      in the 1882 "Orkney and Shetland" Telegraph it was mentioned that J Murrell donated 3 prizes to a Ploughing Match.
      Aberdeen Weekly Journal Saturday, October 6, 1883

      This newspaper mentioned that the fishing smack "Hero", of Grimsby left Stromness harbour Orkney on Thursday afternoon for a fishing cruise, but on passing through Hoy Sound, between Hoy Island and the mainland she was driven ashore by the tide which runs very rapidly in the Sound on the Cleat Skerry. The "Hero" came into Stromness on Saturday for shelter from the gale. At present she is making no water, and all things being well, she is expected to get off last night. The "Hero" belongs to Mr. Joseph Murrell of Grimsby (may not be this family)
