(fl. 1525–35).

English master-on, probably the son of John Lee. He designed the tomb of Fisher, Bishop of Rochester, intended for St John's College Chapel, Cambridge, but now destroyed. It had early Renaissance features, like those of Bishop West's Chantry Chapel, Ely Cathedral. He was therefore among the first to use Renaissance motifs in England.
