After reading over Jim's fantastic article from the link found online re: Robert McCuistion - I went back through my own records searching for the Mudie's/Moodie's/Moody's of Co. Renfrew, Scotland (Paisley/Greenock area where Alexander McQuiston/McCuiston was from), and found from some of my old postings here the following which I think are worth linking to this information in that it is now looking HIGHLY Likely that these are in fact some of our earliest Moody's as well. Since we share Ydna with Thomas MOODY b.c1710 who married Jean McQuiston/McCuiston daug. of Benjamin and the brother of Alexander McQuiston of Paisley, Scotland, this all seems to fit too nicely not to go un-noticed here, so I wanted to come back and post this message to direct you to the following messages from this board posted in 2009 and 2010. Msg. # 10024 (James McQuistan of Renfrewshire) and Msg. # 10867 which is a follow-up to that one which I posted a year later in 2010. NOTE the names and uncanny links, And how our Moody name spelling kept changing over and over again from Mudie to Moodie to Moody.Also note in msg. # 10024 the ~probable~ 3 brothers James, Edward and Robert MOODY whose children were baptized/born in Inverkip, Renfrew, Scotland in 1699 and 1716 respectively.I'd be willing to bet that these 3 have some link to our early Mudie's/Moody's of the Magilligan area of Co. L'derry, Nor. Ireland too.These exact same names pop up there as well. Not that those names weren't uncommon at that time, but to see them all lumped together in the same church at that same time frame and then the same thing over in Nor. Ireland around the same times, could be an indication that this is the part of the branch of our Moody's that came over to Nor. Ireland, or at least perhaps a part of my own branch as the family name of "DONALD / Donal" was also among this batch. Also of a lesser interest except my own immediate family is the name "McNERON" found in this area as well who one Duncan McNERON christ. on Oct. 1728 son of Patrick and Jane McNeron (all with Sources cited as being from the Old Parish Church (kirk) records of Renfrewshire, Scotland). The surname of NERON (no doubt shortened from "Mc"Neron) is a close Ydna match to my Father's. This could also be an indication of why and how that appears to be so, in that all of these early families were living in the same place in Scotland around the same time frame. Also NOTE the HOG[sic Hogg]-MOODIE marriage and that their son Alexander Hogg was christened at Port Glasgow, Scotland in 1706. We already know via a fairly new found member of our Ydna family that this is part of our branches, so again, here is representation of an earlier union of those two names again. I feel quite certain these are our family. Hope this helps to one day find the Documented Proof we all seek to prove these are our MUDIE/MOODIE/MOODY roots.
