Washington Family Genealogy

George Washington's father, Augustine, purchased what is today called Ferry Farm in 1738 and moved the family there in that same year. Upon Augustine's death in 1743, George, just 11 years old, inherited the property. His mother, Mary, managed the property for him and lived there until 1772, when she moved to a small house in Fredericksburg to be closer to her daughter Betty. George sold the farm to Hugh Mercer in 1774. Follow the navigational links to learn more about the Washington family.
