My great grandmother, Agnes Eleanor Wilson, was born about 1844 - 1847 in Northern Ireland. I have no record of her birth details, but she was the daughter of Samuel Wilson and Margaret Kinnear (Kinnier). Samuel was born in County Monaghan in 1810 and died in 1891 in County Monaghan and buried in the Braddox Presbyterian Church graveyard.
On 21 January 1862, Agnes married James Brown in Monaghan Ireland (I have no record of the church where the marriage took place). In 1863 they emigrated to New Zealand and their surname became Browne. They had 11 children - Agnes died in 1900 and James died in 1908, both in NZ.
I would like to find any details of the WILSON family. Samuel and Margaret (nee Kinnear) had at least six children - Mary Jane who married H. Harrison, Thomas who married Anna Jane Wilson, Margaret who married Thomas McKee, James who married Agnes Hately and Elizabeth who married George Wilson and of course Agnes Eleanor who married James Brown.
