This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Please contact the project sponsor, Carole Partridge, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc.
The Name Lee
- The name Lee is the 188th most common surname in the world. There are several distinct origins of the Lee surname. The most common is derived from Old English lēah, meaning a meadow or forest clearing. This developed variously into the surnames Lee, Lea, and Leigh. The Lees of Category:Shropshire were notable as the forebears of the colonial American Lee family which produced Richard Henry Lee, Robert E. Lee, and Zachary Taylor.

Sub-Category - Lee
There is a sub-category for Lee Category: Lees, Lee Name Study which has been established to cater for those Lees and relatives born in or around the 1400's to about the 1800's. This sub-category also has links to various sites with information and bios. If you have a relative born around that time, please feel free to add them to that page.
