George Etherington, the second son of Thomas Etherington (d 1589) inherited most of his father's estates in Driffield. A lawyer, he was Driffield highest tax payer from 1600-10. In 1608, he acquired the manor of Newton Garth near Hull which became his principal residence. He was knighted in 1618 but died in 1622 (post mortem inquisition) and his estates were inherited by by eldest son Richard, who died (probably without issue) at Newton Garth in 1628. His second son, George, was granted the manor of Skirlington by his father in 1620, but later settled at Swine, near Hull. His descendants were merchants in Hull, and included two Mayors of Hull, the second raised to a baronet.

The LDS Ancestral File AFN KKRS-RD incorrectly gives his birthplace as Whitby rather than Driffield but is otherwise is correct.
