1    The marriage entry notes Nicholas Lee, deceased as Sarah's father. This is the only appropriate baptism entry in the IGI. Nicholas Lee married Jane Row on 25th May 1769 in St John, Garrigill). Thus Sarah does not appear to be the sister of Peter's cousin's wife Hannah Lee (probably the daughter of Nicholas and Hannah Lee baptised 11 Jul 1779 in Ninebanks)
