Sir George Radcliffe was born circa 1593 in Yorkshire, England, son of Nicholas and Margaret Radcliffe. In 1609 he began studies at Oxford University, receiving his B.A. in 1612. He was a clerk at Gray's Inn for six years. In 1628 Radcliffe became King's Attorney in the Council of the North, and in 1633, a member of the Council. In 1639 he joined Sir Christopher Wandesford, a Lord Deputy, and in 1640 they were both charged with high treason and imprisoned. Radcliffe was released in 1642, and became a Doctor of Law the following year. In 1647 he was in exile in Caen. He was thought to have disobeyed the queen, so in 1651 all his property was sold. He died in 1657 in Flushing, England.
