  • Notes 
    • Adam was one of the last surviving immigrants who came on the "Welcome" in 1682. In 1693 he sued Tomas Wynne, who died during the process. He had a survey of his land near Christiana Creek made on Oct. 31, 1719. He was called to testify on behalf of Lord Baltimore when the Maryland boundaries were being decided in court. At an estimated date of 1731, Adam stated that his age was 78 at the time and recalled questions pertaining to 1682, 1684 and 1685. He supposedly lived for 49 years in New Castle Co., (Del or MD) If his birthday of 1666 is correct, then the amount of time he had lived in Delaware or his birthdate is incorrect in his account to Lord Baltimore as these figures give us his estimated birthdate at 1653. (C-1210, 1428)
