The daughter of Ann Randolph Fitzhugh and William Fitzhugh (1741-1809), a member of the Continental Congress, she was most likely born at Chatham, in Stafford County, Virginia. On July 7, 1804, she married George Washington Parke Custis, an orator, playwright, and writer. They lived at Arlington, an 1,100-acre plantation in Alexandria County, Virginia. Of their four daughters, only Mary Anna Randolph Custis, who later married Robert Edward Lee, survived childhood.
