     Wilson Greathead was born on 29 June 1857 in 1 Dame Street, Islington, London, England.2 He was the son of James Greathead and Sarah Field. 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.3 He was baptised on 14 October 1860 in Sacred Heart Catholic Church, King Williams Town, Eastern Cape, South Africa, His sponsors were Michael and Margaret Durney and the priest Father O'Neil.4 He married Emily Monica Crowe, daughter of John Crowe and Anne Whittington, on 2 July 1883 in Holy Trinity, Debe Nek, King Williams Town, Eastern Cape, South Africa, Wilson was a surveyor.1,5 His wife Emily died on 24 September 1940 in Kloof Nek Rd, Cape Town, South Africa, aged 80.1,3 Wilson died on 26 May 1941 in Cape Town, South Africa, aged 83.3,1 Wilson was buried in Maitland Cemetery, Cape Town, South Africa, Wilson and Emily were buried under the same gravestone.6
