George was the son of Thomas Vernor and Ann (Unknown) Vernor.

George was apprenticed to Eliezer Chater, a stationer on the 7th March 1786 which was recorded with the Stationers Livery Company.[1]

Eliezer was his brother-in-law, who had married his sister Rachel Vernor in the January of that year.

George died in 1796 and he was buried on the 4th April 1796 in Bunhill Fields, Islington, Middlesex, a nonconformist burial ground.[2]

His father's will

Thomas Vernor wrote and signed a will in 1793 in which he described himself as Thomas Vernor of Birchin Lane Bookseller. He seemed to have had concerns about his son's behaviour and character.

Will of Thomas Vernor proved 1793

He asked that the present business of a bookseller now carried on in Birchin Lane be carried on by and between my said executrix and executors (as trustees) and my partner Thomas Hood as in the same manner as hitherto be my said partner being allowed such share of the profits and that the profits be given to his wife and son George Glas Vernor with his wife receiving three fifths and his son receiving two fifths. However, his son only received his share if the conduct of my said son shall prove commendable and satisfactory to my executrix and executors (but not otherwise) and he shall prove diligent which is to be judged by my executrix and executors. After the death of his wife he bequeathed

that my said son George Glas Vernor have two fifths of my property and the remaining three fifths thereof together with all my household furniture then remaining I give and bequeath to the children of my late daughter Margaret Mann, late wife of Thomas Mann and to my other daughter Rachel Chater wife of my said son in law Eliezer Chater.

The will was proved at PCC on 29th October 1793 with the three executors being granted administration.[3]

His mother's will

His mother died in 1807 and neither George nor his possible offspring are mentioned, so it is unlikely he had any surviving children.[4]
