_______________

In 1881 she and Emma Sparrow (see above in 1861 and 1871) were in a dewlling, possibly within a boarding house, in Tormoham with Torquay, Devon; she called herself a Peers daughter and was down as born in Lilford, Northamptonshire in 1807.
_______________

Her children from the above censuses (first three from 1851, fourth from 1861):

First name(s) Last name Relationship Marital status Gender Age Birth year Occupation Birth place

Henry R Adams Son Unmarried Male 17 1834 Scholar London, Middlesex
Fanny N Adams Daughter Unmarried Female 4 1847 Infant Wimbledon, Surrey
Richard Adams Son Unmarried Male 13 1838 Scholar Bath, Somerset

Charles V Adams Son Unmarried Male 25 1836 Curate Of Shire St Geo Han Sq, London

Additionally in In 1881 there was an Ernest Powys Adams at Marlborough school, aged 15 and born at North Curry, Somerset. Might this be a son of Henry R born in 1834 or Charles V born in 1835?

While I have found Charles vernon Adams on several records, I cannot find either Henry R or Fanny N or Richard on any identifiable records.

Notes for Richard Leonard & Elizabeth Atherton (Family)
I had their marriage down as 15 Feb 1828 but this is unbelievable.

Yet here is the notice in the Stamford mercury of Fri 22nd of Feb 1828, on p. 4:

“MARRIED: The Rev L Adams, of Grosvenor Place to the Hon Eliza Atherton Powys, fourth daughter of the late Lord Lilford.”
