George Alcock
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1601, England
Death: Dec., 1640
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Born by about 1601, based on estimated date of first marriage. A butcher who came to Massachusetts Bay in 1630 & settled in Roxbury. Buried in Roxbury 30 December 1640.
MARRIAGES: (1) By 1626 (Anne?) Hooker, sister of THOMAS HOOKER; she died during the winter of 1630/1.
(2) in England in late 1634 or early 1635, Elizabeth _____; she married (2) in April 1641 Dr. Henry Deengaine of Watertown, Dedham, Roxbury and Boston.
Brother of THOMAS ALCOCK of Boston and Dedham (bequest in George's will) and of Elizabeth Whitehead of Leamington Priors, Warwickshire, whose sons John and Thomas were in New Haven by 1641.
Most secondary sources state that George Alcock was a physician, but no primary source has been found to support this. Two possible reasons for such a false assumption suggest themselves: 1) both his sons were physicians of note, and George's widow married a physician, all of which may have been reflected back on George; and 2) he was for both Dorchester and Roxbury churches a deacon, and some modern writer may have mistaken the abbreviation "Dn." for "Dr."
