Footnotes

  • Sir George Pauncote-Bromley, 2nd Baronet, was the son of Sir George Smith, 1st Baronet (b. circa 1714-1769), and Mary Howe (1725-1761). He was given the name George Smith at birth but legally changed this to George Bromley on 7 February 1778 at the request of Robert Bromley esq. of Abberley, Worcestershire, the unmarried first cousin of Sir George's mother. This was presumably a condition of Sir George becoming Robert Bromley's heir.

    Sir George held the office of Sheriff of Gloucestershire in 1775. He married the Hon. Esther Curzon (1758-1839), daughter of Assheton Curzon, 1st Viscount Curzon of Penn and Esther Hanmer, on 8 January 1778 at Rugeley, Staffordshire. The couple had a son, Robert, who was born on 28 November 1778 and went on to have a successful career in the Royal Navy.
