    • According to the poem written in tribute to Houston and Agnes, "some" of the young have "flown away.. far across the sea."
    • There are two Houston Clements with wife Agnes:
      Houston and Agnes Jamison had two sons:
      1866: Hugh born in Ballynure;
      1868 James born in Ballynure (in the 1901 census his family are in Larne).
      Houston and Agnes Gamble had five children:
      1871 Elizabeth Gamble born in Larne;
      1873 Agnes born Co Antrim presumably Larne;
      1878 Robert born in Larne;
      1881 Houston born in Larne;
      c1885 Mary born in Larne

      We have speculated that the Agnes Jamison and Agnes Gamble are the same person - you will notice that the birth order of the children could suggest that. However, I have separated them into two families because:
      1. the children of Agnes Gamble are reported not to have known anything about the two born to Agnes Jamison;
      2. although the birth places are not far from each other they are different.

      I have nevertheless kept the Clements-Jamison family in the Roy~Royes data for the time being even though they do not link to anyone else in the data.

    with fondest memories from their Scotch friend, Geordie. Since all of the children have flown the nest, the poem must be later than about 1908.
