George Hall (c.1613-1668) was an English bishop.


His father was Joseph Hall. George Hall was born at Waltham Abbey, Essex, and studied at Exeter College, Oxford, where he became a Fellow. He became vicar of Menheniot and in 1641 archdeacon of Cornwall.[1][2]

Having been deprived of office under the Commonwealth, he became a lecturer at St Bartholomew-by-the-Exchange, and then vicar of St. Botolph's, Aldersgate.[3][4]

He was appointed to the seventh stall in St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle in 1660 and held this until 1662.[5]

He was appointed bishop of Chester in 1662. He was at the same time rector of Wigan, and archdeacon of Canterbury (from 1660). He died in an accident with a knife.[2][6]
