Lund Washington (1737–1796), a distant cousin of GW, was the son of Townshend and Elizabeth Lund Washington, of the Chotank area, where GW spent part of his youth. Lund had managed the Ravensworth estates of Henry Fitzhugh (1723–1783) during the early 1760s, and in ca. Oct. 1764 GW hired him as manager for his Mount Vernon plantations.
