George was born in Granchester and baptised there on 17 February 1850. He was the son of Edward and Maria and grew up at Merton Lane, Granchester where his father was a shoemaker. George trained as a blacksmith  and in November 1870 was accused of ‘using obscene language in Silver Street and resisting [a police] officer in the execution  of his duty’.  Two of his friends were also charged and all three were found guilty. They were fined 20s and costs or 10 days imprisonment, and were told by the Mayor that they were lucky that they had not been imprisoned for six months.

He married Sarah Hill on 17 April 1873 in Linton and they had at least two children: Alice Maria (1874-1958) and Dora Lilian (1882-1856). George worked as a blacksmith and the family lived at Newmarket Road (1881) and Argyle Street (1891). He died at 199 Mill Road aged 50 years old.
