You haven't said which in country you are looking for military records.
From a brief search on Google,  it would seem all these people are well recorded - in the US.

for example:
https://www.geni.com/people/Colonel-Augustine-Warner-II/5493317273870085174

Augustine Washington 1694 here
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Washington-222

https://www.geni.com/people/Col-George-Reade-Esq-Acting-Gov/6000000006803245420
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Reade-10

And many, many more

In case you don't know, you get more specific searching on Google if you put speech marks around a  name.
eg "Colonel George Reade"

Thanks, did say England, the family starts out there. Was wondering if there was any site for physical military records we can look up, rather than write ups on the family. Thanks for the links. I'll keep looking
