George is at home when Holly comes in to tell them about Jamie Tyler.
When Jamie comes to stay at Rita and John's house, it appears that George is jealous of him and the attention . He doesn't talk to him. At school, Jamie and George get into a fight, after George apparently goads Jamie.
When Miss Keyland calls the police about Jamie, they round up the Villagers in the square. When no one knows where Jamie is, the police kill everyone. However George manages to escape but is shot in the process. He finds Holly, Jamie and the Traveller about to be shot by a policeman. Although he is injured, he hits the police man over the head with a cricket bat, and picks up his machine gun. He creates a diversion whilst the others flee onto the Lady Jane. As they leave, Holly hears a scream and knows that George has died.
He is eighteen years old. He is described as rather plump, although muscular due to working at the village bakery, he had blond hair and blue eyes.
He is quite quiet. Although he does not look like much, according to Holly, she would choose him to stick up for herself. Holly loves him like a brother.
