Research Notes

Parentage unknown. Father is possibly a vague George Scott I. No known link to Scot's Hall. Varnell-40 12:13, 15 July 2015 (EDT)
Until further confirmation of George's own ancestry can be found, he's being detached from all older Scotts, as well as from wife Maude Pigot. There is no evidence that he was the son of William Scott of Scotts Hall, Brabourne, Kent.
MERGE & EDITING NOTICE: George Scott (b abt 1495; d btw Oct 1547-Feb 1548), ancestor of Thomas Scott of Ipswich and his sister Ursula Scott who married Richard Kimball, is the furthest-back confirmed ancestor, according to John B. Threlfall's 1990 work in which he disproves 1896 claims by Harold Bowen that George was descended of the renowned Scott family of Braebourne and Scotshall, Kent.
NOTE: there is no such discussion / disproving in Threlfall's book. Smith-32867 09:20, 2 April 2017 (EDT)

Thanks for maintaining this profile!

Did Threlfall say he was buried 1562 or 1547? The 2 Oct 1547 will of George Scott of Bradfield St. Georgeis pretty widely available and it seems that it was listed as proved in 1547 also in the prerogative court of Canterbury I don't have access to Fifty Great Migration Colonists so wasn't sure what date it proposes. I think the Douglas Richardson works (royal titled et al) should not be relied on too heavily.

As far as I can tell, I am not related to George Scott. If it would help, I can remove myself as a profile manager. I'm not pre-1500s certified, so I can't work on this profile anyway.
