Who was Augustine Washington, Jr.?

Colonel Augustine Washington, Jr. was the second son of Augustine Washington and Jane Butler, and George Washington's half-brother. Augustine married Anne Aylett who was born in 1726 at "Nominy Plantation." According to the will of Augustine Washington Sr., the land now known as Mount Vernon first was willed to Lawrence Washington. However, the will instructed that in the case Lawrence should die without an heir the property would go to Augustine Jr. if he would be willing to give the Popes Creek property to George Washington. Augustine decided instead to keep the Popes Creek property and so George got the property now known as Mount Vernon.
