Administrative / Biographical history

Alfred Lee (1858-1923), businessman and book collector, was born on 8 June 1858 near Dublin, eldest surviving son of Frederick Norman Lee, army officer, and his wife Elizabeth, née Finlay. His father, who had served in the Crimean War with the 19th Regiment, received a land grant in New Zealand and in 1867 took his wife and three children there. Alfred attended Christchurch and Auckland Grammar schools and in 1874 was sent to Sydney with £10

Soon after his arrival he was employed as a commercial traveller by Enoch Taylor & Co., boot and shoe importers; he became manager for Australia in 1884 and was senior partner in 1888-1923. He travelled widely on the firm's behalf. At St Clement's Anglican Church, Yass, he married Minnie Dodds (1860-1938) on 10 March 1879. They lived first at The Willows, Yass, then at North Sydney. Early in 1886 they bought Glen Roona, Old South Head Road (later Penkivil Street), Bondi, where they lived out their lives
