Robert Edward Urquhart
by Annette S K Urquhart
My husband's grandfather, Robert Edward Urquhart (born in London, England, 27 Jul 1874-19 Aug 1920 died in Melbourne, Australia). He was in South Africa from Britain in the Cape Town Highlanders.
He met and married Mabel Margaret Henderson (born in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England, 8 Jan 1880-4 Sept 1964 died in Sydney, Australia) in Cape Town, SA. They immigrated to Australia in 1909 and settled in Melbourne, Victoria.
Robert E Urquhart's father was born in Cromarty, Scotland.
