Before European settlement, Native Americans living in the area included the Dogue Indians on the north side of the Rappahannock near the entrance of Dogue Creek.
Cuttatawomen were at Lamb's Creek on the Rappahannock River.
The Potowmack Indians were near the Stafford and King George boundary and used the Friendly Cottage area as a camping ground for the Indians.
King George County was formed in 1720, out of Richmond County Virginia. It was named for King George I of England.
The boundaries were from Richmond County to Fauquier County, and had no contact with the Potomac River until the boundaries were changed in 1776, to run from Westmoreland to Stafford.
Ferry Farm, where George Washington lived for about 10 years, was located in King George County. It was here where Parson Weems told that George said to his father "I shall not tell a lie, I cut down your cherry tree."
The fourth President of the United States, James Madison, was born in Port Conway on March 16, 1751 at Belle Grove Plantation located in southern King George County.
