I have Adams ancestors in Sturminster Newton. My Grandmothers father, Harry Charles Adams was born in Fiddleford and baptised in Sturminster Newton.Harry was the son of John and Sarah.John was I believe John Mason Adams who was baptised on 5/8/1830 in Sturminster Newton.His parents were Charles and Susannah.I found a marriage in Purton,Wilts on 28/7/1823 between Charles Adams and Susannah Mason. Bearing in mind the MASON link, I think this must be them.Do you have any links through your Adams ? Would be glad to share any information I have. I have an Adams section on my website at www.communigate.co.uk/dorset/budden which at present is very limited.
