We are currently researching the genealogy for the family of Samuel Fraunces located in London 1500-1750, the Island of Jamaica 1650-1750, Virginia 1650-1800, New York 1720-Present, Philadelphia 1790-1810, Indiana 1810-1900, Canada, France and other locations. Any information from members of this family would be greatly appreciated. Some of the allied and collateral family names for this project are Jacqualin, Ambler, Battin, Fairfax, Cary, Campbell, Colden, Custis, Dalley, D'Ailley, DeHart, Farquar, Freaneau, Gautier, Gifford, Hill, Hyckes, Livingstone, Maranda, Madalene, Smock, Teneyek, Thompson and Washington.  

Because of Samuel Fraunces's connection to the Philadelphia President's House as Steward the Fraunces project spilled over and we currently have a database of George Washington's enslaved. The database includes over 3,000 people who are descendants of Geroge Washington's enslaved and other free blacks from Fairfax County Virginia. It is slow posting these lines but we will check names for you and any inquiries, corrections and additions are always welcome.
