Title: Ancestral Roots Of Sixty Colonists Who Came To New England Between 1623 And 1650 Author: Weis, Frederick Lewis Publication: Genealogical Publishing Co. Inc., 1992


"The long accepted ancestry of Richard Lee, the emigrant, which until recently has shown his English ancestor as Richard Lee of Coton, was challenged by the American genealogist William Thornedale who published his findings in 1988 which pointed to an ancestor, John Lyes, from Worcester. (4)


Thornedale's Ancestry for Richard Lee.


Thornedale suggests that the 1666 will of John Best of Twining, near Worcester, gives the vital clue to the ancestry of Richard Lee. This will left bequests to many uncles, aunts and cousins of John Best who was the grandson of Edward Hancock of Twining, near Worcester. The will included a bequest to Richard and Francis, the sons of Colonel Richard Lea whom Thornedale identifies as the emigrant Colonel Richard Lee of Virginia who had died several years earlier. (5) The rest of Thornedale's article centres on the family and descendants of Edward Hancock of Twining. He shows that one of Edward's daughters was Jane Hancock who married John Lyes, a clothier or weaver, from Worcester. (6)John and Jane had four children, Richard, John, Edward and Thomas who were all baptised at Worcester St Martin between 1616 and 1622. This Richard Lyes was identified by Thornedale as Richard Lee who emigrated to America and became Colonel Richard Lee, Secretary of State for Virginia, ancestor to Robert E. Lee. Thornedale's argument for this Worcester ancestry hinges on three suppositions. That this Richard Lyes was Colonel Richard Lee. That the Colonel Lee, mentioned in the will of John Best of Twining in 1666, was Colonel Richard Lee, the emigrant. That Hancock Lee, the emigrant's son, was named after his grandmother's maiden name.


I have looked at references to Colonel Lee in contemporary archives and have found mention of two who were in England within the period to 1666. The first was a Colonel Lee who was in the garrison at Worcester when it surrendered to Parliament in 1646, a Sir Robert Lee was also there. Of this Colonel Lee I have found no other information. (7) The second was Colonel Richard Lee of Great Delce, Kent, who was born in 1617 the son of Richard Lee MP., whose family had held that manor for some generations and who boasted among his ancestors Sir Edward Lee, Archbishop of York, and Sir Richard Lee, knight, twice mayor of the City of London. This Colonel Richard Lee died in 1652 and had a son Richard and daughters Frances and Jane. (8) Maybe one of these was the Colonel Lee mentioned in the will of John Best or maybe Colonel Richard Lee of Virginia was the one mentioned, I haven't found an indisputible link between John Best and Colonel Richard Lee so I can't tell.


I have extensively researched the family of Edward Hancock of Twining and have found no mention of the emigrant Colonel Richard Lee or his family. There is no evidence pointing back from the emigrant Lee family, other than the name Hancock, to the Worcester family of John Lyes. There is no mention of Jane Hancock and John Lyes or their children in any document that I have found so far concerning the Lee family of America. Thornedale's article gives details of the Hancock and Lyes family and their business connections in London but does not connect them directly to Richard Lee, the emigrant. He assumes that Colonel Richard Lee, mentioned in John Best's will, is the emigrant Richard Lee. Even if the person referred to in the will was our Colonel Richard Lee there is still a large leap of faith to attribute him as the son of John Lyes of Worcester. Some branches of the Hancock and Best family were, or became, wealthy as is shown by their wills, but John Lyes was just a poor weaver. Richard Lee, the emigrant, was at home in a circle of armigerous gentlemen and peers of the realm. He was appointed as clerk to the court but rose swiftly to become Secretary of State. He married Anne Constable, a ward of Sir Francis Wyatt the new Governor of Virginia. To do all these things he must have been well educated and have a family who could afford to send him to school at one of the Inns of Court in London where he would have obtained the necessary qualifications to ensure his future.


My research into the family of John Lyes of Worcester has yielded an extensive family tree with supporting evidence which shows that John married Jane Hancock on 13th February 1616 at St Andrews, Worcester. (6) They did indeed have four sons, John in 1616, Richard on 22nd March 1618, Edward who died young, and Thomas on 29th May 1622, all baptised at St Martins, Worcester. (10) John Lyes, the father, was buried in 1629.and was probably baptised on 12th July 1590 at Worcester St Helens, being the son of John Lyes and Ales Harte. They were married at Worcester All Saints on 12th November 1589. The Worcester Clothiers Company list of apprentices shows that in 1604 John Lyes, clothier, took Richard Heming as an apprentice. (11) Thus both John Lyes, the father of Richard, and his father John were clothiers or weavers in Worcester. The will of John Harte, millner of All Saints, Worcester in 1578 names his daughter Ales, she was baptised at All Saints, Worcester on 30th April 1563. (12)


The corruption of the Lyes family name to Lee, accepted easily by Thornedale, is one which I find difficult to accept. I have spoken to people from Worcester with that name and they pronounce their name as I would expect, as when one lyes down on a bed, this cannot easily be interpreted as Lee."
