Notes for Dr George Granville BRADLEY DD
George Granville Bradley (11 December 1821 – 13 March 1903) was an English divine, scholar, and schoolteacher.

Life

George Bradley's father, Charles Bradley, was vicar of Glasbury, Brecon.

He was educated at Rugby under Thomas Arnold, and at University College, Oxford, of which he became a Fellow in 1844. He was an assistant master at Rugby from 1846 to 1858, when he succeeded GEL Cotton as Headmaster at Marlborough College in Wiltshire.

In 1870, he was elected Master of his old college at Oxford, and in August 1881 he was made Dean of Westminster in succession to AP Stanley, whose pupil and intimate friend he had been, and whose biographer he became.

Works

Besides his Recollections of A. P. Stanley (1883) and Life of Dean Stanley (1892), he published Aids to writing Latin Prose Composition and Lectures on Job (1884) and Ecclesiastes (1885). He took part in the coronation of King Edward VII and resigned the deanery in 1902.

Family

Bradley had two sons and five daughters; of these children one son, Arthur Granville Bradley (1850–1943), and four daughters were writers, including Margaret Louisa Woods, Emily Tennyson Bradley (married Alexander Murray Smith), Lady Mabel Birchenough (the wife of Sir Henry Birchenough, public servant and business man) and Rose Marion Bradley.[1]
