Murday was an accomplished painter of ship portraits and shipping scenes whose works were often signed and dated in the second half of the 19th century. Regrettably, there is little biographical information available on this artist.

His paintings are in the collections of the Greenwich National Maritime Museum, the Peabody-Essex Museum in Salem, MA, and the San Francisco National Maritime Museum. Some representative titles are: The Barque Bernard, The Schooner Ellen Gillman, and A Barque Among Icebergs off Cape Horn.
