I've been working fairly hard at tracing back my branch of the Agnew tree and I've hit a road block and would appreciate any information anyone has to help me get a few generations backwards.
I have an ancestor Patrick Agnew who was born on or about 1675. His wife was Jean Cochrane who was also born on or about 1675. They were married in 1699 on December 4 in Kirkmaiden by Drummore, Wigtown, Scotland.
As far as I can tell they had at least 3 confirmed children (William Born: 1700, James Born: 1702, and Margaret Born: 1704.
- James Agnew married a Janet Davidson - William Agnew married Ann Wallace and this spawned my family line
As best I can find Patrick Agnew had at least 1 brother (James Agnew Born: 1672, married Sarah Adair) and at least 1 sister (Agnes Agnew, married Johne McKitrick)
Around this time there were multiple Patrick Agnew's that I can find but their recorded histories don't match up with the corresponding brothers, sisters, and children that I have.
What I'm trying to find is any info on who Patrick's parents could be based on the related information.
If anyone has an Ancestry.ca account here is a link to what I have to help you visualize
