The Washington Families of Virginia

George Washington had no natural children, so the names in this post, from primary sources, are his siblings, parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, and cousins.

Please note that the original immigrants, Col. John Washington and his brother Lawrence, were royal gateway ancestors; that is, they descend from royalty many generations back, but they moved to America.

Therefore all (or most) of the Washingtons here descend from royalty as well. However, some of the Washingtons in southern Virginia counties are difficult to connect to the ones in northern, central (coastal) and western Virginia counties.

These data posted here are raw and uninterpreted (except when George’s direct line is noted and in one or two other entries). You can have the fun of sorting them out.

The Washingtons began in this county and fanned out to different counties as the generations multiplied.
