Sulgrave Manor

Sulgrave Manor was the home to ancestors of George Washington, first President of America. The Manor came into the Washington family, Lawrence Washington, in 1539, and it was his great, great grandson, Colonel John Washington who left England and acquired land in Virginia which later became Mount Vernon. George Washington, who lead the revolt against King George III, was John Washington's great grandson.

In 1914, Sulgrave Manor was presented by a body of British subscribers to the Peoples of Great Britain and United States of America in celebration of one hundred years peace between the two countries. In 1924 the National Society of Colonial Dames of America endowed the Manor House, and still support the upkeep of the property today.
