Born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, on February 22, 1732, George Washington was the eldest son of Augustine Washington and his second wife, Mary Washington, who were prosperous Virginia gentry. His father died in 1743, and soon thereafter George went to live with his half brother Lawrence at Mount Vernon, Lawrence´s plantation. Lawrence had married into the Fairfax family, prominent Virginians who helped launch George´s career. An early ambition to go to sea had been effectively discouraged by George´s mother; instead, he turned to surveying, securing in 1748 an appointment to survey Lord Fairfax´s lands. He helped lay out the Virginia town of Belhaven and was appointed surveyor for Culpepper County. George accompanied his brother to Barbados in an effort to cure Lawrence of tuberculosis, but Lawrence died in 1752, soon after the brothers returned. George ultimately inherited the Mount Vernon estate. By 1753 the growing rivalry between the British and French over control of the Ohio Valley, soon to erupt into the French and Indian War, created new opportunities for the ambitious young Washington. He first gained public notice when, as adjutant of one of Virginia´s four military districts, he was dispatched on a fruitless mission to warn the French commander at Fort Le Boeuf against further encroachment on territory that had been deeded legally to Britain. Assured that the Virginia frontier was safe from French attacks, Washington left the army in 1758 and returned to Mount Vernon. With the support of an ever-growing circle of intellectual associates, he entered politics, serving five years in Virginia’s House of Burgesses.
