Biography

Adam Wheeler, the son of John Wheeler and Agnes (Yeoman) Wheeler, was baptized at St. Edmunds' in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England on December 5, 1616.[1][2][3]

Adam appears to have remained in England with his older brothers Edward and John when his parents and younger siblings emigrated to New England about 1639.[4]

Adam married a woman whose name is unknown, probably in or near Salisbury, England sometime about 1642. Adam and his wife had the following children (and perhaps others):

  1. Robert, bpt. June 25, 1643 at St. Edmunds, Salisbury, England,[5] m. about 1667 Ann __________,[6] had children baptized at St. Thomas', Salisbury, England from 1668[7] to 1678[8]

The baptismal record for Robert lists both the surname "Wheeler" and the patronymic "Domer," which came from his great grandfather Dominicke Wheeler.

There are records of the baptism at St. Edmund's and St. Thomas' in Salisbury of children of an Adam Wheeler or Domer in 1667[9] and 1670.[10] These records could relate to children of this profile's Adam by a second wife. However, it is more likely that they relate to children of a son or nephew named Adam, who was probably buried in Salisbury in 1712.[11]

Adam was living (or at least believed by his father to be living) in Salisbury, England in March 1668 when his father made a bequest to him in his will.[12] He was probably the Adam Wheeler who was buried in Salisbury, England on September 1, 1699.[13]
