Incidentally, there was a Catherine, Sylvia and a Charles all on the manifest, and there are records for Catherine, born Stourbridge March 1843, Sylvia born Stourbridge June 1840 and Charles, born Stourbridge Dec 1841.

Thanks bbart!  ;)

Hmm...The Manifest has Sylvia born c1851 & Malky has found a birth for 1840...

Has anyone found the family in 1851?

GRO has:
ADAMS, CATHERINE        KINGTON     
GRO Reference: 1843  M Quarter in STOURBRIDGE UNION  Volume 18  Page 496

 ADAMS, SYLVIA        FIDDIAN     
GRO Reference: 1840  J Quarter in STOURBRIDGE UNION  Volume 18  Page 441

ADAMS, CHARLES        EVERS     
GRO Reference: 1841  D Quarter in STOURBRIDGE UNION  Volume 18  Page 445

As Malky said, an incidental finding.  I think the ages are too far out for the Miss Adams in question?

bbart...

Have you found a marriage for Adams - FIDDIAN?

I wonder if Jane Elizabeth McLean was a 2nd wife/partner?

"Fiddian: This ancient surname, originally popular in Cornwall, is a development of the medieval given name 'Vivianus', of Roman (Latin)"    

"When the name Sylvanus, with variation, appears in the next generation, it would seem to be gender specific....used for boys. I wonder if it is a family name (surname) from earlier ADAMS ancestry?"

https://www.behindthename.com/name/sylvanus

From the marriage, father James was a Farmer...

"It is no coincidence the fields and forests surrounding the Mediterranean are haven to shepherds, farmers, and wildlife. They're guarded by aged Sylvanus, a benevolent spirit of nature, whose glittering eyes and easy grin match the vibrant life that grows in these lands."

One never knows from where, names were derived?

No help in finding her but you did wonder about the name  ;)

Hi All,

I'm not convinced the Sylvia Adams in Stourbridge is the correct lady.
The above is listed on the 1861 Census at Halesowen with her family. She is recorded as Silvey Adams , she's 19 and a Nailer.  Parents are Charles and Sarah Adams.

Looby :)

Thanks Looby,

I did doubt it myself as did bbart but worth checking to be sure as Sylvia's age differed a lot as did her name so it's good to have it discounted.

Think I've found her marriage to a George Crumpton in 1869 - and the couple are on the 1871 Census at Hasbury, Worcestershire  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5B7-YYS
So that does seem to discount her.

Back to the drawing board ;D

I was also thinking that she might just be "Emily", and took on a new first name when she set sail to start a new life, but I can't find an Emily that works either! 

Annie: I didn't look for the Adams/Fiddian marriage; like everyone else, I figure it was an incidental finding, and didn't want to muck things up further with more names and places!

No problem bbart...it was just another way of possibly discounting as it was more the fathers' name/occ. which was of interest for that reason  ;)

I searched Scottish records for an Emily/Emma (interchangeable) but not much luck.
