John Murray (1808-1892) was a publisher in the British firm of John Murray.

Murray attended Charterhouse School and later Edinburgh University, receiving an MA in 1827. He was a part of the publishing firm when Sir Walter Scott acknowledged the authorship of the Waverley novels. After traveling throughout Europe, John Murray wrote guide books on Holland, France, South Germany, and Switzerland.

The Mrs. Tindal, to whom the letter was addressed, may have been Mrs. Acton Tindal (Henrietta Euphemia Harrison), a noted British poet.
