I have other documentation besides the Old Kittery book. There is some in in Genealogy of Maine and New Hampshire. Contact me and I will share. Also some odds and ends from other resources. I am a descendant of Christopher from son John, to John, to John, to Thomas, to Thomas Frederick Adams, etc. Just finished my research and think I have documented the link about as well as old records will allow. That "petition" is strong evidence, as is the entry that Christopher of Braintree bought land in Kittery and established himself there. The number of sons listed in Henry's will matches neither the number of children nor the nunmber of sons. I have alternative names for the blanks,but can find nothing at all to substantiate those names, and yet there are the three substantiation entries which would place Christopher in that list.
