Benjamin Adams who was born about 1810 is at the head of this family.
Benjamin lived and worked in Thame, Oxfordshire as an agricultural labourer. He married Sarah Dorsett at Thame in 1831, and they had nine children. From looking at census records we know that they were all farm workers, some stayed in Thame, others moved to Kent.
Benjamin and Sarah’s daughter Fanny married another Adams – John Adams from Great Haseley in Oxfordshire, as yet we do not know whether the two families are linked.
Although we have researched the records for Thame we have no further clues to Benjamin’s ancestry.
Sarah Dorsett, his wife, was the daughter of Martin Dorsett and Mary Dormer, who married at Thame in 1809. This was Martin Dorsett’s second marriage, his first wife Elizabeth died at Thame in 1808.
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.
