I haven't done a lot of genealogy on the Agate family, but will post what I have here.Feel free to use it.I would like any additional information anyone has that can shed some light on this family in England.
My husband (still living):
Donald Richard Agate b. 12 Apr 1935 Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada m1 1957 Francis Ruth Tucker Victoria, BC, Canada issue; 7 sons all living m2 Nita Agate 1984 Spirit Lake, Idaho, USA
Richard Harry-Colville Agate b. 6 Jan 1908 Brighton, Sussex, England m 16 Apr 1933 Grace Marion Robertson in Calgary, Alberta, Canada He died May 1992 Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; She died 1983 Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
He immigrated to Canada with his parents at the age of 3. Issue; Dorothy; Donald; Joan; William (twin); Robert (twin); David; Charles; Victor
William Richard Agate b. 12 May 1887 Preston Park, Brighton, Sussex, Eng. died 13 Sept 1962 Calgary, Alberta, Canada.m. Maude Lena Colville Foreman (or Young) 31 Mar 1907 in London, Eng.She was born 27 Mar 1887 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.and died 21 May 1976 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.There is some family stories that her father was involved in some unsavory legal problems in Canada and moved his family to England, changed his name and later moved back to Calgary, Alberta, Canada.Her maiden name on marriage was Foreman, however, one of her brothers lived with her and Wm in Alberta, Canada later, and his name was Jack Young.
William and Maude had issue: Richard Harry-Colville; Joan Lillian; Charles Stanley; Donald Frederick; Jack (John)William; Victor James; Faye; Ruth.Have marriages and some of their children's names.All the children but Richard were born in Canada.
William Richard Agates parents:
Phillip Harry Agate b. 1861 Preston Park, Brighton, Sussex, England m. Caroline Anne Hall b. 1865 Preston Park, Brighton, Sussex, England.
I think Phillip's fathers name was Richard Agate, who was married in 1853 in Brighton Town Hall, Bartholomews, Brighton, Sussex, England.But I have no proof that he was his father, and it does not list Richard's brides name.
I also think William had a brother named John, but not sure.He probably had other siblings as well.
I would like any additional information anyone might have to the above Agate's.It is really difficult for me to do searches on the England or the Canadian Agate lines.Anything would be appreciated.
