In the novel The Moving Finger, George was the boyfriend of Beatrice Baker who works at the garage. Beatrice gets an anonymous letter alleging "goings-on" at "Little Furze" while George gets a letter alleging that Beatrice is going out with "Fred Ledbetter's Tom". The couple quarreled over this leading Beatrice's mother Mrs Baker to approach Jerry Burton to ask him what to do about the letters.

George is not named in American editions of the novel. Beatrice does get a letter but Partridge doesn't name her boyfriend. The section containing Mrs Baker speaking to Jerry, where she names Goerge is abridged.
