Murray Genealogy & History

Murray has several origins. One is from the Moray Firth in Scotland. Another comes from the Irish Mac Muireadhaigh, meaning "son of a sea man". Yet another comes from the Gaelic Macgiolla Mhuire, meaning "son of the disciple of the Virgin Mary". The English origin is a version of Merry from the pre-seventh-century "myrige", meaning amiable. Murray family history tells us that Hugh Freskin, who was Flemish, obtained an estate in Morayshire in 1130 and took the name as his own. Murray genealogy gives us poet and essayist Aline Murray Kilmer, Washington Senator Patty Murray, and Golden Globe-winner comedian and actor Bill Murray.
