George Elinor was the son of George Pownall and his wife, Elizabeth Hewitt Pownall.

He married Elinor Carter about 1665 in Alderley, Great Warford, Cheshire, England. They had six children: Reuben about 1667, Elizabeth in 1670, Sarah in 1672, Rachel in 1675, Abigail about 1667 and George (Jr.) in 1682.

The family -- including the couple, five children and three servants -- migrated from Lostock Gralam, Cheshire, England to Solebury, Bucks Co., Pennsylvania on the ship 'Friends Adventure,' arriving on Sep. 28, 1682 (28th day of 7th month, 1682).

The arrival date used above is from the Gregorian calendar. Quaker religious records from the period used the Julian calendar, which began the year in March.

George (Sr.) died when a tree fell on him a month after arrival, and George (Jr.) was born in Solebury twelve days later.
