(21 Feb 1620/21 - 06 Oct 1706)
arrived in Jamestown in 1639 upon the same voyage as her husband Richard Lee I. The daughter of Francis Constable and Alice Owen, was sent to the Colony of Virginia by her parents as a ward of Sir Francis Wyatt by appointment of the King. The history of Anne's family and the reasoning behind her leaving her family estate in England can be concluded as an attempt to save her from the immediate danger of the plague that had already taken the lives of many of her siblings. Being the eldest daughter of the Constables and that her only surviving brother at that time had to stay behind to care for the estate, her parents decided to send her away from the threat. Shortly after her departure, her parents and brother succumb to the illness that had taken the lives of so many in Europe during this century. During her marriage to Richard, Anne was able to send for two of her sisters to join them in Virginia.

(c. 1690–November 14, 1750) was a leading political figure of colonial Virginia. He was a member of the Lee family, a political dynasty which included many figures from the pre-Revolutionary War era until the late 20th century. Lee became involved in politics in 1710 and he became the resident manager of the Northern Neck Proprietary for Lady Catherine Fairfax. After his father died he inherited land in Northumberland and Charles County. Lee later acquired vast holdings in what are now Arlington, Fairfax, Fauquier, Prince William, and Loudoun Counties.
When Lee married Hannah Harrison Ludwell in 1722, he also associated himself with the already established Harrison family. A year later he would become a member of the House of Burgesses. After Lee's home was burnt down by criminals, he lost almost all of his possessions and a fair sum of money. With monetary donations he received from Caroline of Ansbach and English Commissioners, he built his new home on the Potomac River, naming it Stratford Hall. Four years later in 1733, he was appointed to the Governor's Council of the House of Burgesses. In 1747, he founded the Ohio Company of Virginia with fellow Virginian colonists who wished to expand Virginia's territory into the Ohio River Valley. For a period of less than a year, in 1749, he became the de facto Governor of Virginia in place of the absent William Gooch. George II was going to officially appoint him governor, but Lee's death in 1750 precluded the appointment.
