EXPLANATION. 

The number following the name in this work is the number of the gener- 
ation to which the person belongs, which can be traced by referring to the 
outline pages at the beginning — the first one of the name that we have any 
record of being taken as generation No. 1 . Blank pages are for any data that 
you may wish to record in regard to the names on opposite page. At the 
back are pages for records of births, marriages and deaths, and we ask that 
you keep a record of your family here as complete as possible as it may be of 
assistance to some in the future, who may wish to bring this history up to a fu- 
ture date. 

Copies of this book can be had by addressing Dr. Geo. Moffett, 30't' 
• ^ammacw Dldi i ., Kui]ju.t City , Mo., or Dr. A. Moffett, CllwiyVSlte, Kdub. Cj ^ fjl

PREFACE. 

In preparing this brief history of the Ballybay, Ireland, branch of 
the Moffett family, we have endeavored to make it as complete as pos- 
sible with the facilities we had at hand. We worked with the hope that 
some member of the branch with more time and means at their command 
might be able at some future time to make it more complete, which may 
be done by continuing the history of the families given, tracing those not 
given and by searching old records of land t ties. leases, army records, 
church records, etc.. in Ireland, and thereby trying to trace the family 
farther back than where this history begins. 

There are many different branches of the Moffelts in the U. S.. 
many of whom came here between 1 600 and 1 700. The spelling of 
the name differs slightly in the families and we also find that the spelling 
sometimes differs among members of the same family. We find all the 
vowels used in both the first and last syllables giving us many combinations. 

Some of the most striking spellings are Maphet. Miffit. Morfot. 
Mophat. Muffat, Moffette. Mofht. Maffet. Moffal. Maffitt. etc. 

But no matter what the spelling, they are all supposed to come from 
the same origin. Almost every family has some tradition as to the origin 
of the name. There are two principal theories as to the origin; one that 
the name and family carrying it originated near the present town of 
Moffat. Scotland, the other that it came from Italy with the spread of 
the Christian religion up through France. Normandy. England, and thence 
into Scotland. 

It is supposed that the forefathers of our branch came from Eng- 
land to Ireland about the time King William conquered the north of 
Ireland. But the fact is not certain. 

Martha Moffett. 4. daughter of James Moffet. 3. was the first of 
the Ballybay branch to emigrate to America, coming about 1835, to 
Central Illinois. 

In preparing this work we tried to get the same facts from each 
one so as to have the biographies about equal, but found it hard to do. 
Some were reluctant to send in what they could, and some could not 
send in what was required, from neglect of having kept the important 
dates in the lives of their parents and grandparents. Others responded 
Willingly and were glad to do all they could to help along, for which we 
are very grateful, and to one and all who have aided us in any way we 

—3— 



want to here express our thanks and appreciation of their aid. We hope 
that the next who tries the work may find in this some records that may 
help him. 

We cannot help but feel the mistake that we all make in not keep- 
ing a record of the important dates in our lives when we undertake a 
work of this kind. This work may contain some mistakes, but we have 
tried to get the data as near correct as possible, and have put the material 
in just as received from the parties sending it in. 

A tradition gives the oldest mention of the name (Moffett) as in 
1 066, when the Norman Knight, William de Moffette, came with the 
invading force of William the Conqueror, into England. 

Authentic church records show that Nicholde de Moffat, Archdeacon 
of Tivotdale, became Bishop of Glasgow, in 1268. 

There is a genealogy in preparation of all the Moffat Clan in 
America, by Geo. W, Maffet, of Lawrence, Kas., as editor and his- 
torian in chief, aided by several other branch historians. The above work, 
if finished, may contain a copy of this work. 

Yours, 

GEORGE MOFFETT, 
ADAM MOFFETT.

He was the owner of a race horse, which was stolen from

going to the police, they advised him to go down in the
