The date of George Mouggach's birth and death are unknown, but if he were a similar age to his wife he would have been born on or before 1770. He married Isabel (Isobel) Forsyth on 13 December 1791 in Botriphnie, Banffshire. They had one child during their marriage, Alexander Moggach (1792-1861). George probably died at some point before 1841 in his home parish, Botriphnie, Banffshire. The lack of records mean that his parentage has not been established. Alexander's death registration gives his father's occupation as "farmer". George is the author's great great great great grandfather and the earliest known connection that the author has with other members of the Moggach family.

  2. Unable to find a death record for George. His wife, Isabel (Isobel) Forsyth, was recorded as being a widow when she died in 1856 and George is not enumerated with her on the 1841 or 1851 censuses. George was also described as being deceased when his son, Alexander Moggach's, death was registered in 1861. Subject to any other information being found, the assumption is that George died before 1841 in his home parish, Botriphnie.
