(VI) Dr. Reuben Curtis Moffat, son of
John Little (2) and Hannah (Curtis) Moffat,
was born in Ithaca, New York, December 11.



1818, died in Brooklyn, New York, August
28, 1894. He graduated in 1846 from the
medical department of the University of the
City of New York with the degree of M.D.,
and began the practice of his profession in
New York. In a short time he removed to
Newtown, Long Island, and in July, 1849, he
located in Brooklyn, New York, where he
made his home until his death. He became
an early advocate and practitioner of the prin-
ciples of homeopathy and continued until his
death a stalwart champion of this school of
medicine. In 1883 the Regents of the Uni-
versity of the State of New York, in recog-
nition of his distinguished success in his pro-
fession, conferred upon him the honorary de-
gree of Doctor of Medicine. Early in life
Dr. Moffat became a convert to the teaching
of the church of the New Jerusalem (popu-
larly known as the Swedenborgian church).
He was one of the organizers of the church
in Brooklyn, and until a clergyman was se-
cured he conducted the service. For many
years he taught a class in the church, giving
up the work only when his health failed and
he was obliged to retire from all active work,
about a year previous to his death. He was
a deep student of the teachings of the church,
and at an early age began collecting the works
of Swedenborg and the publications of the
denomination until he possessed one of the
finest and most complete libraries in the coun-
try. This library he placed at the disposal of
the public until the Brooklyn Society of the
New Church had opened their more modern
library. Dr. Moffat was an able physician.
He loved his fellowmen, loved to work among
them, loved to help them in their need, and
love of this kind begets a love which finds
expression in genuine sorrow when death
severs the tie.

He married, in Newark, New Jersey, April
IS, 1852, Elizabeth Virginia Barclay (see Bar-
clay II), daughter of George Brinley and
Abigail (Shaw) Barclay. She was born in
Cranbury. New Jersey, February 28, 1822,
died in Brooklyn, New York, May 26. 1892.

(The Barclay Line.)
This famous Scotch family is of ancient
French ancestry, dating back to Roger, who
came to England with William the Conqueror,
and was given by William Fitz Osborn, his
minister, the manor of Berkeley in Gloucester-
shire. This Roger assumed the name of de
Barchelai (de Berkeley), and havin.g given
support to Stephen he was driven from Berke-
ley manor by Henry II., when he ascended
the thorne. The valuable estate was given to
Robert Harding, who assumed the name of
Berkeley, thus founding another family that
bore the name of Berkeley and Barclay.
Henry II., in order to conciliate Roger de
Barchelai, gave him the manor of Dursley and
several other valuable estates. The name Bar-
clay is the same as the English Berkcleys, and
it was not until the fifteenth century that the
"de" was dropped from the name, and then
by one, Alexander, son of David, who prob-
ably did not like anything that savored of
French. About this time the spelling was
changed from Berkeley to Barclay. The
Saxon Glastershire Berkleys became extinct
in the male line at the death of John de Berk-
lev in 1 33 1, and the representative of the
family then went to the descendants of John
de Berchelai. who had accomnanied Margaret,
sister of Edgar Aetheline to Scotland in 1071,
and to whom the lands of Towie were granted
by Malcolm Caenmoir, her husband. King of
Scotland. A descendant of John de Berchelai,
\\'alter de Berkeley, was chamberlain of the
kingdom in n6.=; Members of the family
have been prominent in the history of Eng-
land and .Scotland. Several members of the
family immigrated to America at an early
date. Tohn Barclay, second son of Colonel
David Barclay, of LTrv. settled in East New
Jersey in 1(^84. and died in Perth Amboy in



SOUTHERN NEW YORK

1 73 1. Another member of the Barclay fam-
ily, though not of the Barclays of Ury, was
Rev. Thomas Barclay, the first rector of St.
Peter's Church at Albany. He was born about
1 668, died in 1725. He married Anna Doro-
thea, daughter of Captain Andries and Ger-
trude (Van Shaick) Drauyer. They had four
children whose descendants have intermarried
with many of the most distinguished families
of New York.

The Barclay family of Philadelphia sprang
from John Barclay, who ser\'ed as mayor of
Philadelphia, and died there in 18 16.

Another long line descended from Thomas
Barclay, who was born in Strabane, Ireland,
in 1728. At an early date he immigrated to
America and became prominent in diplomatic
service of the United States. He married
Mary Hoops, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Many of his descendants live in Virginia,
West Virginia, and other southern states.

(I) The branch of the family given below
descends from Thomas Barclay, born in St.
Mary's county, Maryland, March 18, 1755.
From family tradition he is believed to have
been a son of Robert Barclay, of Dublin, bom
in 1718. who was a grandson of Robert Bar-
clay, of Ury. Scotland, the famous apologist
of the Quakers, but the connection has never
been established. Thomas Barclay was a gal-
lant soldier in the American army during the
revolutionary war. On July 12, T776, he en-
listed from St. Mary's county. Maridand, in
the "Flving Camp", in which organization he
served for some time. In 1779 he was a mem-
ber of Major Anderson's battalion of the
Third Mar>dand Regiment, which served in
General \\^a?hington's command in New Jer-
sey. After the war he located in Shrews-
burv, New Jersey, where he made his home
until hi? death in 1804. While serving with
his command in Shrewsbury, New Jersey, he
met Catherine, daughter of John Williams,
whose property had been confiscated by the
continental congress, and who was himself a
fueitive because of his lovalty to the King.
Soon after the war he married Miss Williams.
Seven children were born of this marriage :

ried. Tune T2. 18^5. 2. William, born Sep-

The Pierrepont family,
PIERREPONT which is inseparably con-
nected with the history
of New York state, is of Norman origin, an-
tedating the Conquest. The castle of Pierre-
pont, which derived its name in the time of
Charlemagne from a stone bridge built nearby
to take the place of a ferry, lay in the south-
erly portion of Picardy. diocese of Laon,
about six miles from St. Sauveur, Normandy.
The earliest lord of the castle was Sir Hugh
de Pierrepont, who lived about 980 A. D. He
was succeeded by his son. Sir Godfrey de
Pierrepont, who left two sons, Sir Godfrey
and Sir Robert. The former was the father
of Sir Ingolbrand de Pierrepont, lord of the
castle in logo A. D., and ancestor of the
French family of Pierrepont. Sir Robert ac-
companied William the Conqueror to Eng-
land, took part in the battle of blastings. io6(3
A. D.. and was the founder of the English
branch. That he stood high with the Con-
queror is attested by the fact that many honors
and estates were bestowed upon him by the
Kin? He possessed, according to the Domes-
day Book, a memorial of the possessors of the
lands in England, of Henestede and Wrcthem
in Suffolk, and he held them of the famous
William. Duke of Normandy, afterward King
of England. Godfrey de Pierrepont held the
hundred of Belinga of said earl. The family
continued in their possessions, viz. : The cas-
tle of Pierrepont, in the south confines of
Picardv, and were benefactors to the abbev
of Thionville for lands in the territory of
Sorincourt and Veel. Sir Robert de Pierre-
pont relinquished all claim to the Normandy
estate and settled definitely in Eneland. and
it appears that, besides those lordships in Suf-
folk and Hurst in Sussex, which now retains
the name of Hurst-Pierrepont. he held other
lands of great extent in said county, amount-
ing to ten knights' fees. As generation suc-
ceeded generation the Pierreponts intermar-
ried with the high nobility of England and



became Anglicized. The arms borne by the
family of Holme-Pierrepont at the time the
American branch left England for the New
W'orld, which are used by the Pierrepont fam-
ily in the United States, are : Argent, semee
of cinquefoils, gules. A lion rampant, sable.
Crest : A fox passant proper, on a wreath.
Motto : Pie repone te. The chief seats of
the English family are: Holme-Pierrepont. a
stately pile and the ancient seat and burial
place of the family, three miles from Notting-
ham and ninety-eight from London ; Thores-
by Park, in the Forest of Sherwood, and Tong
Castle, in Salop. The descendants of .Sir God-
frey de Pierrepont, the Norman knight, were :

(J) Sir Robert de Pierrenont. son of Sir
Godfrey de Pierrepont, of Castle Pierrepont,
Picardy, Normandy, crossed to Eneland with
William the Conqueror. He fought at the
battle of Hastings, 1066, and was first lord
of the manor of Hurst-Pierrepont, which lay
north of Brighton in Sussex. He had many
honors and estates conferred upon him by
KinjT William.

Pierrepont.
