Behind the scenes
Portrayed by Logan & Cole Weston (Series 4)
Oliver & Zac Barker (Series 5-6)
"He'll take over eventually, I assume, and when he does, I want to make sure he's the master of a modern going concern. He's also heir to his grandfather's title for reasons too complicated to bore you with. So it's very neat and tidy."
Mary Crawley about her son's future[src]

George Crawley nicknamed "Georgie" by his mother (b. between 9th and 30th September 1921) is the son and only child of Matthew Crawley and Mary Talbot. Due to his father's parentage (see below), George is also his mother's fourth cousin once removed and his maternal grandfather's third cousin twice removed.

As such, he became the closest patrimonial male relative to the Earl of Grantham and consequently the heir presumptive to his title and estate following Matthew's untimely death on the day of his son's birth. He currently lives at Downton Abbey with his maternal grandparents, his mother, stepfather, uncle, and eldest cousin. Upon his mother's second marriage, Henry Talbot became his stepfather. He is to have a younger half-sibling.

Notes Edit

  • George is the second grandchild of three in the Crawley family who has had one of their parents die shortly before or after their birth; the first being young Sybbie, whose mother (after whom she is named) had tragically died from eclampsia; the third being Marigold, who is the illegitimate child and only daughter of Lady Edith by her deceased lover, Michael Gregson, who was cruelly murdered in Munich, Germany, sometime before or after her birth in late 1922 or early January, 1923.
  • He has a close friendship with Thomas Barrow. George is one of the few people, aside from his cousin, Sybbie, and his late aunt, Sybil, whom Barrow genuinely likes and cares about.
