GEORGE ADAMS, MASSACHUSETTS (c1620-1696)

There has been a great deal of speculation at to the origins of George ADAMS of Watertown but nothing concrete has been proven. The earliest record of George ADAMS is in 1645 when he married Frances TAYLOR the daughter of Richard and Ann TAYLOR of Cambridge, MA. Whether this is the actual year of their marriage or the date it was recorded in the records is uncertain. However, the birth of their first child John on October 16, 1645 is recorded in Watertown where George was known as a glover and a trader. That same year he received 20 acres for his home lot, known as -€œGeorge Hill-€ supposedly named for him.

In May, 1653 he was found guilty of selling firearms and -€œstrong waters-€ to the Indians and was consequently -€œseverley whipt-€ in Boston and discharged to the prison. In January of the following year, he was granted 4 acres in Watertown where he resided until November 1664 when he sold his house and moved back to Lancaster. The Early Town Records of Watertown show George Adams living -€œin need-€ with five children.

In 1670, George laid claim to his property in Lancaster that was forfeited due to his absence and inaction and in January of 1671 he was granted 60 acres by the General Court. During this same time, he petitioned the General Court for confirmation of his claim to 200 acres of land that he had received from the Sachem Shoniow several years earlier. It was not until May of 1675, however, that his request was granted.

During King Philip-€™s War, 1675-76, Lancaster was ravaged by the Indians and after the second attack in February of 1676 the town was abandoned. At that time, George is shown as serving in Captain Joseph SILL-€™s Company. He apparently did not return to Lancaster but instead settled again in Watertown. He appears on the 1684 list of property owners of Lancaster as living out of town. In 1692, he is shown living in Cambridge Farms, which is now Lexington, where he was taxed for the ministry.

On October 16, 1696, George accidentally met his death -€œby a fall of a rock-€ in Watertown and on the 28th his widow, Frances ADAMS, was appointed administratrix of his estate. According to the Probate Records, his estate was valued 60 pounds, 13s. 8d. including 260 acres of land in Lancaster valued at 50 pounds.

The 200 acre tract of land given to George by the Shoinow Sachem remained in the family until 1715. The deeds recorded at that time and subsequently later reflect a good deal of information regarding the children of George and Frances ADAMS. On May 24, 1715, George ADAMS and Mary ADAMS, spinster, of Lexington -€œson and daughter of George ADAMS formerly of Lancaster, glover dec.d-€ sold their rights to their older brother John of Colchester, CT who in turn deeded this and his share of the land to Francis FULLAM. Eight years later on November 7, 1723, George-€™s son Samuel of Windsor, CT and his grandson Joseph of Simsbury, the eldest surviving son of Daniel, deeded their remaining two shares to Mr. FULLAM.
