Prior to the Revolution, George Folliot, a general merchant in New York City, held extensive land interests in northern New Jersey and Dutchess County, New York. Folliot appears to have derived a substantial income from tenants in both locations, and may have supplemented this income by managing, or assisting in managing, parts of the estates of others. Little else is known about Folliot, other than that he was a slave holder and sided with the Loyalist cause during the Revolution.
