George Bradley had a relationship with “Jane Tianey”, but they did not marry as George already had a wife and children in England. They had two children together, Lucy and John. On Lucy and John’s birth certificate their mother is listed as “a native girl called Jane Tianey”. Lucy Married American whaler William McBride and had 3 sons (one died in infancy) and ?4-5 daughter. John had no known children.
