Can anyone help explain the alias surnames of my ancestor Nathaniel SQUANCE alias GEORGE, which are shown in the notes of the parish records on the christening of his daughters Sarah and Elizabeth GEORGE?

Nathaniel GEORGE(1802-1884 Leigh upon Mendip) was an agricultural labourer and married Mary Ann WOOLLEY 25 Nov 1827.
