GEORGE BRUCE (d. by 1659)
George Bruce died before 21 Jul 1701, when he is referred to as deceased in a deed. [Ref] He may have been the George Bruce who died on 13 Aug 1692 in Woburn, but the record 'George Bruce, s. of __ d. 13 Aug 1692' looks more like a child's. [Ref] He married Elizabeth Clark on 20 Dec 1659 in Woburn. [Ref]
No connection between George and Thomas Bruce of Sudbury and Marlborough has been found. [Ref]
George Brush [sic] was a freeman in Woburn on 18 Apr 1690. [Ref]
Samuel Walker, the future father-in-law of George's daughter Margery, petitioned the Middlesex county Court at Cambridge to allow him to sell 'strong waters'. His petition, granted in Apr 1662, was signed by many residents of Woburn, including George Bruce. [Ref]
