Washington Genealogy & History

Washington is an English locational name, originally referring to the people of Wassa who were hunters. Old English "wassa" means hunting and "tun" means settlement, and there were several early English villages named Washington in Durham and West Sussex. Washington family history includes a feudal manor in Lancashire and emigrants to Virginia in America in 1639. The most famous name-holder in Washington genealogy is American President George Washington, commander-in-chief of the revolutionary forces and "father of the country." It is thought the bars and mullets (stars) on the Washington coat of arms inspired the stars and stripes of the American flag.
