Laineagre. — The family of Lee of Langley and of Coton
Hall, Shropshire, now represented by WiUiam Blackstone Lee,
Esq.. is stated in Borke's Extinct Baronetcies (Humphrey Lee
was created a baronet in 1620, being the first Shropshire
Baronet), to be one of the oldest in England.* It is said to be
of Saxon origin ; and Eyton who gives Reyner de Lea, in the
year 1195, as the first of the name known to him, gives also
an unbroken descent through the Stantons of Stanton Hinch-
heath, from the year 1086 {Eyton, vii, 273-4). The pedigree
certified by William Dugdale, Norroy King-of-Arms, and testi-
fied by Sir Humphrey Lee of Langley in 1623, and Thomas Lee
of Coton in 166:3, begins with Hugo de Lega, a contemporary
of Reyner de Lea, whose son Reginald de la Lee, received a
grant of lands from William, son of William FitzAlan, ad
petitionera Fulconis filii Warini, and had a son Sir John de la
Lee, who was living in the year 1298, and received a grant of
lands from Hugo de Hinton. Sir John was a. by his son. Sir
Thomas de la Lee (30 Ed. I.), who m. Petronilla, dau. of Sir
Thomas Corbet, and gave the lands of Lee Pevenhull to his
eldest son, Reginald de la Lee, by whom he was succeeded,
leaving also a younger son, Thomas. Reginald de la Lee (14
Ed. II.) was s. by his son, Sir John de la Lee, Knt., and
lord of Roden (15 Ed. II. and I Ed. III.), who in. 1st,
Alicia (13 Ed. II.), and 2ndly, Matilda, dau. of Henry de
Erdington, and was s. by his son. Sib John db la Lee,
Knt., (32 and 33 Ed. III.), who was s. by his son, Robert
DE LA Lee (8 Rich. II.), m. Margaret, sister and
heir of Thomas Astley of Nordley, thus acquiring Coton
and merging another very ancient family in that of Lee,
the Astley descent being also given by Eyton from about
1100-1135. According to the pedigree there were two sons
of this marriage, Roger, and John, of whom presently. Roger
m. Joan, dau. and heiress of Edward Burnell of Langley,
and was s. by his son, Robert de la Lee, m. Petronilla .

The foregoing statements are derived from the registered
pedigree in the College of Arms, but there is some confusiov
in these early generations. Sir William Hardy, la
