Joseph Adams is at the head of this family. He was born about 1754, but we have not yet found a record of his birth. Joseph married his second wife Elizabeth Shepherd at Great Haseley, Oxfordshire in 1799, and they lived and had 13 children there, where most of them worked as agricultural labourers.
Elizabeth Shepherd was the daughter of William Shepherd and Mary Kellett, who married at Great Haseley in 1773. We also found records of William Shepherd’s parents and grandparents in the Great Haseley parish records
James Adams, son of Joseph and Elizabeth Adams, was born in 1806. He was an agricultural labourer and lived in Great Haseley all his life. James married Hannah Beamsley in 1832 at Stoke Talmage. Hannah Beamsley was born in 1813 at Stoke Talmage, close to Great Haseley. She was the daughter of James Beamsley and Phoebe Church, who married at Stoke Talmage in 1805.
James and Hannah had a large family, who were mostly girls. As far as we have been able to tell, only their son John passed on the family name to another generation. John, who was born in 1844, married another Adams – Fanny Adams from Thame, Oxfordshire, as yet we do not know whether the two families are linked by relationship as well as marriage. From census records we know that John was an agricultural labourer and gardener.
John and Fanny’s son Jack Adams, born in 1886, was my great-grandfather. Jack was a groom, then served in WWI, where he drove trucks at the front line. He became a chauffeur after the war.
Jack married Sarah Borton in 1907.
