Parish records of Cranfield, England give George Wheeler's baptism as March 23, 1605/6.

George, his wife, KATHERINE (PINN) WHEELER, and three of their children probably came to America from Cranfield Parish, Bedfordshire, England around 1638/39. Although the names of the parents of George are not clear, it is evident that he had two brothers who also came to Concord, Captain Timothy Wheeler and Captain Thomas Wheeler.

The name, George Wheeler, appears in the Concord records from the time they were first kept until his death. He owned jointly with his brother, Timothy, considerable property including the original part of what is now The Colonial Inn in Concord (pictured at right). Together, the brothers owned most of the property left by Rev. Peter Bulkley. George possessed land in every part of the town including Brook Meadows, Fairhaven Meadow, The Cranefield, Walden Goose Pond, Fint's Pond, etc. His home lot and house consisted of eleven acres.

He took the oath of freeman on June 2, 1641.
In 1644, a petition was signed by George, Thomas & Joseph Wheeler and Robert Meriam on behalf of Mr. Ambrose Martin for compassion.
On May 14, 1645, a petition was presented to the Town of Concord signed by George & Timothy Wheeler regarding the division of lands. At this time, George Wheeler received 20 acres of land. He was chosen to be an overseer of the south quarter.
