  • Name Joseph Lee 
    • The Gooderham family and the Lee family appeared to have had a number of connections in the early years of Toronto (York). Verbal family history ( now written down ) relates that Joseph Lee arrived in Canada at the same time as Gooderham and Worts, having traveled from England on the same ship.

      Joseph Lee is mentioned at least three times in the document "The Windmill and It's Time" Page 39, Page 70 and again on Page 76.
      There are three marriages between the families that relate to Joseph Lee:

      1. Rachel Bell George ( Great Granddaughter of Joseph Lee)
      Married: Alexander Leslie Gooderham - April 20, 1921

      2. Walter Cecil Lee ( Grandson of Joseph Lee)
      Married: Alice Wilmott Gooderham - April 23, 1889

      3. Charlotte Wheeler Taylor ( Granddaughter of Joseph Lee)
      Married: Melville Ross Gooderham - Sept 15, 1898

      As told to Gay Gooderham by Robert (Bob) Ross, a great great great grandson of Joseph Lee.

      One of his daughters was named Edith Oldroyd. The Oldroyd name came from her G Grandmother Rachel Oldroyd who married John Lee on April 2, 1771 in St. Georges, Hanover Square (I assume England). John Lee was Joseph Lee's Grandfather)
