Adam Murray

Murray, Adam, London, Ontario, County Treasurer of Middlesex, was born on August 1st, 1808, at Liddesdale, Roxburghshire, Scotland, and is a son of Charles and Elizabeth (Armstrong) Murray, both of the same place. He received his elementary educational instruction at the place of his birth, but emigrating to the colonies at an early age, He completed his studies at the Grammar schools of St. John, N. B. , and Fredericton, the capital of the same province. Mr. Murray shortly afterwards moved westward, and he was appointed Inspector of schools for the township of Westminster, County of Middlesex. In 1857, he was appointed county treasurer, and has filled that office since, to the thorough satisfaction of the public. Mr. Murray gives his allegiance to Presbyterianism, and joined the first Presbyterin church, in the City of London, and has continued his connection with it since. In politics he has always been a Reformer, and he gave his zealous support to Robert Baldwin, and to the party which was known as the Baldwin reformers, continuing his allegiance to the same party under its changed appellation. But Mr Murray has not hungered after political distinction; his life, however, has been a useful, industrious and honourable one, and his character stands the highest for integrity. He married, on the 19th of October, 1835, Jane Beattie, of Dumfriesshire, Scotland. Charles Murray, his son, was at one time manager of the Federal Bank, London, and is now manager of the London Loan Company.
