Hon. Charles Lee

b. July 1758, d. 24 June 1815
     Hon. Charles Lee was born in July 1758.1 He was the son of Maj. Gen Henry Lee II and Lucy Grymes. Hon. Charles Lee died on 24 June 1815 at "Leeton Forest", Fauquier Co., VA, at age 56.1,2

Charles, lawyer and U.S. attorney general, was born at "Leesylvania," in Prince William County, Virginia, the son of planter, burgess, and revolutionary politician Henry Lee (1727-1787) and Lucy Grymes. A younger brother of Henry ("Light-Horse Harry") Lee (1756-1818), Charles Lee followed in his sibling's footsteps and attended Princeton College (then called the College of New Jersey), where he graduated with honors in 1775. Somewhat aimless after graduation, he read law in Philadelphia in 1779; the next year he briefly held the post of secretary to the Board of Treasury. Lee was licensed to practice law at the Virginia bar in 1781 and commenced his profession in the local county courts of northern Virginia. Following the Revolution he expanded his practice into the General Court of Virginia and qualified before the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals in 1785.During this period Lee gathered brief reports of cases decided by the judges of the superior courts, though his reports were not published until the twentieth century.

Lee held the post of naval officer of the Potomac River District during the Revolution, an appointment he obtained at least as early as 1779. Although deputies carried out the customs inspection duties during Lee's absence in Philadelphia, he apparently retained the position until the creation of the federal government in 1789, when President George Washington appointed him customs collector at Alexandria. The same year Lee wed Anne Lucinda Lee, the daughter of Richard Henry Lee; the couple had six children. In the spring of 1793, Lee resigned his federal post to devote more attention to his law practice in partnership with his younger brother, Edmund Jennings Lee. Also that year he gained election to the Virginia House of Delegates from Fairfax County, where he served for two sessions.

In November 1795 President Washington again called Lee into government service to succeed the deceased William Bradford (1755-1795) as attorney general of the United States. Lee was not Washington's first choice for the post, but he served the president ably and was continued in office by John Adams (1735-1826). A staunch Federalist and vigorous opponent of conciliation with the French, Lee enforced the Alien and Sedition Acts and remained faithful to the president in the tumultuous final days of Adams's tenure. Upon the departure of Timothy Pickering from Adams's cabinet in May 1800, Lee briefly acted as secretary of state and had the pleasure of forwarding a commission to his friend John Marshall as Pickering's permanent successor.

Adams named Lee (as one of his notorious "midnight appointments") to one of the federal judgeships created by the Judiciary Act of 1801, but the Virginian lost the post when Congress repealed the act the following year. Lee then settled in Alexandria to practice law. He was counsel for William Marbury in Marbury v.Madison. He also defended Samuel Chase, in his impeachment trial before the U.S. Senate in 1805; and Aaron Burr (1756-1836), in his trial for treason in Richmond in 1807. While practicing law, Lee speculated widely in land on either side of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains and in military bounty lands in Ohio. In 1809, five years after his wife's death, Lee married Margaret Christian Scott Peyton of Fauquier County, Virginia, a widow. They had three children. About 1813 he left Alexandria for "Leeton Forest," his country estate in Fauquier County, where he died two years later.

Austere, taciturn, and undemonstrative, Charles Lee was a skilled legal practitioner and a strongly opinionated politician. 2
