The Murrells of Wivenhoe – a family of Master Mariners
From the mid-1700s into the 1900s
Written and researched by John Murrell
Researching my family history has given me interesting insight into my forebears, their story and place in social history.
Whilst members of the Murrell(s) family can be found in the vicinity of Wivenhoe much earlier, I can trace a direct lineage from William Murrells (1730 – 1793), the spelling of the name changed with the dropping
of the ‘s’ at the end during 1830’s and Frederick Murrell.
Their story can be found in the attaching pdf files below.
I have put the full extended family on my Ancestry.co.uk page under Murrell Family Tree. To find it, simply click on this link and go to:
