Hi Everyone. I am trying to find links to the Murison line in South Africa originating from Charles Albert Murison born in Scotland 1834. If anybody has any information it would really help me in my quest. Many Thanks

I'm turning 18 in 3 days and I'm very interested in my family history. It's good to know there are murisons around the world. I love all the information this website gives me and love to know more fun facts about our family. Thank you.

Just a note to Mardi Muirson from NZ: You are right about Murison being misspelled Muirson. Although he changed his name to Smith, my grandfather was born Murison - but on his marriage certificate it is spelled Muirson for both himself and his mother. It was only by stumbling on this site I guessed the spelling was really Murison.

Hi, from South Australia. Thank you for the website.

I have some some information for information for Christina Rees (Sep 7 2011).

My mother (Violet Mary Murison) saw the post from Christina and asked me to respond. My mother says "Stanley John Murison was my brother and he was born at Ethelton, South Australia. He married Melva Parr from Broken Hill. Stan died in 1956 and Melva then married James Norman Murison who was Stan's brother."

Apparently the second marriage could not be legally undertaken in SA at that time so James and Melva were married at Broken Hill as the marriage laws in that state were different.

Military Records for Stan show: Service Number - S43417, Place of enlistment - Alberton SA

It is thought that Stan was denied active service because of a heart condition and was assigned to a role as a guard at the Loveday Prisoner of War camp at Loveday in SA.

Stan worked as a boundary rider in outback Australia. At one stage he had a serious accident while repairing a fence and as a result required a blood transfusion which at the time was done person-to-person. Later in life he was diagnosed with Leukemia.

After he married Melva they moved to Broken Hill. In those days a person had to be a resident of Broken Hill before they could be employed in the town.

Greetings from Christchurch, NZ! There is a family legend ('Down Under';) that there was an illegitimate birth of a Muirson with the father none other than Robert the Bruce! The names 'Murison' and 'Muirson' are easily mis-spelt, and so the Aus. & NZ Muirsons also understand that we're all from the same clan. Garth's father said the names were interchangeable, and also 'Morrison'. It's said to have been derived from 'Son of Muir'. Can anyone enlarge on this please?
Jackie Hamnett (nee Murison) on October 1 2012, 21:58

Hi there,

Lee-Anne nee: Mur(r)ison. I too have some interesting information that I just found out today. My grandfather was Angus Arthur Murrison b. 1988 - 1927. Born in Aberdeen Scotland and died in Ontario, Canada. My dad was in-utero, just barely conceived when his dad, Arthur Angus Murrison, died of a heart attack. Contact me if you wish as I think I may have more interesting links I can share as to the Murison > South Africa correlation.
