George Knox was the son of John Knox. He married Leticia Greenfield.

From Genealogical memoirs of John Knox and of the family of Knox (Charles Rogers, 1879):
"George, the second son, went to Jamaica about the year 1798, and there attained a considerable position. As a West Indian proprietor, merchant, and shipowner, in partnership with the late Sir Simon Clark, he latterly settled in London. He married Letitia, daughter of Dr Andrew Greenfield, rector of Hillsborough (who assisted Bishop Percy in editing his "Reliques of Ancient Poetry"), and by her had a numerous family, of whom only survived two sons, George and Alexander Andrew."1
