D-141 (500 acres, 17 Mar 1790)
Edward (Edmund) Murray. Origin: Other
Edward Murray received a grant of 500 acres on Long Island, in the Gordons area, on 17 March 1790. The grant was numbered D-141. On his grant and the Tatnall Map, his first name is Edward, but Edmond on the Lands and Surveys Map.
We believe that Edward was likely a relative of John Murray, 4th Earl of Dunmore, who was Governor of the Bahamas at the time the land grant was issued. We listed Edward Murray as “Other” because he was a relative of the man appointed as Governor by the British Crown and, as such, is neither a Loyalist nor an Old Inhabitant.
