    Hoardweel Farm, Berwickshire, Scotland
    Hoardweel Farm, Berwickshire, Scotland
    The sign at the entrance to Hoardweel Farm on the A6112 road.
    Agnes Moffat (513, 1819) and Margaret Moffat (514, born 1821) were born here to George Moffat (32) and Isabella Clark (33), so it is presumed that George and Isabella and their first son Alexander (born 1818 at Coppermine) lived here during this time. Their 4th child Elisabeth was born at Blakerstone in 1825.
    Roger Moffat and Lisa Christensen visited this farm 22 June 2000.

    George Moffat and Isabel Clark presumably lived here from about 1819 to 1825 when two of their children (Agnes, born 1819) and Margaret (born 1821) were born here.

    Tower Farm was a place of residence for several members of the Glass family - descendants of Agnes Moffat (born 1819). Agnes died at Tower Farm, and her son Richard lived there for some time, as did a grand-daughter of Agnes - Mary J Turner.
