Edward and Margaret Moffatt- sons Charles, Edward, George

Postby francesca » Sun Jan 13, 2019 7:18 pm

I'm looking for any information at all about my great great grandparents Edward and Margaret Moffatt. Their sons were Charles, (my great grandfather born 1868- he moved to America and married Margaret Cummings) Edward (born 1861) and George (1864.) They were Roman Catholics but there are so many churches in Bootle I have no idea which one they attended.

I'll be coming to Bootle in July but would love to have at least some of the legwork done. I have no census information and since I'm in America I'm not even sure where to look.

If one of you knows which way to direct me, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks so much,

Francesca

Hello Francesca and welcome, first of all what if any documentation do you have to substantiate the names and dob's?? I have had a check today and turned up little except a possible merchant seaman link for Charles whose address was given just as Bootle. Located him in US census but only gives England as pob. A search of the free BMD database shows only a few possibles in the greater Liverpool area none with a matching mother maiden name.Due to the possible misspelling ie Mofat, Muffat, Mofitt etc hard to trace I have a family in 1871 but no connection to Bootle whatsoever but will list here for possible elimination:::

Hi Bob yes I followed that family right through but held off as it seems our poster is looking at a Bootle connection hopefully she may be able to provide a bit more.
