George was born in Chapel en le Frith in 1785, the son of Edward and Martha, and baptised there on 11th March (1). He had elder sisters Sarah, Martha and Elizabeth, and an elder brother Edward (2). A younger sister, Jenny, was born two years later (3). He also had a sister Sally (whose date of birth is not known is not known), but she died in 1794 (4). He initially followed his father into the butchery trade (5).

He married Jane Hall on 25th November 1806 at St Thomas a Becket's in Chapel en le Frith (5), and to start with they settled there, where their first child John was born the following August (6).

Sometime over the next couple of years they moved to Little Hucklow (7), where Jane originally came from (8), and George gave up butchery to work as a labourer (11)(13)(14)(15). Their next son, George, was born there towards the end of 1809 (7). Unfortunately he died the following summer (9). They had a daughter Martha in 1812 (10), then another son, Edward, in 1814 (11), but he only lived for about a year (12). A aon William followed in 1816 (13), then their youngest daughter Hannah in 1821 (14), and finally, the youngest son, Thomas, was born in 1823 (15). The youngest daughter, Hannah, died in 1829 (16).

George died in Little Hucklow in 1835, aged 50, and was buried in Hope on 21st September (17).
