According to the 1752 passenger list taken by John Robinson aboard the ship "Sally", Hendrick Beeker (a name later written as Becker and Baker) was a Mason from the central Hesse province of Germany. Accompanying him was his 20 year old son Johannes. Potential sons Bernard and George are not noted on the passenger list as adults and therefore may have been teenagers at the time.[1]

I am guessing at George's parentage, but there must have been a George Baker about this age. As in 1784 George Baker son of George Baker marries Magdalena Wolf. It is possible this is the son of George "Beckner" who came over in the same migration of people and may have had his name anglicized to Baker as well.

More research required, for now this is a placeholder for a potential George Baker that must have existed.
