Sir George Blackman Harnage Bart.

5th Jul 1767 - 19th Nov 1836


  1. Harnage was the son of John Lucie Blackman (1735-1797), West India merchant [q.v.] and Mary Harnage (1738-1836), who, after Blackman's death, married Admiral Sir Edmund Nagle (1757-1830). George Blackman assumed the surname Harnage on marrying his cousin, Mary, in 1821. He was also made a Baronet in the same year. She was the daughter of Lt. Col. Henry Harnage of London (1739-1826) and Honora Painter of Falmouth, Cornwall (dates not known).

    For reasons of clarity, Blackman is included in the surname here.
