Outwell is a fenland village on the Norfolk/Cambridgeshire border. It is 5 miles from the nearest town, which is Wisbech. The Village is on the A1101 Bury St. Edmunds to Long Sutton road. In 2001 census the population was 1,880. Up until 1990 Outwell parish was half in Norfolk and half in Cambridgeshire with the boundary falling along the old course of the River Nene. In 1935 the part of Outwell which was in Cambridgeshire was reduced in size to enlarge the nearby village of Emneth.
The surname Murfitt has been known in the area for a long time. There is now no trace of this particular Murfitt who was almost certainly a fruitgrower.
In 1925, an H Murfitt grew fruit at Gravel House Farm, in March, Cambs.
