About Lee, NH
“Lee remained a part of Durham till 1766, when, after a lot of preliminary legislation, on January 16, the act for the new town of Lee became a law, and the new town was born. The petitioners did not give it that name, in fact they did not suggest any name; it was probably the gift of Governor Benning Wentworth. Why did Governor Wentworth select the name “Lee” for this town? He named a large number of new towns, and gave them very appropriate names, but none better than this excellent town has borne for over 240 years. There is no record of his reason for so naming it. In selecting the English town names he took those in which his friends and acquaintances lived, the residences of distinguished persons. I guess, but do not know, that he took the name Lee from the town of that name on the River Lee, now in greater London.
