CLAN MOFFAT UK
Bringing our people together
Join Clan Moffat UK Association!
We descend from the ancient Scottish Borders families of Moffat, who wielded power and influence from the 11th Century: Found at the side of the Bruce and William Wallace, battling at Bannockburn in 1314 and in 1746 at Culloden.
1609 saw King James' Commission clamp down on lawlessness in the Scottish Borders and Clan Moffat were forcibly dispersed across Scotland and beyond: Moffat Reivers were the main culprits, fire-raising and stealing livestock from rival clans. Leaderless for hundreds of years, our Clan Chief is now Madam Jean Moffat of that Ilk.
Clan Moffat UK seeks to bring together descendants of the dispersed Clan to share history, stories, genealogy and good company at events we host. The envy of many, we have a database of Moffats that can assist in ancestry research and connect you with your ancient kinsmen, be you a Moffat, Mowat, Muffat or any of the derived names. Membership brings a twice-yearly journal with intriguing articles and information
A rowan tree at Carrifran, near Moffat, known as “The Survivor Tree” was awarded Scotland’s Tree of the Year 2020 title. The tree has now been chosen as the UK entry to the European Tree of the Year award.
The Borders Forest Trust who manage the site at Carrifran have asked for the Clan’s support by voting for the The Survivor Tree. Through this entry the Trust are keen to demonstrate what can be achieved in landscape scale restoration in Scotland.
In 2010 Clan Moffat gave full support to the Border Forest Trust’s attempt to raise funds for projects to encourage wildlife and bio-diversity and the Clan was awarded stakeholder status by the Trust.
For more information about the Border Forest Trust and to vote by the end of February, please go to the Trust’s website - bordersforesttrust.org
