    Har­ri­son was born April 5, 1726, in Charles City County, Vir­ginia; he was the old­est of ten chil­dren of Ben­jamin Har­ri­son IV and Anne Carter; Anne was a daugh­ter of Robert Carter I. The first Ben­jamin Har­ri­son ar­rived in the colonies around 1630, and by 1633 began a fam­ily tra­di­tion of pub­lic ser­vice, when he was recorded as Clerk of the Vir­ginia Gov­er­nor's Coun­cil. Ben­jamin II and Ben­jamin III fol­lowed this ex­am­ple, serv­ing as del­e­gates in the Vir­ginia House of...

    Inheritance and slaveholding

    Har­ri­son's fa­ther, at age 51, and with a child in hand, was struck by light­ning as he shut an up­stairs win­dow dur­ing a storm on July 12, 1745; he and daugh­ter Han­nah were killed. Ben­jamin V in­her­ited the bulk of his fa­ther's es­tate, in­clud­ing Berke­ley and a num­ber of sur­round­ing plan­ta­tions, as well as thou­sands of acres ex­tend­ing to Surry County and the falls of the James River. Also among his hold­ings was a fish­ery on the river and a grist mill in Hen­rico County....

    Marriage and children

    Har­ri­son in 1748 mar­ried Eliz­a­beth Bas­sett of New Kent County; she was the daugh­ter of Col. William Bas­sett and Eliz­a­beth Churchill. Har­ri­son and wife had eight chil­dren dur­ing their 40-year marriage. Among them was el­dest daugh­ter Lucy Bas­sett (1749–1809) who mar­ried Pey­ton Ran­dolph. An­other daugh­ter, Anne Bas­sett (1753–1821), mar­ried David Cou­p­land. The el­dest son was Ben­jamin Har­ri­son VI (1755–1799), a briefly suc­cess­ful mer­chant who served in the Vir­ginia...

    Ben­jamin Har­ri­son V in 1749 first took the path of his fa­ther in being elected to the Vir­ginia House of Burgesses, ini­tially for Surry County; how­ever, he was not then of legal age to as­sume his burgesses seat, which was de­layed until 1752. His county rep­re­sen­ta­tions in the Burgesses were as follows: 1. 1752–1761 – Surry County 2. 1766...

    In 1773, colonists protested the British tax on tea by de­stroy­ing a ship­ment dur­ing the Boston Tea Party. While all of the colonies were in­spired by the news, some pa­tri­ots, in­clud­ing Har­ri­son, had mis­giv­ings, and be­lieved the Bosto­ni­ans had a duty to re­im­burse the East India Com­pany for its losses at their hands. The British Par...

    When the Sec­ond Con­ti­nen­tal Con­gress con­vened in May 1775, Har­ri­son took up res­i­dence in north Philadel­phia with two room­mates—his brother-in-law Pey­ton Ran­dolph and George Wash­ing­ton. The two men left him to re­side on his own when Ran­dolph sud­denly died, and Wash­ing­ton as­sumed com­mand of the Con­ti­nen­tal Army.Har­ri­son wa...

    From De­cem­ber 1775 until March 1777, the Con­gress was on two oc­ca­sions threat­ened by British forces, and forced to re­move it­self—first to Bal­ti­more and later to York, Penn­syl­va­nia–cir­cum­stances that Har­ri­son dis­tinctly dis­liked. This has been at­trib­uted to some un­spec­i­fied ill-health he was ex­pe­ri­enc­ing at the time. In 1...

    The new na­tion se­cured its Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War vic­tory in Oc­to­ber 1781 at York­town, Vir­ginia–this pro­vided only brief respite for Har­ri­son, who began to serve a month later as the fifth Gov­er­nor of Virginia. He was also the fourth gov­er­nor to as­sume the of­fice in that year–the mul­ti­ple suc­ces­sions were oc­ca­sioned by wartime ...

    In 1786, Har­ri­son and other mem­bers of the leg­is­la­ture were deeply di­vided over the issue of state aid to re­li­gion. He joined with his brother and fel­low del­e­gate, Carter Henry Har­ri­son, in sup­port­ing a mea­sure of­fered by Patrick Henry to pro­vide funds for teach­ers of the Chris­t­ian re­li­gion. The pro­posal failed, and the as­...
