     James Greathead was born on 2 October 1832 in Reading, Berkshire, England.2 He was the son of Thomas Greathead and Martha Milner. He was baptised on 21 November 1832 in St Mary, Reading, Berkshire, England.1,2,3 In the census of 6 June 1841 in Wesley Street, Dewsbury, Yorkshire, England, he was listed as the son of Thomas Greathead.4 James cames to Natal on the SS Herald and went to visit his brother Samuel but on 12 September 1855 he sailed from the Cape back to England.5 He married Sarah Field, daughter of Peter Wilson Field and Susannah Rothery, on 26 November 1856 in St Judes, Midmay Grove, Islington, London, England, after a licence was issued. The ceremony was witnessed by Charles Field and Peter W Field. James gave his occupation as a clerk and lived at 28 Claremont Street, while Sarah gave her address as De Beauvoir Road.2,6,5,7 James, Sarah and baby Wilson were nominated for assisted passage under the new government assisted emigrated scheme, probably planning to sail with Thomas and Martha. The family were living at the time in Holborn, but I believe they must have gone out between after March 1859 when baby Milner was born and before October 1860 when Wilson appears to have been baptised in South Africa.5 His wife Sarah died on 3 November 1905 in Swellendam, Cape Province, South Africa, aged 74.2 He died on 21 October 1916 in The bee-hive, Swellendam, Cape Province, South Africa, aged 84 which was the home of his daughter Edith Beatrice.2 James was buried in Main Cemetery, Drostdy Street, Swellendam, Cape Province, South Africa.8
