US statesman and first president (178997), born in Westmoreland Co, Virginia, USA. His father, a prosperous planter and iron foundry owner, died when he was 11, and George moved in with his elder half-brother Lawrence, who owned the plantation Mount Vernon. In 1748 George did surveying for Lord Fairfax, a relative of Lawrence by marriage, meanwhile reading widely in Mt Vernon's library. In 1751 Washington accompanied the ailing half-brother to Barbados, and on his death the next year was left guardian of Lawrence's daughter at Mt Vernon, which Washington would inherit in 1761 after her death.
