The London Missionary Society began its activities in Guyana shortly after the end of the slave trade. This was in response to a request from Hermanus Post, the owner of Plantation Le Ressouvenir who believed that if slaves were influenced by religious teachings, they would be more docile and obedient. A chapel was erected on the plantation and in 1808 the Society sent John Wray to run the mission there until 1813 when he was transferred to the Society's Mission in Hanover, Berbice. Four years later, Rev. John Smith was sent to fill the vacancy at Le Ressouvenir in Demerara. The Missionary Society faced stiff opposition from the governing authorities, and Governor Murray told Smith that if he ever taught any slave to read he would be deported from the colony. Murray insisted that the Society's task was to educate slaves but only to make them contented. This was also the view of most plantation owners. They also argued that slaves should not be taught religion on the grounds that Christianity and slavery were not compatible. As early as 1808, the Royal Gazette, a publication which carried the views of the colonial administration in Guyana, had written: "It is dangerous to make slaves Christians, without giving them their liberty."

(Note: NSW BDM website shows incorrect marriage details for James Gobin and Mary Ann Murray's marriage, but I have the correct certificate). Jane (known as Bland) married Alexander Fraser in 1888, and their daughter Olive is my grandmother, thus Mary Ann is my gt gt grandmother..

William Daniel Murray

(1852 - )
     William Daniel Murray was born in 1852. He married in 1877 from Gulistan in Rathmines. His marriage licence shows Rev William Daniel Murray as his father. Sarah Holt's family tree shows him as a son married to Bella but with no more details.www.sarahkholt.com/genealogy/getperson.php?personID=I0363.

William D Murray (2) married Arabella Jane Corvan, daughter of Rev William Walsh Corvan, Rector of Bannow Wexford and Jane Boyce. I have lots of information on their children and on the Corvan and Boyce families which I am putting up on a RootsEssential file at the moment. I am happy to share all of that and if you have any tips on the easiest way to do it I would receive them gratefully.

My father in law Norman Lancelot Murray is the grandson of William (2). William 2 has been a bit of a mystery. He was supposedly Scottish and he died in Manitoba in 1911 after supposedly abandoning his family and a career as chief brewer in Guinness in Dublin. The only problem is that Guinness has no record of him as chief brewer or anything else for that matter and if we are right about the above connection it does not look like he was very Scottish either.. He was the son of Rev William Daniel Murray and Mary Sophy Halahan.

Mabel de Muscegros

(say 1225 - before 1284)
      The Gen-Medieval mailing list - Jimweber@nwintl.com (Jim Weber) wrote: CP VIII:70 states that Robert de Lisle m. 1stly before 1252, Mabel, widow of Hervey, baron of Stafford (d. 1241), and daughter of Sir Robert de Muscegros, of Charlton, by Hawise, daughter and coheir of Sir William Malet, of Curry Malet.
CP XII/1:171 has "Hervey de Stafford, son and heir. He m. Mabel, daughter of Richard de Mucegros. He dsp. before 7 Oct 1241, having left a will. Mabel survived him and was living in Apr. 1242. These don't seem to agree.
Volume XIV:589, corrects the Hervey de Stafford entry by inserting after Mucegros", of Charlton, by Hawise, daughter and coheir of Sir William Malet, of Curry Mallet."
XIV also inserts after 1242, "Mabel m. 2ndly, Robert de Lisle, who d. 1284." Vol XIV cited the Lisle entry in volume VIII:70 as the source for making the correction.
Superficially XIV didn't change the name from Mucegros to Muscegros, nor did it change Richard to Robert, nor did it change Mabel's death date of "living Apr 1242" to something indicating she was married again "before 1252".
But more importantly, I am not sure that the two entries are talking about the same Mabel. I believe that Richard de Muscegros was father of Robert de Muscegros, in which case XII/1:171 might be indicating that the Mabel who was wife of Hervey de Stafford was one generation earlier and an aunt of the Mabel who married Robert de Lisle.
Hervey de Stafford died in 1241, while Robert de Lisle was the son of a "bef. Feb 1239/40" marriage and was of age before 1264 when he obtained a charter. It doesn't make sense for a woman to marry as a 2nd husband, a man who might not have quite been born when her 1st husband died.
CP XII/1 was written well after VIII, and the editors might have been aware of what they were doing when they made the information different. XIV may be making a bad correction, in trying to make them agree.
Chris Phillips replied: The chronology certainly looks strange, and obviously something has gone wrong with the vol. 14 correction, whether it's the omission of a correction of Richard to Robert, or the identification of two different women.
There is some more information in the chart pedigree of Ferrers at vol. 5, around p. 334. This also identifies the same Mabel, daughter of Sir Robert de Muscegros (d. 1253/4) as the wife of both Hervey, Lord Stafford, and Sir Robert de Lisle. It also shows Sir Robert and Hawise as marrying between April 1220 and February 1220/1, and Sir John de Muscegros (who I presume is Sir Robert's son, though if so the line linking him is omitted) as b. 1232. I have this John as being married to Cecily Avenal.
As Hervey's father was granted his lands in 1217, and married in or before 1214, Hervey was presumably in his early to mid-20s when he died. So there's certainly a big age difference between him and Sir Robert de Lisle, but whether Hervey's wife would have belonged to the generation of Sir Robert de Muscegros seems a bit doubtful.
I'd be tempted to think there was some mistake about the date of marriage of Sir Robert de Lisle's parents, or that he was a child of an earlier marriage of his father, but as his stated mother was eventually her brother Warin's heir (and Robert called his son and heir Warin), presumably that's not the case. Mabel de Muscegros was born say 1225. She was possibly the elder sister & co-heir to John de Mucegros. In 1290 acknowledged a debt due to Warin. She was the daughter of Robert de Muscegros and Hawise Malet.
Mabel de Muscegros married Hervey Stafford Baron before 1241.
Mabel de Muscegros married Robert de Lisle as her second husband, before 1252. She was a widow at her marriage.
     Mabel died before 1284.
