Hi Michael,Sorry for late reply been on hols. My Agar Family are from Redcar and Marske by the Sea. There may be a connection pre 1549 but I have not been able to confirm.your William was christened 17.3.1792 in York .Joseph and Elizabeth H were married in York 12.4.1787(from IGI). I cannot trace Joseph being christened in York !!! There are two Agar groups near York one at Stockton on the Forest (for some 6 generations Comptrollers of the KIngs forests) and the other at Dunnington just south of Stockton.Perhaps your Joseph is of that ilk.The Agars were well known in York as Freemen of the City,Aldermen, and leading figures in the Merchant Venturers. They were lawyers and Merchants from medieval times.Ihave a lot of genral info on our families if you are interested.Regards Keith.
