Also present was his nephew John Greathead, aged 10, a scholar who was born in South Hetton. He also had a lodger called George Britton or Britten, aged 48, from Leyburn, Yorkshire who worked as a labourer.1,11,12 I believe Robert emigrated to Australia and then sent for his nephews Robert and George.13 He married Sarah Ann Bright, daughter of John Bright and Patience Ashbury Fuller, on 2 December 1857 in St Paul's, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, This was Robert's second marriage.14,15,13,16,17,18 Robert and his son George used to make a tonic called Greatheads mixture that was sold in Australia as a cure for fevers of all kinds. George was a herbalist. They applied for the patent in 1875, Robert gave his address as 33 Chetwynd St Hotham, Victoria.19,20 In the The Macon Telegraph 20 October 1881 there was an article entitled: A Cure for Diptheria. It read - The following is said to be an excellent remiedy for diptheria. The disease is declared by Mr Greathead, of Australia, to be hydrated growth, and that the germs of it, floating about in certain impure atmosphere, are inhaled by human beings: For a grown person four drops of sulphurous acid diluted in three quarters of a tunmbler of water, with a small dose for children. The effect of this treatment is instantaneous, the acid at once destroying the parasites and the ptients coughing up the obstruction. Sufferers have recovered in a few minutes by adopting the Greathead treatment. Children almost previously in a dying state, were declared to be playing about within ten minutes, and at a computation some forty or fifty of these sudden recoveries have been placed on record, with full and satisfactory results of performance of this wonderful, infallible and quick cure for diptheria. When necessity demands you to arrest this dangerous disease, don't neglect to test the virtue of the Greathead treatment.21 His wife Sarah died on 1883 in East Hotham, Victoria, Australia.22,14,5,23 Robert died on 23 December 1889 in Hotham, Victoria, Australia, aged 70.14,5,24,25 The will of Robert was proved Robert was described as late of 51 Chetwynd Street, North Melbourne, Victoria. His daughter Esther applied for Administration on the will written on 16 November 1887 on 7 June 1898. She did not apply before as the will was in the hands of her sister Margaret. Robert left his writing desk to his daughter Sarah Forrest, all his other household goods to his daughter Margaret and his watch to his grandaughter Ada, daughter of his son Robert. He wrote that he would have left something to his two sons Robert and John, but as they have treated me so very badly they cannot expect that I could leave them anything.26

Margaret Hanley1

Last Edited=23 Dec 2017
     Margaret Hanley was born about 1814 in Ireland The 1851 census states Margaret was born in Ireland, later census returns state she came from Liverpool, and even later Richmond, Yorkshire.2,3 She married William Greathead, son of John Greathead and Jane Fishburn, on 11 September 1832 in Houghton le Spring, Durham, England.4 On 7 March 1840 when their 4th daughter was baptised at St Helen in Kelloe Margaret was given the surname of Simpson. Their address was Hole House and William was a hind.5 In the census of 6 June 1841 in Outlying Farms & Dwellings, Hole House, (Straggler), Kelloe, Easington, Durham, England, she was listed as the wife of William Greathead.6,7 In the census of 30 March 1851 at Bank Top, Hipswell, Yorkshire, England, she was listed as the wife of William Greathead Margaret was an agricultural labourer.8 In the census of 7 April 1861 in Trimdon Colliery, Sedgefield, Durham, England, she was listed as the wife of William Greathead.9,10 In the census of 2 April 1871 in Trimdon Colliery, Trimdon, Darlington, Durham, England, she was listed as the wife of William Greathead.11 Her husband William died on 14 December 1873 in Trimdon Colliery, Sedgefield, Durham, England, from jaundice that he suffered from for four months and bronchitis for two months. His death was registered by Sarah Lumsden of Haxwell Lanes who signed with her mark, was this his daughter? or a nurse?. He was listed as a farm labourer, did she not know he was a cordwainer by trade or maybe he changed it in later life.12 In the census of 3 April 1881 in Back Street, Haswell, Durham, England, she was listed as the sister of George Greathead George was a widower and is listed as deaf. His sister Margaret who is a widow and I think is really his sister in law is in the household. Also with them is a young girl Sarah J Garry from Trimdon aged 16 who I believe is Margaret's grandaughter.13 Margaret died in 1886 in Easington, Durham, England, The GRO index list her as 65 years old, but the age is only as good as the informant's knowledge.14
