Dear Carol, Glad to hear from you! My Samuel Symes ADAMS migrated here to South Australia in March, 1851, with his wife Ann (nee GALE), and his three children, Charles, Samuel Jnr., & Ellen.A fourth child, Isaac, was born on the way out to Australia - on the ship, the "Prince Regent". Hoping there is some connection somehow here!Please get back to me if you think there is!I don't know anyone who changed their name though.Are you actually referring to Samuel?Could you be more specific about this, please? For example was his name originally Samuel, or did he change his name to that, and where did you get your info from, please? Bev Schellen.
