Reverend Lawrence Washington (1602 – 21 January 1653) was an English rector, and the great-great-grandfather of George Washington. During the Civil War he was among more than one hundred ministers who were deprived of their livings by order of the Puritan Parliament.

Lawrence was educated at Brasenose College, Oxford, where he graduated B.A. in 1623; was a Fellow of the college from 1624-33, proceeded M.A. in 1626; became a Proctor and lector in 1631 and obtained a B.D. degree in 1632; He became rector of Purleigh, a wealthy living, in April 1633; In 1643 Parliament ordered the living of Purleigh to be sequestered and the Rev. Lawrence Washington ejected; The Civil War was in progress. He was accused as a "alignant Royalist" and "oft drunk", but the later charge was refuted. From that time he was allowed to hold only the very small, poor living of Little Braxted, near Maldonin Essex;

The Rev. Lawrence Washington died in poverty. His son John immigrated to Virginia and put down roots; John's great grandson was President George Washingotn.
