Text: Vol. 11, pp. 53-60 (Jan 1857) "Descendants of Robert Adams" Abbrev: EA (Essex Antiquarian) Title: The ESSEX ANTIQUARIAN

Edited by Sidney Perley and George Francis Dow, The Essex Antiquarian

The Essex Antiquarian was published from 1897 to 1909 by Sidney Perley and George Francis Dow, both noted Essex County Genealogists and Historians. The purpose and accomplishments of the Antiquarian are best described in the words of Perley and Dow, as published in the final edition Vol. 13, No. 4, October 1909:

"The Essex Antiquarian was purposed to fill a want. It was designed to be a leader in scientific historical research; and to present copies or abstracts of records and compilations in an exhaustive and systematic manner, so that as far as the publication extended further investigation along those lines would be needless. Repeated examinations of records tend to their destruction, and thousands of dollars have been spent locally upon the same records for the same purpose by various persons who were ignorant of costly examinations made by others. This purpose, if prosecuted, would preserve the records and make further expenditure of money and labor unnecessary. This has been the particular reason of the appearance of the genealogies in alphabetical order, the gravestone inscriptions, abstracts of the Salem and Ipswich quarterly court records and files, old Norfolk county records, all wills in the order of their probate, Essex Gazette notes, abstracts of titles to land, etc., as shown in Salem, Haverhill, Ipswich and Marblehead in 1700, and in Georgetown and Topsfield in 1800. During the thirteen years of its existence there have been published in The Essex Antiquarian genealogies of all families from Abbe to Brown; all gravestone inscriptions dated prior to the year 1800 in Amesbury, Andover, Beverly, Boxford, Bradford, Danvers, Essex, Georgetown, Gloucester, Groveland, Hamilton, Haverhill and Ipswich; all wills proved in the county prior to June, 1666; the record of the Essex County Revolutionary soldiers and sailors alphabetically to Brown; abstracts of the old Norfolk records to 1675; Salem and Ipswich quarterly court records and files to 1659; and abstracts of all records in the first ten volumes of the Suffolk county registry of deeds relating to Essex county persons and property, where parties resided or property was located in Essex county, covering the period prior to 1678."

Adams-15214 and Adams-5586 appear to represent the same person because: I believe these profiles represent the same person. Although the correct death date needs to be determined.

Cheers, Susan

Adams-15214 and Adams-338 are not ready to be merged because: Birth and death dates are off, source of birth is "personal knowledge" of the WikiTree member (odd). I'm being cautious.

David - other than your typo (should be Adams-6422), I agree with you. The Robert Adams, son of Richard and Margaret (Armager) Adams is the one who married Elizabeth Sharlon. Their son Robert married Eleanor Wilmot and emigrated to the MA colony, where they settled in Salem, then removed to Newbury. Their daughter Joanna married Launcelot Granger. Go ahead and change it back!!! I have a number of .pdf references for the family if anyone would like copies.

This Robert Adams profile (Adams-338), used to have the same birth, death, and marriage details as Robert Adams (Adams-6442). Both have father Richard Adams (Adams-337). I can see no record of Richard Adams having a son with the birth details listed in this profile, but there are records of a Richard Adams having a son with the same birth and death details as Adams-6442. Does anyone know why the birth,death and marriage details of Adams-338 were changed? Would anyone object if I changed them back?

I will okay this merge, with the following caveat: I do not consider the sources shown (Ancestry Trees) as valid proof of dates, etc. Hopefully one of us will be able to actually document the information shown.
