Hi Stuart....yes, I do the same...put the baptism date as the birth date. I really don't know what it is for William I just have that his parents were Nicholas & Eliza. The father of Nicholas is William but other than that I am in the dark. Nicholas was a cabinet maker and lived in Reading, thats all I know at the moment. I am having better luck with other relatives but the Adams have me a bit stymied. If you are ever able to connect them, please let me know. After all Reading is not too far from London. Cheers to you too!!
