      George immigrated to MD before 1663. George's will was probated December 1, 1675 in St. Marys Co, Md. George Marshall had married Adria Potter by September 10, 1663 when he petitioned the court, "being married to the Daughter of Henry Potter," that he had an interest in sevants who made a crop with William Green (Adria's stepfather) and James Woosey in 1662 and,having disposed of part of the tobacco to satisfy William Green's debts. William Green stands indebted to him. He evidently emigrated to Maryland by 1663, for on December 4, 1663 he demanded land for transporting himself, Anthony Welch, Lewis Ellis, Thomas Vaughn, Richard Jones, and Hugh Carmean. He assigned his rights to 300 acres of land to William Moor. Being commanded out to march against the Indians he made his will September 2, 1675 in St. Marys Co, leaving his estate to son "Adryan" Marshall. Thomas Potter (his brother-in-law) was to be the executor.
