  • Notes 
    • One source submits he was born in Scotland. Another says place unknown; do not know if he was the first of his line in America; know he was in Newbury, MA in 1681 at age 18; and that there were other Moffatts in MA and ME to whom he has not been traced. Family moved to Killingly. CT in 1707. One source described him as an "original proprietor" of Killingly. He left no will, but deeded his property to his sons before his death. Births of first 6 children recorded in Newbury. Sources and additional info available from Nancy H. Buell (ID 81) Gary Morfitt found the surname given as "Muffet" in "A Sketch of History of Newbury, Newburyport, and West Newbury", by Joshua Coffin, 1845, p. 311. In the data compiled by George West Moffat in 1915, the name is spelled with only one "T". [1]
