From Immigration of the Irish Quakers:
Thomas Hiett, and wife Elizabeth, received 8 Mo. 27, 1733, dated 4 Mo. 10, 1733, from Moate Meeting, County West Meath, Ireland. Children born in Ireland as follows:

Thomas Hiett died 1751, and 7 Mo. 1, 1756 his widow Elizabeth Hiett, married Jeremiah Starr Jr., son of Jeremiah of London Grove.
From Abstracts of Wills Ireland:

My brother Elijah Boyes of Co. Armagh.
Residue of real and personal estate to wife Jane and son James to be equally divided. If son should die during minority, his half share to be divided between said wife Jane and children of said brother George.
Dated 25 Jan 1723-24
This Thomas is from the Dublin area and is a Quaker who has a father named George.
The Thomas who came to New Garden Mtg. in 1733 had a wife who was Elizabeth Miller. Her parents, James and Catherine Miller arrived in Philadelphia in 1729. Therefore, when you say that "Thomas Hiett states that some of the family went to Va. prior to 1759" he could have been talking about his wife's family.
Whether these Hietts were any relation to the Butleigh Hietts is unknown. Maybe John, the immigrant had a brother named George who went to Ireland and John named his son George after his brother George. In the Butleigh records, Richard Hiett, who is most likely John's father had 3 sons, Richard John, and George. Maybe when John Hiett left for America, George left for Ireland. I don't know if this George went to America in 1733 when Thomas did or not, but that would also explain "some of the family (George's brother, John) went to Va. prior to 1759".
I'm thinking that the George Hiett from Ireland is really John's brother, not his son.
I'm trying to find some records on Thomas and George that might verify this speculation.
