George's birth recorded in the St. Peter's Parish vestry in August of 1739, would make it impossible that his father was the George Poindexter recorded there as dying in July of 1738. The records make plain that two previous Georges had died in 1692 and 1716. This is one of the reason that he is judged to be the 5th George Poindexter. Also a George with wife Susannah, parents of George B. indicate that there was a mature George Poindexter living there after 1738 and before any of his children reached age 21.
George B. Poindexter recorded the dates of his marriages and the births of his children in the Parish Register on 18 May 1790; stated himself to be in his 51st year of his age.

He came to America about 1670 when he was appointed Auditor General of Virginia. He had two sons, John and Philip, that were brought to America - their mother has proved elusive to researchers and is unknown. Capt. John's brother William in England was appointed executor of the estate in England to administer for the use of John and Philip "living in parts beyond the seas" - the sons would have been in their mid-thirties at that time. Frances herself descends from the son John who lived in New Kent Co, dying there in May of 1707.
