Information on Hancock Lee

There are conflicting reports on the number of wives of Hancock Lee. Some sources indicate that he had two wives (Mary Kendall, Sarah Allerton); others cite three (Martha Burwell, Mary Kendall, Sarah Allerson). Additional research and sources are needed to determine which is correct.


The following source shows Hancock Lee as the father of Anne Lee that married Maj. William Armistead, but does not identify her mother:

From "The Armistead Family: 1635-1910", by Virginia Armistead Garber, pg. 24, pub. 1910:

John's (Armistead's) two sons, William and Henry, also must have been men of high character and loveable qualities to have won the love of such wives as they had - Anna Lee, the daughter of Hancock Lee; and Martha Burwell, choosing Henry Armistead in spite of the fierce, lordly wooing of the explosive Governor Nicholson, and the devotion of the fearless Parson, Fouace, and a host of others.

Note: perhaps the refence of Hancock Lee, followed by Martha Burwell was mis-interpreted by some researchers to mean his wife?


From Genforum.com post:

Hancock Lee, 7th son of Richard the emigrant, actually had 3 wives. Mary Kendall was the second of these. The first was Martha Burwell, the third was Sarah Allerton.
