George Nares (1857-?)

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.
