The ancestry of George Washington is traced through the Royal line
of Denmark in the thirty-two generations to "THORFIN THE DANE," A. D. 1000, whose ancestors were of Schleswig, Denmark.
He settled in Yorkshire, England, prior to the Norman Conquest. The descent is traced in Denmark and England, from father to son,
down through the centuries, including branches in different shires, to JOHN WASHINGTON, the great-grandfather of General
GEORGE WASHINGTON, in twenty generations from THORFIN; with interesting personal matter
regarding nearly 500 members of the Family and their alliances in England and America.
