    • George Hand was born in East Hampton, Long Island, NY. He married but her name is unknown. He was on the petit jury in Cape May in 1706; commissioned a Justice of County Court in 1713; was one of the founders of the First Presbyterian Church in Cold . Spring, NJ in 1714; and appointed in 1716 a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. George's house still exists on North St., Cape May as a private residence. In the Victorian era it was called the Blue Pig, a gambling house and reputed house of ill-repute. This house is not to be confused with the current tavern called The Blue Pig near Congress Hall. The Blue Pig was located at 15 North St in Cape May on the corner of North and Windsor. A contributor {Edmund Peckiconis} grew up at 12 North St in the 70's and he remembered it across the street. It was on the corner and had a side window you could look out both ways down the street rumored to be for looking for police coming to break up gambling ring. His will was dated 21 JUN 1758 and probated 1 AUG 1758. His son, Thomas, was executor. It named 7 children all born in Cape May; George II 1700, Thomas 1705, Jeremiah 1706, Nathan 1710, Daniel d. 1768, Eunice and Sarah d. 1777
