Christ Church Register does not give the birth date of Thomas; but it was prior to 1709 because he was mentioned in the will of his grandfather, Thomas Lee, as is also Charles. Christ Church Register gives the birth dates of the children of Charles and Dorothy Lee as follows:
Charles born May 30th. 1708 died Aug 20th 1715
John born Aug. 28th 1712.
George born April 26th. 1715
Charles born Feb. 8th 1718 (This second Charles was evidently named to take the place of the Charles who had died three years before.)
Charles Lee, who died at thirty-seven, left very meager records. They are as follows. Middlesex Order Book XII-1705 -1710-P 278. Feb. 7th. 1709. John Brame vs. Charles Lee.

Alice Sylvester (Silvester) appears to have been a poor, invalid widow under the care of parish relief. The rector of Christ Church at that time was the Rev. Bartholomew Yates. His son, Thomas Lee was also paid 1,000 lbs tobacco in 1714 for keeping Alice Sylvester as was Richard Winn, the same amount, for keeping her in 1705 and 1708. Christ Church Vestry Book, Middlesex Co., VA, p. 142: In 1715, 500 lbs tobacco to Charles Lee for keeping Alice Sylvester for 6 months. In Oct. 1715, 700 lbs. tobacco to Charles Lee for Keeping Alice Sylvester for 4 months and for her burial. Christ Church Regristry records (pg. 84) show that Alice Silvester died January 6, and was buried January 8, 1714.
