As a ticket-of-leave man, he met Elizabeth Farrell, a free settler, at Launceston in early 1835 and, later that year, Elizabeth gave birth to a daughter, Betsy.
On 27 June 1838, George and Elizabeth married at Launceston.  The marriage produced four more chilodren: Henry 1839, Sarah, 1840 and twins George and Maria (1842).
At about the time of his marriage, he seems to have adopted ‘BRADMORE’ as the spelling of his surname.   
About 1848, he became lessee of a small farm on the large ‘Adelphi’ estate at Whitemore, near Westbury, Tasmania, and remained there until his death, at 79, in 1882.
