William Adams whose wifes' name is not known,
was the Father of Hannah Adams whom was Born in Massachusets
circa 1679.
The ancestry and parentage of William Adams remains a conjecture
as to him being the First Born William, or the Second Born William.
In that though the tradition of naming two children, of the same marriage,
by the same forename was not the rule, it was however the exception in more than
a few British {English} Family Households.
The ancestral parentage of which being, the marriage of Randall Adams and Margaret
Erpe, of England Who are shown as then living,
upon the {vistation of that time} to have had at least one child named William Adams
and another child whose name is not mentioned, to except that he was their son and lived.
The Shrop Shire visitation of England - as are each of the Voluminous editions, of those
carefully compiled callings of Early Sixteenth century England - is quite clear as to the
mentioned lineage of William Adams and the son whose name is not mentioned.
Later historian genealogist authors have suggested that William was the Descendant of Randall
Adams and Margaret Erpe. And one of the Adams family descendants has described that the descent
of William Adams was not of the Erpe Family.
I am of direct descent, of lineage, of Hannah Adams, the Daughter of William Adams.
What is missing are the detail and info' data of the certain ancestry, of William Adams above named id est;
Parrish Records, Baptismal Records, Marriage Records, A sibling family member bible, a letter written at that
time or some monument, or edifice which names the relation and marriage, of William Adams or as per the Allied ,
or and Collateral data, and info' which should exist with the ancestry, of the wife, of William Adams above named.

Hi Jeffery,
The above William Adams wed to either a native
of his home Country England, or to a woman whom he had
the fortune, to know in the New World; id est; in the Mas' Bay Colony,
her name and parentage also ancestry, I do not find as per the several
authors, chroniclers, clerics or clerks of that period.
Yes - the line of Adams family members, of Ipswich and, of BrainTree
are usually wriiten of.
I also find as per the diary, of the Grand_father{s} of our Country{s}
Presidents Adams, that Rev' Nathaniel Brewster {my ancestor} is mentioned
as per family parlor lunches, teas, and social gatherings.
Allthough the William Adams upon whom this data Base is continued, was not the ancestor
of either, of the Presidents Adams thus far. Nor do I find a ancestral relation in common
of the same.
The unbroken lineage and heritage generations of HAnnah Adams - Francis Munsy and onwards are clear to a fault.
Though the wife, of the above named William Adams is not yet revealed.
Most Humbly,
I am,

William Adams OF England - Colonial America

Anoque Mundi 6005 {`2000; 11; 14}

Dear Meredith Adams,

I welcome your brief quiry as per the Adams
lineage.

You may then of course be at ease with a
view to discuss albeit "talk" of the extant,
proven also conjectural Data and info' which
does attend unto the Adams of England - to
wit the Adams of Colonial America / New
England.

The William Adams of whom I am relative
lived some five generations anterior to your
last traced Adams ancestor of circa `1820.

The chief fact, of the Adams, of New
England is that the actual common ancestor,
of Each, of the three respective "Branches"
is yet conjectural.

To mean that if as or and when your
attentive research reveals, your ancestral
Adams lineage earlier than '1820, that
perforce if then of a colonial "Branch" 'may'
proove of the three heretofore proven
colonial "Branches".

Further that the William Adams of whom I am
of Direct descent from was, Of England though
note that the other famous Adams Men id est;
The two American presidents were of another
lineage than was my ancestor William.
Conjecture withstood - Id est if related, the
common ancestor is yet to become proven.
Though the parentage of William Adams {Above}
is quite rare to proove, in that most
historians find that {The} William Adams was
a son {a second son within the same
family} whom was also named William - a some
times Event in urban England during the
formative years of colonial expansion. Which
I have found to be the ensample upon carefull
review - study - also research of the period.
{modern writers have spelled example}

One of the Adams Descendents does not accept
that the parentage of William is as appears,
in the published editions, of the visitations
- Englands' census} from circa `1518 onward.
Though William was certainly of England and
most often is shown in the print - and later
editions of early written records as being
of the Adams - Erpe family there about
Shrop_Shire.

But certain is the nature and time of history.

Dear Tamara Copeland,

I take it then that your source - which you have understood - is not the Visitation of Shrop Shire / either volume or edition.

In that the above referenced compilation {read census} of that period and time does set fourth that Randal Adams wed Margarate Erpe {Whose parentage is alluded to be of the Erpe - Puselaw - Kemp heritage / lineage} though that William was then son to Randall _ not Thomas. Pray tell your source which I might examine more carefully.

Also the early genealogist writings, of the Colonial period ,in the Colony of Masachusets {early spelling} have stated that no connection had then been found as to the relationship of {our} William Adams and the Two Presidents Adams.

Though I do find that within your listed pedigree which clearly relates my Hannah {the senior sibling} to your Nathaniel {the following and junior sibling} two John Quincy Adams therein.

I have documented proof of the ADAMS line that goes back to Benjamin Stearns Adams my GGGG grandfather. Howevr, the information that links me to Randall Adams has all been retrieved by the internet. I have not yet validated all of the information.

Below are exerpts from the Adams lineage. To my knowledge my ADAMS lineage line is not related to John Quincy Adams the president. It is interesting that my line of ADAMS came to the US about the same time as John and John Quincy ADAMS and lived in the same areas but I have not been able to link them.

There are decendants in my line that named their children John Quincy Adams but it is not the same John Quincy ADAMS that was President of the US.

Please refer to the information below so that you can compare notes with your line. It appears that we are related and we have the same lineage line. Your Hannah was the older sibling of my GGGGGGGG grandfather Nathaniel ADAMS. The only difference is who is the oldest grandparent. Randall or Thomas??

Henry Adams came to America from England 1632-1633. He settled in Braintree MA. He had eight sons - Henry, Thomas, Samuel, Jonathan, Peter, John, Joseph, Edward. The branch for John Adams, President, is Joseph's. Anyone seriously interested in researching their Adams line should try to locate the book " A GENEALOGICAL HISTORY OF HENRY ADAMS, OF BRAINTREE, MASS., AND HIS DESCENDANTS; ALSO JOHN ADAMS OF CAMBRIDGE, MASS., 1632-1897 " compiled and edited by Andrew N. Adams, published in 1898.

On a visit to Lexington Mass last month, I found (at 1314 Mass Ave) a home with a plaque on it that said it was the Sanderson House, built in 1689, and indicated the house was a place where some British soldiers where left after the battle of Concord, as the British marched back to Boston. It is located next the the Monroe House (Inn).
I contacted a local historian , Larry Whipple, to find put who owned the home and he said that a Samuel Sanderson owned the home at the time. He gave me the following information:

Samuel Sanderson - born 1748, died 1803.
Mary Monroe (or Munroe) married Samual in 1772.
They had six children:
Amos - born 1774
Samuel - born 2feb 1777
Mary - born 1779
Issac - born 1782
Nancy - married 1820 (husband not known)
Lydia - 1831 (event unknown)

New Hampshire's first permanent European settlement began in 1623. In the wake of native populations, largely decimated by European diseases, English traders and fishermen settled at Odiorne Point in present-day Rye, and on Dover Point. By 1640, New Hampshire's Seacoast was divided among four towns or "plantations," Dover, Portsmouth, Exeter, and Hampton. Inhabitants of these towns, along with settlers in southern Maine, chose to be part of Massachusetts for much of the 1600s, but in 1680, New Hampshire became a separate province.
