    Sue,

    Your LEE family is in the 1901 census at 1 Penzer Street -- do you have this information? [Reference: RG13/2758 Folio 35 Page 2]

    Sue,

    In the 1881 census, it appears that John LEE/LEA has been mistakenly enumerated as John Harry PENZER. You can access the entry for yourself -- if you haven't already done so -- by doing a search for John or his grandparents Job and Ann PENZER. [Reference RG11/2892 Folio 37 Page 1]

    The 1861 census may hold the key to the mystery of John's mother:

    Towns End, Kingswinford, Staffordshire
    RG9/2070 Folio 12 Page 17

    Job PENZER Head Mar 44 Saddler [born] Claverly Salop
    Ann " Wife Mar 49 Martley Worcester
    Susan " Dau U 13 Scholar Kingswinford Staff

    There's a marriage record for Susan PENZER in the June quarter of 1868 in Stourbridge. One of the potential grooms is a William LEA. I think this is a good bet for you -- Reference: Volume 6c Page 195.

    If we can assume that John's parents were Susan PENZER and William LEA and that they married sometime after 1861, then this is the most likely-looking William in the 1861 census:

    Brettle Lane, Kingswinford, Staffordshire
    RG9/2069 Folio 5 Page 10

    John LEA Head Married 51 Glass Cutter [born] Ireland Cork
    Hannah Do Wife " 50 [born] Do Do
    William Do Son Un 18 Glass Cutter Staffordshire Kingswinford
    David Do Son 10 Scholar Worcester Stourbridge
    George Do Son 7 Do Do Do

    The marriage certificate for Susan PENZER may help verify this information.

    ...And the same family in 1851:

    Bridgnorth Road, Stourbridge, Worcestershire
    HO107/2035 Folio 277 Page 30

    John LEA Head Mar 41 Glass Cutter [born] Ireland; Cork
    Hannah LEA Wife Mar 39 [born] Do Do
    Elizabeth Do Daur 14 Bristol
    John Do Son 11 Scholar Worcestershire; Stourbridge
