  • Notes 
    • George born April 24, 1751, died November, 1810. There is on record in King George a deed, February 20, 1787, from John Fitzhugh, of "Bellair," and his son George, conveying to Daniel McCarty Fitzhugh 473 acres in King George, called Feneaux, or the Hop Yard; and on January 12, 1788, George Fitzhugh, of King George, and his wife, Humphrey Francis Toy Fitzhugh, conveyed to Thacker Washington, of King George, a track of land in that county. It seems probable there was no issue of this marriage, as the will of Mrs. Humphrey Frances Toy Fitzhugh, proved in King George in 1791, names only her husband and niece, Caroline Matilda Fitzhugh. Her surname was probably Tabb
