Henry Lee II (1730–1787) of Alexandria, Westmoreland, Virginia Colony was the father of Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee III and grandfather of Robert E. Lee.

Lee was the third son of Capt. Henry Lee I (1691–1747) of “Lee Hall”, Westmoreland County, and his wife, Mary Bland (1704–1764), the daughter of Hon. Richard Bland, Sr. (1665–1720) and his second wife, Elizabeth Randolph (1685–1719).

Lee was born at “Lee Hall” in 1729, settled in Prince William County, living at “Leesylvania”, near the town of Dumfries. He served as a Justice of the Peace in that county and first in commission. In addition he was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1758, where he served on and off until 1772. He was a member of the Virginia Convention from 1774-1776. Lee served as County Lieutenant for Prince William, and was active in the duties of that office during the Revolution. Henry Lee II also served as a member of the State Senate in 1780. Henry’s will was dated August 10, 1787, and was probated in Prince William County on October 1 of the same year.
