Just to let you al know that I too am researching the the family history.

My Murrant roots come from Farringdon.
Alton in Hampshire

When On a trip to St Helens in Jersey I came accross a Farmer by the family name and he told me that they were possibly Huognauts ? from france and that family went to England and Canada.

One meaning I got for the name Murrant in french was

The stranger who came to stay.

I believe it is also a french word for a form of cattle desease

When on a look around in a bric a brac sale I noticed a small statuette of a Liuet La- Murrant or something simmilar
