Humble was born to a Yorkshire farming family. He first attended a Wesleyan School in Richmond and then the Wesleyan Normal Institute in London where he briefly taught after completing his education there. Humber was then given the position of headmaster at the Wesleyan School in Marylebone.
Humble sailed on 25 August 1861 for Australia where he had been offered another position as headmaster. After nearly a year he arrived at Fremantle where he led the unpretentious school in Greenough, on the coast of Western Australia. His next headship was much further south on the coast for the Fremantle Boys School. Humble died in Fremantle on 23 October 1930.
Sy Scholfield quotes "An Honoured Veteran" by Noah Little in The West Australian (Perth, WA), 18 December 1929, p. 14: "Mr. George Bland Humble stands in the foremost file of bowling votaries in this State for the family Bible records he was born 'at ten minutes past two on the morning of December 22, 1839.'"
