My aunt did the research for our family and cites this book as proof of the following: Thomas Lee (b. 06 Feb 1710/11 in Bridgetown Barbados, m, Mary Giles 01 Apr 1733, d. 07 Aug 1769 in Charleston, SC) is the son of Francis Lee, the son of Harry Lee, the son of Sir Robert Lee, Mayor of London 1602 - 1603. Sir Robert is the son of Humphrey Lee, b. in Bridgenorth Salop. I have information on a Humphrey Lee that gives his line back to the 1100s but have not proven this to be the same Humphrey at this point.
