William George is thought to be a son of Nicholas George, an English immigrant. Nicholas and his father, also named Nicholas were named in a land patent in Isle of Wight in 1657. There is also a land patent to a Nicholas George for 700 acres in Lancaster County dated 1652. Both Nicholas's left wills in Lancaster County. The younger Nicholas left his will in 1700 and named a William George as a son. His mother's name is unknown.

In 1694 William renewed the patent on 81 acres of the original 700 acres patented by Nicholas George in 1652. The land was described as "Lying on the westward branch of Corritoman River. Adjoining land of Benjamin Doggett and run. &c. on a branch of George's Creek."

William George married Elizabeth Ann Carter on June 15th, 1698. She was the daughter of Thomas Carter and Katherine Dale. William was mentioned in the 1700 will of Thomas Carter for not providing a receipt for the inheritance his wife received from her grandfather, Edward Dale. He and his wife received only one shillings from Thomas Carter because of this.

Item I do give all my personal estate whatsoever its to be Equally Divided my loving wife and children only reserving the great table to my wife whereas my son in Law hath Received fifteen hundred and sixty pounds of Tobacco in part of the estate his Grandfather in Law Edward Dale gave his wife I having no Receipt for it and if the said William George will not be accountable for it then it is my will that he shall have no part of my said estate but only one shilling sterling in full part of his wife portion

William died before February 6th, 1709 without a written will. A nuncupative will was recorded leaving the estate to his wife to bring up the children. Witnesses to this oral will were Elinour George and Benjamin Doggett. Elizabeth remarried to Robert Marshall. In 1717 a small inventory of livestock was recorded as belonging to the estate of William George. The total value was 32 pounds.
