This website is dedicated to building the most comprehensive account of the Murray family, starting from the descendents of John Murray (1768 - ?) of Peterhead and, eventually, to probe deeper into the past.

The main goal is to preserve all the family history that we can for future generations of Murray's to view, so they can appreciate their heritage. There is already a huge volume of information available about the Murray Clan but very little on this little branch of it, so we (two of us Murray's) have taken on the task, and it is proving to be a very interesting one, with quite a bit of tragedy, a few triumphs and some twists and turns, so feel free to join us on our hunt and feel free to contribute anything you can by dropping us an email with your words, pictures, documents, comments or suggestions.

The first of our many Inuit cousins has been added to the tree and a process has been started to see two Murray brothers return to Nunavut, 100 years after the death of Alexander Murray Jnr and the end of Murray involvement in whaling in Hudson Bay and Hudson Strait.

Collective name - when discussing finding Inuk relatives

An Avalanche Of Inuit

'It's funny how stories told down generations from fathers and mothers echo through history with the distinct ring of truth.All my life, I was told the tales of my Great Great Grandfather spending the winter with the Inuit in Nunavut, but I never understood the true mystery that lay at the heart of the story' Descendent of Captain Alexander Murray Snr
