One thing is for certain, and that is that we may never know the true facts. Any respected genealogist can confirm that speculation does in fact come into play when dealing with genealogies.
As my query reported, from Nicholas back to ap Adams is correct. There were no brothers of Nicholas, so this portion forward is "utterly incorrect"...as applied to the ap Adams line. This does not make this attached portion "Bogus". According to Jackie Adams Bradshaw,(who has posted to the Genforum) there has been a discussion of Cuba and the West Indies and the Adams line. In the Adams Family Chronicles by Ethyl Young of 1982:
George Adams, the oldest of the four sons of William Adams and his wife, the former Miss Borington, married Miss Streetholt who is the daughter of Conrad Streetholt, a merchant in London.George Adams is the father of George Adams of Waterton. George was a Lieutenant in the service of Charles I, the English King who was later beheaded (1600-1649). George died in Barbados in 1647. Perhaps he did not dare to return to England with public opinion running so strongly against King Charles.
George's brother Ambrose lived and died in Barbados. In 1680 he was living in St. Michaelas near the present city of Bridgeton. If brother Henry "took his flight from the Dragon on persecution in Devonshire, England" (according
to an inscription on a monument) and went to the new world, perhaps two of his brothers remained in Barbados for the same reason.
Ms. Young lists Henry Adams as the father of the Presidential line of the Adams in the new world. She lists George Adams (her line) as the father of a second Adams line that came to the new world and cousins then of the
Presidential Adams line.
The George Adams of Watertown, MA is a well documented genealogy as listed below.
