The parish registers of Steeple Aston show that the George family was in the parish from at least 1540.   


The earliest confirmed ancestor is John George the blacksmith of the village.  He died in 1668 and in his will he left half his smith's shop and tools to his grandson Robert, together with boxes and coffers standing in the shop. The other half went to Robert's father also Robert,  on condition that he did not alter or diminish the boxes and coffers during his son's lifetime!


These three blacksmiths all lived through the civil war; perhaps because of this, no record of their marriages has been found


Robert's youngest daughter continued the tradition by marrying another blacksmith in a neighbouring village
