      Hi Colin,

      It may be entirely coincidental but there are a number of MURISONs in Cape Town. I have the records for St Peter's Cemetery Cape Town and they show the following

      Alexander MURISON, Captain dd 27 Jan 1893 aged 81 years
      Jane MURISON b CRUIKSHANK dd 13 Jan 1873 aged 61, wife of the above

      Alexander MURISON dd 23 July 1892 Born Peterhead, Scotland, in his 49th year
      Eleanor Charlotte MURISON b COLYER, his wife, dd 7 June 1916

      There are also other MURISONS - James and Robin.

      I may be wrong, but my recollection is that one or more of the Alexanders acted as ship's agent for my ggrandfather William STEPHEN, also from Peterhead.

      Any connection, do you think?

      Cape Town
