John Adams and Alys
John ADAMS. [PC M4-23-1].
Born about 1500-1505; son of Robert ADAMS. He was of Barton St. David, Somersetshire, England.
He married Alys in 1530.
He died before 1542-1543, as he is not listed in the Subsidy Rolls for 1542 and 1543. No record has survived of his death or the settlement of his estate. (S3).
Alys (Alice). [PC M4-23-2].
Born about 1505 at Barton St. David, Somersetshire, England.
She married John ADAMS in 1530.
The Subsidy Rolls of Somersetshire for 1542 and 1543 list Alys Adams, widow, owning taxable property in the shape of goods. This seems to establish conclusively that the family were copyholders of the manor and not freeholders. This Alys Adams is assumed to be the widow of John Adams. (S3).
CHILDREN of John ADAMS and Alys:
- 1. Henry ADAMS. [PC M4-23]. Born about 1531 at Barton St. David, Somersetshire, England; according to his own testimony. (S3). He married, possibly Rose, about 1554. She is thought to be the Rose Adams buried at Barton St. David on 20 September 1598. Henry died about 1596, probably at Barton St. David, Somersetshire, England; as his estate was settled between 12 August 1596 and 8 January 1597. (S3).
