you are talking about George Brindley, son of William of Willenhall, Staffs. He married in 1614 at st. Peter's, Wolverhampton, then covering Willenhall; and his partner, Richard Foley, married his sister Alice. The latter's grandson was made Lord and then Baron Foley of Kidderminster. George was cousin to Thomas Brinley, Auditor general to the King, some of whose sons and daughters emigrated to the new american colonies c.1652 onwards.
George was descended from Stephen Brundeley of Wildgoose farm near Leek, staffordshire. This makes him related to canal engineer, James Brindley (1716 - 1772), whose own nephews stayed often with George Washington.
