      THE FALSE NOBLE PEDIGREE OF
      COLONEL RICHARD LEE OF VIRGINIA
      By Walter Lee Sheppard, Jr.
      Havertown, Pennsylvania

      The entire connection of Col. Richard Lee with the alleged royal and Magna Charta lines rests on the Astley-Harbourt marriage ....

      The evidences for placing Col. Richard Lee in the above pedigree are cited in The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography v. 62, pp. 4-14, and in The Genealogist's' Magazine (London), v. 13 pp. 333:34.

      A TRUE ROYAL AND MAGNA CARTA ANCESTRAL LINE
      FOR COL. RICHARD LEE OF VIRGINIA
      By Walter Lee Sheppard, Jr.
      Havertown, Pennsylvania

      In an earlier issue of this publication the writer demonstrated that the generally accepted noble lineage of Col. Richard Lee of Virginia was false and suggested that the investigation of the Blount wife's ancestry might yield a substitute line of interest. Through the courtesy of Mrs. Orien L. Cain of Delray Beach, Fla., who financed the investigation, the author is now able to offer a pedigree that provides Royal, crusader and Magna Carta ancestors, though it does not supply a Surety of the Magna Carta nor a Knight of either the Bath or the Garter. It is possible that further research on the antecedents of others of the wives in the pedigree may yield further lines of comparable interest.
      At least one Magna Carta society has accepted the following line and the services of Ellis Giffard. The most famous Crusader in the pedigree was Richard, Earl of Cornwall, King of the Romans, who served in the Holy Land in 1241

      THE PARENTAGE OF
      COLONEL RICHARD LEE THE EMIGRANT
      By Grace McLean Moses
      McLean, Virginia

      The matter of the birthplace and parentage of Colonel Richard Lee, the ancestor of one of our most well-known lines in Virginia, is one which has puzzled genealogists in this country and in England for nearly one hundred years. Many speculations and solutions have been brought forth, but not one of them has been able to state definitely, with documentation, who was the father of Richard Lee

      the tombstone of Richard the Emigrant's eldest son, Richard Lee, inscribed after his death in 1714, states that he was the "son of Richard Lee, Gent., descended from an ancient family of Merton Regis in Shropshire."

      The introduction to the Oswestry Parish Register, volume 1 (1558-1664), reads: "The undivided mother parish of Oswestry, with which these Registers deal, covered an area of 17,418 acres, which were comprised in the Town and Liberties, and the fifteen townships of Middleton, Crickheath, Aston, Hisland, Wooten, Treflach, Morton, Sweeney, West Cotton, Maesbury, Llanforda, Cynynion, Pentregaer and Trefonen; but in 1842 the daughter parishes of Holy Trinity and Trefonen were carved out of it and other townships were assigned to the consolidated parishes of Thydycroesau in 1844 and Morton in 1861." This verifies that there was a town of Morton within the Parish of Osweatry (where the baptismal record of a Richard Lee was found) at the time that the Emigrant could very well have been baptized; hence, the record should have been in the Oswestry Parish register. Here we have a Richard Lee, born in 1608, whose baptism was recorded in the very parish from which the Emigrant stated he came!

      Here we have a man of the correct name, at the proper place, at the proper time, which, from a genealogical standpoint and in the absence of absolute documentation, would appear to be sufficient proof. There are, however, numerous other facts and deductions which serve to authenticate the fact that this Richard Lee, baptized in 1608 at Morton, is indeed the Emigrant.

      The father of Richard Lee was probably the one who died in 1627, as Thomas Lee the Draper died in 1618 and the other Thomas Lee who died in 1628 spelled his name Leey. With such a paucity of records to deal with after nearly three hundred and fifty years it is surprising that we have as much information as we have. At this point it seems impossible to trace further the background of Richard Lee, son of Thomas Lee, corser.

      THE PROBLEM OF RICHARD LEE'S PARENTAGE
      By Ludwell Lee Montague, Ph.D.
      President of the Society of the Lees of Virginia
      Arlington, Virginia
      In the October, 1969, number of The Virginia Genealogist there appears an article by Grace McLean Moses purporting to prove that the Richard Lee who came to Virginia in 1639 was the Richard Lee baptized at Moreton near Oswestry in Shropshire in 1608. Analysis of that article reveals that its "proof" of this identification depends entirely on an unproved assumption that this village of Moreton (sometimes rendered Morton) must have been the "Morton Regis" named in the inscription on the silver cup that John Lee presented to Queen's College, Oxford, in 1658

      The present article will show that this assumption that Moreton was "Morton Regis" was made on the basis of inadequate research and fanciful supposition, in disregard of positive evidence to the contrary. It will also show the pertinent evidence relating to the problem of Richard Lee's origin and the conclusions that can be drawn from it at this time.

      On the basis of the available evidence, there can be no doubt that the Richard Lee who came to Virginia in 1639 was a Lee of Coton.

      The absence of a baptismal record at Alveley suggests that Richard Lee was born elsewhere

      The Society of the Lees of Virginia has engaged the services of a genealogist well recommended by the College of Arms to search further in England regarding the parentage of Richard Lee. If and when a conclusion based on real evidence is forthcoming, that will be duly reported.
