Searching for information regarding ancestry of William Moffat born about 1797 Edinburgh, Scotland. He married Eliza Lund in 1836 in Finsbury, Middlesex and they had five children in South Leith,Scotland; Priscilla born 1839, died before April 1858, Margaret Mary Ann born 1841, Janet born 1843 (my great grandmother) William born 1844, Charles born 1846.
On the 1851 census William was a corn dealer.
The family came to Australia in 1853, and spent about 4 years in South Australia before moving to Victoria where he became a bookseller.
Eliza died in 1858 and William in 1864,his parents unknown.
Would appreciate any info regarding William Moffat's ancestors.
