He was a Member (MP) of the Parliament of Great Britain for Aylesbury 1734 to 1741.[1] He was an alderman of London in 1730 and Sheriff in 1737.[2]

Although himself born in London, George Champion descended from the Champion family of Baulking, near Uffington, Berkshire. He was baptised on 29 November 1713 at St Bride's, Fleet Street, London,[3] the son of George Champion (b 1687) of Uffington, Berkshire and Catherine Bould. He was the cousin of Alexander Champion (Senior).

He married Susanna (died 3 September 1738), daughter of Sir Jonathan Andrews of Kempton Park, Middlesex [1] and by her had at least three daughters.
