Belvoir bustled with activities typical of estates during this era. Family members, slaves, and guests were part of daily life at Belvoir. Nearby plantation residents traveled in the same circles, the Fairfaxes, the Washingtons, and the Masons were active in the Pohick Church vestry and attended each others social functions. All three daughters of William Fairfax married in the house; Anne Fairfax married Lawrence Washington, George Washington's elder half brother in 1743; Sarah Fairfax married John Carlyle of Alexandria in 1752; and Hannah married Warner Washington in 1763.
