    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.

    Sign at one entrance to Blakerston Farm.
    Blakerston Farm is part of St Bathans Estates - a 6000 acre farm originally owned by the Turnbull Family. Now it is a "game farm" raising about 80,000 pheasants each year for release in Britain and Europe for game hunting.
    William (1825), Elisabeth (1829) and George (1831) Moffat were born here to George Moffat and Isabella Clark, presumably while George and/or Isabella worked on Blakerston Farm.

    This church on the St Bathans properties may have been the church attended by George Moffat and his family in the 1820s. The house visible in the distance was "the Laird's House".
