His father was a large land-owner with many slaves. so money was not a problem. However, his father was away on business much of the time and died when George was 11, so he did not have the full benefit of a loving father. He moved in with his older half-brother, Lawrence when he was 16. He mother was somewhat protective and demanding. Almost nothing is known about his schooling, but he obviously learned to read and write and do enough math to be a surveyor.
He grew up on a farm in VA and was a second son. He knew at an early age that he would have to work most of his life since his brother would inherit from their father. At 12 he tried to join the British navy as a ship's boy, but his mother pulled him off the ship. He did enlist in the British army as an officer in his early 20's and was an officer in the French and Indian War.
