The Lost German Colony: Germans settled in Northern Virginia as early as 1714. In 1719, twelve German families established German Town about 8 miles southeast of present Warrenton. It was the first European settlement in present Fauquier County. This German frontier settlement predates the important Northern Virginia Colonial town of Alexandria, VA (1749). The German Town settlers arrived in Williamsburg, VA, in April 1714, on their journey to Northern Virginia. They hailed from the area of Siegen (east of Bonn). Their family names were Brumbach, Fischbach, etc. - by Gary Carl Grassl (This article is based in part on research by Mary Wuest).
