George Henry Glasse (1761-1809) was the son of Dr. Samuel Glasse (1734-1812), rector of St. Mary's in Hanwell, Middlesex, near London. George attended Christ Church, Oxford, receiving his BA in 1779 and his MA in 1782. He succeeded his father as rector of Hanwell in 1785, and published numerous sermons and translations. He also served as the domestic chaplain to Adolphus Frederick, Duke of Cambridge (1774-1850).

In November of 1783, he married his cousin Anne Fletcher (d. 1802), and they had at least seven children, including Anna Glasse (1784-1802); Caroline Glasse Hume (b. ca. 1786); George Henry Glasse (b. 1789), who later assumed the name George Henry Elliot; Arthur Henry Glasse (1798-1840); Emma Margaret Glasse Popwell-Brigstock; Ellen Clara Glasse Johnson; and Mary Louisa Glasse Griffith. Late in 1803, he was engaged to Elizabeth de Blaquiere, who broke off the engagement. In 1804, he pursued Lady Anastasia Jessey Gascoigne of St. Petersburg, Russia, who was then separated from her industrialist husband Charles Gascoigne.

In October of 1805, he married Harriet Wheeler (d. 1846), by whom he had one more child, Frederick Henry Hastings Glasse (b. 1806). Struggling with heavy debt, he committed suicide in 1809. Harriet remarried in 1811 to Sir James John Gordon Bremer (1786-1850).
