THE WASHINGTON FAMILY.
itnil Hlcti Standing of th lingllih
rnmlly of Washington!.
The- history of Ooorgo Washington's Drltlsh
ineestora has been traced back on ono sldu to
:uo Norman conquerors of Cngland, niul on
.ho other to thoBaxou, niul from tlio earliest
latoH tho family npwat a to havo belonged to
:ho lamlcil Rcntryor lower nobility, Freo
iian, tho historian, snysi "TlioTcutonlocInn,
which In somo unrecorded settlement of our
folk plants! on n Bpot of Kii(;IUIi soil tho ob
tain) luuno of tho Wasclngns, dreameil not
that tho immo of their llttlo mark should bo
mi) tho llrst of names In n younger and
vaster Kngraud "
Whllo tho unnio of Washington Is of Ocr
.nan origin, tho blood Is largoly Norman
l'ho old ncord says that when Henry VIII
dissolved tho monasteries In 1WH-1!0 ho gnvo
tho land in Bulgrnvo with other estates In
Northampton to Iiurcnco Washington, of
Northampton, gentleman, who built n stouo
housoou thoestnto, and theru cloven children
anil hlxtecn grandchildren wcro liom (in
:Iudlug John and Uitirctico, tho emigrant to
America), and fourteen great-grandchildreii.
It Is almost In tho center of Knglaud and In u
inlet rural neighborhood. Irving thought
Hint tho threo risl ttars and two ml sti lKsof
tho family coat of nrms furnished tho germ
Men of tho American Hag, but tho accepted
history of tho ling Is somewhat dllTercnt,
Threo generations of Washington lived
thero. Then tho fortunes of thu family
Jctiliucd, but wcro afterwards restored by
nealthy marriages. Cuvo Cuitlo, In York
shire, was tho homo of tho Washington dur
ing tlio commonwealth, and from thero Col.
John Washington, tho great-grandfather of
(leorgo, emigrated to America In 1057 or
Km',). Among tho uotnblo neighbors of tlio
Washington wcro tho Kalrfnxen and tlio
Harrisons. MnJ. Ueu. Thoiuns Knirfax ami
MaJ. Oen. Thomas Harrison wcro fellow sol
diers In Cromwell's army Tho brothers
John and taurcucc, hous of Blr William
Washington, left England during tho rulo
of Cromwell and rmno to Virginia. John
married Anna I'olk. Tholr km Uiurciico
married Mildred Warner. Their bou Augus
tin married for his second wifo, In 1TJ0,
Mary Dall, who became tho mother of
Qcorgc. Ilut Sir William Washington, tho
father of John nud Laurence, tho emigrants,
married Kloanor Harrison, and thus tho re
mote, ancestry of our first anil last presidents
wcro connected by marriage.
That Itcinuikiiblo Statue.
Tho statuo In front of tho Capitol at Wash
ington, w hich was designed by Urccuough,
has been tho butt of all tho jokes of senators,
representatives, strangers uud guides. Even
Alton O. Thurman Is hi Id to have uided in
"Tho outstretched hand of George," ro
mni ked tho Ohio statesman once, "teems to
mo to bay, 'Hero's my sword; my clothes are
In tho atcnt ofllce. "
Another wag, commenting on tho statue of
Columbus on tho front steps of tlio capital
balancing tho world In his right hand, re
marked: "Oeorgo Washington Is playing ball with
Columbus nnd saying, 'Quit your fooling and
Still this statuo has a longer history than
any other nt tho Capitol, probably. It was
begun at tho end of Androw Jucksou'x llrst
term, and took eight years for Hoiatio
Greenough to makoit. Ho did tho work In
Florence, Italy, and mudo tho statuo In a kit
ting ixisturo instead of standing erect, as tho
act of congress commuuded. It was deigned
to stand in tho center of tho rotunda Insldo
tho Capitol, when it was completed in lb-10.
Tho next question was how to get It from
Italy to America. Congress haggled over It
for sonio time, and finally sent a man-of-war
to bring It from Genoa to Washington.
In tho mean wlillo, Mr. Greenough hod
started it to Ueuoo. It weighed twelve tons
and it took twenty-two yoko of oxen to liuul
It. As It went on Its way through Italy, tho
peasants thought it uu linngo ot some saint,
nud hero and thero they kneeled and erosw.il
their breasts as It went by. When it got to
Genoa it was found that it was so largo it
could not bo gotten through tlio hatchway of
tho man-of-war which was to carry It to
Washington, ami a merchant vessel hud co
bo chnrtei ecL
At last It urrlved nt tho Washington navy
yard, and congress was horrilled toseothat
tho statuo, which they expected was to stand
upright, was sitting in i chair, nnd that It
wus nuilo to tho waist. Henry A. Wiso then
"Tho man does not llvo, and nover did live,
who saw Washington without his shirt."
And tho country appluudrsl tho sentiment.
Ilut tho navy jurd Is not tho Capitol, and
it cost $0,000 to bring tho statuo troni It to
tho rotunda. When It reached tho Capitol
doors It was found thut tho statuo, lll.o tlio
painting of tho Vicar of Wukvfleld s family,
was too largo to go through, and tlio mason
ry had to bo cut away uud tho doa- en
larged. When it was lluully put In, it is
said that tho lloor began tosiuk, and a eiles
tal had to bo built to support It.
It was soon found that tho lotuuda was no
placo for It bouio jicopio thought it was too
largo and out of prqiortiou with its stir-loundin-s,
and others, hurrying from tho
senate over to tlio house, found It mi obstacle
in their path, still otheis insisted that It
lacked artistic merit. Ilut whatever the rea
son, tho statuo, ufter a number of removals,
was tukeu to wlieioit now stands in the bit
ter cold, bleak air of tho Capitol plateau,
where tho winds can howl out Washington's
agony as they go teurin0' by, ami wheio his
nakedness "has tin- tnuudlcss inch of tho sky
for his canopy. "No- Yoi k Tribune..
