Notes for THOMAS ADAM ADAMS:
He traveled from England to New York on the ship Bark Leon with his wife and son Adam who was 2.
Bark - Barque (Norw: Bark)
This vessel is a typical Bark. The reason why this ship is called a bark is the way it is rigged. It has three masts, with the foremast and mainmast square rigged and the mizzenmast fore-and-aft rigged. It wasn't unusual for Barks to be re-rigged as Ships or vice-versa. A "bark" rigged vessel, could sail with fewer crew members than the "ship" rigged.
His Obit reads:Thomas Adams, Sr. was b. in Co. Cornwall, E., 1796 and was converted through the ministry of Wm. O'Brien, the founder of the Bible Christian Church in Cornwall, England.After moving to another part of E. he joined the Wm. Ch., and was appointed a local preacher.

Bible Christian records for christenings - Morwenstow and area was part of
the Kilkhampton Circuit - the BC chapel in Morwenstow was at a little
place called Woolley, and it was called simply Woolley Chapel.I always
thought it was at Woodford, but it wasn't - I've just found Woolley on the
map. And by the look of it it was nothing more than a huddle of agr. lab
cottages and a chapel whose congregation was drawn from the surrounding farms.
I believe the cemetery memorial inscriptions for the Methodist chapel at
Woodford is online, and it wouldn't hurt to look at it too.

Notes for MARY SAYERS:
Per John Dale, 7/2005 at Aldhurst Farms: I have had a dig through some of our old paperwork and as yet have not found any old letters, although it may take some time as there is a lot to go through.However I have found a photograph which is dated 1862 and is supposedly of Mary Dale (Sayers) which you may find interesting.Also in the bottom of the drawer was an old leather wallet, empty unfortunately but bearing the name of a Joseph Sayers (Dorking, our local town).I have no idea who he is but youmay be able to shed some light on this.He may be from a generation earlier.
