John Agnew has Irish ancestors.


BDM is conjecture.

James Agnew was probably born in County Londonderry, the place where he was imprisoned and his death sentence commuted to transportation. The comment in the court file was that his case was contained in "a return of criminal cases brought under the consideration of the Lord Lieutenant from 1 July - 31 Dec 1836"[1].

Points for Future Research

It is not known if John Agnew subsequently travelled to Australia. Did he make it there?
