George b.1689 lived in Grindon. His family developed non-conformist tendencies. He died in Grindon in 1751. He had two sons, George and Isaac. Isaac died in his late 20s unmarried and George moved from Grindon to Kemberton. The church records for the family are not easy to follow because of the non-conformist belief. Either there is no entry in the local Church of England parish register or a number of children are christened en block. Many entries are to be found at Madeley and Kemberton.

The majority (possibly all) of Tittertons in South Africa are descended from William. The family returned to England on a number of occasions.
