    Notes

      NOTES:

      None of the data on William AGNEW and his wife have been documented. Ms. Taunton states that William W. was born about 1765 in IRELAND. Evidence is also given that the AGNEWs originated in SCOTLAND and relocated to IRELAND after CROMWELL usurped the English throne. Compiler has theorized that William and Christine were probably married between 1750 and 1765 in SCOTLAND or IRELAND (probably the latter). There is one bit of evidence cited by Ms. Taunton that William AGNEW was born about 1734; compiler suspects this is the birthdate of William, the father of William Watkins AGNEW.
