I'm also looking at Marks Adams and Ann Smith who married 22 Apr 1790 St. Mary the Virgin, Dover, Kent as parents of my Thomas Adams who married Elizabeth Kimber :)
Can you please tell me more about William Henry Adams Snr., and how he is connected to Marks Adams? I cannot find reference to him on any birth, baptism or marriage entries.
Do you have the death certificate for your Thomas Mark Adams who died 18 Feb 1886? If so does it actually have "Mark" as his middle name and does it list his parent's names?
I found the attached marriage notice in 1883 in an Australian newspaper for Thomas Richard Kimber Adams, son of Richard Kimber Adams who was the son of Thomas Mark Adams from Kent, England.
Also attached is the baptismal entry for Thomas Marks Adams born 04 Dec 1825 and baptised 30 Dec 1827 in St. Mary the Virgin, Dover Kent son of Thomas Adams and Elizabeth. Thomas Marks Adams came to Australia and married Sarah Anderson in 1849 in Sydney. Their son Thomas Mark Adams born in 1854 in Sydney is my 2 x great grandfather.
It would be great to sort this out so any information you have would be greatly appreciated.
