Ann Lee alias Sackville is mentioned in Knole and the Sackvilles by V. Sackville-West, at pages 142/3 of the edition I have. From contemporary papers it appears that her mother Alice Lee was born in London on St Thomas' Day (21 Dec) 1644, was described in the 1690's, from memory, as either of St Martin's, or St Giles, in-the-Fields, and was alive at 21 Dec 1715.
There is an article about the Turner family in the magazine Hertfordshire Countryside (December 1975 issue).
