George Chaworth Musters was born in Naples on 13 February 1841, to John George Musters and Emily Hammond. He was orphaned at a young age, and was raised by his extended family. He joined the Royal Navy, and upon his retirement set sail to explore Patagonia, a region with which he had long been fascinated. He married a Bolivian woman and lived in Bolivia until 1876. In 1878, he was named as the next British Consul of Mozambique. On 25 January 1879, shortly before taking up the post, he died aged 38.
