Another blue plaque?[edit]

Murray resided in Hammers Lane, Mill Hill from 1870-1885.

I see there's already a blue plaque image for the article, but here's another one anyway. I haven't put it on the main article, because a) it's not a great image - and b) there is already one there. If someone else wants to add it, they can. GilbertoSilvaFan 18:08, 3 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Early history[edit]

"he left school at the age of fourteen because his parents were not able to afford to send him to local fee-paying schools. At the age of seventeen he became a teacher at Hawick Grammar School"

What happened between age 14 and 17 that he could become a teacher after having to leave school 3 years earlier? SpeakFree (talk)(contribs) 18:43, 11 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Conflict with article on OED[edit]

The Wikipedia article on the OED states that Furnivall retained Murray as editor and that they eventually approached the Oxford University Press about publishing it. This article says that the OUP interviewed Murray in 1878 and retained him as editor a year later. Two very different stories. They should be reconciled.Merry medievalist (talk) 12:33, 9 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
