George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 18 March 1769]

18. Went up to Greenway Court where I dined and stayd all Night. Met Colo. Lewis here.

Greenway Court was not only the residence of Lord Fairfax but also the permanent location of the proprietor’s land office. There GW and Fielding Lewis, in their capacity as trustees for the sale of George Carter’s estate, paid Fairfax the balance of quitrents owed by the estate since 1746 (receipt from Thomas, Lord Fairfax, to GW and Lewis, 18 Mar. 1769, DNA).
