Biography/Admin. HistoryAndrew Hamilton Murray (1877-1965) was born in St. John's, son of Jean (Ritchie) and James Murray. In 1908 Murray began the A.H. Murray & Company. In 1910 Murray entered the salt fish sector, eventually acquiring all the waterfront property between Beck's Cove and Bishop's Cove and building an extensive fishery business. In the early 1900's Murray and his brother began supplying engines. During the years of World War II the company established a salt fish plant in St. Anthony to process the Labrador catch. Murray died in 1965.
