     Leonard Shattock was born on 22 April 1883 in Wandsworth, London, England.3,4 He married Nancy Greathead, daughter of James Henry Greathead and Blanche Emily Caldecott Coryndon, on 12 January 1914 in Swaziland, South Africa.1,2,3 Leonard and Nancy, were on their way to make a new life in South Africa with their son Paul, aged four, and Jim, a baby. The Galway Castle was torpedoed after the cease fire. The Captain panicked though the ship only sank when it was taken in tow some days later. Most lifeboats were cut from the davits but one was properly launched with the correct complement of sailors, passengers and stores - it was never seen again. Paul had been entrusted to some fellow passenger on that lifeboat, while Nancy and Leonard endeavoured to save Jim whose baby clothes acted as a parachute when his father dropped him over the side of the ship to his mother who had been given a place in one of the lifeboats. Paul's name was on the memorial to those lost in the Galway Castle in Sinoia, Rhodesia.5 His wife Nancy died on 1952 in Eton, Windsor, Berkshire, England.6

Helen Douglas Huntly1,2,3

#2781, b. about 1881, d. 1931
Last Edited=1 Jan 2016
Helen Douglas Greathead née Huntly
     Helen Douglas Huntly was born about 1881 in Grahamstown, Cape Town, South Africa, Helen was a descendant of Lieutenant Hugh Huntly who was born in Dublin and arrived in Table Bay on 14 March 1815. Little has been found of her early life until she married Horace Greathead.1,2,3 She was the daughter of Hugh Campbell Huntly and Maria Louisa Pohl. She married James Henry Horatio Greathead, son of Herbert Harding Greathead and Frances Eliza Halse, on 16 June 1906 in Cape Province, South Africa.2,3 In 1913 Helen had a very bad attack of pneumonia and Horace was advised to go to a warmer climate and so in 1914 the family moved to Southern Rhodesia where Horace went onto a mine outside Bindura as Cyanide Manager where he worked until 1916. After leaving the mine Horace went into partnership in the purchase of a farm, with a Mr Hagelthorne, a Bank Manager. Horace was to manage the farm called Hereford. There were no buildings on the farm so while Horace was building the brick house Helen together with Phyllis, Eileen and baby Guy stayed with Helen's brother Norman on his farm near Bindura. Her elder son stayed with Horace on the farm in a couple of temporary huts until in 1917 when the brick house was ready and all the family moved onto "Hereford".3 While Horace worked on the mine schooling for his children was not easy. They had a Governess Myrtle Holmes who later married their Mother's brother Norman.

When the family moved to Hereford there was first Mrs Gough and later Miss Austen for a short time, after that Phyllis and Eileen went to High School in Salisbury and Ken during 1922-23 attended Prince Edwards School. As the farm was five miles from the railway siding where they caught the train to Salisbury, Horace took the girls in the pony trap and Ken rode his horse "Baron"

After the flax crash Ken went to Mrs Norval's private school as a weekly boarder and the girls stayed at the High School where they finnished their education. Ken stayed at Mrs Norvals for a year and then went to Matopa's Agricultural College near Bullewayo in 1924, leaving in June 1925 when he was fourteen years old much against his mother's wishes.3 Her husband James died on 20 September 1924 in South Africa aged 47 Horace’s tragic, untimely death made life very difficult for the family, especially Helen and young Ken who left school early as a 14 year old in order to work to ease the family’s financial burden.1,2,3 Following Horace’s tragic, early death Helen had a very difficult time. Her health was not good, but her will to carry on was her strength. She had no formal training and with four of her five children to educate, aged 5, 8, 14, 16 and 18 years old. Left with Horace’s insurance, she gathered her resources and built a boarding house in Bindura that she ran with the help of her eldest, Phyllis, for young men working on the mines. The next two children soon left school to work, Eileen in the Bindura Post Office and Ken in a cotton ginnery and then on a farm and then in 1929-30 on a gold mine but living at home. At this time Eileen living at home, worked at the Post Office and with the help of a nurse looked after her Mother.3 With Phyllis and Tim moving to Kenya, Ken already there. Helen sold up the boarding house and in late 1930 she, Eileen and the boys Guy and Godfrey left for Kenya.3 She died in 1931 in Nairobi, Kenya, after only arriving in Kenya for three weeks to be with her sister Ethyl.1,2,3
