17. All of the Company here Rid to the Mill. To Dinner came Lame Jno. Washington & Miss Terrett.

Lame John Washington (d. 1787) of Leedstown, King George County, was crippled in both legs. He was a son of Robert Washington (d. 1765) and grandson of John Washington (b. 1671) and Mary Townshend Washington of Stafford County. His second wife, Constantia Terrett Washington, was a daughter of GW’s neighbor, William Henry Terrett (d. 1758). The Miss Terrett who came with him to Mount Vernon was probably his wife’s younger sister Susanna.
