I am struggling like you, dear cousin. I am mainly of the Buckland Clan but there is a point in the Buckland marriages where Lee connects and I have read that the Lee I researched was a "Hawker" and feel certain he was a Lee of Romany background. Hard to prove though!
For anyone stumbling on this area, I am trying to research the following Lees....
John James Lee b 1841 Wouthwark and marr Ann Lewis. I have the children of this union
At time of christening son Frederick J Lee, father was a Bargeman Later Hawker and pedlar
1851 Brother in Law living with them
1881 licenced hawker 2 Cumberland Mews
1891 census says he is a Chair Hawker living at 4 Cumberland Mews Kennington First Lambeth London
According to the Wedding Banns of John James Lee and Ann Lewis. John was a batchellor and Ann was a MINOR.
John James Lee b 1813 Middx marr Eliza Yapp 1835 Lambeth .. 1851 had brother in law living with them ummarried name Emanuel Hanwell/ Eliza 1851 Census she says born in Clerkenwell. Census address Surrey Borough Road Southwark St George. Also have note born Battlebridge Rd Islington from elsewhere
He gives occupation as Occupation Southwark, London
Chair Maker/ Licensed Hawker
John Lee b 1780 not known where who married a Maria
This is a straight run of descendents.
If I can connect these as Romanies then my cousin has Romany ancestors both sides of her family.

Birth about Apr 1844 in Saunderton, High Wycombe, Bucks, England
Her father was Thomas Lee born about 1821
Her mother was Elizabeth
Ann Lee married James (Henry) Styles
9 Aug 1865 West Wycombe, Buckingham, England
Their only child together was Henry James Styles
born 6 Aug 1865 Naphill Common, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire
Henry was raised by James' parents and James remarried in 1873, then again in 1882
I suspect than Ann died in childbirth or within a couple of years
I really want to connect to my Romany roots through Ann and learn more about her
Any and all information is appreciated. All we have are two decorative plates that were hers that have been handed down from James to Henry to eldest son etc. I have talked to the person that has them but I have never seeen them.
