James Murray was born circa 1819 at Hawkesbury, New South Wales.2 He was the son of Kennedy Murray and Ann Parker.1

Kennedy Four children of Kennedy and Ann were admitted to an Cabramatta Boys Orphanage:
Resolved that the four children of Murray aged from 3 to 10 years whose mother died insane at Castle Hill, and whose father is stated to be now insane be admitted into the school

However, it is likely that Ann wasn't dead and that there is no record that Kennedy was ever admitted to the asylum.3,4

James died on 15 September 1878 at Parramatta, New South Wales.1
