    • Perhaps early 1930s or so based on the fact that Jocelyn Logan (b 1926) can remember her on visits to Larne.
    Notes 
    • We have been recording her name as Gamble, but I have offered both Jamison and Gamble in our data. See comments in the family file notes.
      Note the speculation about the name Jamison in The Logan Family (in Histories) and note that at least one researcher has Agnes Jameson married to Huston Clements.

      Additional notes (unlikely but you never know!)…
      There is an Agnes Gamble born 14 Jan 1836, baptised 13 Mar 1836 at Carnmoney (Antrim, Ireland), daughter of Jas and Eliz Gamble. If she is our Agnes, she is the same age as her husband and her babies were born when she was 30-47.
      There is also an Agnes Gamble baptised at Ballyeaston on 19 Oct 1835, daughter of David Semple and Elizabeth Gamble [note that her surname is that of her mother] If she is our Agnes, she is one year older than her husband and her babies were born when she was 31-48.
      There is an Agnes Jameson baptised 29 Aug 1851 (daughter of George and Agnes (née Wilgar) at St Anne's Shankill.

    • 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.
