Origins of surname

This surname either comes from the Gaelic for 'seaman', or is a derivation of merry

Early records

In 1747 George Murray, a soldier, was the first of several to marry local girls, when he and Elizabeth Le Gros were married at St Martin. There is no record of this couple, nor soldier James Murray and Philippine de la Cour, who married in St Lawrence in 1780, having children in Jersey.

Hugh, another soldier, married Anne Malzard in St Saviour in 1801 and their daughter Anne was baptised in St Helier two years later.
