Notes for Richard Lee: There are many records about Richard Lee, who beside being the emigran t and ancestor to a number of historical figures, he was also a prominent and distinguished c olonist. He apparently came to Virginia from England in about 1635. He apparently was settle d in York County in about 1642. He became a \ significant land owner, a member of the h ouse of Burgess, and a justice of the court while he lived in York County. He is described a s a planter, and with the title of Colonel. He apparently was fairly wealthy. He traveled bac k and forth between England and Virginia, and maintained connections in England until his dea th. He apparently moved to Northumberl and County in about 1654, where he died in 1663/64. Hi s estate remained in his family for many years, known as "Cobbs Hall," although that home wa s not built until about 1720.

Johis P C C Probate Act Book fo 3. The exact date of Richard Lee's death is not known. Ther e is ample evidence to show that he returned to Viriginia after executing his will in Londo n on the 6th of Feb 1663-5, proves him to have died prior to that date. The application of h is son for land due his father, deceased, dated 20th Arpil, 1665, proves him to have died pri or to that date. This order states that 4,700 acres were due to John Lee for that transport ation of 94 persons into the colony by "his \ father Col Richard Lee, Esq, who is now d eceased."
National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Dec 1988, vol 76, 4 Dec 1988. Presidential Linieage of Zachar y Taylor. Exceprts from a book concerning KY History of the Lee family. Manusript by Willia m Lee dated Sept 1773 or 1775 "Some time in the reign of Charles I. Richard Lee went over t o the colony of VA as secretary to the King's privy council. During his sojourn in VA he wa s so pleased with the country that he made large investments and settlements with the endentu red persons and servants he had brought over with him. After some years, he returned to Engla nd and gave all the lands he had taken up to those people he had settled on them, some of who se descendants are still living ther and possess considerable estates. "After staying some y ears in England, he returend with a still larger number of adventurers. "Duing the English Wa r, Sir William Berkeley, who was Govenor of VA, and Richard Lee, both being Loyaleists, kep t the ctlonly to it's allegiance, so, after the war, Cromwell was obliged to send ships of wa r and soldeirs to reduce the colony. He was not able to do it, but a treaty was made with t he commonwealth of England wherein Virgina was styled an independent dominion. "When Charle s II was at Breda, Ricahrd Lee went over from VA to see him, to find out if he would protec t the colony if they returned to their allegiance, but finding he could do nothing, he return ed to VA and remained quiet until the death of Cromwell, when he and Sir William Berkeley pro claimed Charles II King of Great Britan, France, & Virginia.
From "The Complete Book of Emigrants", by Peter Wilson Colham:
-There is a record dated May 2, 1635, which describes, "Persons to be transported from Londo n to Barbados in the Alexander," and lists "Richard Lee aged 22." This would make him born i n about 1613, which happens to be the date of birth listed. This record may be the source o f that date, or may confirm that this is the date Richard immigrated to America.
-There is another record, dated May 21, 1635, which describes, "Persons to be transported fro m London to St. Christopherin the Mathew of London," and lists "Richard Lee aged 18." This wo uld make him born in about 1617, and certainly confuses the issue.
-There is another record, which clearly seems to concern this Richard Lee, but seems to confu se the age question even more. It is dated September 8, 1654, and is transcribed: "Depositio n of Richard Lee, gent aged 34, formerly of York River, Virginia; William May of James Town , merchant aged 35; and Thomas Forty of James Town, planter aged 35; Re the voyage to Virgin ia in 1650 of the Flower de Luce carrying indentured servants." This record indicates Richar d was born in 1620. Perhaps there was an error in the transcription, or perhaps Richard was " fudging" his age. This does seem to indicate that by that time he had moved out of York Count y, and presumably to the estate where he died in Northumberland County.
-There is another record from September 1655, which quite well off financially, and still wel l connected to England: "Petition of John Jeffreys of London merchant, on behalf of Colonel R ichard Lee of Virginia. I 1654 brought plate from Virginia to London to have it altered in st yle and every piece was engraved with his coat of arms and was for his personal use. On his r eturn to Virginia it was seized by searchers at Gravesend. Encloses an affidavit by Colonel L ee that the plate was to be shipped in the Anthony. Order for the plate to be returned issue d on 16 November."
-Another record from January 1665, also seems to confirm Richard remained connected to Englan d: "Probate of will of Richard of Stratford Langton, Essex, who died in Virginia." Apparentl y many of the wealthier colonists frequently returned for visits to the mother country.
From Genealogies of Virginia Families, Vol. V, Washington and his neighbors: "Richard Lee set tled in York County about 1642, in which year he obtained a patent for land. Before the massa cre in 1644, he lived at Tindall's Creek, on the Gloucester side. May 25, 1646, "William Whi t by gentleman," sold Lee 100 acres at the same place, part of a larger dividend purchased b y George Ludlow and William Whitby of Argall Yeardly, q. On January 29, 1644-45, Henry Lee a nd Richard Lee, planters, both of the county of York, acknowledged themselves indebted to Mrs . Sibella Felgate, widow of Captain Robert Felgate, gentleman, deceased, in the sum of 20,00 0 weight of "good and merchantable tobacco" for saving harmless the said Mrs Felgate, who ha d given to Henry Lee nine head of cattle "belonging to John Adkins, who is the brother of Ma rah, the wife of the above-bounden Henry Lee"
Richard Lee and Henry Lee were both justices in 1647. Richard was burgess in 1647, and Henr y was a burgess in 1652. Richard moved to Westmoreland, and was a member of the Council befo re 1663. he married Anne _____, and was dead before 1671 leaving: John, Richard, Francis, Wil liam, Hancock, Betsy, Anne (who married Captain Ewell), and Charles."
From Genealogies of Virginia Families, Vol. III, The Lee Family of York County, Virginia:
-Richard Lee was listed as a surety for Henry Lee on a bond in York County dated September 25 , 1646. This bond is reportedly witnessed by a William Lee.
-Mr. Richard Lee was a burgess for York County, Virginia in 1647.
-On a record from the York County Court, dated July 25, 1648, Mr. Richard Lee is listed a on e of the justices of York County present. Mr. Henry Lee is also listed as a justice, and he i s also described as a burgess of York County in 1652.
-In 1648, Richard Lee patented 1,250 acres on the north side of the York River, and among tho se for whom he claimed land were Henry, Mathew, and George Lee.
- The article reports that Richard Lee moved to Northumberland County, although there is no d ated mentioned when this took place. Also, that he was the ancestor of Richard Henry Lee an d Robert E Lee.
-In his will, Richard Lee describes himself as of "Stratford-Langton in the County of Essex , Esquire." This apparently is in reference to where he came from in England. The article co ncludes that there must be some close relationship between Richard Lee, Henry Lee, William Le e, Mathew Lee, and George Lee.
From Virginia Vital Records, The Grave of Richard Lee, the Emigrant, by Ludwell Lee Montague:
"The Grave of Richard Lee, The Emigrant- In March 1664 Colonel Richard Lee, then of London an d Stratford Langton in Essex, died at his plantation on Dividing Creek in Northumberland Coun ty, Virginia, and was buried in the garden of his home there. As late as 1798 his tombston e was still to be seen at the site. Pursuant to Richard Lee's will, his widow (nee Anne Cons table) and younger children returned from England to live at the Dividing Creek plantation , which was eventually inherited by his youngest son, Charles (1656-1701). In the course of t ime, Anne Constable , Charles Lee, and Charles' wife, Elizabeth Medstrand, were in their tur n buried near the grave of Richard Lee. About 1720 Charles Lee II (1684-1734) abandoned th e original Lee home in Dividing Creek and built "Cobbs Hall" at a site about a half mile to t he east. However, the "Cobbs Hall" family continued to use the burying ground at the origina l site. Thus Charles Lee II (but not his widow, Elizabeth Pinckard, who remarried and live d and died elsewhere), Charles Lee III (1722-1747), and the latter's two wives, Mary Lee of " Ditchley" and Leeanna Jones of "Hickory Neck, " were also buried there. This Leeanna Jones wa s herself a great-granddaughter of Richard Lee and granddaughter of Charles Lee I.
In her will, probated in 1761, she ordered the erection of "a proper brick wall round the Bur ying place of myself, and ancestors on this plantation." In 1923 Cazenove Lee undertook to f ind the grave of the emigrant Richard Lee. At the "Cobbs Hall" burying ground the only evide nce above ground was the tombstone of Susan Lee (1802-1852), the wife of William Harvey. Pro bing in the vicinity, however, Cazenove Lee discovered the foundations of the wall erected pu rsuant to the will of Leeanna Lee. (Cazenove Lee, "Locating the Grave of Colonel Richard Lee, " Magazine of the Society of the Lees of Virginia, V, 43-49.) The grave of the emigrant Rich ard Lee was certainly within that enclosure. In 1956 E. Walter Harvey, Sr. the present maste r of "Cobbs Hall, " presented the old family burying ground to the Society of the Less of Vi rginia, which undertook to clear the site, to restore Leeanna Lee's wall, and to erect a suit able marker. This work has now been accomplished. On May 3, 1958, with appropriate ceremon y, the site was rededicated to the memory of the first Richard Lee, of Anne Constable, his wi fe, and of their "Cobbs Hall" descendants buried there."
Richard Lee, Col. b. 1617/18, Worcestershire, England, d. 1 Mar 1664, Dividing Creek, Northu mberland Co., VA, m. Mar 1641, Jamestown, VA, Ann Constable b. 1621/22, England. An early ac count of Richard Lee is given in Lee of VA, p. 49, in a passage written by William Lee in 177 1, is as follows:
93Richard Lee, of a good family in Shropshire (and whose Picture I am told is now at Coton, n ear Bridgenorth, the seat of Launcelot Lee, Esq.), some time in the Reign of Charles the firs t, went over to the Colony of Virginia, as Secretary, and one of the King 92s Privy Council
85. He was a man of good Stature, comely visage, and enterprising genius, a sound head, vigor ous spirit and generous nature. When he got to Virginia, which was at that time not much cult ivated, he was so pleased with the Country that he made large settlements there with the serv ants he had carried over; after some years, he returned to England, and gave away all the lan ds he had taken up, and settled at his own expense, to \ those servants he had fixed o n them; some of whose descendants are now possessed of very considerable Estates in that Colo ny. After staying some Time in England, he returned again to Virginia, with a fresh band o f Adventurers, all of whom he settled there.
In 1646, Richard Lee sat on the York bench as a magistrate, with a Dr. Henry Lee, who marrie d Marah Adkins. Richard patented 1,250 acres in York Co., VA in 1648, and named, amongst h is headrights, Henry, Matthew, and George Lee, who may have been his relatives. That Richar d settled first in York Co., is proven by the grant of 1,000 acres, dated 10 Aug 1642; the pa tent states that his land was due unto the said Richard Lee by and for his own personal Adve nture, his wife Ann, and John Francis and by assignment from Mr. Thomas Hill, Florentine Pain e and William Freeman of their right of land due for the transportation of Seaventeene person s.
This land was the plantation, Paradise in his will, and bequeathed to his second son, Richard . This name is frequently applied to subsequent records to this plantation; as on the 22n d of July, 1674, in a patent issued to Major Richard Lee for 1,140 acres in Gloster, called P aradise, on a branch of Poropotank Creek; 1,000 thereof being due to said Richard Lee by tw o former patents, and the residence now found to be within the bounds. 94 Richard represente d York County as Burgess in 1647, and in 1651 Mr. Lee was paid for services as Burgess of Nor thumberland County. It seems possible that Richard Lee was engaged in commerce as well as ag riculture, and that he had an interest in vessels trading between England and Virginia, as ha d many of the large planters. In his will, he bequeathed to his son, Francis, his interest i n two ships, which was 1/8th part in each vessel. He appears to have made frequent voyage s to and fro; being in England in 1654-55, again in 1659, and later in 1661 and in 1663.
Richard's first home in Virginia was on the York River, near the head of Poropotank Creek, wh ere he had a store or warehouse. His next home was located on the Dividing Creeks in Northum berland, which afforded a very safe harbor. The main creek is only a mile or two long; the n it divides into branches, which makes several small peninsulas or necks as they were former ly called. On two of these necks Richard Lee located his two plantations, where we can fi nd grants for 800 and 600 acres in 1651 and 1656 respectively. Richard was not only Burges s for several counties, but served in several capacities, having been Justice, member of th e Council and Secretary of State. He also served on various commissions. [See Lee of VA, p.59 ]. While in England in 1663, his wife and children being there also, Richard made his will ; the wording of this will indicates that he had given up his intention of settling permanent ly in England. For he ordered that his estate there should be sold, gave minute directions f or the payment of his debts, and closing up of his interests in that country, and made arrang ements for the settlement of his children in Virginia. The account of his property given in h is will shows him to have been possessed of considerable wealth- for that day. If his tobacc o \ crop was actually worth L2000 a year, as Gibbon estimated, and his estate at Stratford- Langton, L800 a year, as stated by William Lee, then Richard Lee must have enjoyed an incom e larger than most of the early planters. His will was executed in London 6 Feb 1663/64, prov . 10 Jan 1664/65, London, England.
