    • (1) D'Cruze, Shani, Ed., Colchester People: The John Bensusan-Butt Biographical Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century Colchester, Vol. 1, 2nd Ed., 2010, p. 9:

      AGNIS ROBERT
      Gardener
      w. 1782

      Eldest son of Thomas Agnis . . . from whom in 1733 he inherited the family house and garden ground called Childwell Moor, St Botolphs, where he then lived. This was in the valley beyond Moor Lane. His own will of 1782 . . . leaves this to his nephew [?] and executor John Agnis . . . . Robert had no adult son [?], his boy Thomas being apparently young and sickly, receiving £5 only 'if living'. The bequest to John was also subject to cash legacies of £20 apiece to Robert's daughters Ann Wright, Mary Fiske and Abigail Agnis, as well as provision for his well beloved wife Ann in the form of £10 and two rooms in the house with their furniture. Robert and Ann had married in 1754 . . . she being then Ann Manning, a widow of St Botolph's.

      [Note by compiler: The John AGNIS who is described above as the nephew of Thomas AGNIS, was described in Thomas' will as Thomas' son.]
