The clan recently received a mail from Norway regarding another descendant of Robert Moffat, Berit Monn-Iverson…
I was born in Oslo, my mother’s family comes from West and Middle of Norway. My father’s family comes from Sweden, Småland and Värmland. My father’s cousin Vivian Jahr had been doing research in Värmland long before me and gave me the opportunity to follow after her steps. She came in contact with the family Schützer . This side of the family brings us back to the many nobilities and bishops families in Värmland. Cameen, Kax, Brunius, von Kiessel, Plenningskjöld , Liljebjörn and Schützer (a military family).
One branch stops by Robert Moffat who died in Väsby, father to Margareta Moffat who were married to Niclas Björnsson Liljebiörn from Gillberga. Their son JEAN Nilsson Liljebjörn married MARGARETA (Maria) Ersdotter from Kila, their son ERIK Jeansson Liljebjörn married STINA Mattsdotter Fernlöf from Kila, their daughter KRISTINA Eriksdotter Liljebjörn married GUSTAF Fredrik Schützer from Långserud, their daughter LISA Maria Schützer married ANDERS Andersson from Stavnäs, their daughter CHRISTINA Andersdotter married OLOF Andersson from Eda, their daughter CHRISTINA Olofsdotter married LARS Olsson from Västra Fågelvik, who moved to Christiania (Oslo) where my grandmother DAGMAR Alvilde Ovidia Olsen was born.
After some years I found on the web links to Moffat Clan and other sites, and was excited about all I found. Some years ago I went to Scotland and England to search more about Robert. I found his birth approval brief from Privy Council of Scotland, and this summer I found at Riksarkivet in Stockholm this letter signed by Hedvig Eleonora, and Lorentz von der Linde,vid R. Marschens stelle Gustaf Otto Stenbock, Amiral Magnus Gabriel de la Gardie, S.R. Cantzler Gustavus Soop, vid skattemästerens stelle
