; Elizabeth was the daughter of Richard LEE I.4

; Notes for Elizabeth Lee: From William W. Grier: The Lee-Howson connection has been much confused in print. When Lee of Virginia was published, it was stated that Richard Lee of Cobb's Hall, Northumberland Co., Virginia, (the founder of the family), had a daughter Elizabeth, who married Capt. John Howson. It has since been proved that Elizabeth Lee married Capt. Leonard Howson, and that Capt. John Howson was their son and married Elizabeth Kenner (31 V 355).4 GKJ-8.

; After Mr. Howson died, Elizabeth, who was my ancestress, married John Turberville (my ancestor), who was born ca. 1650 in Co. Worcester or Gloucester, England and died bef 9 Oct 1728 in Lancaster Co., VA.4

; Elizabeth Lee born b. 1654 'Dividing Creek', Lancaster Co., VA, d. 1714/15 in Lancaster Co., VA. She was the daughter of Richard Lee, Col. and Anne Constable. Elizabeth married to Leonard Howson, Capt. abt 1670. Petition for the probate of his will was dated 17 Apr 1689 by Mrs. Elizabeth Howson and son William Howson, and names their children. His actual will was destroyed by fire on 25 Oct 1710. ('HANCOCK AND TURBERVILLE OF TWYNING, GLOUCESTERSHIRE', by John A.Washington (Chevy Chase, MD), THE VIRGINIA GENEALOGIST, Vol. 40, No. 2 (April-June 1996), pages 109-111.)4

; per WFT 10-2501: " Leonard Howson died in 1689 and his widow Elizabeth married John Turberville of Lancaster County. They were parents of George Turberville who became one of the most prominent lawyers in the Virginia Northern Neck and quite a lady's man. Among his wives were two great nieces of his mother -- Martha Lee and Laetitia Fitzhugh."6 Elizabeth Lee was also known as Elizabeth [TWIN] Lee.4
In Col. Richard Henry Lee's will dated 6 February 1663, Elizabeth Lee was named as an heir; Will of Richard Lee (from NEHGR by G. A. Vaut):

     "Fifthly- I give and bequeath to my Beloved Wife Permelia all the land both in her possession - ? - ? - , my Stock Household & Kitchen furniture and plantation utensils except two feather Beds & furniture and two ? - ? - , them I give to my two sons Edmund and Shelton, to be equally divided between them which is intended to make them equal to my other children in the way of advances in personal property. As to my Land I consider it but just that they should have that over and above the rest of my Children in consideration of those remaining with me and taking care of me in my advanced years and feeble Health.
     "Sixthly I give and bequeath to my Beloved Wife Permelia my negro woman, Mariah with her six children, namely Nancy, Washington, Emily, Stephen, Henry and John with all the future increase of the females to be held, used and enjoyed by her during her natural life, and at the death of Wife, I give to my son, Shelton, my negro girl, Emily with all the increase that she may have to him and his heirs forever, and to my son, Edmund HUDSON, I give and bequeath my negro boy, Henry, to take affect on the death of my Wife Permelia, to him and his heirs forever.

     "It is also my Will and desire that at the Death of my Wife Permelia that the children of my Daughter Susan have one of the young Negros above mentioned and one sixth part of any Surplus funds belonging to my Estate. But no part thereof to come to the benefit of Reuben Hudson who intermarried with my said Daughter Susan in so much as he has no care and no industry and gets nothing .
     "I also give and bequeath to my Daughter Jane Frashur (Frazier) and her children one of the young negros before mentioned and one sixth part of any money that may remain on hand belonging to my estate, to them and their heirs forever."
     "I also give and bequeath to each of my sons Shelton and Edmund one sixth part of any funds that may remain on hand and belonging to my Estate this to be over and above the land and young Negros before devised.
     "I do also appoint my friend Daniel COLEMAN Executor to this my last Will and testament hereby revoking and annulling all other Wills and Legaceys (SIC) whatsoever.- and declaring this to be my last Will and testament.

Colonial Families of the Southern States of America: A History and Genealogy of Colonial Families Who Settled in the Colonies prior to the Revolution. Baltimore, MD: Southern Book Co., 1958.

Description:
Combining narrative history with genealogy, this work lists valuable information for oversixty family groupings and thousands of individuals. Devoted entirely to prominent southern families which settled in the American colonies prior to the Revolutionary War, entries often include the location in England where the family came from, land grants, lines of descent, and often occupation.

Subject: Anthony & Patience STEPTOE, 1653, Middlesex, UK; Sir Philip STEPTOE; John COSSENS

Message:
The Ship, "Isaac & Benjamin," under command of Mr. John Plover,sailed from England to Virginia, arriving between 1675 and 1697, carrying Anthony STEPTOE, Patience STEPTOE, and John COSSENS (among others). Anthony Steptoe reportedly was born in 1653, in Middlesex County, England, and died in 1709 in Lancaster County, Virginia. Anthony is reported to have been the third son of Sir Philip STEPTOE, reportedly of Cidrig/Cudrig/[Goodrich?], near Bishop's Walton, in Hampshire, UK. Anthony Steptoe married Lucy Stevens or Stephens who died before 1678 in England. Children of John Steptoe and Lucy Stephens include: John STEPTOE, born circa 1673 in England, and Judith Steptoe, born circa 1675 in England. Anthony Steptoe may have been indentured to John Cossens and served him for a period of six years, prior to 1697. The John Cossens to whom Anthony Steptoe may have been indentured for six years reportedly also was from Cidrig/Cudrig, near Bishop's Walton, in Hampshire. Not clear how Patience Steptoe may have been related to Anthony Steptoe. Seeking background and additional information on the Steptoe Family & Cossens Family in England, circa 1675.
Regards, George H. Stevens; 705 Gleneagles Drive; Fort Washington, MD 20744-7012, USA.[end quote]1

Anthony Steptoe immigrated before 1697 to Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA.1

     ; 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.5,9,10,11,12 GAV-9 GKJ-9.

     ; 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).

; 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.“
