  • Notes 
    • Arthur John Moffatt was born in Hexham-on-Tyne, Northumberland, on January 1, 1876. His family had originally come from the town of Moffatt in the lowlands of Scotland, and the family motto was "We hope for better things". He was the youngest of 8 children of John Stevenson Moffatt and worked in the family business, Moffatt Brothers Ironmongers, which had stores in Gateshead, Newcastle, and Hexham. He was educated at Barnard Castle School in Durham, and then entered the family business. However when his father died the business was left to the two oldest sons and the younger sons sought other employment.

      My grandfather and his brother James Moffatt, emigrated to Canada in 1912. My grandfather was City Clerk of Fernie, B.C. from 1914 to 1931. In 1932 he moved his family to Richmond, British Columbia, where he accepted the position of Municipal Clerk, a position he held until his retirement in 1946. He died in Vancouver General Hospital at the age of 92, on August 27, 1968. [1]
