re: From Maryland State Archives, Baltimore County Court (Chancery Papers) 1837/03/14 C369 - Estate of Thomas W. Tenant. Mary Tenant, Henry THOMPSON, & John P. Kennedy, vs. Jane Tenant, Matilda Tenant, Emily Tenant, Virginia Tenant, Thomas W. Tenant, Henrietta Gittings, Lambert Gittings, THOMAS ADAIR, LOUISA ADAIR,(perhaps from Antrim ?) Amanda Irving, Edgar Irving and Eliza McLanahan. ..................... Another Adair with possible connections in Baltimore was mentioned in the "Belfast Newsletter".24 Mar 1829. "FOR BALTIMORE. The very fine fast-sailing Ship. HENRY CLAY, Captain THOMAS PARKER, Is daily expected to arrive in this harbour, and will sail for the above Port shortly after, due notice of which will be given to Passengers. As this desirable conveyance presents great inducements to Emigrants, it is hoped that early application will be made to secure berths; and every thing shall be comfortably arranged for the Voyage.
Captain PARKER is well known for his skill and experience as a Navigator, and for his kind and benevolent treatment to Passengers. The demand for Labourers and Mechanics of every description increases every day in Baltimore, owing to the various extensive new works now carrying on in that neighbourhood, particularly the Rail Road, at nearly treble the wages current in this country.
Another first class ship will succeed the Henry Clay, and Sail in three weeks after. For Freight or Passage, apply to Mr. JOHN ADAIR, or GEORGE ASH. Waring-street, 24th March, 1829."
