Not related, just reading messages and love a challenge.
There is a Bucklers Hard (not hand) just to the right of New Forest in Hampshire, England. Just below Southampton.
This has to be the place.
Just some info from a search which gave me a relevant date to work with.
HMS Victory stands today as the world's oldest commissioned warship. Still manned by Officers and Ratings of the Royal Navy, the Victory has seen over 200 years of almost continuous service.
Best known for her role in the Battle of Trafalgar, the Victory currently has a dual role as the flagship of the Second Sea Lord and as a living museum to the Georgian navy.
Launched in 1765 at Chatham Dockyard, the Victory was commissioned in 1778 and continued in active service for the next 32 years. In 1812 the Victory was retired from frontline duty and anchored in Portsmouth Harbour, on the south coast of England. For the next 110 years the Victory remained at her moorings in Portsmouth Harbour fulfilling a combination of practical and ceremonial roles.
In 1922, amid fears for her continued survival, the Victory was moved into Portsmouth's Royal Naval Dockyard and placed in No2 Dry Dock. Work then began on restoring the Victory to her 'fighting' 1805 condition.
Open to the public all year round, HMS Victory allows the visitor to explore the world of the Georgian navy, experiencing both the ship herself and the lives of the men who lived within her 'wooden world'
On 13th December 1758, the Board of Admiralty in London, placed an order for the construction of twelve new line of battle warships, amongst which was a 100 gun 'first rate' that was to become ‘Victory’.
Victory’s keel was laid down on July 23rd 1759 at Chatham to a design by Sir Thomas Slade, Surveyor to the Navy. Building progressed at a leisurely pace and she was not floated up until May 7th 1765: The years spent weathering in frame before launch undoubtedly contributed to her longevity. Victory had been built at a cost of £63,176 and had used up over 2000 Oak trees and 27 miles or rope in her construction.
Apparently built with oak tree wood.
I would suggest you go to the library and get some sort of historical record of this ship that may list suppliers for items used to build it.
This may give you some info.
How do you think this Adams is related to your family?
What is the surname that is linked with Adams and do you have a time frame?
