This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

Family notes

Please feel free to add or change anything that has been found. To help identify brick walls Please add the head of your Ager family line into the names in the locations section. For ease of separation and migration please add the first person in a new area outside of the state or county.

Task List

To find other members of the rather unique Ager line from all over the world and to research how they are all connected.

Break a family brick wall
Determine the origins of the Ager surname
Link Agers from origin to United States
Track migration patterns if possible
determine different lines
merge any duplicates

I wish to join the Eager project. Road block John Eager born ? died ? Married 1803 Bristol, England to Lydia Matthews.

Birth of son Matthew Eager 1804. Trying to find where John was born and where he died. He may have been from the united Kingdom or Ireland but is also possible that he was born in America (probably Massachusetts)
