Andrew Murray was an early resident of Balwyn and a pioneer in journalism for the state of Victoria. He also served as a member and chairman of the Boroondara District Roads Board from 1864 to 1868.
Resigned in November 1868, triggering a by-election in December 1868. He published a letter in the local South Bourke Standard in the same issue, defending his record as chairman from what "attacks made...in ignorance by a political party".
