The ancestry of the name Agnew is not unusual in that it appears to have two possible sources; The most accepted version is that the name is French in origin, coming from the Barony d’Agneaux in Normandy who settled first in England and then migrated north to Liddesdale around the 12th century. The other possibility is that they were connected to one of the tribes of Ulster, maybe as a sept of of O’Gnimh (pronounced O’New).
