I don't have much on my Moffat/Moffatt family. Only that his name was Robert Moffatt, his wife was Mary, and they were the parents of Elizabeth Moffat (Bessie). Bessie was baptized in the Parish of Donaghenry, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland in 1814. Older members of the family, now deceased, indicated that Bessie was born in Scotland, but I believe she was born in Ireland. I am sure the parents were born in Scotland.
A family story is that Bessie (Lady Moffat) was the daughter of a wealthy land owner in Scotland and she ran off to Ireland with the coachman. As with many family stories, I have never been able to find any fact in this story.
