|This is a close-up of the coat of arms of the Agnews of Lochnaw, Scotland, from whom James descended. The history of the family is recorded in "The Book of the Agnews: James Agnew of Pennsylvania" by Mary V. Agnew and is also found in one or more of the Burke's peerage books of Great Britain. Before James's family lived in Ireland, they were hereditary sheriffs of Galloway, Scotland, and James's 8th-great-grandparents were Andrew Agnew of Lochnaw and Mary Kennedy, Mary being a granddaughter of King Robert III of Scotland, who in turn was the son of Robert II, who was a grandson of Robert I, famously known as Robert the Bruce.|
