I am looking to make contact with any Murrays from Halifax, specifically anyone who is descended from a William Murray b. 1723 who was a grantee of Liverpool in 1764. Family tradition holds that he was a veteran of the siege of Louisburg in 1745, who left two daughters in Halifax when he removed to Liverpool in 1764 where he married Joanna Tupper. William is my 5th great-grandfather and I have been looking for any information concerning him for over ten years now. I would like to know who his parents were, if he had any siblings, etc.
I have seen, and been told that John Murray and Ann Bennett were his parents, but for a number of reasons, I just cannot make this William fit in.
I look forward to connecting with any distant cousins. And I thank you for any assistance.
