Quick Reference

Henry Lee was born around 1644 and died in 1713, when his son succeeded him as rector of Brington, Huntingdonshire. He gained his BA in 1665, his MA in 1668 and his BD in 1675, and he was at one time a fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. By 1702 he was rector of Titchmarsh, Northamptonshire. He was the author of Anti-Scepticism: or, Notes upon each Chapter of Mr. Lock's Essay concerning Humane Understanding (1702), one of the most able and detailed assessments of John Locke's Essay. Though very little is known of Lee's life, there is no reason to doubt the prima facie identity of this Henry Lee with the one responsible for Anti-Scepticism. (Cf. Roger Woolhouse, 1983, p. 21.)
