Lee Genealogy & History

Lee genealogy presents researchers with immense challenges, including many different spellings (among them Lee, Lea, Leagh, Lees, Leese, Leigh, Leighe, Legh, and Li), and several different ethnic and cultural origins, including English, Romany, and Gaelic, as well as Chinese. (During the Tang dynasty, Lee was the royal surname.) Consequently the meaning of the name varies based on Lee family history. Famous Lees include the American General Robert E. Lee, the American author Harper Lee, the Chinese-American marital artist and actor Bruce Lee, and the film director Spike Lee.
