Thomas Agnew & Elizabeth Main
« on: Thursday 09 February 17 07:17 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone assist with information on Thomas Agnew and Elizabeth Main (or Mean), married in Wigtown, with children Thomas (b 1805), William (b 1811) and Andrew (b 1815)?  Their marriage may have taken place in Kirkcolm, Wigtown on 21 Sept 1794, but we also have dates of birth for the pair (1788 and 1789 respectively) which make that impossible.  The William Agnew born to them in 1811 was my g-g-g-g-grandfather.

Some Christenings seem to have taken place Ayrshire also.

Kirkholm, Wigtown;
ANDREW, 21 Sept 1794, Father THOMAS Agnew , Mother Elizabeth McMEAN**
Leswalt, Wigtown;
THOMAS, 28 Jan 1805, Father THOMAS Agnew, Mother Elizabeth MAIN
St Quivox and Newton, Ayrshire;
WILLIAM, 31 Aug 1811, same Parents as Thomas
Ayr, Ayrshire
ANDREW, 14 Dec 1815, same Parents Thomas/William

There are other possible Children on F/S.Org 1795+ that just list Father as Thomas, no Mother named.

2 different couples?

Andrew 1815 is easy to find on Census
Andrew 1794 is a Farmer of  347 acres, employing 9 in 1851 Census
