Cause of his death was Suicide.
Below is a direct quote taken from a letter written to Joseph Harris by James Wells Jr. in 1936.
"Uncle George was educated at Taunton College and Harrow; being expelled from the last mentioned for striking a Master."
"It seems that at an early age he too became interested in seduction and succeeded only too well with one of this father's serving maids, and for this reason he had intended to emigrate to Australia but while on a farewell visit to his sister Mary in Somerset he met and fell in love with a little black eyed vixen who prevailed upon him to marry her and remain in England. They were blessed with twelve Children, and she became a great scold. (she may have had just cause)"
"Dear Uncle George (so he was called) went mildly insane and turned to religion for comfort, and was wont to pray at most inconvenient times and places. He finally became so melancholy that they feared for his personal safety and employed two guards to watch over him; one day he skilfully evaded his attendants and placed the muzzle of a double barrelled shotgun in his mouth and dexterously pulled both triggers at once."
"He was tall, dark and handsome (6'6"), and is buried at Marston Mortain."
Apparently, George shot himself in the head and is buried in Marston.
George married Susan Ann Glyde.
