The Washington immigrant ancestor and great-grandfather of President George Washington was John Washington, who was born in Purleigh, Essex, England, United Kingdom, around 1631 and emigrated to the Colony of Virginia in 1656.[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]
