; NB: Wiley Julian Holland has posted a detailed rebuttal (with sources cited) of many of the facts that are publicly included on hundreds of Ancestry trees and elsewhere concerning the ancestry of Gabriel HOLLAND (supposedly c1596-1665) and his supposed son John HOLLAND (supposedly 1628-1710) on the Holland Family History and Tree website. Recently, I had severed the link I had between Henry HOLLAND (1488-1561) and the so-called Thomas 'the Bastard' HOLLAND. Now, I must say that the evidence submitted by Wiley Holland is rather convincing concerning the unlikelihood other issues with this line. To summarize some of the relevant points from Wiley Holland's essay:
1. There was a Gabriel (#1) HOLLAND christened at St. Martins in the Field Parish, London on 15 Feb 1595 (along with at least 18 other HOLLAND children in the period 1577-1606), but there is no evidence that this Gabriel #1 was the son of John and his wife Mary (MULLENAX) HOLLAND.
2. There is no evidence that the Gabriel #1 who arrived in Virginia in 1620 was the Gabriel HOLLAND christened in London in 1595 or that the VA Gabriel #1 was related to John and Mary (MULLENAX) HOLLAND.
3. There is evidence that the Gabriel #1 who arrived in VA in 1620 died only a few years later as an indentured worker.
4. There is evidence that there was a Sargeant Gabriel (#2) HOLLAND with a wife named Rebecca LNU in Jamestown ca 22 Mar 1622 and that this couple arrived from England ca 1621/22, but no evidence that this Gabriel #2 was in any way related to John and Mary (MULLENAX) HOLLAND in London.
5. There is evidence that Rebecca (MNU) HOLLAND (wife of #2) died and Gabriel #2 remarried to Mary (MNU) PINKE, widow of William PINKE.
6. There is no evidence that either Gabriel #1 HOLLAND or Gabriel #2 HOLLAND (by either of his wives) had any children.
7. Furthermore, while there were a number of HOLLANDs in the Virginia colony in the second half of the 17th century (1650-1700). there is no evidence that any of them were descended from or otherwise related to either Gabriel #1 or Gabriel #2.

Wiley Holland summarizes the case as follows:
"The Gabriel Holland who arrived in Virginia in 1621 on the ship Supply was not the same Gabriel Holland who signed the Declaration of the State of the Colony. There were two Gabriel Hollands. The one who came on the ship Supply in 1621 died of natural causes shortly after arrival. He is not the same Gabriel Holland who arrived on the ship John and Francis with his wife Rebecca and signed the Declaration of the State of the Colony in 1624. This Gabriel married Mary Pinke following the death of his first wife, Rebecca and there are no records of him after 1627/28. There is no record of either Gabriel Holland having children or residing in Nansemond County, Virginia."

Conclusion: I find the arguments above convincing enough that I have made several important changes to this line:
1. I have severed the relationship between Gabriel and Mary (MNU PINKE) HOLLAND and John and Mary (MULLENAX) HOLLAND
2. I have added a first wife to Gabriel and information on his arrival in VA with his first wife, Rebecca.
3. I have severed the relationship between Gabriel and his wife Mary (MNU PINKE) HOLLAND and John HOLLAND (CA 1628-1710).

I am thus left with:
1. Gabriel HOLLAND, with two wives and no children.
2. Capt. John HOLLAND, with no known parents.

     "Just to put the initial query in perspective, my memory is not what it used to be, but I seem to remember that the initial genealogical problem is on the Virginia side of things. "Gabriell Holland" came to Virginia with his wife in the _John & Francis_; they were listed in the muster at James Island, with no children. If they had arrived by 1620, but had no children by the January-February 1624/5 muster of surviving inhabitants,
....
     "WHAT EVIDENCE is there that the children attributed to this Gabriel by a second wife were his children? Is there a probate record, or can it be shown they held the same land? People have even made this Gabriel equivalent with a Francis Holand of Maryland!
     "And to push things further, the strongest advocates of a connection are apparently descendants of a John Holland of Nansemond County.
     "Given that the surname Holland is not rare, one would FIRST like to have some good - even probable - indication that the children attributed to this Gabriel were his.
     "On the English side of things, there was a Gabriel Hollande baptized 15 Feb. 1596 at Saint Martin In The Fields, Westminster, but no parents' names are given. There are baptisms of other Holland children there, also without names: Michael, Hester, Leonard, Robert, Peter, Constance, Frances, Philemon, and even a Richard (Gabriel appears with a Richard in Virginia records), but those are not names that occur in the Virnia family, are they? Is there a probate record for the John Holland who is given as their father wjocj names all these children?
     "I theorize that the occurence of the name Constance Holland among these baptisms at Westminster would have immediately led descendants to claim a connection to the daughter (and thus family) of the Duke of Exeter. Paul“.3

The year they arrived is not known but based on ship and court records it was probably 1621/22. Gabriel was living at Shirley 100 in 1622 based on Court testimony he gave January 2, 1624, in which he stated, “he formerly had lived at Shirley 100 where he held the rank of sergeant and had been temporarily responsible for 15 of Berkeley 100’s male servants.”."2

; From Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     29 Jan 1556
     DEATH     26 Oct 1620 (aged 64)
     John Philemon Holland was born in London, the great grandson of Thomas Holland, the bastard son of Sir John de Holland. He was christened at St. Margaret's Westminster, the family church, and married Mary Mollenax at St. Clement Danes on the Strand., 3/5/1584. They had six boys and six girls between 1585 and 1600, all christened at St. Martin-in-the-Fields. Two of these will immigrate to Jamestown in 2/1621. Unfortunately, Richard in killed in an Indian massacre in 1621. Gabriel lives out the rest of his life with his family of six children until his death in 1660.
     Mary Mollenax was born in Wigan, Lancaster in 1562. She was the 18th. generation of Sir William Moulins, founder of the Molyneux family and a knight in William I's army at Hastings. She also descended from: the "Greatest Knight". Sir William Marshall (14th. gen.), King Edward I (9th. gen.), and Sir Thomas de Holland and the Fair Maid (5th. gen.)

     ; NB: Wiley Julian Holland has posted a detailed rebuttal (with sources cited) of many of the facts that are publicly included on hundreds of Ancestry trees and elsewhere concerning the ancestry of Gabriel HOLLAND (supposedly c1596-1665) and his supposed son John HOLLAND (supposedly 1628-1710) on the Holland Family History and Tree website. Recently, I had severed the link I had between Henry HOLLAND (1488-1561) and the so-called Thomas 'the Bastard' HOLLAND. Now, I must say that the evidence submitted by Wiley Holland is rather convincing concerning the unlikelihood other issues with this line. To summarize some of the relevant points from Wiley Holland's essay:
1. There was a Gabriel (#1) HOLLAND christened at St. Martins in the Field Parish, London on 15 Feb 1595 (along with at least 18 other HOLLAND children in the period 1577-1606), but there is no evidence that this Gabriel #1 was the son of John and his wife Mary (MULLENAX) HOLLAND.
2. There is no evidence that the Gabriel #1 who arrived in Virginia in 1620 was the Gabriel HOLLAND christened in London in 1595 or that the VA Gabriel #1 was related to John and Mary (MULLENAX) HOLLAND.
3. There is evidence that the Gabriel #1 who arrived in VA in 1620 died only a few years later as an indentured worker.
4. There is evidence that there was a Sargeant Gabriel (#2) HOLLAND with a wife named Rebecca LNU in Jamestown ca 22 Mar 1622 and that this couple arrived from England ca 1621/22, but no evidence that this Gabriel #2 was in any way related to John and Mary (MULLENAX) HOLLAND in London.
5. There is evidence that Rebecca (MNU) HOLLAND (wife of #2) died and Gabriel #2 remarried to Mary (MNU) PINKE, widow of William PINKE.
6. There is no evidence that either Gabriel #1 HOLLAND or Gabriel #2 HOLLAND (by either of his wives) had any children.
7. Furthermore, while there were a number of HOLLANDs in the Virginia colony in the second half of the 17th century (1650-1700). there is no evidence that any of them were descended from or otherwise related to either Gabriel #1 or Gabriel #2.

Wiley Holland summarizes the case as follows:
"The Gabriel Holland who arrived in Virginia in 1621 on the ship Supply was not the same Gabriel Holland who signed the Declaration of the State of the Colony. There were two Gabriel Hollands. The one who came on the ship Supply in 1621 died of natural causes shortly after arrival. He is not the same Gabriel Holland who arrived on the ship John and Francis with his wife Rebecca and signed the Declaration of the State of the Colony in 1624. This Gabriel married Mary Pinke following the death of his first wife, Rebecca and there are no records of him after 1627/28. There is no record of either Gabriel Holland having children or residing in Nansemond County, Virginia."

Conclusion: I find the arguments above convincing enough that I have made several important changes to this line:
1. I have severed the relationship between Gabriel and Mary (MNU PINKE) HOLLAND and John and Mary (MULLENAX) HOLLAND
2. I have added a first wife to Gabriel and information on his arrival in VA with his first wife, Rebecca.
3. I have severed the relationship between Gabriel and his wife Mary (MNU PINKE) HOLLAND and John HOLLAND (CA 1628-1710).

I am thus left with:
1. Gabriel HOLLAND, with two wives and no children.
2. Capt. John HOLLAND, with no known parents.

Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography, Volume I
IV--Burgesses and Other Prominent Persons
___________________________________________________________________________________

Hancock Lee, son of Richard and Anna Lee, was born in 1653, probably at Dividing Creeks, in Northumberland county, and died May 25, 1709, being buried at "Ditchley," where his tombstone can still be seen with its inscription perfectly legible. This burying ground was used by this branch of the family for several generations, probably until the estate was sold in 1789 to Colonel James Ball Jr., whose descendants own it to-day. Hancock Lee is supposed to have settled in Northampton at the time of his first marriage in 1675, and to have returned to Northumberland county about 1686. The record of the public positions held by him, perhaps only partial, seems to agree with this supposition. He was justice for Northampton county in 1677, and held a similar position in Northumberland in 1687 and 1699, and was also a burgess for Northumberland county in 1688. A list of civil offices, dated June 3, 1699, names him as the "Naval Officer and Collector of Virginia Dutys in Northumberland County;" another list of the date of 1702 mentions him as a justice, showing him to have been in commission at the time of his death. The Northern Neck land records show that Hancock Lee patented land in Richmond county, on both sides of Rappahannock Horsepen Run and adjoining his own land, on the north side of Occoquan, in Stafford county, at the heads of the branches of Chapowamsie, in Stafford, and adjoining the land of Captain Thomas Harrison.

It has usually been stated that Hancock Lee built the old Ditchley mansion about 1687, but there is no evidence to substantiate this tradition. It is not even positively known whether the immigrant lived at "Ditchley" or "Cobb's Hall." Hancock Lee's will was made December 31, 1706, and was probated at Northumberland Court House, July 20, 1709. Of Hancock Lee, Bishop Meade wrote: "That He was a patron of the Church is shown by the fact that he presented a communion cup to the parish in 1729. In honor either of himself or father, or the whole family, the parish was called Lee parish, as may be seen by the inscription on the cup. It was often called Wycomico. After the downfall of the parish Mr. Joseph Ball placed this and other pieces into my hands for preservation, in the hope that the day might come when the old Lee and more modern Wycomico parish might call for it again." The cup is now in use in the old Wycomico church. He married (first) in 1675, Mary, the only daughter of Colonel William Kendall; and (second) Sarah, daughter of Colonel Isaac Allerton, of Westmoreland. Children: William, born prior to 1682, died young and without issue before 1706; Anna, prior to January 5, 1682, and was living as late as October, 1754, married (first) William Armistead, and (second) William Eustace; Richard, born August 18, 1691; (by the second marriage): Isaac, 1707, died in England in 1727; John, born probably in 1709, died August 11, 1789; Hancock, mentioned below; Elizabeth, born 1711, married Zachary Taylor.

Hancock Lee(1653-1709) eventually inherited the southern third of the Dividing
Creek plantation, which he called Hancock's Neck. He married first, Mary
Kendall and second Sarah Allerton, a great-granddaughter of Elder William
Brewster, the leader of the Plymouth Colony. Thus some of the Ditchly Lees
have a Mayflower ancestry. Richard Lee(1691-1740), Hancock Lee's eldest son
inherited Hancock's Neck and renamed it Ditchley, after Ditchley Park in
Oxfordshire. He was pleased to suppose (erroneously) that he was somehow
related to the Earl of Litchfield, the most distinguished Lee of his time. The
present Ditchley mansion was built, about 1762, by this Richard Lee's son,
Kendall Lee. Hancock Lee who proved to be an empire-builder like his father. He
acquired for himself extensive landholdings in what later became Stafford,
Prince William and Fauquier counties. All these lands eventually came into the
possission of his posthumous son Hancock Lee (1709-1789). He married Mary
Willis. His sons Willis and Hancock Lee, and his nephew, Hancock Taylor went to
Kentucky in 1771 as surveyors for the Ohio Company founded by Thomas Lee of
Stratford. Hancock Taylor was killed there by the Indians in 1774. Willis Lee
in 1776. The third Hancock Lee (1737-1815) became the progenitor of a large
family in Piedmont Virginia and Kentucky. The most notable member of the branch
of the family was General Zachary Taylor (1784-1850) a grandson of Elizabeth
Lee, a daughter of the first Hancock Lee. He distinguished himself in the
Mexican War and was afterwards President of the United States. His son Richard
Taylor (1826-1879) was a Confederate lieutenant general.
Patented 5,233 acres of land in county of Northumberland, Parish of Great
Wycomico in siht of Chesapeak is "Ditchley"
======================
per WFT E1-0756:
!"Capt. Hancock, of "Ditchley," in Lee Parish, later Wicomico. He gave a communion cup to the parish, and he was a reader of "The Pilgrim's Progress."
Hancock inherited "Ditchley" from his father. The plantation contained 900 acres and was part of a grant to Colonel Richard Lee.
In "The Storied Kendalls", Anne K. Walker writes: "In the graveyard at "Ditchley" in Wicomico, Northumberland County, the inscriptions on the tombstones of Hancock Lee Esq. and his two wives are as follows:
"Here Lyeth the Body of Hancock Lee, seventh son of Honorable Richard who Departed this life May 25th Anno Dom 1729 AEta 56 years, Also Mary his first wife, only Daughter of William Kendall, Gent who departed this life December the 24th Anno Dom 1694. AEta 33 years. And Sarah his last wife Daughter of Isacc Allerton Esq. Who departed this life May 17th Anno Dom 1731- AE 60 years.
"Ditchley" was the name of one of the Lee estates in Virginia and took the name from the original estate in England, which was presented to Lionel Lee, who lived during the reign of Richard Coeur de Lion. The latter rewarded him for his special gallantry at the siege of Acre, during the third crusade, when Lionel in 1192 raised a company of gentlemen and marched with the king to the Holy Land. On his return, he was made first Earl of Litchfield; the king
presented him at that time with the estate of "Ditchley" as solid proof of his approbation." "Ditchley" still stands [at the writing of Mrs. Walker's book in 1947] in the Northern Neck of Virginia...It was patented in 1651 by Colonel Richard Lee. The first house dated from 1687; the present house was built by Kendall Lee in 1752."
In 1929, Will Franke wrote, "Hancock Lee was a man of importance, filling many honorable places in the Colony. He was a Burgess, a justice and a naval officer, being Collector of Customs in his district.
He was also a patron of the church. A chalice which he gave to his church is still in use."10,11
In Col. Richard Henry Lee's will dated 6 February 1663, Hancock Lee was named as an heir; Will of Richard Lee (from NEHGR by G. A. Vaut):
"Will of Col. Richard Lee of Virginia.

!In "The Storied Kendalls" by Anne Kendrick Walker (1947), she mentions Mary on page 33.
She writes: "It is through the marriage of Colonel William Kendall's only daughter, Mary, to Hancock Lee...that the Kendall family is directly related to the illustrious Lee family of Virginia. An illusion to this marriage is as follows: "Hancock Lee (son of Col. Richard Lee who came to Virginia in 1641) married (1st) Mary, daughter of Col. William Kendall, of Newport House,
Burgess for Northampton County, Virginia..."
From Hening's Statutes [William W. Hening:The Statutes at Large in Virginia: 13 Volumes], Mrs. Lee appears to have been well endowed with lands "by her father, Col. Wm. Kendall of Newport House, Northampton County."
Mary's father's will stated: "To son-in-law Hancock Lee, Gent: the land where said Lee now lives, with the negroes, stock etc., according to my deed of Gift to said Hancock Lee and my daughter Mary, his now wife, wit reversion to grand-daughter Anne Lee, eldest daughter of said Hancock Lee."5,6
In Col. William Kendall's will dated 29 December 1685 at Northampton Co., Virginia, USA, Mary Kendall was named as an heir.1,7

Note:

The exact date of Richard Lee's death is not known. There is ample evidence to
show that he returned to Viriginia after executing his will in London on the
6th of Feb 1663-5, proves him to have died prior to that date. The application
of his son for land due his father, deceased, dated 20th Arpil, 1665, proves
him to have died prior to that date. This order states that 4,700 acres were
due to John Lee for that transportation of 94 persons into the colony by "his
father Col Richard Lee, Esq, who is now deceased."

Note:

National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Dec 1988, vol 76, # 4 The parents of
Colonel Richard Lee of Virginia by William Thorndale. For nearly a century,
the clue to identifying Richard Lee's parents has been public knowledge. The
1666 will of John Best of Twining, published in 1892, names not only "Colonell
Richard Lea" but also a Thomas Hancock, clotheir of the city of Worcester --
Hancock being the colonel's uncle and Worcester being Richard's place of
Christening. Worcester, Twining, and Coton Hall (Alveleley parish) all lay
along the main north-south trade route of the West Midlands -- the River
Severn and its parallel highway runinning from Shrewsbury to Bristol,
Worcester lies only twenty miles south of the Coton Hall and twleve miles
north of Twining. However, the author of this present article was no more
sensitive to such clues than previous reserchers and reached the Worcester
solution via a detour of several weeks of reading London guild records. The
bare-bones Hancock family of Twining outlined in figure 2, emerges from two
Hancock wills and some visitation charts. (The Twining ingregister are lost
before 1648.) the 1682-83 Worcester visitation gives only a birth order of
Edward's sons. Therefore, Hancock's three daugher are listed her after their
brothers. The names which appear with and asterick are those found in John
Best's will. Six of Edward's eight children - or their children - are named by
Best. The seventh, Elizabeth (Hancock) Best was presumably John's mother,
Jane, the last of the eight, will be proved the mother of Colonel Richard Lee,
the latter also named in Best's will. Meanwhile, Edward Hancock's will of 1621
bequeathed twenty shillings to John Lyes[Lees] three sons to be invested until
the boys reached age twenty-one. A visitation record further holds that
Edward's fifth son, William, was a vintner; while John Best identified Thomas
and Rirchard Savage as also vintners of London.

Note:

The record of the Vintners' Guild of London offer the following five
apprenticeships: 2 April 1611 - William Hancock, son of Edw Hancock of Twining
Co, Gloucester, yeoman, was bound to Jacob Bonamy He became free 14 Jun 1620.
Hancock later married Bonamy's daughter.

Note:

2 April 1833 - John Lee, son of Jo: Lee of "Woster" clothier, was bound to
William Hancock for eight years. No freedom entry found.

Note:

14 April 1640 - Benjamin Hancock, son of Thos Hancock of the city of
"worester", clotheir, was bound to Jacob Bonamy for seven years. He became
free 1 June 1647.

Note:

7 JUL 1646 - Thomas Savage, son of Tho: Savage of the city of Worcester,
clotheir, was bound to William Hancock for seven years. No freedom entry found.

Note:

3 October 1648 - Ricahrd Savage, son of Tho: S: of the city of Worcester,

National Genelaogical Society Quearerly vol 76, # 4 Dec 1988. Presidential
Linieage of Zachary Taylor. Exceprts from a book concerning KY History of the
Lee family. Manusript by William Lee dated Sept 1773 or 1775 "Some time in the
reign of Charles I. Richard Lee went over to the colony of VA as secretary to
the King's privy council. During his sojourn in VA he was so pleased with the
country that he made large investments and settlements with the endentured
persons and servants he had brought over with him. After some years, he
returned to England and gave all the lands he had taken up to those people he
had settled on them, some of whose descendants are still living ther and
possess considerable estates. "After staying some years in England, he
returend with a still larger number of adventurers. "Duing the English War,
Sir William Berkeley, who was Govenor of VA, and Richard Lee, both being
Loyaleists, kept the ctlonly to it's allegiance, so, after the war, Cromwell
was obliged to send ships of war and soldeirs to reduce the colony. He was not
able to do it, but a treaty was made with the commonwealth of England wherein
Virgina was styled an independent dominion. "When Charles II was at Breda,
Ricahrd Lee went over from VA to see him, to find out if he would protect the
colony if they returned to their allegiance, but finding he could do nothing,
he returned to VA and remained quiet until the death of Cromwell, when he and
Sir William Berkeley proclaimed Charles II King of Great Britan, France, &
Virginia.

Note:

Notes for Richard Lee:
There are many records about Richard Lee, who beside being the emigrant and
ancestor to a number of historical figures, he was also a prominent and
distinguished colonist. He apparently came to Virginia from England in about
1635. He apparently was settled in York County in about 1642. He became a
significant land owner, a member of the house of Burgess, and a justice of the
court while he lived in York County. He is described as a planter, and with
the title of Colonel. He apparently was fairly wealthy. He traveled back and
forth between England and Virginia, and maintained connections in England
until his death. He apparently moved to Northumberland County in about 1654,
where he died in 1663/64. His estate remained in his family for many years,
known as "Cobbs Hall," although that home was not built until about 1720.
_____________________________________________________________________

Note: From "The Complete Book of Emigrants", by Peter Wilson Colham:
Note:

-There is a record dated May 2, 1635, which describes, "Persons to be
transported from London to Barbados in the Alexander," and lists "Richard Lee
aged 22." This would make him born in about 1613, which happens to be the date
of birth listed. This record may be the source of that date, or may confirm
that this is the date Richard immigrated to America.

Note:

-There is another record, dated May 21, 1635, which describes, "Persons to be
transported from London to St. Christopher in the Mathew of London," and lists
"Richard Lee aged 18." This would make him born in about 1617, and certainly
confuses the issue.

Note:

-There is another record, which clearly seems to concern this Richard Lee, but
seems to confuse the age question even more. It is dated September 8, 1654,
and is transcribed: "Deposition 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 Virginia in 1650 of the
Flower de Luce carrying indentured servants." This record indicates Richard
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 County, and presumably to the estate where he died in
Northumberland County.

Note:

-There is another record from September 1655, which quite well off
financially, and still well connected to England: "Petition of John Jeffreys
of London merchant, on behalf of Colonel Richard Lee of Virginia. I 1654
brought plate from Virginia to London to have it altered in style and every
piece was engraved with his coat of arms and was for his personal use. On his
return to Virginia it was seized by searchers at Gravesend. Encloses an
affidavit by Colonel Lee that the plate was to be shipped in the Anthony.
Order for the plate to be returned issued on 16 November."

Note:

-Another record from January 1665, also seems to confirm Richard remained
connected to England: "Probate of will of Richard of Stratford Langton, Essex,
who died in Virginia." Apparently many of the wealthier colonists frequently
returned for visits to the mother country.

Note: ___________________________________________________________________
Note: From Genealogies of Virginia Families, Vol. V, Washington and his neighbors:
Note:

"Richard Lee settled in York County about 1642, in which year he obtained a
patent for land. Before the massacre in 1644, he lived at Tindall's Creek, on
the Gloucester side. May 25, 1646, "William Whitby gentleman," sold Lee 100
acres at the same place, part of a larger dividend purchased by George Ludlow
and William Whitby of Argall Yeardly, Esq.
On January 29, 1644-45, Henry Lee and 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 20,000
weight of "good and merchantable tobacco" for saving harmless the said Mrs
Felgate, who had given to Henry Lee nine head of cattle "belonging to John
Adkins, who is the brother of Marah, the wife of the above-bounden Henry Lee"
Richard Lee and Henry Lee were both justices in 1647. Richard was burgess in
1647, and Henry was a burgess in 1652.
Richard moved to Westmoreland, and was a member of the Council before 1663. he
married Anne _____, and was dead before 1671 leaving: John, Richard, Francis,
William, Hancock, Betsy, Anne (who married Captain Ewell), and Charles."

Note: ________________________________________________________________________
Note:

From Genealogies of Virginia Families, Vol. III, The Lee Family of York
County, Virginia:

Note:

-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.

Note: -Mr. Richard Lee was a burgess for York County, Virginia in 1647
Note:

-On a record from the York County Court, dated July 25, 1648, Mr. Richard Lee
is listed a one of the justices of York County present. Mr. Henry Lee is also
listed as a justice, and he is also described as a burgess of York County in
1652.

Note:

-In 1648, Richard Lee patented 1,250 acres on the north side of the York
River, and among those for whom he claimed land were Henry, Mathew, and George
Lee.

Note:

-The article reports that Richard Lee moved to Northumberland County, although
there is no dated mentioned when this took place. Also, that he was the
ancestor of Richard Henry Lee and Robert E Lee.

Note:

-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.

Note:

The article concludes that there must be some close relationship between
Richard Lee, Henry Lee, William Lee, Mathew Lee, and George Lee.

From Virginia Vital Records, The Grave of Richard Lee, the Emigrant, by
Ludwell Lee Montague:

Note:

"The Grave of Richard Lee, The Emigrant- In March 1664 Colonel Richard Lee,
then of London and Stratford Langton in Essex, died at his plantation on
Dividing Creek in Northumberland County, Virginia, and was buried in the
garden of his home there. As late as 1798 his tombstone was still to be seen
at the site.
Pursuant to Richard Lee's will, his widow (nee Anne Constable) 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 time, Anne Constable , Charles Lee, and Charles' wife, Elizabeth
Medstrand, were in their turn buried near the grave of Richard Lee. About
1720 Charles Lee II (1684-1734) abandoned the original Lee home in Dividing
Creek and built "Cobbs Hall" at a site about a half mile to the east. However,
the "Cobbs Hall" family continued to use the burying ground at the original
site. Thus Charles Lee II (but not his widow, Elizabeth Pinckard, who
remarried and lived 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 was 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 Burying place of myself, and ancestors on this plantation." In 1923
Cazenove Lee undertook to find the grave of the emigrant Richard Lee. At the
"Cobbs Hall" burying ground the only evidence above ground was the tombstone
of Susan Lee (1802-1852), the wife of William Harvey. Probing in the vicinity,
however, Cazenove Lee discovered the foundations of the wall erected pursuant
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 Richard Lee was certainly within that enclosure. In
1956 E. Walter Harvey, Sr. the present master of "Cobbs Hall, " presented the
old family burying ground to the Society of the Less of Virginia, which
undertook to clear the site, to restore Leeanna Lee's wall, and to erect a
suitable marker. This work has now been accomplished. On May 3, 1958, with
appropriate ceremony, the site was rededicated to the memory of the first
Richard Lee, of Anne Constable, his wife, and of their "Cobbs Hall"
descendants buried there."

Note:

Richard Lee, Col. b. 1617/18, Worcestershire, England, d. 1 Mar 1664, Dividing
Creek, Northumberland Co., VA, m. Mar 1641, Jamestown, VA, Ann Constable b.
1621/22, England. An early account of Richard Lee is given in Lee of VA, p.
49, in a passage written by William Lee in 1771, is as follows: “Richard Lee,
of a good family in Shropshire (and whose Picture I am told is now at Coton,
near Bridgenorth, the seat of Launcelot Lee, Esq.), some time in the Reign of
Charles the first, went over to the Colony of Virginia, as Secretary, and one
of the King’s Privy Council….He was a man of good Stature, comely visage, and
enterprising genius, a sound head, vigorous spirit and generous nature. When
he got to Virginia, which was at that time not much cultivated, he was so
pleased with the Country that he made large settlements there with the
servants he had carried over; after some years, he returned to England, and
gave away all the lands he had taken up, and settled at his own expense, to
those servants he had fixed on them; some of whose descendants are now
possessed of very considerable Estates in that Colony. After staying some Time
in England, he returned again to Virginia, with a fresh band of 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 married Marah Adkins. Richard patented
1,250 acres in York Co., VA in 1648, and named, amongst his headrights, Henry,
Matthew, and George Lee, who may have been his relatives. That Richard settled
first in York Co., is proven by the grant of 1,000 acres, dated 10 Aug 1642;
the patent states that his land was due “unto the said Richard Lee by and for
his own personal Adventure, his wife Ann, and John Francis and by assignment
from Mr. Thomas Hill, Florentine Paine and William Freeman of their right of
land due for the transportation of Seaventeene p’sons.” 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 22nd of July, 1674, in a patent issued to “Major Richard Lee for 1,140
acres in Gloster, called Paradise, on a branch of Poropotank Creek; 1,000
thereof being due to said Richard Lee by two former patents, and the residence
now found to be within the bounds.” Richard represented York County as Burgess
in 1647, and in 1651 “Mr. Lee” was paid for services as Burgess of
Northumberland County. “It seems possible that Richard Lee was engaged in
commerce as well as agriculture, and that he had an interest in vessels
trading between England and Virginia, as had many of the large planters. In
his will, he bequeathed to his son, Francis, his interest in two ships, which
was 1/8th part in each vessel. He appears to have made frequent voyages 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, where he had a store or warehouse. His next home was located
on the Dividing Creeks in Northumberland, which afforded a very safe harbor.
The main creek is only a mile or two long; then it divides into branches,
which makes several small peninsulas or “necks” as they were formerly called.
On two of these necks Richard Lee located his two plantations, where we can
find grants for 800 and 600 acres in 1651 and 1656 respectively. Richard was
not only Burgess for several counties, but served in several capacities,
having been Justice, member of the 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 thiswill indicates that he had given up his intention of settling
permanently in England. For he ordered that his estate there should be sold,
gave minute directions for the payment of his debts, and closing up of his
interests in that country, and made arrangements for the settlement of his
children in Virginia. The account of his property given in his will shows him
to have been possessed of considerable wealth- for that day. If his tobacco
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 income larger than most of the early planters. His will
was executed in London 6 Feb 1663/64, prov. 10 Jan 1664/65, London, England.10

per WFT 10-0728: "immigrated about 1640 to Jamestown, VA", religion Church of England

per WFT 10-2501: "Col. Richard Lee, also known as "Lee of Virginia" was one of the most prominent men of the colony during the second quarter of the 17th century. He was born in 1613 at Nordley Regis, Shropshire England of a family which had lived in Shropshire at least as early as the 12th Century and which, through the female lines, was connected to many of the leading familes of England who gained their prominence as a result of the Norman Conquest. These families included the Plangagenets, Beauchamps, Greys, Harcourts, Blounts, Astleys and Zouches.

Richard came to Virginia in 1639 as a member of the staff of Governor Sir Francis Wyatt. In 1643 he was appointed Attorney General of the Colony and in 1649 he became Secretary of State. He acquired great quantities of land, estimated at his death at over 30,000 acres. In 1641 he married at Jamestown, Anne Constable, a ward of Sir John Thorowgood of London. Her parentage is not definitely proven, but the parish records of St. Gregory and St. Paul, London, list an "Anne Constable christened 21 February 1621/22, daughter of Francis Constable and Mary Mallee". This is the same parish where her guardian, Sir John Thorowgood, lived and she was supposedly about 19 years old when she married, so the probable birth date is not out of line.

===========================
per WFT E1-0756
Richard came to Virginia in 1641, and married Ann about this time.
Colonel Lee was an adherent of Charles I, and helped to keep Virginia loyal to the Stuarts,
acting as secretary to Sir William Berkely, the governor.
He was clerk of the Council in 1642; attorney general the next year; burgess for the county of York in 1647, for Northumberland in 1651; member of the Council in 1663; secretary of the colony in 1651, 1659-1663; and a colonel of militia in 1651.
A burgess was required to be a freeholder and resident of the County he represented, so he must have lived as early as that in Northumberland and probably of "Cobbs Hall" where John Gibbon, officaial of the Heralds College visited him in 1659."
He was also a magistrate, and a wealthy planter and merchant. His first plantation was on the York River, near Poropotank Creek, and in later years at Dividing Creeks, in Northumberland.
He also had an estate in Stratford-Langton, County Essex, England, where he spent much time toward the end of his life.
Will Franke also wrote: "He held many important places in the colony. As noted he was many times a Burgess, served on many important committees, was a member of the King's Privy Council and was Secretary of State for the Colony under Governor Sir William Berkeley.
Col. Lee and his family made many visits to England. The last visit was in 1660 when he remained there three years, probably for the education of his children. He died in 1664, leaving a wife and eight children, all mentioned in his will. He left all of his plate to be equally divided between his three eldest sons. His will was executed in England just before he returned with his family to Virginia. He lived but a short time after reaching Virginia, dying the early part of 1664."
Mrs. Stanard, in her "Colonial Virginia", mentions the following incident connected with a visit which Lee made to England:
"In 1655, Colonel Richard Lee took some of his plate to London to have its fashion changed. There was a law against exporting silver from England, and when he was about to embark on his homeward voyage the customs officers at Gravesend seized his 'trunk of plate,' but on his affidavit that it was all intended for his own use and that most of it had been brought from Virginia a year and a half before, and that every piece had his coat of arms on it, it was given back to him."
Will Franke compiled a chart on the Lee family in 1929. He wrote, "Col. Richard Lee was descended from the ancient and honorable family of Lee of Merton Regis in Shropshire, of whom one genealogist said, 'They were ladies and gentlemen before many of the present nobility had emerged from obscurity.' It was in fact one of those ancient county families which numbered among them gentlemen, knights and baronets.
Colonel Lee came to Virginia with his young wife Anna and settled first in York County as is shown by his first land grant dated Aug. 10, 1642. That he was then married but had no children is shown by name being mentioned in the "head rights". The grant shows that is was 'for his own personal adventure and his wife Anna' and '17 other persons whom he brought to the colony.'
All of the land patented by Richard Lee between 1642-51 was situated in that part of York which was subsequently included in Gloucester..."
A book called "Lee of VA 1642-1892", edited and published by Edmund Jennings Lee in 1983 in Maryland says NOT to pay attention to a book called "General History of the Lee Family of VA & MD" by E. C. Mead, as there are numerous mistakes.11,6
; NB: I have recently "discovered" the research dating from the 1988 article by William Thorndale, regarding the "truth" of the ancestry of the colonial immigrant, Col. Richard LEE, and disproving any evident link to the LEE family of CotonHall, Shropshire. Thorndale's work was extended by Townsend in 2002. One of my original sources for this line, the 7th ed. of Weis (1992), included the link from the Coton Hall LEEs to Co. Richard LEE, but the 8th ed. (2004) deletes the link citing Thomason (2002).
     The note in Weis (2004) reads: "Gen. 36 through 38, in previous editions, has been proven to be in error. See Neil Thompason, "Lees of Northumberland and Worcester," NGSQ 90 (2002)l213-217)."

In Jane Hancock's will dated 31 May 1634, Col. Richard Henry Lee was named as an heir.15
In Walter Heminge (Sr.)'s will dated between 6 February 1636 and 1637, Col. Richard Henry Lee was named as an heir; Per Thompson:
"Drawn 6 February 1636/7
Probate date unstated, but possibly 9 June 1637

Clothier of Worcester, names his wife Susanna as his executor and his father Richard Heminge as an overseer. He also cites his mother Alice as still alive.

     ; NB: I have recently "discovered" the research dating from the 1988 article by William Thorndale, regarding the "truth" of the ancestry of the colonial immigrant, Col. Richard LEE, and disproving any evident link to the LEE family of CotonHall, Shropshire. Thorndale's work was extended by Townsend in 2002. One of my original sources for this line, the 7th ed. of Weis (1992), included the link from the Coton Hall LEEs to Co. Richard LEE, but the 8th ed. (2004) deletes the link citing Thomason (2002).
     The note in Weis (2004) reads: "Gen. 36 through 38, in previous editions, has been proven to be in error. See Neil Thompason, "Lees of Northumberland and Worcester," NGSQ 90 (2002)l213-217)."
Images of the full Thorndale and Thompson articles are attached. GA Vaut.1,2,10,11,12 GAV-10 GKJ-10.

; per WFT 17-2040: "This family originally came as part of house of Litchfield, and ancestors came from France with William the Conqueror in 1066, getting estates in county Essex. Lionel Lee went with Richard on the third crusade in 1180-1192. Richard Lee went with the Earl of Surrey against the Scots and two of his descendants became Knights Companions of the King.“
NB: This is an example of the invented genealogies linking John Lee (father of the colonial Col. Richard Lee) to the noble Lee famile of Coton. GA Vaut.13,12 John Lee was also known as John Lyes/Lies.1

; Weis says "The parentage of John Lee has not been determined...Richard Lee was perhaps father of [John] by a first wife". Magna Charta Sureties, p. 165 (line 124-16 and 16A).14 He was listed as a beneficiary in John Lees's will on 8 July 1597 at St. Martin's Parish, Worcester, City of Worcester, Worcestershire, England.3

Item I give and bequeath to my sonne Thomas the remnant of the same cloatb before mentioned towards the making of a suit of apparell for him, and a fine old peece of gold for a token in remembrance of me his mother. And the rest of goods, chattells, householdstuffe and implements whatsoever I will and require to be sold and the mony received for them to be divided by such portions as that Thomas may have two parts and my sonne Richard the third part. As concerning the rents of my now dwelling house, the tenement and Garden adjoyning and the debts due to me as upon bill appeareth, my owne debts and funeral! thinges being payd, and the yearly rent of foure pounds to my Landlord duly discharged, I will and ordaine that whatsoever remaineth of the same be equally devided betweene my sayd two last sonnes Richard and Thomas. To this purpose I desire that my now dwelling house with the tenement adjoyning may be let out for the best to their benefitt, but the garden I will that Thomas Prichard still hold and continue during the lease for the usual! rent of 4s yearely. Those portions thus bequeathed I will and desire to remaine in the custody of my brother Thomas Hancocks untill they be each of them 24 yeares of age excepting only that thecloath before mentioned be presently after my decease so divided as is specified to John and Thomas. Provided always that if John my eldest sonne be deceased before he come to the said age of 24 years that then the sayd portion and legacy now bequeathed to him shall come to Thomas my youngest sonne if he be then living but at the age of 24 yeares to bedelivered to him together with his owne portion. So likewise if Thomas be deceased before he be of the sayd age that then the portion go now bequeathed to him goe in like manner to John if he be then living. If both be deceased before either of them come to the sayd age, that then their portions shall goe entirely to my sonne Richard but at the age of 24 yeares as is before mentioned. If Richard be deceased before he come to the full age required, that then his portion shalbe equally divided between his surviving brothers at their full age, or goe wholly to one if but one be living. And for the better performance hereof I commit the letting of my house, the selling of my goods and the preserving of the severall portions to the trust of my brother Thomas Hancocks whom I make sole executor of this my last will and testament, desiring likewise my brothers Walter Heming, Richard Lyes and Thomas Savage to be his assistants for the good of my children .

LAWS OF VIRGINIA, OCTOBER 1754??28th GEORGE II. CHAP. V.
An Act for vesting seven hundred acres of land, with the appurtenances, lying on Cherristone's creek, in the parish of Hungar's, and county of Northampton, in Littleton Eyre, gent. in fee-simple.
     "I. WHEREAS William Kendall, formerly of the county of Northampton, now deceased, being seised in fee simple, among other lands, of seven hundred acres, lying and being on Cherristone's creek in the parish of Hungar's, in the said county did, by deed of gift, bearing date the first day of August, one thousand six hundred and eighty five, in consideration of the love and affection that he bore to his well beloved son in law, Hancock Lee, and in consideration of five shillings sterling, give, grant, assign, and confirm to the said Hancock Lee, and Mary his wife, the said seven hundred acres of land, to hold to the said Hancock Lee, and Mary his wife, during their natural lives, and to the survivor of them; and after their decease to his grand daughter Anna Lee, daughter of the said Hancock and Mary, and the heirs male of her body, lawfully begotten, for ever, with divers limitations and remainder over, in case of failure of such issue. And whereas the said Anna Lee, after the death of her said father and mother, entered into the said seven hundred acres of land, and became thereof seised in tail male, and being so seised, intermarried with one William Armistead, now deceased, and had issue by him John Armistead, now also deceased, her eldest son and heir at law, who let issue John Armistead, of the county of Gloucester, gentleman, his eldest son and heir at law, who after the death of the said Anna, his grandmother, will be entitled to the said seven hundred acres of land in tail male. And whereas the said John Armistead, the father, by his last will and testament in writing, bearing date the ninth day of April, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and thirty four, did give and devise to his daughter Susanna, six hundred pounds sterling, to be paid her when she should attain the age of twenty one years, or marriage; and did also by his said will give and devise to his son William Armistead, six hundred pounds sterling, and did direct that the same should be paid by the said John Armistead, his son, when he should arrive at the age of twenty one years. And whereas the said Susanna, intermarried with Moore Fantleroy, of the county of Richmond, who soon after his marriage brought suit against the said John Armistead, the son, in the county court of Gloucester, and obtained a decree against him for the said six hundred pounds sterling, so as aforesaid given to the said Susanna, with interest thereon, from the time of his marriage. And the said John Armistead, the son, not being able to pay off the said decree, the said Moore Fantleroy sued out an attachment thereon, against the body to the said John Armistead, by virtue whereof the sheriff of the said county of Gloucester, took and arrested the body of the said John Armistead, and him in his custody had and detained until he performed the said decree. And the said William Armistead, having obtained his age of twenty one years, hath lately brought a suit in the said county court of Gloucester, against the said John Armistead, the son, for recovery of his legacy. And whereas the said John Armistead the son, hath already sold all the lands whereof he was seised in fee-simple; and it will be very much to the disadvantage of the said John Armistead the son, and his posterity, if the slaves given him by his father should be sold to pay the said legacies, which if sufficient for that purpose would render the remainder of his lands of little or no benefit to him, or his posterity, and therefore the said John Armistead the son, applied to a former session of this Assembly for, and obtained an act to impower him to sell certain intailed lands in the county of Essex, for the performance of his father's will, but hath not yet been able to sell the same, nor will the same, when sold, raise near sufficient for that purpose. And whereas the said Anna Armistead, the tenant in tail, and John Armistead the son, contracted with Littleton Eyre of the said county of Northampton, gentleman, for the sale of the said seven hundred acres of land, for the sum of eight hundred and fifty pounds current money, which was the most that was offered or could be got for the same, and the said Anna Armistead, by her certain indenture of bargain and sale, bearing date the twenty ninth day of August, one thousand seven hundred and fifty four, for the consideration of the said eight hundred and fifty pounds, did grant, bargain, sell, and confirm the said seven hundred acres of land, with the appurtenances, unto the said Littleton Eyre, to hold to the said Littleton Eyre, his heirs and assigns, to the only proper use and behoof of the said Littleton Eyre, his heirs and assigns, for ever, with a covenant for further assuring and confirming the said land to him in fee-simple, as in the said indenture recorded in the general court of this colony, among other things more fully is contained; and the said Littleton Eyre, with the consent, and by the directions of the said Anna Armistead, hath actually paid the said eight hundred and fifty pounds, towards discharging the debts aforesaid, of the said John Armistead the son. And whereas notice hath been published three Sundays successively, in the church of the said parish of Hungar's that application would be made to this General Assembly, for leave to dock the intail of the said seven hundred acres of land, pursuant to your majesty's instructions.
II. May it therefore please your most excellent majesty, at the humble suit of the said Anna Armistead, and John Armistead the son, that it may be enacted, and Be it enacted by the Lieutenant-Governor, Council, and Burgesses of this present General Assembly, and it is hereby enacted by the authority of the same, That the said seven hundred acres of land, lying on Cherristone's creek, in the said parish of Hungars, and the county of Northampton, so given by the said William Kendall, to his son in law Hancock Lee, and his daughter Mary, the wife of the said Hancock Lee, during their lives, and after their deaths to the said Anna their daughter, shall be, and the same are hereby vested in the said Littleton Eyre, his heirs and assigns, to the only use and behoof of the said Littleton Eyre, his heirs and assigns for ever.
III. Saving to the king's most excellent majesty, his heirs and successors, and to all and every other person and persons, bodies politic and corporate, their respective heirs and successors, other than the person and persons claiming under the deed aforesaid, made by the said William Kendall, all such right, title, estate, interest, claim, and demand, as they, every, or any of them, should, could, or might have had or claimed, if this act had never been made.
IV. Provided always, That the execution of this act shall be suspended until his majesty's approbation thereof shall be obtained.

William Kendall, forebear of the family whose history is followed in the present work, came to Northampton County about the middle of the 17th century. Briefly, his services to Virginia were as follows:
Colonel William Kendall was a member of the House of Burgesses for Northampton County [Sessions 1657-1685]. He was long an officer of the Militia and Justice of the County Court (from 1656) and was sent...as one of the Virginia Commissioners to treat with the Five Nations and he died in 1686, probably while on 'public employ' on the Rappahannock River. It seems likely that this public business was in connection with the effort to bring the Virginia Indians into peaceful relations with the Five Nations.
The Indian Confederacy was formed about 1570, quoting J.N. B. Hewitt as authority. "The League originally consisted of five tribes, the Mohawk, Seneca, Cayuga, Oneida, and Onondaga; hence their name, The Five Nations.
...In 1679, Col. William Kendall, as agent of Virginia, held a conference [in Albany].
While his services were of moment in the colony, it is evident that William Kendall kept in touch with his relatives in England. He made bequests to a niece living in Yarmouth, a newphew, son of his brother John, 'living about Brinton,' and a brother, Thomas, living in Norwich.
Col. William Kendall was married several times. His first marriage was probably in England. He married in Virginia the widow of Thomas Eyre of Northampton. His wife in 1658 was Susanna, widow of Captain Pott; and in 1677 his wife was named Susanna. The wife who survived him was named Sarah, who had been Mrs. Mathews...
...The will of William Kendall, Senior, merchant, was dated December 29, 1685, and proved July 28, 1686."
Several codicils were added. One dated June 16, 1686, states that as he is going to Rappahannock on "public employ," and he gives his wife, Sarah, 30,000 pounds of tobacco to be laid out in building where son William lives."
Will Franke wrote that William was the "Honorable William Kendall of Newport House in
Northumberland County, Virginia."7

Col. William Kendall left a will on 29 December 1685 at Northampton Co., Virginia, USA.1,4
