    • (Notes from Pamela Cranston)

      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.

      Deed Book 3, 1703-1709, Middlesex co VA; Filmed at VSL by GSUT 12 May 1947 (Film 0032445). Very difficult to read, much ink bleeding: p 220
      "Know all men by these presents that Hannah Provert, Charles Lee and Henry Goodloe of Middlesex county are held and firmely bound unto Matthew Kemp, gent, first in Commission of the of the peace for the said County his heires, Executors, administrators and assignees for in behalf and to the [?] and behalfe of the Justices belonging to the Court of the said County their Executors, admins, and assigns and [?] [?] in the sum of three hundred pounds sterl." This bond was posted 6 Mar 1709 and the conditions of the obligation were that the above Hannah Provert, assigned? Of the late William Provert, dec'd made inventory of the goods, chatells and credits of the estate of the deceased.
      Signed: Hannah H Probert
      Chas Lee
      Henry Goodlow

      XII-1710-1721 P52-Oct. 2nd. 1711 William Gardner ordered to pay Charles Lee as witness in case vs. John Southern.

      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.

      XIII-263-Dec. 6th. 1715. Charles Lee sworn as grand juror.

      XIII-514 - March 7th. 1720 Joseph Hardee, John Southern, Thomas Cheney and Robert George to appraise estate of Charles Lee. Dorothy to appear and make oath of inventory. The children surviving at the time of Charles Lee's will and the children born to Charles and Dorothy Lee according to Christ Church Register, were: Thomas (no birth date) His will was filed in 1753
      John, born Aug. 28th,1712.
      George born April. 26th,1715
      Charles born Feb. 8th 1718. [1]
