FROST, George, jurist, born in New Castle, New Hampshire, 26 April 1720; died in Durham, New Hampshire, 21 June 1796. He was a son of John Frost, a commander in the British navy, who died in 1732. The son received a public school education, and was brought up in the counting house of his uncle, Sir William Pepperell, at Kittery Point, near Portsmouth, N.H. About 1740 he entered one of his uncle's vessels as supercargo and captain, and was a seaman for about twenty years, becoming a partner with George Richards, of London. About 1760 he returned to his old home in New Castle, and resided there until his marriage in 1764 in Durham, New Hampshire, where he removed in 1769. He was judge of common pleas of Stafford County from 1773 till 1791, and for many years chief justice. He was a delegate to the Continental congress in 1777'9, and was executive councilor in 1781'4.
