The website

tells us many things:

1823-John Gwynne, at the age of 21, was working for William Anderson, a spade maker in Bushmills. According to the diary, John ran off with William's dau, Agnes, aged 16

William's brother, Henry, was cotton merchant in Liverpool. Henry organized their marriage so that they could return to Bushmills in a respectible manner and take over the spade factory.

We also learn that Agnes had an uncle in New Orleans involved in the export of cotton.
