Virginians who Attended Oxford University #vagenealogy #virginiapioneersnet

Virginians who Attended Oxford University

Augustine Washington and his son Lawrence, the young Virginians were sent to school in England. More often, however, the education began at the country school or with private tutors and was "finished" (as the phrase goes) at one of the English universities. Oxford seems to have been the favorite Alma Mater.Young James Madison, however, was first tutored by the parish minister and an excellent Scotch schoolmaster and later sent to Princeton College where he was graduated in 1772.
