First of all let me apologize, I did not mean that the lineage was bogus in and of itself, but rather that the connection to the Ap Adams line was bogus.This whole thing started in 1853 with a lineage printed in the NEHGS Register.
Actually according to the Complete Peerage 1910 edition (and since then confirmed by the College of Heralds in England and the on-site research of Col. Charles E. Banks)the Ap Adams pedigree is as follows (I am pruning to just basic data)
1. Reyonld Ap Adams m. Joane de Knoville
2. Sir John Ap Adams, Knt of Beverstone etc. born about 1265 d. 1311 m. Elizabeth de Gurnay
3. Sir Thomas Ap Adam b. 1304 died bfore 1343 m 1st Margery m 2nd Joane Inge (all chidlren by 1st marriage)
4. Robert d.s.p. Harmon d.s.p. John Ap Adam b. c. 1335 living in 1375 wife unknown
5. John Ap Adam b.c. 1360 d. 1424 without issue m. Margaret
This line ended in 1424 when John's nephew John Huntley inherited his estates.
The College of Heralds also gives the ancestry of Nicholas Adams of Fenn and agrees that it is valid back through John Adams who acquired the Fenn estate by marriage in about 1450 but they state that the lineage linking John to the Ap Adams is in error.
In Bartlett's Adams book he has a College of Herald pedigree of Fitz Adam of Charlton-Adams in Somersetshire which he feels is the probable ancestry of Nicholas Adams.I have not investigated that pedigree which ends in 1252, but it seems a more likely candidate since the family is right next door geographically to Barton St. David than the Ap Adams family.
Regarding the material of Ms. Young;
Henry Adams is documented (original parish records and wills as well as the research of Col. Charles E. Banks and J. Gardner Bartlett) to have been born, married and resided in and near Barton St. David, Somersetshire, until he immigrated to the US.He was the son of John Adams and Agnes (Stone ?) and had 1 known brother John who was born about 1577 and died probably in 1609 when his will was probated.
That brother John left 5 known children,3 daughters and 2 sons, John who died unmarried in 1629 and Richard who was alive in 1629 but whose marriage and/or death record has not been found. (at least by me :))
While it is sure that there were many other Adams families living in the Somersetshire area (A Christopher Adams and a Samuel Adams for example show up in the records of Barton St. David about this same time)there is no evidence to suggest that Henry Adams had any connection to Barbados or London.There are litterally dozens of Adams families with deep roots in London.Since George is supposed to have married a London girl I would look there for his family.I am familiar with Ms. Young's work but I don't remember any sources for her statements regarding George, William or Ambrose Adams.I would be happy to hear that I am wrong.
