Information:

1661:
George arrived with his father and the rest of the family from New York. Due to a misunderstanding, he is listed as "George Pauleson" son of Michael Pauleson, rather than the correct Dutch name of George Michaelson. This is probably why he became known as George Paul Vanderford. [Skordas,1968]

October - November 1678:
George was paid 300 pounds of tobacco for taking part in the expedition against the Nanticoke Indians. [Archives, Vol.VII]

February 20, 1783:
George witnessed two deeds for John Hollingsworth. [Leonard,1988]

1687:
George bought 150 acres called Astor on Hambleton's Branch in Talbot County, Maryland. The purchase price was 6000 pounds of tobacco, of which half was owed. [TC deed KK5:109]

November 30, 1690, recorded Sept. 20, 1692:
Michael's will made his son, George, a co-executor and gave him first choice of his estate after it had been divided into as many shares as he had children. [TC will 6:5]

April 23, 1698:
George was named an executor of John Hollingsworth, Sr.'s will. (John Hollingsworth was probably his father-in-law.) [Baldwin,1968]

February 21, 1699:
George witnessed the will of his sister Catherine's husband, Arthur Emory, Sr. [Baldwin,1968]

January 11, 1702:
George witnessed the will of John Bowles. [Baldwin,1968]

August 25, 1715:
Charles (George's son) and Catherine Pryor (George's sister) sold St. Pauls and Carmans Neck which George and Catherine had inherited from their father, Michael Paul; therefore George must have died before this date. [QA deed IKA:45]
