  • Notes 
    • There are no children for this couple listed in the Old Parish Registers at http://ScotlandsPeople.gov.uk.

      It’s “possible” that this couple are the parents of George Moffat.

      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.

      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 daughter - 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 from what is known about Isabella Clark’s family, 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.
