Washington, of AVashington, co. Diir-
liam, Whitfield and Wavton, co. Lancaster,
Sulgrave, co. Northampton, and America.
The name of Washington originated from
a manor bearing tlie appellation, in the
county of Durham, and occurs so far back
as the 13th century, when it appears to
have been assumed by AVilliara de Hert-
burn, whose male descendants held the
lands until about the year 1400 ; at that
period they were conveyed by mairiage to
Sir William Tempest of Stella, by Dionisia,
only daughter and heir of William Wes-
pyngton, of Wessyngton. Though the main
stem then expired, branches still flourished
in Durham, and soon spread themselves into
the neighbouring counties of Lancaster and
York. One of the Durham house, John
de Wessyngton, attained considerable emi-
nence as a scholar and divine, and was elected
Prior of Durliam in 141G. Nor was he the
only man of learning of the race. Joseph
Washington, a skilful lawyer of Gray's Lm,
" who," says Thoresby, " is to be remem-
bered among the authors, wrote the first
volume of Modern Reports," an abridgment
of the Statutes and other esteemed Avoiks.
With these brief details of the early inhe-
ritors of the name, we shall proceed to tlie
immediate ancestry of the American Wash-
ingtons. Their first recorded ancestor was
John Washington of Whitfield, in J.anca-
shire, who lived about the middle of the
15th century, and had two sons, John, avIio
inherited the patrimonial lands at Wliitficld ;
and Robert, who settled at Warton, in the
same county, and married three wives ; by
the first of whom he was father of John
Washington, Esq., of Warton, who, mar-
rying Margaret, sister of Sir Thomas Kitson,
Alderman of London, left a son and successor,
Lawrence Washington, Esq., of Gray's
Inn, Mayor of Northampton, in 1532 and
1545, to whom Henry Vlll. granted the
manor of Sulgrave, parcel of the dissolved
priory of St. Andrew, near that town. Law-
rence married Anne, daughter of Robert
Pargiter, of Gret worth, and dying in 1584,
left with several daughters, one of whom
■wedded Abel Makepeace, Esq., two sons,
Robert, his heir, and Lawrence, of Garsdon,
Wilts, who received the honour of knight-
hood, and was father of J^awrence Wash-
ington, Esq., of Garsdon, Avhose only daughter
and heiress Elizabetli, married Roljert Shir-
ley, Earl Ferrers.

Robert Washington, Esq., the eldest
son of Lawrence, the grantee of Sulgrave,
inherited that manor, but subsequent! v, a, d.



1610, in conjunction with his eldest son, sold
it to his nephew, Lawrence Makepeace, Esq.,
of the Inner Temple. By Elizabeth, his
wife, daughter and heir of Walter I^ight, Esq.,
of Radway, Robert Washington had a large
family, the eldest son of which, Lawrence
Washington, Esq , removed, on the sale of
Sulgrave, to Brington, where he died in
1G16_._ He m. in 1588, Margaret, daughter
of William Butler, Esq., of Tighes, in Sussex,
and had three sons, Sir William AVashington,
Kt., of Packington, co. Leicester, wito m.
Anne A^illiers, half sister of George, Duke
of Buckingham, and John and Lawrence
Washington, Avho both sought their fortunes
in the New World, purchased lands in A^ir-
ginia, and became successful planters there.
The elder, who was employed in a military
command against the Indians, and rose to
the rank of Colonel, was father, by Anne
Pope, his wife, of Lawrence AA^vsiiington,
of Bridges Creek, in Westmoreland county,
A'irginia, who m. Mildred, daughter of Col.
Augustine AVarner, and died in 1G97, leaving
two sons, John and Augustine : the latter,
who died 12th April, 1743, at the age of 49,
Avas father, by Mary his second wife, of
General George " AVashington, Com-
MANDER-iN-CiiiiiF, and First President
OF THE United States of America.

Anns. Arg. two bars, in chief three mullets of the
second.

Ciest. A raven, with wings indorsed ppr. issuant out
of a ducal coronet, or. Soon after Genei'al Washington
became President, an interesting correspondence took
place between him and Sir Isaac Heard, tlien Garter, on
the subject of the Washington pedigree and arms.



Swan, of Baldwinstown, co. AA^exford.
This family is of very ancient extraction,
being of Danish origin ; a Danisli noble-
man, Swain, having early settled in the
south-eastern portion of England. The
Swans occiu twice in Doomsday Book,
as landowners, and as early as the re'gn
of Richard II., they wrote themselves
"gentlemen," as appears from the ancient
deeds. John Swan, of Southfleet, co.
Kent, sat as Baron for the Borough of
Sandwich, in the reigns of Heniy A"I., Ed-
ward IV., and Richard III. The family
held large possessions in the county of Kent,
including the manors of Swanscombe,
Delisted, Sutton, Denton,* &c. ; their chief
seats being Hook Place, in Southfleet, the
residence of the elder branch (from which
Swan of Baldwinstown claims descent), and
Lydd, and afterwards A\'3'e, and Denton
Court, the places of location of the younger
In-anch.f Both these English branches liave
become extinct, the former in the person of

* ITasted's History of Kent.

t This branch inter-married with the Derings, Boys,
Twisdcns, &c., all families of bigh extraction and great
antlcjuity in the county of Kent. Vide Berry's County
Genealogies, Kent.
