Murray, George, D.D.
a bishop of the Church of England, the second son of lord George Murray, bishop of St. David's, was born in 1784. He was educated at Christ Church, Oxford, graduating B.A. in 1806. In 1814 he was consecrated bishop of Sodor and Man, and in 1827 was transferred to the diocese of Rochester, which was then but a small bishopric, comprising ninety-six benefices; but under the administration of bishop Murray the number was augmented to five hundred and sixty-four. He died February 16, 1860, being at the time the senior of the English bishops. He was a churchman of the old school, and held himself aloof from extremists. See Amer. Quar. Church Rev. 1860, page 184.
