" Sir George Waterman, son of John Waterman, Mayor A.D. 1674, a vintner at the King's Arms, Southwark; he lived at the Helmet in Thames Street. M.P. for Westminster. His daughter married Judge Jeffries." NOTE from Craig Sheldon: Although Wadmore states that a daughter of Waterman married Judge Jeffries, it seems he may have been confused with Sir Thomas Bloodworth, Mayor of London during the Great Fire of 1666; his daughter, Anne Bloodworth, married Judge George Jeffreys.

"Arms: Paly of six argent and gules, three cresents countercharged."
