Morning Post, 16/12/1819:
Torbay, 11 December - Brig AGNES, Capt. Robert Barclay, sailed for Jamaica.

Caledonian Mercury, 12/7/1821:
At about 1:30am on 24 April brig AGNES, Robert Barclay master, New Orleans - Greenock, collided with brig UNION, Capt. Henry in Lat. 48.24, Long 25.0. AGNES was carrying full cargo of cotton and received so much damage that she went down in a short time. Crew and passengers (14 in number) got into the long boat, but with loss of all they had save what was on their backs. Morning is said to have been very dark, vessels were on opposite tacks and neither party saw the other until it was too late. All agree not the smallest blame can attach to either. Captain Barclay will sail in about 10 or 12 days [from Quebec] in new brig ELEANOR, of which he has got command, for Greenock.
