Eight US Presidents Were Born British

The United States declared its independence from the Kindgom of Great Britian on July 4, 1776. Eight of the first nine Presidents were born before the United States even existed.

They were born in British America, the area that would later make up parts of the United States and Canada. Therefore, these men were technically British subjects at birth.

Name Birthday Birthplace
George Washington 2/22/1732 Westmoreland, Virginia
John Adams 10/30/1735 Quincy, Massachusetts
Thomas Jefferson 4/13/1743 Shadwell, Virginia
James Madison 3/16/1751 Port Conway, Virginia
James Monroe 4/28/1758 Westmoreland, Virginia
John Quincy Adams 7/11/1767 Quincy, Massachusetts
Andrew Jackson 3/15/1767 Waxhaws Area (NC/SC)
William Henry Harrison 2/9/1773 Charles City County, Virginia

*Some of the birthplaces mentioned above were not known by these same names at the time of their birth.

These were all consecutive presidents, except for Harrison. He succeeded Martin Van Buren, who was born in 1782, making him American by birth.

    I really enjoy this fact! I love that they were all born in North America, even though it was under British Rule at the time. It’s a neat little loop-hole/different way to think about history. Thanks!

    And absolutely NONE of those was born AFTER 1776 which is what the constitution states to be president, must be a natural born citizen and a US citizen at the time of this adoption. any one BORN after 1776 must be natural born. You need a new list

      If the founders meant for a president to just be a US citizens after 1776 there would be NO reason at all to include natural born. Now would there?
