About meCaptain Henry Lee (1691-1747), a leading Virginian landholder of the 18th century, was the brother of Virginia politician/planter Thomas Lee (of Stratford), whose daughter Hannah Lee Corbin is also an LEA subject. Henry's wife, Mary Bland, was the daughter of Richard Bland and Elizabeth Randolph (a great-aunt of Thomas Jefferson). Henry's second son, Squire Richard Lee, inherited some if not most of his books.
