Col. George 
Mason
1690 - 1735


Col. George 
Mason
, He was justice of the peace and sheriff of Stafford county in 1713; like his father and grandfather, he was county lieutenant and commander-in-chief of the county militia, receiving his commission from Governor Spottswood in 1719. His position enabled him to extend courtesies to the Scotch merchants and their agents in Virginia, who were becoming interested in the settlement and trade of the colony. Colonel Mason was made burgess and guild brother of the city of Glasgow in 1720. He represented Stafford county in the Virginia assembly in 1718-23-26; owned large estates on both sides of the Potomac in Virginia and Maryland. While residing on one of his estates in Maryland he was drowned in attempting to cross the river. Colonel Mason was one of fifty gentlemen adventurers who accompanied Governor Spottswood in 1716 on his famous expedition across the Blue Ridge Mountains, and by drinking the health of his Majesty on the summit of Mt. George he became qualified to receive at the hands of the order the title of "Knight of the Golden Horseshoe," and to wear a gold horseshoe in token thereof. Issue.
