Murray of Stanhope

13th Baronet?

Hamilton Flemyng Campbell Gyll-Murray

Hamilton Flemyng Campbell GYLL-MURRAY was born on 11 August 1836 and baptized on 07 September 1836 in the Saint Marylebone Parish, in London.  He was a son of Hamilton GYLL and Frances Caroline MURRAY.

Hamilton GYLL grew up at Shenley Lodge in Hertfordshire and was only eight (8) when his father died.  Hamilton's mother remarried three (3) years later (1847) and by 1851, Hamilton was living with his mother's Aunt, Caroline THOMPSON on Royal Avenue Terrace in the Chelsea District of London.

On 04 January 1861, Hamilton GYLL married Louisa Ida JESSE in Southampton.  Hamilton was living at the Pier Hotel in Southampton at this time.  Louisa, who was born about 1843 in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, was a daughter of William Henry JESSE, a Tailor, and his wife Katherine LOCKE.

In 1871, Hamilton and Louisa GYLL and family were living in Albert Villas on Granada Road in Portsmouth.  Hamilton was employed there as a Manager of a local club.

Late in 1878, after the death of his cousin Murray Howell MURRAY, Hamilton GYLL assumed the MURRAY surname and applied for the Baronetcy of Stanhope.  It is not known if Hamilton's claim was ever established but it is known that Hamilton listed his occupation as a Scottish Baronet in the 1881 Census.  At that time Hamilton and Louisa GYLL-MURRAY and family were living at High Park on Preston Road in Ryde on the Isle of Wight.

In 1891, Hamilton and family were living back on the mainland at 43 Granada Road in the Southsea District of Porstmouth, Hampshire.

By 1901, Hamilton GYLL-MURRAY and family had moved several miles East and were living at 27 Stanford Road, in Brighton, Sussex.  At this time Hamilton GYLL-MURRAY was listed as being paralysed.  Hamilton GYLL-MURRAY died on 8 February 1902 at Havelock House in Portslade-By-Sea in the Steyning District of Sussex County.  Louisa Ida Jesse GYLL-MURRAY died on 21 March 1928 at 80 Walsingham Road, Hove in the Steyning District of East Sussex.
