His ancestors had immigrated from Coton, Shropshire, England to Virginia in 1642. Lee was the fourth son of the couple and would not receive as large an inheritance as his older brothers.

Lee's education was referred to as a "common Virginia education". He soon became interested in the working of the tobacco industry. He left home to work with his uncle Thomas Corbin in the tobacco business.
