Is there any truth in the story I recently have heard that the English 'Mother Day' tradition originally derived from a misunderstood 'Modder' or 'Moder' day, which was a tribute to some local Rev. Mod(d)er?

None whatever. Mothers' Day is commercial, like the American one, and Mothering Sunday is when apprentices and girls in service went home to be mothered - as they lived at their place of work the rest of the year.
