te Keeper
of the Records in the Duchy of Lancaster, who devoted much
time and trouble to the history of the Shropshire Lees, makes
Margaret Astley's husband to be son, not to Sir John, but to
his brother. Sir Thomas de Lee of Okehirst. He is described
as Roger "Lee of Coton, Gentelman" (Lord Treasurer's
Rem. Mem. 6 Heney V.) and as " second son of Sir Thomas Lee
Knight" (Harl. MSS. 2163, fol. 40 b.). It is certain from
Inquisitions and other evidence that his name was Roger,
not Robert, and that Itoger the husband of Joan Burnell was
not his son ; and also that Petronilla was dau., not dau. -in-
law to Roger Lee and Joan Burnell. She m. her kinsman

Colonel 3rd Batt. Oxfordshire Light Lifantry, b.
16 Sept. 1843 ; s. to the entailed estates of his
paternal uncle, John Lee, Esq., LL.D., 1866.

Lineage. — it is stated that this family, one of great
antiquity, is an off-shoot of Lee, or Legh, of High Legh and
Lyme, co. Chester, and that it has held its present estates
from about 1268 through an uninterrupted succession.
Browne Willis, in his MS., written more than a century ago,
says that very few can show, for su long a series, viz., upwards





of 500 years, such an unbroken possession of an estate, which
has never lieen alienated otherwise than as it has passed in
marriage by failure of male issue, wherefore it may be said to
continue in the same family. For further account of the
pedigree, see 3^des Hartwelliana, by Capt. Smith, E.S.F.,
D.C.L., and F.R.S., or Lipscomb's History of the County of
