Best answer

from the Great Migration Directory

Bliss, George:  Unknown; 1639 Sandwich, Newport [PCR 1:149; Austin 22, Aaron Tyler Bliss, 'Genealogy of the Bliss Family in America', 3 volumes (Midland, Michigan, 1982) {but see TAG 59:25-27}].  (The proposed English origin for this immigrant should be revisited.)

Unknown means Unknown English origin.  He arrived 1639 with New England residences Sandwich and Newport (matches your profile) 

PCR refers to 'Records of the Colony of New Plymouth in New England', Nathaniel B Shurleff and David Pulsifer, eds., 12 volumes in 10 (Boston 1855-1861)

I checked that reference, but I don't see it in Vol 1  Records of the Colony of New England

TAG refers to The American Genealogist, Vol 9 to present (1932+)

I found the entry in the Bliss Family, Vol 1, pg 36.  You have to 'borrow' it but you might be able to see it from this link Genealogy of the Bliss Family for George Bliss #3

Thanks Linda. Here he is in PCR: https://archive.org/details/cu31924082456553/page/n169/mode/2up
Second from the bottom in the list on the right side.

That's not the page I was looking at in PCR, so I will have to figure out what I was looking at. Well, at least you found it.
I used the 1st link on the space page which was a combined Vol 1 & 2.  I had looked at Vol 2, page 149, in that link, which had the 'page' in the url with 'n' in front of it.  Vol 2 has the Page number in the url without the preceeding 'n'.
