Sir James Murray's house
Sir James Murray's house
Sunnyside, 78 Banbury Road, is the house to which Sir James Murray moved in 1885 when he was already deep into his life's work: the compilation of the Oxford English Dictionary based upon words and quotations sent in by countless contributors. In his Scriptorium in the garden he collated millions of paper slips in a system of pigeon holes, helped by assistants and his own family.
He lived in the house until he died in 1915, laden with honours.
