(Notes from Pamela Cranston)

The Lee Family of Middlesex County, Virginia

The home of this family was in the northern part of Middlesex, near what is now the village of Jamaica, and lies between Parrott's Creek and the Dragon, which is the head waters of the Pyankatank River. It is a rolling, well wooded and watered country and just south of the Essex County border.

Previous to 1667, Middlesex was a part of Lancaster county and the records are to be found in the Lancaster books. During this period the only certain way of determining whether one was an inhabitant of either county was by the grouping of names. This is conclusive.

The earliest known founder of this family is Thomas Lee. The earliest reference to him is in 1662.

Many Lees were in Virginia previous to this date. Nugent's Cavaliers and Pioneers lists four Thomas Lees who came over as head rights. Others came in from the West Indies. So far, it has been impossible to find out whether Thomas Lee was the first of his line to be in Virginia, or the names of his parents. The family name of his wife, Elizabeth, is not known, or if she was his first wife. The guesses have slight foundation. Possibly that they settled Jamaica might indicate a West Indies source. The name Charles was cherished through several generations. It might have been the name of Thomas’ father. Thomas Lee appeared to have more land than can be accounted for by purchase which might indicate that he inherited it. He also had four tithables in 1665 and five in 1666. He must have been a young man then and had other dependents other than children. The lines of the other Lees in Virginia are far from being cleared up. After 1666 Middlesex did not record tithables.

The main church in Lancaster/Middlesex County was Christ Church, under the Church of England. "Middlesex county was originally a part of Lancaster county, when the latter covered both sides of the Rappahannock River for an indefinite distance. Between the years 1650 and 1660 it is probable that it was made a separate county. Until that time one minister served the whole county, although it is probable there were two parishes on either side of the river before the division of the county. Those on the south side were called Lancaster and Pyankatank. They were originally one, and called Lancaster; and, in 1666, became one again, under the name of Christ Church, Lancaster county." Source: Meade, William. Old Churches, Ministers, and Families of Virginia, Volume I and II, (Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1857, Article XXXI..)

As Christ Church register (Middlesex Co., VA) does not record the birth of his three older children, Alice, Mary and Ann, Thomas Lee may have lived somewhere else before coming to Middlesex.

That he was literate, as was his son, Charles, that he was a modest property owner, and that in the county records his name was associated with the leading members of the county would indicate that he was a respected citizen. From 1662 to the filing of his will in 1709 he appears many times in the records of the county. The more important ones are here given:

Middlesex County Wills and Inventories: 1673-1812 show Charles Lee probated the will of his father, Thomas Lee. The will was made March 1709 and was proved July 13, 1709.

The Family of Thomas Lee

Middlesex County Wills and Inventories: 1673-1812, p. 222, (Hopkins pg. 50). The will of Thomas Lee was dated February 13, 1709, proved March 6, 1709. In it he mentions his wife Elizabeth, son Charles, daughters Mary Jones and Ann Gardner, grandson Thomas Lee to whom he left the plantation bought of Anthony Slaughter, grandson Charles Lee and granddaughter Elizabeth Mullins, daughter of William Mullins, dec. His son Charles was executor and the witnesses were John Owen, Elizabeth Mullins and Ringing Gardner.

The births and marriages of Alice Lee, Mary Lee and Ann Lee are not recorded in the Christ Church Register. Mary Lee was the wife of William Jones whose will is on record in Middlesex dated March 6, 1709. (P224). His estate comprised about 300 acres. They left descendants. She married Thomas Warwick second and had children.

Ann Lee was the wife of William Gardner and the family was established in the county. They had descendants.

Elizabeth Lee daughter Thomas and Elizabeth Lee born in l677/8. Christ Church Register says she was baptized Aug. 11, 1678. She married William Mullins and left descendents.

In correspondence with Wendell Ware from Indianapolis, IN, a descendant of both the Daniel and Ware families of Middlesex Co, VA, Pamela Lee Cranston has been able to pin point fairly well where the Lee plantation was in Middlesex Co. Looking at a 1989 map of Middlesex County, the Lee property lay just west of state rt. 17, where the road forks at Jamaica, at point #711 on the map. The Lee farm was between the Daniel's and Ware farms. Route 17 in Middlesex County runs from the top of the county southeast down to Stingray Point.

After studying old deeds, Wendell Ware wrote on 5/22/2000, "When going south on Rt. 17 you will come to a second church on the map - the Daniel farm is just past it, about a half mile west of Jamaica. I saw the old house before they tore it down. Quoting from Deed Book 2, pg. 75-77, Samuel Ware bought property from William Owen in 1792, beginning at Ralph Watts corner on Briery Swamp on Robert Daniel's line then S 63 degrees and E 69 poles to the corner of Daniel and Charles Lee's line. This would indicate that the Lee plantation was on or near Rt. 17, east ot the Daniel's farm, closer to Jamaica. The Montague farm is south of them. What is important here is to remember that the Daniel farm is on the main road, Rt. 17 and it goes along both sides of the road. Most of it is on the the west and south side of Jamaica, which was named after the first Daniel plantation established by Capt. William Daniel in 1669. In the Lee deeds, if they refer to the main road, they are most likely referring to Rt. 17."

3 "Cousin Alvin from Arkansas" He was a designer Los Angeles Furniture. He moved to California in the 30's (lived in Richmond) and used to visit Ray Mendenhall but rarely visited J.F.

According to Sue Fecko Cumpston when she was a little girl and stayed a lot with her grandparents, Alvin lived there also. He never married and was such a nice man and loved to square dance. He was always on the go everywhere and traveled a lot to visit family. He was about the only one that kept in touch with all the family.

Research: Ruie Mendenhall says Alvin died in December 1973. He died of lung cancer.

4 "Jonathan Whitney was born in Mendon, in that part subsequently Milford, Mass., and soon after his marriage in 1761, moved to Conway, where he resided until 1782. With his son, Joel, he went in 1789 to Ontario Co., N.Y., cut a stock of hay on
the "Old Castle" farm near Geneva and put in four or five acres of wheat, put up a log house 18 feet square and roofed it up with bark, and returned home to Conway in the fall. In 1791 with his family he moved to the "Old Castle" farm with ox
teams and were some seventeen days on the road.
Jonathan was in the Revolutionary War and was at the seige of Ticonderoga. The trees around the fort had been felled to allow the guns to be used. One tree, however, remained upright, against which another had fallen in a slanting direction. He
climbed into the crotch of the upright tree and fired into the fort, a party under the tree loading guns and handing them up to him. It was some time before he was discovered and driven away by the garrison."
He began his miltary career during the Lexington Alarm on 22 April 1775 as a Sergeant. In May of 1776 he was a 1st Lieutenant. In June of 1780 he was made a Captain of the 7th Co., 5th Regt. of the Hampshire County, Massachusetts militia.

5 "Mama Sallie" was the oldest of 14 children of William Lamentine Byers Robinson and Mary Martha "Mollie" (Huffstetler) Robinson of Gaston Co., North Carolina. She suffered a stroke in Chester, South Carolina, on April 16, 1940, immediately
after seeing "Gone With the Wind."
Research: Sallie and her children appear in the 1910 census for South Carolina. She appears again in 1920 listed as "widow of Brooks".

"Edwin Swain Balaam crossed the plains to this State with an ox team in 1853, and as an old settler of Tulare County is justly entitled to honorable mention in the history now under construction. Mr. Balaam was born in Arkansas, December 19, 1841, son of George and Sarah (Swain) Balaam, natives of England. His father was born December 4, 1805; came to the United States and first settled in Ohio, then in Kentucky, later in Arkansas and still later in Texas, coming with his family to California in 1853. He now resides in Cambria, San Luis Obispo County. Of the nine children born to him and his wife seven are living. The subject of our sketch was twelve years old when he arrived in California, and his education was obtained in Tulare County. He was married in 1863 to Miss Madora M. Glass, a native of Texas, and a daughter of Robert Glass, who came to California in 1853. Four children have been born to them, all in Tulare County, namely: Emma, wife of W. G. Davis; Albert S., Walter J. and Charles Frederick. In 1865 Mr. Balaam located 160 acres of land adjoining the farm on which he now resides. He improved it and lived on it ten years, after which he sold out and in 1875 built the Farmersville Hotel, which he conducted four years. He then removed to Tulare and built the Pacific Hotel, leasing it soon afterward and coming to his present location. His home place consists of eighty acres of choice land, which he has improved by planting and building and on which he is engaged in grain, fruit and stock-farming. Mr. Balaam was in early life a Democrat, but in later years espoused the cause of temperance and is now a Prohibitionist. He is one of the worthy and reliable settlers of the county, and takes pride in its welfare and growth.

7 "Pioneer Peiter" came to America on the ship "Robert and Alice" out of Dublin, Ireland, arriving on 11 Sep 1738. The English Quakers of Pennsylvania resented the influx of Germans and forced them to take an oath of loyalty to King George II. Peiter did this upon his arrival. He was a member of the Committee of Safety in 1748 and served in Captain Samuel Corbin's company during the "Spanish Alarm" the same year. Peiter and Cathrine lived two years in Pennsylvania in either Berks or Lancaster Co., and then moved on to Frederick, Maryland for several years. The better land having been taken, they packed their possessions into covered wagons and traveled south, through the Shenandoah Valley, into Bladen Co., North Carolina (now Gaston Co.) Heyl, Peiter (I11)

16 (Notes from Pamela Cranston)

According to the Peter Montague Family genealogy p. 189.

"Richard Dabbs Montague had a military turn of mind from a young boy. He studied hard and studies medicine. he went to New Orleans in 1834 and began a business there. In 1837, he joined the militia of New Orleans and in 1837 went with his regiment to Florida to fight the Seminole Indians. After the treaty of 1839, while on his way home from Tampa Bay to new orleans, he was kiled by a fly wheel of a steamer. He was observing its mechanism and being naturally near-sighted stood too close to it and was instantly killed. He was of a gay and lively disposition yet tender and gentle-hearted as a woman. He was greatly loved by his comrades in arms and deeply lamented by all who knew him." 
Montague, Richard Dabbs (I8730)
 
17 (Notes from Pamela Cranston)

According to the Peter Montague Family Genealogy p. 189. The Rev. Abraham Montague and his wife Jane Lee Montague were both drowned at the same time about the year 1825 while on their way to attend an evening meeting while crossing Moratico Creek which divides Richmond Co. from Lancaster Co., just north of Montague Island. They were crossing the creek in a boat that proved to be too heavily loaded. The boat capsized. Mr. Montague was an expert swimmer and could have saved himself and his wife but she frantically seized and clung to him, making it impossible for him to use his arms. They were both buried in the same coffin. 
Montague, Abraham (I8725)
 
18 (Notes from Pamela Cranston)

Before the civil War, the Day girls were known as the 'richest young ladies in Georgia'. Their father, Judge Joseph Day of Macon, GA was the speaker of the House of Representatives of Georgia. He married his wife, Mary Ann Hampton, rather late in life; he died soon after the war. The ravages of the Civil War left his wife and daughters much poorer and sometime late, they moved to Staunton, VA near Staunton Military Academy and now what is Mary Baldwin College.

They established a boarding house to make ends meet and it was during this period that she met and married Richard Buffon Lee.

Great grandmother Mary Ann Hampton Day entrusted all of the family's money, or what was left of it, to Grandfather Richard B. Lee, true to the custom of the time, because they thought men knew best about these things. Eventually, it was all gone, through ostentaious living and poor business acumen. By the time their children, Ronald and Mary, were old enough to work, they were the main support of the family. Joseph Day Lee, who had done exceptionally well in school, attended Richmond College at 14, continued through Law School at Columbia Univeristy, and graduated at 21, thanks to his silblings Ronald and Mary. Mary herself was able to go to Columbia Teacher's College, where Abigail Stout Howell was a student, and Mary introduced her to Joseph Day Lee.

Charles Lee son of Phillip and Ann Montague Lee married Clarissa Montague, dau. of William S. Montague, and had sons, Charles Henry Lee and John Lee. (See Montague Book.)

Pamela Lee Cranston (in 2000) owns an original document of a Middlesex County Indenture, 1811, between Charles Lee and Clarissa his wife & Phillip Montague referencing "Forty-eight acres, on the north side of the main county road bordering the land of Capt. Robert Daniels." Signed by "Charles Lee & Clarissa H. Lee" and witnessed and signed by "William S. Montague, Samuel Ware, Abrm Montague, Phillip Lee."

1811 Land Deed Document:

"This Indenture made this seventeenth day of March in the yeare of our Lord Eighteen hundred and Eleven between Charles Lee and Clarissa his wife of the county of Middlesex and state of Virginia of the one part and Philip Montague of the county and state afore mentioned of the other part.

Charles Lee, (some LDS files list him as John Charles LEE), son of Thomas and Elizabeth Lee, was born March 23rd 1683/4 and died Jany. 6th 1720. He was buried on Jany 9, 1720. (Christ Church Register, pg. 178.)

Middlesex County Wills and Inventories: 1673-1812, Will Book B 1713-1734, part 1, pg. 179. (Hopkins, pg. 59): Will of Charles Lee... 16 Mar 1718/7 Mar 1720... Sons John Lee, Charles Lee, and Thomas Lee. Wife Dorothy Lee. Exors: Son george Lee, wife (Dorothy), and sons Thomas Lee and John Lee. Wit: Thomas Russell, Ann Russell and George Stapleton.

Christ Church Register does not give the birth date of Thomas; but it was prior to 1709 because he was mentioned in the will of his grandfather, Thomas Lee, as is also Charles. Christ Church Register gives the birth dates of the children of Charles and Dorothy Lee as follows:
Charles born May 30th. 1708 died Aug 20th 1715
John born Aug. 28th 1712.
George born April 26th. 1715
Charles born Feb. 8th 1718 (This second Charles was evidently named to take the place of the Charles who had died three years before.)

Charles Lee, who died at thirty-seven, left very meager records. They are as follows. Middlesex Order Book XII-1705 -1710-P 278. Feb. 7th. 1709. John Brame vs. Charles Lee. Action for assault, (case dismissed. P. 284.) XII-280. Mar. 6th. 1709 Hannah Provert Adm. estate of her husband, William Probart. Charles Lee and Henry Goodloe, security.

XII-281 - March 8th. 1709/10 Exec. estate of father, Thomas Lee.

Alice Sylvester (Silvester) appears to have been a poor, invalid widow under the care of parish relief. The rector of Christ Church at that time was the Rev. Bartholomew Yates. His son, Thomas Lee was also paid 1,000 lbs tobacco in 1714 for keeping Alice Sylvester as was Richard Winn, the same amount, for keeping her in 1705 and 1708. Christ Church Vestry Book, Middlesex Co., VA, p. 142: In 1715, 500 lbs tobacco to Charles Lee for keeping Alice Sylvester for 6 months. In Oct. 1715, 700 lbs. tobacco to Charles Lee for Keeping Alice Sylvester for 4 months and for her burial. Christ Church Regristry records (pg. 84) show that Alice Silvester died January 6, and was buried January 8, 1714.

Lee, Charles (I8514)
 
21 (Notes from Pamela Cranston)

Charles Lee: Fourth son of Charles and Dorothy Lee to have issue. He was born according to Christ Church Register, Feb. 8th, 1718. His will on file in Middlesex County is dated May 31st. 1791 &and was probated June 25th, 1792. It does not mention a wife; but names children, Charles Lee, Phil1ip Lee and daughters, Penny Daniel and Fanny McTyre of Lancaster Co., and grandson Lewis Lee. His son Charles Lee was made executor. Wit: Thomas Brooks, Ann Brooks, Robert Daniel, Mary Faron and Reuben Lee.

There are a great many Middlesex records referring to Charles Lee. According to Christ Church Register, he married Penelope Cheney Jany. 24th. 1737/8. There is no record of her death. She was the daughter of Thomas Cheney and Jane Sweepstone stone who according to Christ Church Register were married June 16th. 1711. Also according to the Register Penelope was born to Thomas and Jane Cheney Aug. 6th. 1721.

(Further data of the Cheney family is given later. There is no other reference to the Swepstone family in Christ Church Register and Swemm's Index does not mention the name. It may be misspelled in this reference.)

Christ Church Register gives the names of children born to Charles and Penelope Lee with certain of their death dates as follows:

Elizabeth b. 2/l2/l738/9. d. 3/23/1739
Catherine b. 3/12/1740.
Jane b. 6/20/1743. d. 9/5/1743.
Isaac. b. 10/27/1744.
George. b. (C. C. Reg. P. 298. Partly obliterated date of 17- - . Would approximate 1748)
Charles. b. 11/5/1758.

(There are about twelve years missing from the Christ Church Register which might account for the missing dates and the record of the other children mentioned in the will).

Proof of identity of Charles Lee.

George Lee was certainly the son of Charles Lee and Dorothy Lee. His mother died in his house and his wife, Mary Budford Lee probated her will. Charles Lee was the executor of his estate. Charles Lee who married Penelope Cheney was the same as the above. His signature on a deed of real estate in which Penelope Lee joins him made 12/15/1747, is the same as that on his will as is that on the marriage bond of Elizabeth Aldin, widow, dated Sept. 3rd. 1765 to John George, gent. In which he is designated as Charles Lee, gent. Elizabeth Aldin was daughter of George and Mary Buford Lee who had married John Aldin Dec. 7th. 1762. Her father was dead at that time and her uncle Charles went on her marriage bond. Also the tax records of Middlesex county for this period contain no other Charles Lee but Charles Lee, Jr.

According to the records Charles Lee was a prosperous and respected planter. His plantation was about seven hundred acres and he had some thirty slaves. Some of them with land he gave to his children before his death. He was road commissioner for the county and tobacco inspector. Also patroller of Christ Church, whose duty it was to see that the members attended or to fine them if they did not. In various legal papers he was associated many times with John Greenwood, William Daniel, Lewis Montague, Robert and Garret Daniel, John Blakeley, Massey Yarrington, Josiah Chowning, Phillip Latane, William Segar and William and Phillip Montague. All of them prominent citizens of the county.

Christ Church Vestry Book: p. 299: mentions Charles Lee, patroller, 1756 -1758, paid 32 lbs. of tobacco each of those years.

Christ Church Parish register, Middlesex Co., VA: p. 96: John Owen and Hannah Probert ye 20th of April 1710.

Some researchers think she would have been too young to be a daughter of William and Hannah so must be a sister. I believe Walter Probert in the same time frame might be a brother to William.

Dorothy Henry Lee, wife of Charles Lee. After the death of Charles she married Thomas Cheney, father of her daughter-in-law, and moved to Essex County, Sept. 30th 1731. Thomas Cheney died before Aug. 1734 (Iv-30) July 2nd. 1734 Dorothy Cheney petitions to administer the estate of Thomas Chaney. Wm. Gardner and Thomas Lee, security. See for further Chaney connections under Chaney Family. At the time of her death she was living with the widow of her son George. (Will Book Middlesex 1675-1798 1) 267)

Dorothy Lee must have been quite a person., and it is to be hoped that her family line will be established some time in the future. She married two prosperous planters and while following the persistent idea that women loose their charm when educated, she signed her name with her mark. It was a whopping Big D and shows character. Three of her signatures have been discovered, one of them on the will of John Mullins. (Middlesex Will Book 1713-1734 P. 74) Dorothy Lee was the widow of Charles Lee (b. 3/23/1683/84) and mother of Charles Lee (b. 2/8/1718) who married Penelope Cheney, daughter of her second husband, Thomas Cheney. After their marriage, they moved to Essex Co., Va, Sept. 30, 1731.

Information about the Jeffries/Tuggle family comes from Robert Jeffries e-mail:
rjffres@charter.net. He said all the Jeffries children of William and Esther Lee Jeffries died in Georgia. Most of their descendents are still in Georgia (in 2001) but some have moved to Alabama and Texas.
