    • 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 (named Jamison in Ireland, Civil Registration Marriages Index, 1845-1958) 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 married in 1866 are reported not to have known anything about the two born to Agnes Jamison before 1866;
      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.
