Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

Isandlwana Survivor - Andrew Muirhead Empty
PostSubject: Isandlwana Survivor - Andrew Muirhead   Isandlwana Survivor - Andrew Muirhead EmptyTue Jul 23, 2019 9:13 pm

Hello all,

Just wondered if anyone has any information on Isandlwana survivor Trooper Andrew Muirhead Natal Carbineers (other than the account of his escape) - I've found a profile on a genealogy site with the following information and think it could be the same person:

Andrew Muirhead Jr 1854-1892
Born 14 May 1854 Fort Napier, Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa
Son of Andrew Muirhead Sr (45th Regiment) & Margaret Craig
Brother of John Muirhead, Edmund Muirhead, Robert Craig Muirhead & Charlotte Mary Muirhead
Husband of Hester Martha Alette (van Rooyen) Muirhead (married 20 May 1884 in Kranskop)
Father of Andrew John Muirhead
Died 6 July 1892 in Nqutu, Zululand
Occupation: Clerk & interpreter, farmer


I'm hoping to find some info which links Trooper Muirhead to the individual above, the only extra information given in Terry Sole's book For God, Queen & Colony is that he was a chemist from Pietermaritzburg.

As ever, any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Tim

When Offy Shepstone left the Natal Carbineers to take command of  Shepstone’s Native Horse, He took three other Natal Carbineers to be Lieutenants; his brother Walter Shepstone, Muirhead and Bissett. Muirhead was the Quartermaster
