Note: Sheriff of Essex MA during the Salem Witch trials. Died of a heart attack in 1696. Was said to have been cursed by Giles Corey �Damn you Sheriff I curse you and Salem!�.
That one so young as George (only 27) should have been appointed sheriff, may be explained by the circumstances that his uncle, Jonathan Corwin, his maternal uncle, Wait Winthrop, and his father-in-law, were among the judges of the Court of Oyer and Terminer.
