The Washington immigrant ancestor and great-grandfather of President George Washington was John Washington, who was born in Tring, Hertfordshire, England, United Kingdom, in 1631 and arrived in the Colony of Virginia in 1657 after being shipwrecked.[2]

George Washington's immediate ancestry entirely traces back to England, other than a great-great-great-grandfather, Nicolas Martiau, a Huguenot from Île de Ré, France and naturalized Englishman, who arrived at Virginia aboard the Francis Bonaventure in 1620.[3]
