George was born at Great Driffield, the second son of George Etherington (later knighted) and Elisabeth Robinson. He married (as 'George Etherington of Driffield') to Mary Chapman ('of Holy Trinity Hull') at Holy Trinity on 11/9/1619.

He was granted Skirlington Manor by his father, but sold it in 1631 and later lived as Swine, NE of Hull. Two of his children may have been baptised at Hedon, 10km SE of Swine, and a third was baptised at Atwick, 21km NE of Swine (near Skirlington).

The LDS Ancestral File incorretly gives his birthplace as Whitby.


Daughter Frances was christened on Oct 7,1638[1]


George was buried on Jan 16, 1653[2]
