By the terms of George's father's will, proved 1801, income from his father's property at Hempnall, Norfolk was to provide for his upkeep and education until he reached the age of 21, and afterwards to be sold and the proceeds of the sale to be divided among the children of James and Winifred Thurtell or their heirs. George Thurtell inherited his father's leased property in Flixton Parish, apparently jointly with his brothers. The 1841 and 1851 census records show him as farmer of 400 acres in that parish, employing 14 outdoor labourers in 1851. He lived at White House, Flixton, and was one of the three chief constables of the Mutford and Lothingland hundred. Elsewhere he is stated to have been 'of Lodden Hall', but this has not been confirmed (although the church at Lodden apparently has Thurtell graves). He first was married in Lowestoft to Phoebe Cleveland, who died 29 October 1810, aged30. He was married for the second time in Gunton, Suffolk to Eliza Jenner He was married for the third time to Harriet Jenner, who was born at Lound, Suffolk (sister of Eliza), and who was aged 59 in 1851. George Thurtell, wives Phoebe and Eliza, and daughters Sarah and Phoebe,are buried at the church in Blundeston.
