Aged: 73 years
He was said to be "of Eversden, Cambridgeshire.""He was granted a degree of Bachelor of Arts (first in the ordo) 1544-5, Master of Arts in 1548. He was a Fellow of Saint John's College about 1545, and was so designated in a deed of 1551. '24 September 1551 - Deed of sale by Christopher Roger of Little Eversden, husbandman, to Robert leete, Fellow of Saint John's College, of 1/2 acre in Little Eversden. (Queen's College Archives, Eversden Deed 664)' This transfer was for property which Robert's brother Edmund had bought from Christoper Rogers by a deed of 10 August 1550 (Deed 663) and which Edmund bequeathed to Robert in his will dated 12 July 1551. The bequest was apparently implements by reconveying it to Robert." "On 4 May 1558, Mary Lete, widow, and Robert Lete, gentleman, quitclaimed to the College of Saint John certain lands in Gret and Little Eversden, which lands had been deeded four days earlier by his brother Thomas Lete of Little Eversden, gentleman, for £60. (Deeds 672, 673). A performance bond of £100 was also executed. These must have been inherited lands in which Robert could have had some vague claim; otherwise there would have been no need for him to execute a quitclaim deed. As for the widow Mar, she was perhaps the widow of Brother Henry of whom little is known.""On 6 April 1573, 'Mr. Robert Leete' and Alice Grundy were married at Great Ever sden. He must have been about 48 years old at the time of this marriage. Perhaps he had an earlier wife of whom there is no record. There seem to have been no other children except by his marriage to Alice grundy. Their first child was baptized a mere 2 1/2 months after their marriage. Apparently he resisted marriage as long as possible Robert Leete died about 1597-8 intestate, and administration was granted to his widow Alice on 17 February 1597/8. Alice must have been about 20 years younger than her husband."
