George Woolsey Sr. was apprenticed in 1604 to Nicholas Cuttinge, grocer, of Great yarmouth. George served out his apprenticeship and was enrolled as a Freeman of Great Yarmouth in 1611, at which time he took on his younter brother Philip Woolsey, as an apprentice. As George, Sr approached the end of his apprenticeship and anticipated his gaining his journeymans entry into the Guild of Grocers in Great Yarmouth, he married Frances Roberts, possibly of Great yarmouth. They must have been married in Langhale-cum-Kirstead as no record of their marriage has been found in Great yarmouth, probably in the latter part of 1610..
At this time, the Dutch were leaders in world trade, and George, Sr. took his family to Rotterdam, Holland, sometime before 1623, where in that year, he was called a tobacconist, indicating an importer and trader. He remained in Rotterdam, in South Holland, until he died sometime during the week of 21 October and 28 October 1629.
