The Adventurers of Purse and Person was written to establish descents through the sixth generation of the approximate 150 individuals who can be identified as Adventurers of the Purse (Stockholders of the Virginia Company of London) who came to Virginia between 1607 and 1624/25 and had descendants or who did not come to Virginia within that period but whose grandchildren were residents thee or Adventurers of Person (immigrants of Virginia) who left descendants.

Please note that there is no mention of a wife of Robert Adams listed in the muster.  In the Muster of Captain Raph Hamor an Ann Addams is listed as a Maid servant.  They were in James City.  Could it be possible that she was an indentured servant.  I found another book Virginia Emigrants and Adventurers by Martha W. McCartney which may give me more information.  That is another trip to the library.

Tips for the Genealogist

My advice is to read, read and read some more.  There is a wealth of books out there with information for the genealogist.

  1. Most unlikely that the Ann Addams mentioned above was Robert's wife, or any man's wife, since indentured servants were forbidden to marry (hence the near innumerable bastardy cases brought before the early county courts). It was not at all uncommon for a man to buy the indenture of a woman he wished to marry, but marriage was disallowed between servants or between freed persons and servants.
