Hello Jason,I spotted your query re Moffats from the Shetlands.
My greatgrandfather William Moffat was born 16/9/1860 at Setter ,Walls,Shetland islands.His parents were James Moffat b.29/11/1835 Brabister,Walls S.I. and Agnes Laurenson b.1835 at Vesquoy,Walls,S.I.
My ancestors emigrated to Karamea in 1874 on ship Ocean mail.Although our families appear to be related i haven't been able to find the link up as yet.
Some time ago i made contact with a shetland islander geneologist by the name of Tony Gott and found he has researched our ancestors quite extensively.It could be well worth your while checking out his website which is firstname.lastname@example.org .Hopefully you will finf the missing links you are seeking.
Lets know how you get on sometime.
