"From The Complete Peerage, 2nd revised edition, by G.E. Cokayne & Vicary Gibbs, vol 1, p. 181, the line of John ap Adam (Ap-Adam-18) ends with his great grandson John ap Adam (Ap_Adam-30) who is mentioned with his wife Margaret (surname unknown) in 1414-1415. This John died without any issue 20 November 1424, making John Huntley, the son of his sister Elizabeth his heir.

"There is no mention of Clara Powell or two sons William and Roger, as is mentioned in the Wikitree profile, so it would seem that they are either false or members of a different line that has been tacked on to the ap Adam line."[1]

A possible connection to Powells can be found in some pedigrees which state that John's heir, his sister's son John Huntley, had a daughter named Mary, who married Thomas Parker of Monmouthshire, from whom descends the Powells of Llanllowell, near Uske in Monmouthshire.[2]

Where to separate Henry Adams from the forged Ap Adams genealogy?

I just created Ap Adam-56 for better or worse, but find it difficult to feel comfortable about merging with this profile given the completely different parents and doubts expressed by Linda Plummer below.

Ap Adam-42 and Ap Adam-30 appear to represent the same person because: Same parents and siblings.
