Lookup Thomas ADAMS 1832 Corkenhoe
« on: Saturday 24 April 10 07:57 BST (UK) »
I'm not sure if Corkernhoe belongs in Herts or Bedford but I cannot find the birth of Thomas Adams who was reputed to be born or baptised in December 1832 in this parish.  His father's name is possibly Thomas.  I do not know if mother's name and am hoping to establish this was a birth or baptism record.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you  :)

Hi,

Cockernhoe is part of the parish of Offley so I'd expect to find his birth there. I had a look in Offley IGI and found a bunch of Adams children mostly of William and Rebecca Adams. This could be a possibility but no mention of Thomas Adams. There is a marriage in that parish between William Adams and Rebecca Spring on 20 Nov 1830. However another way you could establish his parentage is by reading the census.

Had a little search on the 1851. Found this Thomas Adams looking at index:

Thomas Adams,  18, Administrative area: Hitchin, Hitchin

Perhaps someone could confirm this who has access to the 1851 census.

Yes this is Thomas - he was a boot/shoe maker.

I was thinking if you looked at 1841 census you might be able to find him with his parents.

No thats the thing - I can't find him in the 1841 census.  Another person also had a look trying her way of finding people - with no luck.

Ok I searched for Thomas Adams and varients on findmypast 1841 census. It came up with this:

Household     ADDAMS, Thos     1832     9      M     Hitchin     Hertfordshire     

If I had the credits I would have a look but unfortunately can't. This looks promising though.

These are others living nearby with spelling Addams:

ADDAMS, George     1827     14      M     Hitchin     Hertfordshire     
ADDAMS, John    1796    45     M    Hitchin    Hertfordshire    
ADDAMS, John    1829    12     M    Hitchin    Hertfordshire    
ADDAMS, Mary Ann    1826    15     F    Hitchin    Hertfordshire

Thank you for this.  I'm making a note to research this.  Is the same family together in 1851?  If Thomas is missing then its a definate possibility.  We had Thomas's father as being Thomas ... maybe this incorrect (no name for mother).

I just had a look in the new Pilot Search for the LDS website ... there is a Thomas ADAMS born 1832 in Kings Walden in Hitchin to Thomas ADAMS and Letty. 
This seems more like him given Thomas is written down as his father's name as a note on records I have.  What is Letty short for?   Could they be on the 1841 census?
