John was the second child of his parents and the first son. His sister, born before him, had already died when he was born. The informant of John Murray's birth was 'Daniel Murray uncle' and he signed his name in a forward flowing style. No residence was noted for him. The certificate notes 'present' in the space for information about the informant, so it may be the birth took place in his home, he, Daniel, being an uncle of the father of the child, also Daniel Murray. The birth was registered before John Stiven at Glasgow on 11 September 1855. 2
