Agnew Clan

Originally believed to have been of Norman descent, the Agnews eventually settled in Scotland at Liddlesdale at the end of the 12th century.

They would go on to have a distinguished history and began to thrive after Alexander Agnew of Lochnaw was granted the lands of Lochnaw Castle in 1426.

Soon after in 1451, he was appointed to the role of Sheriff of Wigtown , a role his ancestors still hold today.
While the lands of Lochnaw castle are no longer under the control of the family, the Agnews still enjoy a thriving clan society to this day, thanks to the efforts of current clan chief Sir Crispin Agnew of Lochnaw, Eleventh Baronet.
