Generation: 4

  1. 8.  George Moffat was born about 1792 in Berwickshire, Scotland (son of Mister Moffat and Miss [--?--]); died on 15 January 1844 in Harelawside Farm, Coldingham, Berwickshire, Scotland; was buried after 15 January 1844 in Preston Kirkyard, Preston, Berwickshire, Scotland.

    Other Events:

    • Joan's Notes: abt 1799, of, Blackerstone, Longformacus, Berwickshire, Scotland
    • Census: 6 June 1841, Renton Cottage, Coldingham, Berwickshire, Scotland

    Notes:

    Extensive searches have not revealed who George’s parents were. They were NOTJohn Moffat ID15502 and Jean Bog(ue) ID15503 as had been believed for many years.
    John Moffat and Jean Bog(ue) had a son George ID15501 who was born in 1791, but his death certificate revealed that he died Single in 1856 - 12 years after “my” George died in 1844.

    Following the Scottish Naming Pattern as applied to George Moffat and Isabella Clark’s children suggests that George’s parents were Alexander Moffat and Margaret:

    Alexander - 1st son - father’s father
    Agnes - 1st daughter - mother’s mother - Agnes - correct
    Margaret - 2nd daughter - father’s mother
    Isabella - 3rd daugther - mother - Isabella - correct
    Elisabeth - 4th daughter - mother’s eldest sister - ?
    William - 2nd son - mother’s father - William - correct
    George - 3rd son - father - George - correct
    Catherine - 5th daughter - ?

    So it seems George Moffat and Isabella Clark likely did name their children as per the naming pattern, which points to George’s parents being Alexander and Margaret.

    There is a marriage record for an Alexander Moffat and Margaret Lauder in 1784 in Legerwood, Berwickshire, Scotland which seems like a good fit, but no birth records for any children to this couple can be found.
