CHARLES HENRY MURRAY, Deceased

Pursuant to the Statute 22nd and 23rd Vic., cap. 35

NOTICE is hereby given, that all persons having any claim against the estate of Charles Henry Murray, late of 85, Lower Addiscombe-road, Croydon, in the county of Surrey, Engineer (who died there on the 2nd December, 1891, and whose will was proved in the Principal Probate Registry, on the 30th December, 1891, by Alfred Norman Disney and Edmund Bowles, the executors thereinnamed), are hereby requested to send particulars in writing, of their claims to the undersigned, on or before the 14th July next; after which date the executors will distribute the assets of the deceased among the parties entitled thereto, having regard only to the claims of which they shall then have had notice. - Dated this 28th May, 1892.

Alfred Norman Disney was the Headmaster of Islington High School in 1891, aged 35 and born in Gloucester (1881 Private tutor, BA Camb., RKO King’s Coll., Lond.). The family though were in Blackheath Hill in 1841, 1861, 1871 and 1881 so must have been old friends and neighbours of the Murrays. Kate Disney, Alfred’s sister, was a witness at Margaret Hannah Murray’s wedding in 1879. Edmund Bowles (a commercial traveller in Drapery) appears to have been a neighbour in Croydon, living in Elgin Rd. (opposite Grant Rd.) in 1881.
