Lieutenant William McMaster Murdoch, is my 5th cousin.

Wills cousin Captain James Cumming who died at Kippford in 1948 said that William had a great name among sailors at being the “best and smartness sailor afloat.” James who went to sea in sail in 1892 said that when he was an AB -Able Bodied Seaman, just after 1902 he was walking down Lime Street, Liverpool, when he met a crowd of White Star Officers in their best uniforms and him in his working gear. Will shouted to him “come and have a drink Jimmy” and there he was sitting in the lounge of the Adelphi Hotel with all the swells of society and him just a common AB.

Great website, thank you.
