About George Hale

Evidence needed to support the claim he is the same as George Hale, of Jamestown

Children of William Hale and wife Rose Bond:

4. George Hale, c. 13 Jul 1601, Herefordshire,England

George was an indentured servant. He married a young woman of English blood in 1626

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.

George Hale (or Haile) left Bristol, England on the ship "Supply" and arrived in "James Cittie" (Jamestown), Virginia in 1620. George was an indentured servant. He married a young woman of English blood in 1626 and had a son, Nicholas, in 1628. Grandson Nicholas went to Baltimore with his sister Mary (Heale) King after Nicholas' death in 1671. <>

Nicholas was born in 1628 near Elizabeth City VA. His father was George Hale who sailed from Bristol Eng. in 1620 on the Supply and is listed as "George Hale, a drummer, age 18 years." He landed at Elizabeth City in the fall and lived with Sir Wyatt Governor of the colony. George was born in 1601 at Kings Walden, Hertfordshire,England at the Hale Manor House (which they owned 1575-1898).

His father was William, son of Richard (1536-1620), whose father was Thomas of Codicote , whose father was Edward Hales, whose father was Gilbert Hales, whose father was Henry Hales , whose father was Thomas Hales , whose father was Nicholas Hales, whose father was Nicholas Hales of Hales Place Halden in the County of Kent, England. [hmmm--there had to be some mothers in there too!]

George Haile's wife was named Elizabeth. They had three sons; Francis, Nicholas and Thomas. Francis was the father of Capt. Richard Haile of his majesty's Dragoons and his wife was named Jane; Richard m. Mary, fathered John Haiale of South Farnham Parrish in Essex County. The children of John Haile and Mary Fullerton are john, Francis (--d. Bedford, 1780, m. Adara Meador), Thomas, Benjamin, Mary, and Susanna. [ <>].

The only information I have is:

George Haile Born about 1602 in Bristol, England. He was a passenger on the Ship "Supply" that landed in Virginia in 1620. His occupation was a Drummer or Salesman. He married around 1626, wife unknown. His known children were John, Thomas and Nicholas Haile Senior. He died about 1662 in Lancaster County, Virginia.

Other people on say his father was Nicholas Haile, but I have no clue if that is right or not.

I am a seventh generation decendant of the first Nicholas Haile of Virginia. I was personally acquainted with Maude Crowe. She did us all a great disservice with her sloppy research and by making a completely unwarranted connection with the drummer boy on the Supply. There is no documentation to support this. I have never seen any reliable link beyond the first Nicholas going back to England. Unfortunately the internet spreads a lot of misleading information. [8] Hale name meaning

English (also well established in South Wales): topographic name for someone who lived in a nook or hollow, from Old English and Middle English hale, dative of h(e)alh ‘nook’, ‘hollow’. In northern England the word often has a specialized meaning, denoting a piece of flat alluvial land by the side of a river, typically one deposited in a bend. In southeastern England it often referred to a patch of dry land in a fen. In some cases the surname may be a habitational name from any of the several places in England named with this fossilized inflected form, which would originally have been preceded by a preposition, e.g. in the hale or at the hale.
