1796            George Hill Scard was born in 1796, very likely at Stratford Wiltshire, the son of Benness Scard and his wife Mary nee Hill. 
                    His mother was descended from the wealthy Hill Family of Nursling, Hampshire.  George had three known siblings;
                                                                         Elizabeth Scard [c1793-1794] Elizabeth Scard buried 1st January 1794 recorded 'infant'  at Nursling

1815            George was aged eighteen when his maternal grandmother, Susannah Benness was buried 9th November 1815 at nearby Eling.

1816            The following year George's sister Harriet Maria Scard died prematurely,  buried at St. Boniface, Nursling  10th July 1816 recorded aged 21 yrs
                                                        She was noted on the Parish Record 'of Stratford' where the family was formerly living.
1817             In 1817 George now aged twenty-one was still living at Nursling when with his maternal grandfather George Hill leased a property there on the 14th June 1817.

1820              By the age of twenty four George had returned to or with his parents to Wiltshire where he was mentioned as victim/witness in a proceeding at the Wiltshire 
                      Quarter Sessions on the 11th July 1820. George noted of 'Downtown'  His father, Benness was also familiar of the Quarter Sessions having appeared as 
                      witness/ victim at the same Court twice before.

1820              Later that year George's maternal Grandfather George Hill died testate in 1820.

1824             George's paternal grandfather, Thomas Scard died testate 1824, Georges's father, Benness Scard and his paternal uncle John Scard were executors. 
                     George's father returned to Nursling a year later in 1825 and remained there until his death in 1837. George and his sister Eliza were legatees in his Will. 

1825             By the age of twenty-nine George had gone into Sole ownership after dissolving partnership with A.Fletcher Iron and Brass Founders,  advertised in the Salisbury 
                     London Gazette & The Salisbury Winchester Journal 17th January 1825.

Relationship 1: Eliza Scard base born daughter of Sarah TUESLEY baptised 18th February 1826 at Wymering - Noted "Base Born". (Knightroots) Maria Harriet Hill Scard/Tursley Scard "noted daughter of Sarah Tursley and George Hill Scard" baptised 15th November 1829 at St. Marys Southampton - Noted: Bastard - single woman.. [HPC=Scaid - FMP] Nothing has been found to date regarding Sarah or her two children by George Scard Sarah may be the same recorded at Wymering & Widley recording a base born child James Tuersley in 1822 [Knightroots]. The HBI records only one burial for Sarah Tuersley on the 1st Nov 1828 aged 20yrs however this entry would make her aged about twelve years at the suspected birth of her first child and aged only sixteen when beginning the relationship with George Scard aged twenty-two. This is not impossible and certainly not an exception in some family histories. 1828 During this time George was the Lessor in a Mortgage to secure £3,000 for a messuage at Westhall, Upham and other property (with bond) 25th February 1828. Principals; i) George Hill Scard of Nursling, gent; ii) Messrs Bradby, Whitchurch and Butterfield (trustees of the marriage settlement of Mr and Mrs Cock). George was also then noted in several Publications of the Hampshire Telegraph on the Game Warden Lists. 1834 Sometime before 1834 George Scard formed a relationship with Elizabeth Jenkins considered to be connected to the Jenkins family of Plumstead, Kent. Relationship 2: Although a marriage has not been found, the couple recorded two children George Scard baptised 5th April 1835 at St. Marys Southampton "son of George & Elizabeth of Marine Parade, Farmer." Harriet Maria Scard baptised 11th December 1836 at St. Marys Southampton "daughter of George & Elizabeth of Marine Parade, Farmer." Harriet was the namesake of George's deceased sister Elizabeth Jenkins was the widow of William Jenkins by whom she is known to have had one daughter Matilda [born c.1826]. The 1841 Census implies that Matilda was living with them at this time. 1834 George Scard was recorded in the UK Poll Books and Electoral Registers 1538-1893 [Ancestry] 1834 George Hill Scard - Abode: Totten, Eling, Southampton -
Three Freeholds - 1, 2 ,3 at Marine Parade George's father Benness Scard and many other Scard Family Members were listed in these Books.
1836           During this time in 1836 George prepared to Lease the Land [presumably where he was living] and appears to have moved to nearby Upham, 3 miles between 
                   Bishops Waltham and Durley.           

1836           Conveyance: George Scard with several others were Lessors in a release and further charge 16-17th March 1836 for Lots 1 and 2 Marine Parade, Southampton 
                                           and two messuages and allotments and copyhold property at Bishops Waltham. 
                                                        Principals were;
                                                        i) Thomas Bradby of Southampton, esq, John Bradby of Mottisfont, esq and George Hill Scard of Upham, gent.
                                                        ii) Richard Randall of Southampton, gent.      
1838                                   Mortgage in fee by lease and release of the two freehold and copyhold estates on the 17-18 Aug 1838

                                                        i) George Hill Scard of Upham, gent   
                                                        ii) William Gilbert of Wilts, esq.

1841          By 1841 George was living at Winchester in the same house as his two youngest children, who were recorded  under the name 'Jenkins' in the care of  
                  Elizabeth Jenkins who now appears as a Land Lady running a Boarding House.

                                                                      * Matilda Jenkins, aged 15, born in County.
                                                                         George Jenkins, aged 6, born in County.

                                                                         Four illegible names [appear to be lodgers]  
                                                                         George Scard, aged 45, In dependant means, not born in County.
                                                                          *Matilda was the daughter of Elizabeth Jenkins by her deceased spouse William Jenkins. See Epilogue
                                                        George's mother, Elizabeth Scard [nee Hill] and his sister Eliza with George's spinster sister Eliza
                                                        Address:  living at Eling;
                                                                         Elizabeth Scard aged 70 [rounded] of Independent - Born in the County.

                   The 1851 Census (three years after George's death) implies that one of the three Lots at Marine Parade was retained, occupied at that time by 
                   Elizabeth 'Jenkins' and her son George.

1842           On a lighter note, George's Spinster sister Eliza has seven ducks stolen, the incident published in the Hampshire Telegraph - Monday 25th July 1842

                        George did not recognise his children in his Will possibly because they were not "lawfully begotten" they were not eligible any Estates in the Family 
                        according to the terms of previous Wills, however his son George was a legatee in the Will of his sister Eliza (1869) and further mentioned in a conveyance 
                        through George's cousin Reverend Thomas Scard in 1871. See Epilogue.
