Robert Lee first appears in theatrical records in the Plot of "Dead Man's Fortune." Due to the absence of a date for that Plot, theater historians do not know when Lee's career began (Eccles calculates his birth date as 1569), but other records show it to have been quite long, lasting into 1622 at least. Parish records show that Lee lived for some time in St. Bodolph Aldgate (1595+) and St. James Clerkenwell (c. 1609-19).
