Example text

Considering he largely owed his position to Fairfax, it is not surprising that Washington’s work focused on his patron’s interests. By this time, around 1747, Fairfax’s interests were virtually indistinguishable from those of the recently formed Ohio Company of Virginia. Lucrative opportunities existed in western land speculation. Seizing this opportunity, as well as capitalizing on London’s imperial interest in curbing French expansion, Thomas Lee, along with some of the Northern Neck’s other leading men, created the Ohio Company of Virginia in 1747.

Washington also gained valuable hands-on experience working with surveyors employed by the Fairfax family. indd 19 2/22/2012 6:25:51 PM 20 JASON E. FARR surveyors helped Washington learn the nuances and techniques required in mapping America’s frontier landscape. In the early spring of 1748, at the age of sixteen, Washington joined a team of surveyors that Lord Fairfax hired to map tracts of land along the South Branch of the Potomac River, in the western portion of his proprietary. During this expedition, Washington served as an apprentice under James Genn, the chief surveyor of Prince William County.

But in a world of patronage and privilege, how could a middling-class provincial Virginian have become the larger-than-life historical figure we know today? Washington benefited from the patronage of leading land barons, but it was his youthful ambition as a surveyor, messenger, and quasi-diplomat in the American frontier that laid the foundation for his unlikely rise to power. Land was a source of wealth and power in British America as well as in the early republic. Major land barons like Richard Henderson in North Carolina and Kentucky; Henry Laurens in South Carolina; and Richard Henry Lee in Virginia gained political power during the colonial and revolutionary eras because of their vast land holdings.
