A D A M S of L A N E A S T

Within the Parish of Lanest dwelt my Adams or Addams family. Laneast, not listed on map shown, would be just north of Altarnun, west of Launceston and east of Camelford

John Adams/Addams and English Chubb/Glubb/Crabb

My 6th Great Grandfather was John Adams who married English Chubb on the 20th of June 1698. They are known to have had two children as follows:

 John Adams and Joan Hill

My 5th Great Grandfather was John Adams, Yeoman of Laneast. He married 1st Joan/Jone ?Hill/Jenkin? on the 1st of May 1738 at St. Gluvias (Note: Some make this Jone Hill who married a John Adams at Tremaine, 14 May 1739, this would mean that they married after their daughter English Adams was christened at Laneast on 16 March 1739. There is a Nicholas Hill will which supports this connection.) by whom he had 6 known children as follows:

John Adams and Sarah Bath

Joan, John's first wife died and was buried on the 21st of April, 1750. This John Adams then remarried my 5th Great Grandmother Sarah Bath of Egloskerry on the 7th of April 1752 at Laneast. They had four known children as follows:

This John Adams, my 5th Great Grandfather, wrote his will in 1801. This will was proved and dated in 1803, the same year in which he was buried. The will of John Adams is what cements this family unit together by those who are listed there in. For example and amongst others, John lists his daughter Elizabeth Vosper of the Parish of Lewannick, his daughter Sarah Hender of the Parish of Altarnun, his sons John and William Adams, and his idiote daughter Christian Adams. This John Adams, my 5th Great Grandfather, was buried at Laneast on the 4th of February, 1803.
