On June 26th 1865 George married Mary Ann Smith at All Saint’s Church in Cambridge. They had three children: Henry (b 1867), Laura Mary (b 1868) and Alfred (b 1870).

He died on January 24th at the family home “Dover Cottage” on East Road and was buried on the 29th aged 30. The announcement in the Cambridge Independent commented “Deservedly esteemed by all who knew him.”

After the death of her husband and newborn baby Mary Ann moved to 27 Regent Street where she ran a lodging house.
