She married Archibald Grosset of Logie circa 1707. (Note: Nisbet gave the spelling of Grosiert, but most other histories use Grosset or Grossett.) Archibald made a living as a merchant. Euphemia Muirhead became known by the name of Lady Logie; Logie was a large estate in the village of Crossford, near Dunfermline in Fife. Archibald was born circa 1675 in Lanarkshire They raised a family of three sons: Walter, born circa 1703; Alexander, born 23 July, 1705; and James, born March, 1707. Euphemia died in January, 1725.

The eldest son of Archibald and Euphemia, Walter Grosset of Logie, married Dianna De Vlieger on 17 July, 1729 at St. Martins In The Fields, London. Dianna was born circa 1710 in Holland, a daughter of a merchant and a government financier.

The rest of the children assumed only the Du Vernet surname. Abraham died on 23 October, 1806. Miriam died on 07 February, 1842 at Gloucester, England.
Henry Du Vernet Grossett-Muirhead joined the army and advanced to the rank of Colonel of the Royal Staff Corps. He succeeded to the ownership of the estate of Bredisholm, and became chief of the Muirhead clan, in 1842 following the death of his mother, Miriam. On 15 May, 1815 at Malta, Henry married Martha Maria Ygnacia Van Kempen, the daughter of Admiral Van Kempen, of the Dutch navy. Martha was born on 21 May, 1799 at Minorca, on the Balearic Islands, Spain. Henry and Martha gave birth to: Henry Robert, born 15 January, 1818; Gertrude, born 06 October, 1821; and George Grenville, born 1831. The first child was born at Malta; the second was born at London; and the third at Grenville, in Quebec, Canada. Henry died in 1843; his will was dated 08 March, 1844.
Henry Robert Du Vernet Grosset-Muirhead served as a Lieutenant in the Ceylon Rifle Regiment. He succeeded his father in 1843 to master of the Bredisholm estate and titles. Henry had been away in military servce with the Ceylon Rifle Regiment, and when he returned to Scotland in 1843, he was informed that he had inherited the estate and titles. At that time, he appended the name of Muirhead to his own. Henry married Lydia Eleanor Bayley, the daughter of Major Thomas Bayley, H.M.S., in September, 1839 at Galle, Ceylon. Lydia was born on 01 February, 1822. The couple gave birth to two daughters prior to Henry’s death on 18 January, 1849: Emily Eliza, born 1841; and Gertrude Margaret Zelie, born 1844. Lydia died at some time after 11 September, 1902.
The eldest daughter of Henry and Lydia, Emily Eliza Du Vernet Grosset-Muirhead, married Robert Dalrymple Steuart on 22 April, 1863 at Baillieston, in Lanarkshire. Robert was a Lieutenant in the 7th Hussars / Royal Horse Guards when they married; he was later promoted to Captain. He was born in the year 1837 at Alderston, in Stirlingshire. Emily died on 12 March, 1864, whereupon her husband inherited the estate and titles of the Muirhead estate of Bredisholm. Robert, by his marriage, assumed the surnames of Grosset and Muirhead to become Robert Dalrymple Steuart-Grosset-Muirhead, Esq. Of Bredisholm. One child, Emily Gertrude Lilias, was born to the couple in 1864. Robert died later that same year.

Gerald and Grace gave birth to: Miranda, born 1934 and died 1935; James Steuart, born 1935; John, born November, 1937; and Andrew. Gerald was the last resident and owner of the Bredisholm House, and therefore was considered the last ‘Laird’ of a Muirhead estate.
James Steuart Muirhead-Gould, son of Gerald and Grace Muirhead-Gould, married Sandra Marie Theken. James initially attended a boarding school run by Benedictine monks. After graduation, he joined a monastery, but soon decided that he wanted to do something else in his life. He emigrated from Scotland and attended McGill University at Montreal, Canada.

(Note: The Muirhead Clan Society database gives Mary as the first wife, but it would have been impossible for Arthur’s first wife to have given birth to a child in 1903 if his second wife died in 1899.)

The couple immigrated to Australia where, on 24 June, 1859 at East Melbourne, a daughter was born. She was given the name of Georgina Corbin Du Vernet. Apparently the couple divorced because in the year 1870 George married Emily Hopkins at Newcastle, in New South Wales, Australia. Ellen did not die until 1893, at White Hills, Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. In the meantime, George and his second wife, Emily, gave birth to: Elsie Beatrice, born 1871; Ida Mary, born 1873; and Harry Stirling, born 1876.

Edward Adrian Turner, son of William and Nellie Turner, married Dulcie Macumber.
Ivy Pearl Marie Turner, daughter of William and Georgina Turner, was married three times. According to the Muirhead Clan Society database, her first husband was James Reid. The couple gave birth to: Marjorie Georgina, Joyce Vivienne, Cecil Morris, Joan, and Patricia Jean. For whatever reason, the database lists these children with the mother’s surname of Turner. Perhaps Ivy and James Reid did not actually marry. Ivy’s second marriage was to Alan David Loudon. He was born in 1889 at Eaglehawk, in Victoria, Australia.. The couple gave birth to: Majorie Georgina, born 23 September, 1924 and died 24 April, 1935. Apart from the spelling (as given in the Muirhead Clan Society database) this child’s name was the same as that of the eldest born child of Ivy and her first husband, James Reid. Perhaps the first child had died prior to the birth of this one. Apparently, Ivy and Alan got divorced, because his deathdate is given as 1965, but Ivy’s third husband, John Johnston, died fourteen years earlier, on 14 April, 1951. John was born on 06 April, 1898 at St. Arnaud, in Victoria, Australia. Ivy and John gave birth to: Joyce Vivienne, and Patricia Jean. Why their two children were named the same as two of Ivy and James’ is anyone’s guess. Perhaps the Patricia Jean and Joyce Vivienne born to Ivy and James Reid had died prior to Ivy’s third marriage, and so the names were simply repeated because Ivy liked them.
Cecil Morris Turner, son of James and Ivy Reid, married Edna Elizabeth Nankivell. She was born on 14 April, 1924, a daughter of Albert Nankivell and Alice Roberts, at Sailors Gully, Bendigo, in Victoria, Australia.

3.1 The information for this section on the descendants of Euphemia Muirhead is derived primarily from A System Of Heraldry, by Alexander Nisbet. Additional information is derived from the Muirhead Clan Society database. It should be noted that the information given for the three marriages / families of Ivy Pearl Marie Turner is somewhat confusing and probably incorrect. The Clan Genealogist does not employ any checks on the information that is submitted to be input into the database; whatever is submitted is added into the database ‘as is’. The responsibility for accuracy lies with the submitter. Unfortunately, this results in the information more-than-likely being confusing and erroneous.
