Re: Adgeys with Liverpool Connections
No, no bells ringing yet. If you have access to the Belfast or Northern Ireland telephone directory you may find some living Adgeys listed there. A friend went home to Belfast a few years ago and copied out names addresses and phone numbers for me. I did speak to one of them on the phone who told me that he believed ALL Adgeys must be connected. He promised to get back to me once he had looked into the matter but I never heard from him again and have sinced move house. From the almost indecipherable notes I scribbled while talking to this man on the phone I can tell you that he believes Adgey is the modern or Anglicised version of a Huegenot name.(The spelling he gave me for this Huegenot name isd'Asigeny/ay/ney)That he thinks the Adgeys first went to Ireland about 300-400years ago, they worked as servants for elite families, worked in the linen industry and he recalls something about Adgeys being involved in some sort of gun running about 1912/13. It may be worth trying to contact one of these Irish Adgeys again. I have searched just about everywhere for the name and Ireland seems to be about the only place where it still exists. Anyway let me know what you think.
