      Peter George, was from Braintree and was among Block Island's first settlers. He was at Braintree early and undoubtedly came from co. Suffolk, England, where the name was quite widely spread. It may be noted that in the Suffolk Subsidy of 1524, a Peter George was living in the famous cloth town of Lavenham in that county. Peter George married the widow of the first Simon Ray of Braintree, who died in 1641, and his step-son, the revered Simon Ray of New Shoreham, was brought up in his family. They went together to the Island in the first settlement. Peter George was a prominent member of the new town and was Head Warden in 1676. He died in 1694. [2]
