I would like to know more about the James Agnew you have a picture of.There were two British General James Agnews who fought in the War.One was killed at the Battle of Germantown in 1777 or 1778.
My James Agnew, born 1711, came to America with his father, James Agnew born, 1671, in 1717.James Agnew, 1711-1770 was married to Rebecca Scott, 1707-1779.My 4th Great Grandfather, Samuel Agnew, born 1738 was their son.Captain James Agnew, 1711 was also known as James, Jr.I don't believe that he would have been a soldier in the American Revolution since he died of poor health in 1770.
James Agnew, born 1671 was the son of James Agnew, born 1645 who was the son of Lt.-Col. Alexander Agnew, 1st of Whitehills in Scotland.Alexander Agnew, Born 1609, was the son of Sir Patrick Agnew, of Lochnaw 1st Bt and Margaret Kennedy.
There were three James in this line.James, Born 1645, James, Born 1671, and Captain James, Born 1711 (French and Indiand wars).The above three were born in Ireland.They descend from Sir Patrick Agnew of Lochnaw through his son, Lt Col Alexander Agnew.
I should also include a fourth.James', Born 1717, son James, Born 1742 and died 1825.
I wish I knew more about Agnews in the American Revolution on the American side.
