Within this enclosure was buried

~ Richard Lee ~

of an ancient family of Nordley Regis in Shropshire, who emigrated from London to Virginia in 1639. He was successively clerk of the quarter court at Jamestown, Attorney General of Virginia, Secretary of State, and a member of the council. Having long traded with the nearby Wicomico Indians, in 1656 he established his home on Dividing Creek, at a point 400 feet to the Northeast of this stone. He died there in 1664 and was buried here in his garden.

Also buried within this enclosure were
:: Anne Constable, the wife of Richard Lee;
:: their son, Charles Lee (1656-1701), and
:: his wife Elizabeth Medstand;
:: their son, Charles Lee of Cobbs Hall (1684-1734); and
:: his son, Charles Lee (1722-1747), and his wives,
:: Mary Lee of Ditchley and
:: Leeanna Jones of Hickory Neck.

In 1761 this Leeanna Lee ordered the erection of the original enclosing wall. Later members of the Cobbs Hall family, Lees and Harveys, were buried nearby outside the wall.

~ Erected by The Society of the Lees of Virginia ~ 1958
