Richard Lee  was described as being a man of good Stature, comely visage, and enterprising genius, a sound head, vigorous spirit and generous nature.[xxxvi]

Richard Lee  came from Shropshire, England to Virginia where he was to become the Clerk of the Quarter Court.  On the voyage to Virginia it is thought he may have first become interested in Ann Constable , she had been brought by Sir Francis Wyatt , the 1st Royal Governor of Virginia (2nd term), as a member of his household.

In 1643, he was appointed Attorney General of Virginia.  In 1646, he was serving as Sheriff of York County, Virginia and in 1647 as a Burgess for York County.  At the age of 36 he became the Secretary of State and the principal lieutenant of Sir William Berkley .  He continued to hold public office until his death, with the exception of the period of the Cromwellian regime [1652-1660], when he along with other Royalist were deposed.

Richard was sent to perform an official duty with King  Charles I I.  He met with the King at Breda in the Netherlands.  The voyage turned quite profitable for him, he freighted a Dutch ship on his own account and brought back a return cargo to Virginia, which included 38 immigrants who were unable to pay their own passage.  In this manner he was able to obtain their services for a term of years and their headrights gave him the basis for three new land grants, which he obtained in 1651.

By 1650 he had obtained 2400 acres in Gloucester County, in 1651 he obtained grants for 500 acres adjoining War Captain's Neck; 500 acres on Poropotank Creek in Northumberland Co., VA.  In 1653 he patented 300 acres on the York River side of Tendall's Neck and 300 acres on the south side of the Rappahannock at the head of the south branch of Matchepungo.  Nov 1661 he patented 4000 acres, 1000 acres was the site of Mount Vernon, another 2000 was on the south shore of Hunting Creek, opposite the site of Alexandria.

Beginning in 1652, he was owner of a ship, trading between England and Virginia.  In 1653 he purchased the "store", a commercial warehouse; the site of considerable export-import business.

After the death of her husband, Ann (Constable) Lee  m 2nd to Edmund Lister .
