Dates of existence


George W. Bridges married, had a number of children and his family lived in Jamaica. When his wife deserted her family she took with her two children, the oldest son and daughter, and left behind three (four?) young daughters and an infant son. When George eventually followed his wife to England he found that he was barred from his family. He managed to regain his eldest daughter. Unfortunately all his daughters drowned upon his return to Jamaica. He eventually moved to Canada but due the climate's effect upon his young son he moved to a more temperate climate. He went to Palermo, Naples and eventually Malta. His youngest son William joined the British Navy and was always with his father when possible. George's wife died at age fifty-five at which point George found out a little about why she had deserted him in 1834.
