Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Lawrence Washington
    THIRTIES
  • 1698
    Age 39
    Lawrence died at the age of 38 in February 1698, the same year in which his daughter was born.
    More Details Hide Details Following his death, Mildred Warner Washington married George Gale, who moved the family to Whitehaven, England. Mildred died in 1701 at the age of 30 following a difficult childbirth. Her will stipulated that Gale become the guardian of her children, but in 1704 Lawrence's cousin John Washington successfully petitioned to have custody transferred to him. At that point, the three Washington children returned to Virginia to his care, and they lived near Chotank Creek. He had the use of the lands and personal property they had inherited while he acted as their guardian.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1688
    Age 29
    In 1688, Lawrence married Mildred Warner, one of three daughters of Mildred Reade and the wealthy Gloucester County planter Augustine Warner, Jr. By her, he had three children: John (1692–1746), Augustine (1694–1743), and Mildred (1698–1747).

  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1659
    Age 0
    Lawrence Washington was the eldest son of John Washington (from Essex, England) and Anne Pope. He was born in September 1659, on his father's estate at Bridges Creek, in Westmoreland County, Colony of Virginia.
    More Details Hide Details He had two siblings: John (c.1660–1698) and Anne (c.1660–1697). Lawrence was named for his paternal grandfather Lawrence Washington. As the eldest son of the Washington family, Lawrence received the benefits of primogeniture, as was common at the time. As would become tradition within the Washington family, he was sent to England to be educated, where he trained as a lawyer. Upon the death of his father, Washington inherited two substantial estates on the Potomac River: Mattox Creek (1,850 acres) and Little Hunting Creek (2,500 acres) (which would eventually be renamed Mount Vernon by Lawrence's grandson and namesake Lawrence Washington). He did not add substantially to either property during his lifetime, which suggests that he was more interested in politics and the law than in the plantations.
