George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 21 August 1773]

21. At home all day. In the Afternoon a Mr. Lambkin came & stayed all Night.

Mr. Lambkin is probably George Lambkin or Lamkin of Fairfax County, who signed a bond of copartnership with Opie Lindsay, 21 Oct. 1771, to build a mill on Wolf Run in Fairfax County near the Prince William County line (Fairfax County Deeds, Book K–1, 36–40, Vi Microfilm). He is also probably the George Lambkin who was a justice for Fauquier County when it was formed in 1759 and was granted a license in 1761 to keep an ordinary in or near Warrenton (Va. Gaz., R, Mar. 1768; GROOME [1] description begins H. C. Groome. Fauquier during the Proprietorship: A Chronicle of the Colonization and Organization of a Northern Neck County. Richmond, Va., 1927. description ends , 188). Lambkin had owned a mill on Goose Creek in Loudoun County which he sold to Daniel Jenifer (1727–1795) in 1771 (MOFFETT description begins Lee Moffett. Water Powered Mills of Fauquier County, Virginia. [Virginia, 1972]. description ends , 37–38).
