The second son of Rev. Robert
Nares, he was born in 1857 in Great Torrington, Devon. We
don't know much about him - in the 1881 census he is living with his
parents with "no occupation" but in 1891 he is described as a
private tutor. He doesn't seem to appear in 1901 though there is a
death record in Barnstaple in 1901 for a 44 year old George Nares that
could be him.
He married twice. Firstly, in May 1878, to Charlotte Sophia Robinson (1854-1878) from a Staffordshire farming family. On 3rd September the same year they were passengers on the Princess Alice, a pleasure boat on the River Thames, which sank following a collision with a collier. She was one of the hundreds who perished but George somehow survived. In December the next year he married again to Elizabeth Marianne Kempe (1857-1917). We don't know of any children.
