son of an earlier John Lees (ca.1566-1597), weaver, of Worcester. Mr. Thorndale generously supplied evidence to establish this parentage with certainty, and Dr. Neil Thompson then further confirmed it.

Col. Montague's understanding of Col. Richard Lee's English origin was based in part on heraldic considerations, but also in greater part on accepting, as had the Lee Society and the College of Arms for many years, the authenticity of the so-called "Cobbs Hall Bible record," now long known to have been a 1920's fabrication. His remarks about Col. Richard Lee's English origin and connection with a John Lee of London must now be disregarded in view of these more recent discoveries.


Children of JOHN LEE and JANE HANCOCK are:
i. THOMAS3 LEE.
ii. JOHN LEE, b. Sep 1616.
3. iii. RICHARD LEE, (THE FOUNDER), b. 1608, Shorpshire, England; d. 01 Mar 1663/64, Cobb's Hall, Dividing Creek VA.


Generation No. 3

3. RICHARD3 LEE, (THE FOUNDER) (JOHN2, JOHN1) was born 1608 in Shorpshire, England, and died 01 Mar 1663/64 in Cobb's Hall, Dividing Creek VA. He married ANNE CONSTABLE, (OWEN) 1641 in Jamestown, VA, daughter of FRANCIS CONSTABLE. She was born 1622 in England, and died Aft. 1663 in VA.

Notes for RICHARD LEE, (THE FOUNDER):
- Col. Richard Lee
- 2nd oldest in his family
- Born - Coton Hall in manor of Nordley Regis, England
- Came to America from England by 1636 (York Co Records by Fleet, Vol I,p92 - Thomas Davis of Warwicksquack Co, later became Isle os Wight 1637, to Ambrose Meador and John White of Pagan Shore, 50, 18 Jul 1636. Wit Thomas Holt and Richard Lee).

Richard was from Shropshire, a county bordering Wales and Located about 100 miles northwest of London. Christened 3/22/1618. After his cousin John brought him down from Shropshire to learn the ways of London, Richard sailed for Virginia. This was shortly after his mothers death and 21st birthday.

Richard arrived in VA about 1639. He began life in the colony as clerk of the quarter court, within the Secretary of state's office. His close affiliation with Sir William explains Richard Lee's progress as a public figure. He was a member of the House of Burgesses, high Sheriff, Colonel in the militia, secretary of state and was named in 1651 to the Council of State.

Richard not only profited from his public office but also by trading with the Indians for fur and skins. He moved from one triumph to another, taking care that his early land patents designated him as "gentleman". At the end of his life he held high office & owned about 15,000 productive acres in VA & MD. His plantation was called Paradise. He also had many slaves and much livestock.

Richard made survival & prosperity his concerns, which bequeathed comfort, power, and wealth to his children and grandchildren. On his death he was one of the wealthiest and most influential citizens of Virginia.

Richard Lee came to Virginia before November 26, 1636, in company with the new governor, Sir Francis Wiatt, to be clerk of the Quarter Court at Jamestown. Not long thereafter he married the Governor's ward, Anne Constable. Subsequently he was Attorney General and colonial Secretary of State under Sir William Berkeley. In addition to these occupations, he was, from his first arrival in Virginia, actively engaged in the Indian trade, trading for furs as a factor for his cousin, John Lee of London.

Richard Lee's first home in Virginia was on leased land near Gloucester Point. He was driven from it by the Great Massacre of 1644. He and his trading shallops were actively employed in the ensuing military operations against the Indians on York River, but he still found time for Indian trade. Unable to deal with the York River tribes, be sought our those of the Northern Neck, who were still at peace with the English.

Although Richard Lee had been steadily patenting land since 1642, he did not become a planter until 1652 when , a 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 operation as a London merchant trading in Virginia.

It has been supposed the Richard Lee established his residence on Dividing Creek in 1651, but the supposition is contradicted by the evidence which has subsequently come to light. Considering the dates at which he is known to have been at Jamestown, in Gloucester, or in London, he cannot have settled here until the spring of 1656. His tenth and last child, Charles Lee, was born here in May of that year. The original Lee home here until the spring of 1656. His tenth and last child, Charles Lee, was born here in May of that year. The original Lee home here stood near were you turned from the 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. There he purchased an estate in suburban Stratford, with the intention of making it his home. His purposes seem to have been the better management of his mercantile business in London and the better education of his children.

In the fall of 1659 Richard Lee returned from London to put his affairs in Virginia in charge of a steward and to move his family to their new home at Stratford. The notes left by this steward, John Gibbon, show that the Indians were then still a conspicuous feature of the local scene. The future herald was much impressed by Indian royalty: not only the neighboring King of Wicomico, but also the King of Chicacoan, who came to visit the Lees on Dividing Creek, the King of Chiskiak, who lived near Lee's Paradise plantation in Gloucester, and the famous Queen of Pamunkey, met in the course of an introduction to the fur trade on York River.

In February 1661, after five years in residence on Dividing Creek, the Lee family moved, bag and baggage, to its new home in England. 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. He was buried here, in the garden of his last Virginia home.

In accordance with his will, Richard Lee's family returned to Virginia. His widow lived here with her second husband, Edmund Lister, and the younger children. Eventually the youngest, Charles Lee, inherited this place. It was his son, Charles, who abandoned the original Lee home and built the first Cobbs Hall, about 1720. However, the Cobbs Hall family continued to use the only burying ground in the garden of the older home. In 1761 Leeanna Lee caused an enclosing wall to be erected. She was not only the widow of Charles Lee III, but was herself a great-granddaughter of Richard Lee and Anna Constable. The wall you see before you was built where the foundations of her wall were found.

Generation No. 4

4. RICHARD4 LEE, (THE SCHOLAR) (RICHARD3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born 1647, and died 12 Mar 1714/15 in buried at Mt. Pleasant, Westmoreland Co., VA. He married LAETITIA CORBIN ABT 1674, daughter of HENRY CORBIN and ALICE ELTONHEAD. She was born 1657, and died 06 Oct 1706 in buried at Mt. Pleasant, Westmoreland Co., VA.

Notes for RICHARD LEE, (THE SCHOLAR):
Richard Lee was known as "The Scholar". He was a student in England, presumably at Oxford, in the year 1664. In 1673, he became head of the Lee clan and owner of John's Machodoc Creek property in Westmoreland County, after his father's death.
Wife was 10 years his junior.
After he married, Richard was elected by his neighbors to the House of Burgesses. In 1676, he was named to the highest governing body in VA, the Council of State (State Senate). He found himself tested after arriving in Jamestown when nothing less than civil war broke out, led by Nathaniel Bacon. There was much controversy between Bacon and Richard especially when Bacon had imprisoned the Scholar.
In the 1670's, Virgina began a transformation which persons like Richard the Scholar feared would corrupt society. His fight against progress may explain why Richard disappointed his descendants.
Richard Lee is the most misunderstood and underappreciated member of the Lee clan. Many of Richard's descendents (in his opinion) nearly ruined their lives by pursuing money. Richard spent most of his life in study. He was at least as courageous as his father although his family did not see this. He was also known for his honesty.
Richard's epitaph was appropriately understood. It noted whenever Richard Lee had served in office, "he was a zealous promoter of the public good." It went on to note that he was very skillfull in the Greek and Latin languages and other parts of polite learning.

She was born 05 Dec 1701 in "Rick Neck", Bruton Parish, James City, and died 25 Jan 1748/49 in "Stratford", buried "Burnt House Fields", Mt Pleasant..

Notes for THOMAS LEE:
Founder of the Ohio Company, a member of the governing Council of the colony, & acting governor of Virginia. In 1717, he purchased 1433 acres for Stratford Hall Plantation and, in the late 1730's, began building the brick Georgian Great House. A successful tobacco planter and land speculator, he owned more than 16,000 acres in VA and MD. In 1732, Thomas was named to His Majest's Council. President and Commander in Chief of the colony. Owned "Machodoc" estate.

Estate was known as Machodoc which was set on fire by imigrant felons from England who had been sternly treated by Thomas as a magistrate. Later he built Stratford starting in1738. It was 4800 acres at Thomas & Hannah's death.

Thomas was the son of Richard the Scholar. By the manner in which he combined materialist & political zeal, he would be a reincarnation of his grandfather, Richard the Founder.

While many familys suffered from a continuing depression in tobacco prices, Thomas was not limited to the modest agricultural revenue from lands his father bequeathed him, but drew a measure of wealth through the navel office and the Proprietary.

"President" Thomas Lee

Thomas, the fifth son of Richard Lee and Laetitia Corbin, his wife, was born at "Mt. Pleasant," in Westmoreland county, in 1690; died at "Stratford," in same county, on the 14th of November, 1750. Of his early days his son has written: "Thomas, the fourth son, though with none but a common Virginia Education, yet having strong natural parts, long after he was a man, he learned the Languages without any assistance but his own genius, and became a tolerable adept in Greek and Latin..... This Thomas, by his Industry and Parts, acquired a considerable Fortune; for, being a younger Brother, with many children, his Paternal Estate was very Small. He was also appointed of the Council, and though he had very few acquaintances in England, he was so well known by reputation that upon his receiving a loss by fire, the late Queen Caroline sent him over a bountiful present out of her own Privy Purse. Upon the late Sir William Gooch's being recalled, who had been Governor of Virginia, he became President and Commander in Chief over the Colony, in which station he continued for some time, 'til the King thought proper to appoint him Governor of the Colony, but he dyed in 1750 before his commission got over to him."

That Thomas Lee possessed "strong natural parts" seems well attested by the important positions confided to him during en epoch in which the Colony was strong in men of marked ability. Besides being for many years a member of the House of Burgesses, a member of the Council and later its president, he became after the death of John Robinson, on the 5th of September, 1749, the acting Governor of the Colony, and held that position until his death. He served also upon various commissions for arranging boundaries, for making treaties with the Indians, and held other similar positons of trust and responsibility.

In May, 1744, Thomas Lee and William Beverley were appointed by the Governor his commissioners to treat with the Iroquois Indians for the settlement of lands west of the Alleghany Mountains.

Though Thomas Lee may have been a person of some influence in his day, he is known rather for his many distinguished sons than for his own individual merit. For it has seldom fallen to the lot of any man to rear six sons who took an active and patriotic part in the service of their country, at least four of whom were distinguished for their unselfish patriotism during the Revolutionary struggle.

Thomas Lee was married, in May, 1722, to Hannah, second daughter of Colonel Philip Ludwell, of Greenspring, James City county, an associate of the Council. She was born at "Rich Neck," in Bruton parish, James City county, the 5th of December, 1701; died at Stratford, 25th of January, 1749, and was buried in the old family burying-ground, called the "Burnt House Fields," at Mt. Pleasant. Her tombstone is now to be seen at Stratford, whither it was removed for preservation, probably by General Henry Lee, who built the new vault at that place.

Where Thomas Lee lived during the first years of his married life is a matter of some doubt. It seems most probable that his first home was at "Mt. Pleasant," and that the loss by fire, of which his son William wrote, was the destruction of the mansion. It is certain that the house at "Mt. Pleasant" was burned early in the last century, but there is no evidence of a fire ever having occurred at stratford. If Queen Caroline gave Thomas Lee a "bountiful present out of her own privy purse," while she was Queen, she must have given it between 1727 and 1737, as she became a Queen in the former year and died in the latter. As Princess of Wales, she would hardly have possessed sufficient means to make a large present. It seems, therefore, highly probable that the Stratford house was erected about 1725-30, hardly later, as it is said that all of Thomas Lee's sons were born in that mansion.

An old mansion has been declared to be a history in itself; its rooms being the chapters; its stories, volumes; its furniture, illustrations, and its inmates the characters. Such a mansion is certainly an illustration of the customs, habits, and mode of life of the period in which it was built and inhabited. And this thought seems to be applicable to Stratford for many reasons. Since it was erected upon the banks of the historic Potomac, American history has been made, and some prominent actors in that history were born under its roof. At the time of its building, the American Colonies were few in number, and weak in strength, hardly able to defend their homes from the marauding Indian. Spotswood and his daring followers had only recently crossed "the Great Mountains," and looked upon the beautiful valley of Virginia. The imagination of to-day can hardly realize venture, and the suggestion of such an idea seems a joke. "Early in his administration," writes Howe, "Spotswood, at the head of a troop of horse, effected a passage over the Blue Ridge, which had previously been considered an impenetrable barrier to the ambition of the whites, and discovered the beautiful valley which lies beyond. In commemoration of the event, he received from the king the honor of knighthood, and was presented with a miniature golden horse-shoe, on which was inscribed the motto, Sic jurat transcendere montes -- Thus he swears to cross the mountains." Since that time a new nation has been born and grown to manhood; from infantile dimension, a narrow strip of inhabited land, hugging the Atlantic as if afraid to loosen its hold on the mother country, its habitation have extednded from ocean to ocean, from the great lakes to the gulf. The war of the Revolution, whith its heroes and patriots, has come and gone. All these changes has Stratford witnessed, yet it remains to-day solid and strong, a monument of the past age in which it was erected, and had it no other claim to distinction, it might surely rank as one of America's historic mansions. But it possesses much greater claims that mere age; as the birthplace of two signers of the Declaration of Independence, and of two others who represented their country at the courts of Europe, during the earlier years of the struggle, it is hallowed by memories which no other mansion in America can share. There, too, on the 19th of Janurary, 1807, was born Robert Edward Lee, an event well worthy of being the last act in the great drama, of which stratford has been the stage.

Stratford house, with its solid walls and massive, rough-hewn timbers, seems rather to represent strength and solidity than elegance or comfort. Its large rooms, with numerous doors and windows, heated only by the large open fireplaces, would to-day scarcely be considered habitable. Nor would the modern housewife care to have her kitchen placed out in the yard some fifty or sixty feet from her dining room. The house was built in the shape of the letter H, the cross line being a large hall room of some twenty-five by thirty feet, serving as the connecting link between the two wings; these wings are about thirty feet wide by sixty deep. The house contains some eighteen large rooms, exclusive of the hall. The ceiling is very high, dome shaped, the walls are panelled in oak, with book cases set in them; back and front are doors, leading into the garden, flanked on either side by windows, as shown in the illustration. On the other two sides of this hall, between the book cases, are two doors, opening into the wings. Outside, at the four corners of the house, are four out-houses, used as storehouses, office, kitchen, and such like purposes. At the corner of the house was the kitchen, with its immense fireplace, which by actual measurement was found to be twelve feet wide, six high, and five deep, evidently capable of roasting a fair-sized ox. Lying on the grass, there is seen a large, old fashioned shell or cannon ball, which tradition says was once fired at the house by the English warship. In recent years it has served the more useful purpose of a hitching block for horses.

The portions of the stable yet remaining show it to have been very large; the kitchen garden was surronded by the usual brick wall, much remaining at the present time. At the foot of the kitchen garden are the remains of the large brick burial vault, of which Bishop Meade wrote; "I have been assured by Mrs. Eliza Turner, who was there at the time, that it was built by General Henry Lee. The cemetery (vault) is much larger than any other in the Northern Neck, consisting of several apartments or alcoves for different branches of the family. Instead of an arch over them there is a brick house, perhaps twenty feet square, covered in. A floor covers the cemetery. In the center is a trap door, through which you descend by a ladder to the apartments below." This brick house having fallen into ruin, a late proprietor of Stratford had it torn down and the bricks heaped up into a mound, which, covered with earth and surmounted by the tombstone of Thomas Lee, would serve as a fitting mark for the unknown dead reposing underneath.

There has been some uncertainty as to the burial place of both Thomas Lee and his son, Richard Henry; the former has always been thought to have been buried at Old Pope's Creek church, and the latter at Chantilly. But an examination of their wills and other data proves most conclusively that both of them were buried in "the Old Burnt House Fields," at "Mt. Pleasant." It requires no proof to show that Richard Lee and Laetitia Corbin, his wife, were buried at this place, as their tombstone is still to be seen there. Thomas Lee's wife died about a year before her husband, and of course had been duly buried; in his will he desired to be "buried between my Late Dearest wife and my Honoured Mother, and that the bricks on the side next my wife may be moved and my coffin placed as near hers as it possible, without moving or disturbing the remains of my Mother." This request proves his wife had been buried very near the grave of his mother. There can be no doubt that Thomas Lee was buried, as he desired, beside his wife, for one slab covered the two graves.

No one can well doubt that the "family burying place" was in the old Burnt House Fields, at "Mt. Pleasant." This was the "one acre where my Hon'd Father is Buryed" that Thomas Lee, in his will, desired should not "be disposed of upon any pretense whatsoever." It was the "family burying place at the burnt House, as it is called," where Richard Henry Lee desired to be buried.

Thomas and Hannah (Ludwell) Lee had the following issue; names and dates were copied from the family Bible of Richard Henry Lee, who stated he had copied from that of his father at Stratford:

i, Richard, born 17 June, 1723; died unmarried, before his father.
ii, Philip Ludwell
iii, Hannah, born 6 February, 1728; married Gawin Corbin (who died prior to 1760) and left a daughter, Martha, who married George Richard Turberville. Philip Ludwell Lee, writing to his brother William, under date of 31 May, 1769, said; "Tomorrow Patty Corbin and George Turnberville are to be married." They had two sons: Gawin Corbin and Richard Lee; the latter married his cousin, Henrietta, daughter of Richard Henry Lee, and left issue
iv, John, born 28 March, 1729, and died the same day.
v, Lucy, born 26 September, 1750, and died unmarried.
vi, Thomas Ludwell
vii, Richard Henry
viii, Francis Lightfoot
ix, Alice, born the 4th of June, 1736, at Stratford; died at Philadelphia, on the 25th of March, 1817; married at London, in 1760, Dr. William Shippen, Jr., and had several children, only two of whom lived to marry. They were: I. Anne Hume, born in 1763; died at Philadelphia, the 23rd of August, 1841, 78 years; she married, on the 11th of March, 1781, Col. Henry Beekman Livingston, son of Robert R. Livingston, Sr., of Clermont, NY; they had a daughter, Margaret Beekman, who died unmarried. 2. Thomas Lee Shippen, born in 1765; died near Charleston, S.C., on the 4th of February, 1798; he married, at "Nesting," VA, on the 10th of March, 1791, Mrs. Elizabeth (Farley) Bennister, the widow of John Bannister, Jr., of Virginia.
x, William
xi, Arthur


It is not possible for Lucy to have been born Sept. 26, 1750 as they state in the Family Bible because her mother died January 25, 1748/49.

Notes for HANNAH HARRISON LUDWELL:


Hannah Harrison Ludwell was born in 1701. When she was only eleven years old Thomas Lee's junior, Hannah was one of the colony's greatest heiresses. They were wed in May 1722. Hannah's impressive inheritance from her grandfather was brought to the wedding. According to a solemn agreement signed by Thomas, the money was to be returned to Hannah if she became a widow.
Hannah was known for her strong personality which was sofened only slightly by her musical talent.

When Thomas and Hannah were asleep in January of 1729, theives crept into the building taking family treasures and set fire to the place. Thomas, Hannah, and their children leaped from the second floor window causing Hannah to miscarry a child.

Hannah was relatively young at her death, being only forty-nine on 25th of January 1750. Her grave is in Burnt House Field.

Notes for ARTHUR LEE:
REF: Family Bible - He was active in English politics, but was appointed as the Continental Congress' secret agent in London before the Revolution began

This came from the book, "Shaping a Nation: Stories of the Lees", by Ludwell Lee Montague

In 1819 old John Adams wrote as follows of the man whom we commenmorate here today:

Arthur Lee, a man of whom I cannot think without emotion; a man to early in service of his country to avoid making a multiplicity of enemies; too honest, upright, faithful, and intrepid to be popular; too often obliged by his principles and feelings to oppose Machiavellian intrigues, to avoid the destiny he suffered. this man never had justice done him by his country in his lifetime and I fear he never will have by posterity.

When I have done, you will understand the human tragedy indicated by that passage.

Arthur Lee was born at Stratford in December 1740. He was the youngest, and the most brilliant, of the eight surviving children of Thomas Lee and Hannah Ludwell. His parents both died when he was only nine, but Philip Ludwell Lee, his eldest brother, gave him far more education than any of his brothers received.

In 1764 Arthur Lee graduated from the University of Edinburgh, a doctor of medicine, but continued his stay in England for two more years. It took a stern letter from Richard Henry Lee to recall him to his duty to America.

In 1768 he returned to England as a correspondent in London with full approval of his brother. His immediate purpose was to supply his correspondents in America with political intelligence from London. His political activity in England took several forms:

(1) He kept leaders of the Opposition in Parliament fully informedd of the growing opposition in America.
(2) He haunted the lobbies of Parliament himself, arguing for accommodation with America as necessary for the protection of such British interests as those of the merchants trading to America. In this he was aided by his brother William, who was established in London as a merchant trading to Virginia.
(3) He joined the Society of the Supporters of the Bill of Rights, an organization formed to express the grievances of the City of London and County of Middlesex against the conduct of the Tory Ministry. Soon Bill of Rights progaganda began to include the grievances of America as well as those of London and Middlesex.
(4) He attacked the Ministry directly in a series of pamphlets signed "Junius Americanus." At that time the Ministry was signed himself "Junius." His identity is unknown even today, but he sent messages of approval and encouragement to his American namesake.

In 1770 he entered the Inns of Court after deciding a better acquaintance with English law would be of advantage to him as a political propagandist. He was not admitted to the bar until April 1775 since he was not exclusively devoted to study or to political agitation.

Arthur Lee was one to be recognized as part of the achievement of American independence.
In 1790 Arthur Lee turned over to Alexander Hamilton the empty treasury of the Confederation and retired from public life. In 1791 he purchased a mansion at Urbanna which had thousands of acres attached to it He named the place Lansdowne. He was no farmer but an expert botanist. Pushing himself to far, in inclement weather, working on his projects, in December 1792 he contracted pleurisy and died, at the age of 52.

Rich in Spirit
Robert E. Lee started life with little, and he, left it-after great glory- the same. Lee's father, Henry (Light-Horse Harry) Lee, was imprisoned for debt in 1809. He had had a brilliant cavalry career in the Revolutionary War, but he failed to fit into postwar life; true, he rose to become Governor of Virginia, but he squandered his inheritance on get-rich-quick land speculations.
Light-Horse Harry Lee had married a cousin, Matilda, who had inherited the vast estate of Stratford Hall from her father. They had four children. When Matilda died in 1790, she left the estate in trust for her children, no doubt to save it from her husband's creditors. Three years later, at 37, Light-Horse Harry married Anne Hill Carter, the 20 year-old daughter of Charles Carter. The Carter estates were said to be nearly as vast as George Washington's.

Words for a Hero
Light-Horse Harry brought his young wife to Stratford Hall, settled down for a while and was elected to Congress. There, upon the death of Washington, he eulogized his hero as "First in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen."
On Jan. 19, 1807, Lee's second wife gave birth to her fourth child, Robert Edward Lee. He was destined to become the most famous of all the many Lees of Virginia.
Lee was born in what today is called the "Mothers' Room." It is on the east side of the mansion, on the main floor. In this same room, it is said, were born two earlier Lees, Richard Henry, and Francis Lightfoot Lee, the only two brothers to sign the Declaration of Independence.
When Robert E Lee was 16 months old his half-brother Henry reached the age of 21 and thereupon became the lawful owner of Stratford Hall under the terms of his mother's will. From that day on, Light Horse Harry, his second wife and their four children became nonpaying guests, desperate for money. Everything they could sell-tracts of land, carriages, etc. was sold.
Anne Lee could not help, because her father had put her inheritance in trust. Like Matilda, old Mr. Carter had no confidence in Harry's ability to handle money. Then came to final blow: On April 11, 1809, when Robert was 2 years old his father was arrested for debt and hauled off to jail for a year.
In the summer of 1810, Light-Horse Harry and his family left Stratford Hall and moved to a small brick house on Cameron Street in Alexandria, VA. From then on Robert E Lee was to live in many places between Stratford Hall, Arlington and his final resting place at Lexington..

39. RICHARD HENRY6 LEE (THOMAS5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born 20 Jan 1731/32 in Stratford Westmorland County VA, and died 19 Jun 1794 in Chantilly, VA buried Burnt House burying ground. He married (1) ANNE AYLETT 03 Dec 1759, daughter of WILLIAM AYLET and ELIZABETH ESKRIDGE. She was born 1738, and died 12 Dec 1768. He married (2) ANNE GASKINS Jul 1768, daughter of THOMAS GASKINS and SARAH EUSTACE. She died 1796.

Notes for RICHARD HENRY LEE:
Richard Henry, the fifth son of Thomas Lee and Hannah Ludwell, his wife, was born at Stratford, Westmoreland county, the 20th of January, 1732, and died at his home, Chantilly, in the same county, on the 19th of June, 1794.

After he had completed his education in England he entered Virginia politics at age twenty-six. It was in 1757 that he made his first appearance in the political arena by being chosen a member of the house of Burgesses. Richard Henry Lee had been one of the earliest to talk against English misrule, even though his family had thrived for more than a century under the empire.

Also in 1757 he married Anne Aylett. They chose to live in Westmoreland County instead of upriver to the property he inherited. Richard Henry's tastes ran more to books and politics than to managing an isolated farm.

In 1759 Richard Henry uttered indignant remarks that have heen called the most extreme anti-slavery statement made before the 19th century. He stressed that blacks were "equally entitled to liberty and freedom by the great law of nature." Soon, when Richard Henry made a spectacular blunder, he found his earlier tactics left him little sympathy across Virginia.

In 1764, just as Richard Henry was seeking to topple John Robinson who was speaker of the House of Burgeses, his own ambition and greed betrayed him. Although he hastened to apply for the position under the Stamp Act, he lost it to George Mercer, whose family was allied with Speaker Robinson.

In 1774 Richard Henry and John Adam's were introduced at his sister, Alice Lee Shippen's house. At the time it was unaware that a partnership would be instrumental in bringing about America's independence.

On June 7, 1776 Richard Henry Lee arose in Congress to offer the motion for American Independence. It was seconeded by John Adams. Affairs became sour for the Lee family at once. Because of Richard Henry's temper, the congress excluded him from the committee created to announce the separation from England. This is when Thomas Jefferson earned fame for penning the Declaration of Independence and Richard Henry's motion had been forgotten.

Mr. Lee continued to serve in Congress for many years and was one of the signers of the articles of confederation in 1778. After many years of active service in Congress, and all the while a member of the Virginia Assembly, he finally, in 1792, retired from public life. Both branches of the Virginia assembly gave him a vote of thanks for his patriotic services.

Mr. Lee died two years after retiring from public life; his constitution had been enfeebled by his long and arduous labors. He had great suffering, but, though his body had become feeble, his mind retained its vigor. He died at Chantilly on the 19th of June, 1794, and was buried in the old family burial-place, at the "Burnt House Fields," Mt. Pleasant, as he desired in his will.


Ref: Family Bible.
He was chosen as a member of the First Continental congress in 1774 and a member of the committee to frame the Declaration of Independance. Along with his brother, Francis Lightfoot Lee, he signed the Declaration of Indepencence. He wore a piece of black silk over his left hand as he was missing the fingers except for the thumb, due to a hunting accident.

Notes for HENRY (LIGHTHORSE HARRY) LEE III:
General

Graduated Princeton 1773 at age17

Rich in Spirit
Robert E. Lee started life with little, and he, left it-after great glory- the same. Lee's father, Henry (Light-Horse Harry) Lee, was imprisoned for debt in 1809. He had had a brilliant cavalry career in the Revolutionary War, but he failed to fit into postwar life; true, he rose to become Governor of Virginia, but he squandered his inheritance on get-rich-quick land speculations.
Light-Horse Harry Lee had married a cousin, Matilda, who had inherited the vast estate of Stratford Hall from her father. They had four children. When Matilda died in 1790, she left the estate in trust for her children, no doubt to save it from her husband's creditors. Three years later, at 37, Light-Horse Harry married Anne Hill Carter, the 20 year-old daughter of Charles Carter. The Carter estates were said to be nearly as vast as George Washington's.

Words for a Hero
Light-Horse Harry brought his young wife to Stratford Hall, settled down for a while and was elected to Congress. There, upon the death of Washington, he eulogized his hero as "First in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen."
On Jan. 19, 1807, Lee's second wife gave birth to her fourth child, Robert Edward Lee. He was destined to become the most famous of all the many Lees of Virginia.
Lee was born in what today is called the "Mothers' Room." It is on the east side of the mansion, on the main floor. In this same room, it is said, were born two earlier Lees, Richard Henry, and Francis Lightfoot Lee, the only two brothers to sign the Declaration of Independence.
When Robert E Lee was 16 months old his half-brother Henry reached the age of 21 and thereupon became the lawful owner of Stratford Hall under the terms of his mother's will. From that day on, Light Horse Harry, his second wife and their four children became nonpaying guests, desperate for money. Everything they could sell-tracts of land, carriages, etc. was sold.
Anne Lee could not help, because her father had put her inheritance in trust. Like Matilda, old Mr. Carter had no confidence in Harry's ability to handle money. Then came to final blow: On April 11, 1809, when Robert was 2 years old his father was arrested for debt and hauled off to jail for a year.
In the summer of 1810, Light-Horse Harry and his family left Stratford Hall and moved to a small brick house on Cameron Street in Alexandria, VA. From then on Robert E Lee was to live in many places between Stratford Hall, Arlington and his final resting place at Lexington..

Edmond Jennings Lee was born on May 20, 1772, as the fifth son of Henry Lee II and Lucy Grymes his wife at LEESYLVANIA. He married Sarah Lee and together they had nine children. On the 30th of May, 1843, Mr. Lee died at his home in Alexandria.
In early life he became a member of the Episcopal Church. He became deeply interested in the cause of religion in general, as in that of his own church. Edmond Jennings was an active layman and his name was among the prominent as a member of Diocesan and General Convention, trustee of Education Society, vestryman and delegate of Christ Church, and a member of Standing Committee.
Mr. Lee's undertaking, successfully carried out, to resist and defeat the execution of the confiscation act in regard to church property. His presevering devotion and legal ability helped him fight many other arguments and win. For example, the 'Bishop's fund' existence today is entirely due to Mr. Lee.
Mr. Lee was for several years the Mayor of Alexanderia, and took special pains to enforce the proper observance of the Sabbath. As in public, so in private, he insisted on this duty.

Notes for ANNE GASKINS:

Notes for RICHARD HENRY LEE:
Richard Henry, the fifth son of Thomas Lee and Hannah Ludwell, his wife, was born at Stratford, Westmoreland county, the 20th of January, 1732, and died at his home, Chantilly, in the same county, on the 19th of June, 1794.

After he had completed his education in England he entered Virginia politics at age twenty-six. It was in 1757 that he made his first appearance in the political arena by being chosen a member of the house of Burgesses. Richard Henry Lee had been one of the earliest to talk against English misrule, even though his family had thrived for more than a century under the empire.

Also in 1757 he married Anne Aylett. They chose to live in Westmoreland County instead of upriver to the property he inherited. Richard Henry's tastes ran more to books and politics than to managing an isolated farm.

In 1759 Richard Henry uttered indignant remarks that have heen called the most extreme anti-slavery statement made before the 19th century. He stressed that blacks were "equally entitled to liberty and freedom by the great law of nature." Soon, when Richard Henry made a spectacular blunder, he found his earlier tactics left him little sympathy across Virginia.

In 1764, just as Richard Henry was seeking to topple John Robinson who was speaker of the House of Burgeses, his own ambition and greed betrayed him. Although he hastened to apply for the position under the Stamp Act, he lost it to George Mercer, whose family was allied with Speaker Robinson.

In 1774 Richard Henry and John Adam's were introduced at his sister, Alice Lee Shippen's house. At the time it was unaware that a partnership would be instrumental in bringing about America's independence.

On June 7, 1776 Richard Henry Lee arose in Congress to offer the motion for American Independence. It was seconeded by John Adams. Affairs became sour for the Lee family at once. Because of Richard Henry's temper, the congress excluded him from the committee created to announce the separation from England. This is when Thomas Jefferson earned fame for penning the Declaration of Independence and Richard Henry's motion had been forgotten.

Mr. Lee continued to serve in Congress for many years and was one of the signers of the articles of confederation in 1778. After many years of active service in Congress, and all the while a member of the Virginia Assembly, he finally, in 1792, retired from public life. Both branches of the Virginia assembly gave him a vote of thanks for his patriotic services.

Mr. Lee died two years after retiring from public life; his constitution had been enfeebled by his long and arduous labors. He had great suffering, but, though his body had become feeble, his mind retained its vigor. He died at Chantilly on the 19th of June, 1794, and was buried in the old family burial-place, at the "Burnt House Fields," Mt. Pleasant, as he desired in his will.


Ref: Family Bible.
He was chosen as a member of the First Continental congress in 1774 and a member of the committee to frame the Declaration of Independance. Along with his brother, Francis Lightfoot Lee, he signed the Declaration of Indepencence. He wore a piece of black silk over his left hand as he was missing the fingers except for the thumb, due to a hunting accident.

Notes for ZACHARY TAYLOR:
President Zachary Taylor
Occupation: 12th President, USA
Elected in 1848 over Lewis Cass by a popular vote of 1,360,967 to 1,222,342 and an electoral vote of 163 to 127. Chose Millard Fillmore as vice-president. Died in office, while Congress was in session. Was 2nd cousin of James Madison.

Zachary Taylor, nicknamed "Rough and Ready," was our twelfth president and hero of the Mexican War of 1846-1848. He was a descendant of William Brewster and Isaac Allerton. His Mayflower lines came through William Brewster's daughter, Fear, who was Isaac Allerton's second wife. President Taylor's great-grandmother, Sarah Allerton, married Hancock Lee of the Lees of Virginia. He was thus related to Richard Henry Lee, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and General Robert E. Lee of the Confederate Army. Zachary Taylor's daughter, Sarah, was the first wife of Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederate States of America.

Notes for JOHN HANCOCK LEE:
John Lee (of the Ditchley line of Lees) married Laetitia Atwell in Culpeper in 1771 and she died in childbirth in 1775. Major John fought in the Revolutionary War and gave their son Willis Atwell Lee to be raised by his brother, Hancock Lee, who founded Leestown in Kentucky. John Lee's parents were Mary Willis and Hancock Lee. In 1780 or so, John married Elizabeth Bell. They sold his land near the courthouse in Culpeper and moved to Orange Co. John and Elizabeth had a number of children. The Edmund Jennings Lee book on the Lee Family does not memtion Laetitia, only Elizabeth.
