Dianna, although there are many derivations of the spelling- Agan is the true way. The fault lies with the collators of records gathered in Ireland and England pre 1900 the fact that most of them were poorly educated along with the Irish accent caused so many mistakes in the spelling. The names I have gathered are Egan, Eagan, Hagan, Agins, Aggons +Agans. all of whom turned out to Agan and part of my family.I have my G.G.G.Granddad John agan born in Co. Mayo 1797/8 and his wife Ellen. Their son Patrick married Mary Cassidy ( from Co. Mayo ) in Newcastle upon Tyne about 1851.I know members of the family went to the mining industry in the states around the time of the famine.I would be interesred to hear what you have collected so far and maybe I could share info. with you. regards gordon Agan
