A document exists (Par 8. Arundel 36/1) dated 17 May 1798 which is an order of the Justice of the Peace to pay Mary Murrell of Arundel four shillings and sixpence per week. Philip Murrell is described as a private serving in the Sussex Supplementary Regiment of Militia in his own right as a ballotted man for the parish of Arundel. The document lists his children as Philip aged 5 years and George aged 3 years. The sum of four shillings and sixpence is described as being the usual and ordinary price of three days labour in husbandry within the said county.

It is not known where these fit in (if they do).
There is a double gravestone in St Mary's (C of E) Slindon, W. Sussex which reads " In Loving Memory of Edmund MURRELL son of John and Ann MURRELL who departed this life the 6th of March 1875 Aged 88 years. In Loving Memory of Sarah relic of Edmund MURRELL and Daughter of Edward & Ann MORRIS who departed this life the 8th Nov. 1876 Aged 82 years. Many years respected inhabitants of this Parish." Edmund would have been born about 1787, Ann 1794. Could John be a brother of Philip MURRELL ?
