Notes


"Now I wish to call attention to the Marriage Agreement of Judith Lee and Captain Samuel Peachey of 1749. The two witnesses of this document with whom we are most concerned were her son Kendall Lee, with whom she was undoubtedly living, and one Lucy Lee. Now the Lees were extraordinarily fond of having their own family members as witnesses to family documents. Add to this, the fact that Lucy Lee, as an unmarried daughter, would be at home with her mother. This first appearance of a Lucy Lee, with Judith Lee's son Kendall, makes one wonder, as this was a most personal document.
Then again, the Will of Judith Peachey, dated December 17, 1754 and proved on February 10, 1755, is of great interest. "Debts to be paid. Rest of estate to be equally divided between children. Mr. Samuel Blackwell and my son Kendall, Ex. Witnesses: Betty Conway, Kendall Lee, Lucy Smith and Ann Kerr." Of these four witnesses, three have been proven to be children of Judith Lee Peachey. It is my conclusion that she would not have called upon a fourth person, who was not a member of the family, to witness such a personal document as her last Will, in as much as she already had three witnesses who were her children. It is my belief that this Lucy Smith is the same person who witnesses her mother's Marriage Agreement to Captain Samuel Peachey as "Lucy Lee." In the space if time between 1749 and 1754, she had married a Smith. She is undoubtedly the seventh and last child.


At this point it should be stated that all this controversy over the "lost child" would not probably have arisen, if there were not a "gap" in the marriage records of the county of Northumberland. These marriage records are published in volume 47 of the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, page 41, as a compilation of the "Clerk's Fees for Licenses Issued." I have personally examined these Fee Books for the period involved and find there is, in truth, a gap from "Joseph Blackwell and Lucy Steptoe, January 1745" to the next entry of "Henry Berry and Winifred Haynie, March, 1756." This gap includes the dates of marriage of several of Richard Lee's daughters, including the marriage of Lucy Lee, which occurred between 1749 and 1755.
I have found still another case of Lucy Lee appearing, with members of her Lee family, in the records of Northumberland County. In the Will of Cuthbert Spann, proved November 12, 1753, one finds: "to my friend Mr. Peter Conway", and the witnesses to the codicil dated May 26, 1750 are Abraham *ivision, Anne Lee, Lucy Lee, and Edwin Conway. The Spanns and the Conways and the Lees were neighbors and friends, often inter-marrying. Mr. Peter Conway was the husband of the sister (Elizabeth) of Anne and Lucy Lee. At this date, 1750, both Anne and Lucy Lee were unmarried.
Additional research leads me to conclude that Lucy Lee married Baldwin Matthews Smith,..."


"Montague Genealogy" (Peter of Nansemond and Lancaster Counties, Virginia) by C.W. Montague, 1894. " "whose maiden name was Lucy Lee, descendants say she was a relative of Light Horse Harry Lee." He goes on to say that one of her descendants has a "Memorial Ring" with the letters "L.M." upon the side of which is engraved "died March 30, 1806, aged about 71 years." This would make Lucy Lee Smith Montague born in 1735, the last year of her father's life; undoubtedly she was his seventh and last child!"


"Lucy Lee, who married Baldwin Matthews Smith was the last of the seven children to be identified. This was accomolished by Grace McLean Moses in October, 1967. The following record is a condensation by Eleanor Lee Templeman, Secretary of the Society of the Lees of Virginia, of Mrs. Moses' more lengthy report.


Judith Lee, the widow of Richard Lee, signed a marriage contract dated February 16, 1749 (18), with "Samuel Peachey, Gent." The witnesses were John Leland, Kendall Lee, Betty Lee, and Lucy Lee. Judith was the third wife of Captain Peachey. He died October 2, 1750 (19).


As mentioned above, in the report on Ann Lee, Lucy and she were undoubtedly also daughters of Judith20, then still unmarried and living at home with their mother. It will later be shown that said Lucy's future son-in-law was the Reverend John Leland II, son of the other witness to Judith's marriage contract, John Leland. This evidences an early strong tie between the Lee and Leland families.


By the time of witnessing the will of their mother, Judith Lee Peachey in December, 1754, both of these daughters had married, as their signatures are Lucy Smith and Ann Kerr."


"The above research on Lucy Lee by Grace McLean Moses was officially accepted October 1967 by the Board of the Society of the Lees of Virginia, with grateful appreciation expressed for her fine and painstaking research which has added greatly to the genea!ogical records of the Lee family."
