Biographical history

Businessman and politician, George Moffat, Sr. (1810-1878) was born in Gretna Green, Dumfrieshire, Scotland and emigrated to New Brunswick in 1830. His lumbering business was one of the largest on the North Shore. He was a justice of the peace and resided in Dalhousie, Restigouche County.

Moffat entered politics in 1866, running unsuccessfully for a seat in the House of Assembly. He stood for election to the House of Commons in 1868, but also met with defeat. Ultimately, he was elected to the House of Commons on the Conservative ticket in a by-election in 1870. He sat in the House for several years, retiring from public life in 1877. He died in 1878.
