History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Murray was first settled circa 1809. The Town of Murray was established in 1808 before the formation of Orleans County, while still part of Genesee County. Later, Murray was reduced by the creation of new towns: Sweden (1813, now in Monroe County), Clarkson, (1819, now in Monroe County) and Kendall (1837).

In 1850, the community of Holley incorporated, setting itself off from the town.
