George Martin immigrated to New England in 1639 and settled in Salisbury. He and his first wife, Hannah, had one daughter. Hannah died before August 11, 1646 when he married Susannah North, the daughter of Richard North and Joan Bartram. George and Susannah had eight children. Through their daughter Jane, they are the 5th Great Grandparents of U.S. President Chester A. Arthur.

The family moved to Amesbury by 1654 where George Martin is recognized as one of the first settlers. When Amesbury was incorporated in 1666, he appears on the list of voters and commoners (those who owned a share in all the undivided and common lands of the town). Goerge and Susannah Martin also appear on the list of Amesbury Meeting House seats in July 1667. George Martin's will was probated 23 Nov 1686.

In 1692 his widow, Susannah Martin, was accused of withcraft by residents of Salem Village (now Danvers). She was arrested, tried without representation of council, convicted, and hanged in Salem, July 19, 1692.
