Hello Helen
Thatís excellent information about the Ďwillí, great work!  Last night I remembered that I had the MIís for Dilhorne Churchyard that I purchased a while ago when looking for some other Dilhorne ancestors.  Anyway, I had a look this morning and found this entry

68. THOMAS ADDAMS the son of / THOMAS ADDAMS / Was interred / January? 11th 1750 / Aged 29 years

It doesnít mention a wife, but in light of the documents that you have found and the fact that they donít want Mary to have his money Ė it maybe isnít a surprise that they havenít mentioned her.

It looks like we are on the right lines with Mary Adams

Hello Helxx

Thank you for the reply.  I was having a look on Familysearch this afternoon and saw the same information.  It was the only Mr Adams I could find who had married a Mary.

I saw the death of a Thomas Adams in 1750, which would fit nicely with the dates.  Its a shame it doesn't give the age of Thomas Adams who died.  I must admit though, it's certainly a possibility.  I'm going to try and see if I can find out any more details tomorrow.

Many thanks

Thank you for the replies. I thought Adams would be her previously married name. I will have to see if I can find a Mr Adams who died between abt 1745 and 1753 who had previously been married to a Mary.....I love these puzzles  :D

Staffordshire / William Armishaw married Mary Adams

My husband's 5 x great grandfather was William Armishaw, born about 1729 in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire.  He married Mary Adams on 4 Jan 1753 at St Peter's Church, Caverswall, Staffordshire.  She was aged 24 and a widow. (Source: Familysearch).

A number of trees on Ancestry have her father as Robert Adams.

As she was a widow when she married, would her name, 'Adams' be her previously married name or her maiden name

Many thanks

Hello David
Yes, you get 4 extra sheets.  In the instructions on the inside page of the book, the publisher does say you can photocopy them (so no copyright issues), then glue them on the edge of the page or in the gutter and fold them back for reference to the original.
