Joseph married Sarah WILLIAMS "Juliana" in 1785.

She died before 1793 after having had a daughter who died young.

Tom Bellas, in Australia, notes: In 'Honourable Company', Margaret Rosa Bellasis reports that Joseph Harvey married Juliana Williams, who 'had some fortune' since she was the daughter of a retired Company officer. In the India Office Records the marriage of Joseph Harvey Bellas, ensign, in Calcutta on the 1st June 1785 was to Sarah Williams. Then the probate record for Sarah Bellas is for Joseph's first wife. The name Juliana was recorded by Augustus in the pedigree, and he worked for the Indian Civil Service, so the discrepancy may due to the use of two forenames and this entry has been adjusted accordingly.

182. Major-General John "General John" BELLASIS [scrapbook] (Joseph BELLAS , George BELLASIS , George BELLASIS , William BELLASIS , Bryan BELASYSE , William BELASYSE , Richard BELASYSE , Thomas BELASYSE , William BELASYSE , Robert BELASYSE , John BELASYSE , John BELASYSE , William BELASYSE , John BELASISE , John BELASISE , Robert DE BELASISE , Thomas DE BELASISE , Roger DE BELASISE , Rowland BELASISE , William BELASIS , Robert BELASIS , William DE BELASIS , Ralph DE BELASYSE , Rowland DE BELASYSE , John ) was born in 1743. He died in 1808.

Major-General John Bellasis was Commander of the East India Company forces in Bombay.  He died at the Council Table in Bombay.  He fought in numerous actions under Sir Arthur Wellesley.  After the battle of Cannonore, the reinstated Queen of Cannonore presented "General John" with a wicker chair. With the chair was given an emerald ring.  The chair still exists and is painted black, but under the chipped paint can be seen white paint and, under that, guilt.  It is thought to have been a guilded throne and it was brought to General John after he left a board meeting with convulsions and he died in the chair.  The Chairman of the East India Company from 1778 was Sir George Wombwell, whose wife was Anne, née Belasyse, of Newburgh Priory (see www.newburghpriory.co.uk).  Anne was potentially 5th cousin twice removed to General John and they died in the same year.

He financed the education of his nephew, Edward, who became Serjeant-at-Law.  He financed and organised the publication of the History and Antiquities of Dorset, a three-volumed master-piece compiled by his Father-in-Law and saved from fire by his wife.  The work is said to be the finest county record of all the English counties.

He financed the registering of the Bellasis family pedigree with the Royal College of Arms on 17th June 1792; it cost about £92 in those days.  The existence of one patent is known and there is one official copy.  The arms were granted to "George Bellasis and John Bellasis....and their descendants and those of their said late father Joseph Bellas'"; and vary from the ancient arms in respect of the blue chevron as opposed to red because of the difficulty in proving the link (see the Scrapbook item of George Bellasis d.1704).
