  • Notes 
    • Mary and Peter were married in the Border country. They came to Harvey Settlement in 1851 with her sister, Margaret. The International Genealogical Index shows many Moffitt families in Northumberland in the 1800's. John was a common Moffitt name, so it is not surprising that these two sisters were of another family. The two families had to be related at some earlier time; they may even have been close relatives or known each other, since these settlers lived close to each other in the Borders. Those who came to Harvey over the period 1837-1851 all came from country places within 20 or 30 miles of each other, and within 15 miles of Berwick Upon-Tweed. Mary and Peter left the side of the River Tweed and settled in Tweedside, no doubt named for that reason. They had eight children.
