  • Notes 
    • email from Eleanor Adams 7/26/98.
      Edward was representative of Medfield to the General Court in 1689, 1692 and 1702

      From a file by Scott L. Robinson
      Discrepancies: There are some discrepancies regarding the birth date of Edward however I'm convinced that April 19, 1629 was the date of his baptism. This is shown by three sources who say this is proven by the original/primary record. These sources are "Henry Adams of Somersetshire, England and Braintree, Mass. His English Ancestry and Some of His Descendants" by Edward Dean Adams, "Immigrants to America Before 1750", by Frederick A. Virkus, and researcher Wilma Fleming Haynes. "A Genealogical History of Henry Adams, of Braintree, Mass., and his Descendants Also JohnAdams of Cambridge, Mass., 1632-1897" by Andrew N. Adams shows the birth year as 1630. Linda Moss shows this birth as April 19, 1629. [9]
