William was born in Little Bowden, Northamptonshire in 1856. He was the son of Samuel MUIRHEAD and Hannah (Codgbrook). I have information which shows that he lived in South Africa for many years, but died in London, England 1936.
Hi father Samuel was a tea dealer, born in Scotland and lodged with the Codgbrook family in Northampton in 1841, he married the daughter Hannah in 1844 and was still living Northampton in 1851. The couple had three children Mary (n~1846) Eliza Janet (n~1848) and William Codgbrook (n~ 1856)
Any further information on Samuel's origins (born~ 1817 Scotland) and more about his son's life in South Africa would be very interesting
