I’m looking for information on a relative a Thomas and Patrick Agnew.
On of my relatives awhile ago did some research on our family tree (Guernsey Agnews) and I don’t agree with the information on a Thomas Agnew and am missing some information on Patrick.
Patrick died Dec 20 1796 and was buried in Guernsey.The marriage register in St. Michael’s Church, Southampton shows that he married a Guernsey lady Mary Gogget( or Gognet) by a special license on Feb 17 1745.
Patrick was a soldier stationed in Guernsey and left the army there.His friend M’Culluch also settled there andit was said that the Agnews and M’Culluchs of Mystown in Scotland had been good friends for many years.
It is assumed that Patrickwas born in Ireland around 1720 and that he was not the eldest son.
I then have some limited information on his parents a Thomas Agnew and Eleanor Agnew.It is said that Thomas left Port Patrick, Wigtonshire to marry his cousin.
I’m therefore trying to find out if anybody has any information on Patrick’s correct date of birth and also I if his parents really were Thomas and Eleanor and if so what information is there on them.If not, I would to see if anybody has information on who Patrick’s parents really were.
