Upon the Restoration in England in 1660, George Blakiston's property was confiscated. However, the Corporation of Newcastle granted him £500, as it was cited that "he did many good services for this town." So it was that in 1668, he and his family immigrated to Maryland. The family established themselves in St. Mary's County. His estate was conducted in 30 September 1669 by his son, John.
