I am trying to discover who Elizabeth Lee might have been. She was a widow, hence married to a Lee and had a son David Lee whom Benjamin Maple mentions in his will: "Item I give to my Son in Law David Lee the Sum of five pounds to be Levyed out of my Stock Either in Cattle or horseflesh as Shall be Adjudged by two Neighbors or Apraysors..." This is to say that there is an assumption that David is the son of Elizabeth by her first husband, but the term "son in law" is unusual when referring to a step son. There are several Lees in Burlington, NJ. One William Lee died in 1711 in Philadelphia without male heirs, another source says that "The Lees (of Burlington) are descended from one David Lee, who owned a large tract along the south side of the Assanpink Creek, near its junction with Miry Run and the Shabakonk. He had two sons, Joseph and William." There is a DAVID LEE born 04 FEB 1657Saint Peter, Sheffield, Yorkshire, England son of DAVID LEE, but I find no evidence that he came to America. The earliest Lees appear to be John Lees who who is listed in the 1695 minutes of Nottingham Township with Benjamin Maple and two Williams that may have been conflated. One William Lee appears as a servant of Godfrey Newbould of Sheffield, Yorks who arrived ca. 1678. On 15 Jan 1678/9, Godfrey Newbold of Handworth Woodhouse in the parish of Handsworth, Co. York, England, yeoman, deeded to William Lee of Burlington, West Jersey, his servent, 40 acres to be surveyed out of land assigned to him in W.J. (recorded May Day 1681). We must assume that the age of this William Lee is at least 21, therefore born 1657 or before. This land was on an island between present Burlington, NJ and Bristol, PA. Whether this was the same man who moved to Philadelphia and became a merchant is uncertain. Facts would also support the conclusion that this William Lee moved to Stony Brook, NJ with the Quaker settlement along Stony Brook and Princeton which occurred about the year 1695, and hence subsequent to that in Maidenhead, the Friends coming from the Quaker settlement in Burlington and were composed of the Clark, Worth, Olden, Horner and Stockton families. The will of William Lee in 1713 names his beloved friend, Joseph Worth.Elizabeth ____ Lee would have been a contemporary of these Lees. I am also working backwards from my ancestors William Lee and Nathaniel Donham who owned land adjoining on Ruff's Creek in Greene Co. PA. Nathaniel's son, Lewis Dunham Birth:24 Jun. 1771Place:New Jersey Death:1845Place:GreeneCo., PA Spouse: Amy Maple, daughter of Stephen and Mary Slack Maple Marriage: 1805. Is Stephen a descendant of Benjamin Maple and Elizabeth Lee? Both the Lees and Dunhams moved to Warren Co. OH. Observations or corrections appreciated.
