Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
Col. Henry Washington appears to have been a descendant (4th generation) of the same family (in another branch) as the American General George Washington (7th generation).
One genealogy page states "Col. Henry Washington ... held Worcester of the King and fought for him at Edgehill in 1642."http://members.tripod.com/~Bonestwo/index-22.html
An English Civil War re-enactment page mentions a group called Col. Henry Washington's Dragoons. So perhaps you can still fight for him if you want to!
