About George Haile

George Hale, son of William Hale, Esq., of King's Walden, and wife Rose Bond, was born July 13, 1601 in Hertfordshire, England. Many believe that he was the original Hale or Hale emigrant to Virginia. This is not well proven, but more information is below.

Those who do not believe that this is the emigrant point out that this George was the son of a well-to-do landowner from Hertfordshire and the emigrant was an indentured servant. Also, George the emigrant is believed to be from Kent, not from Hertfordshire.
