He married Martha Hewitt, daughter of Robert Hewitt and Martha Bissell, on 21 July 1818 in St Marys, Handsworth, West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England, The ceremony was wtnessed by Benjamin Bissell and Hannah Hewitt.3,1,2 At age twenty four James became Head of the Greathead party from Worcestershire left Bristol on 10 January 1820 and arrived with his wife Martha (née Hewitt) aged twenty with their son James Henry Greathead age one month, came out on the Kennersley Castle, arriving on Table Bay on 26 March 1820. His brother William was a member of the party. They were refused permission to land because of a measles epidemic and told to be in quarantine for 42 days (epidemic claimed the lives of eighteen children). The ship was only allowed to continue its journey to Algoa bay (Now Port Elizabeth) where they were allowed to land. The settlers and their belongings were dumped on an inhospitable beach and accommodated in a tented camp from where they were eventually allocated land between Grahamstown and Port Alfred. He built a house in Bathurst where he resided till his death.5,6 On 31 March 1831 Martha petitioned to the Circuit Court holden in and for the District of Albury at Graham's Town before the Hon William Westbrooke Burton, one of the Judges of the Supreme Court of the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope to suggest her husband James was of insane mind. My guess is today he would perhaps be suffering from dementia!! The court adjudged James to be of an insane mind and incapabe of managing his Estate and Affairs and appointed Martha to be the Cuatrix of his person and jointly with William John Earle of Bathurst to be Curators of his Estate.7 He died in November 1831 in Grahamstown, Cape Town, South Africa, from Sunstroke.1,3,8 James was buried on 7 November 1831 in Grahamstown, Cape Town, South Africa, by Chaplain William Carlisle.9
