Only recently has there been a revival of the clan, largely due to the authors 35 years of research and his eventual recognition as hereditary clan chief and as Moffat of that ilk by the Lord Lyon in 1983. From its origins with the Norman, Monte Altos, who came to Scotland in the 10th century, the family that gave its name to the ancient Moffatdail played a prominent role in national history.
