Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Murray family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Murray, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

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.
