He was admitted to the bar in 1798 and began practicing law in Kennebunk in 1800. He married Abagail Chadbourne of Berwick, Maine in February of 1806.

Wallingford was one of a committee of five citizens who petitioned that Maine become a separate state from Massachusetts. This was accomplished in 1820. George Wallingford died in 1824 at the age of 49.
