This is Birth Registration of Grace Amelia:
Name: Mother's Maiden Surname:
ADAMS, GRACE AMELIA JOHNSON
GRO Reference: 1903 J Quarter in PONTYPRIDD Volume 11A Page 696

This tells us that her Mother's Maiden name is Johnson.

This is the marriage of her parents:
Marriages Sep 1899
ADAMS Tom Hedley Pontypridd 11a 966
Johnson Sarah Florence Pontypridd 11a 966

Sarah died in 1911:
Deaths Jun 1911
Adams Sarah F 30 Pontypridd 11a 308

and Tom Hedley married again in 1914:
Marriages Mar 1914
ADAMS Tom H Webb Monmouth 11a 51
Webb Kate Adams Monmouth 11a 51

The marriage took place in Coleford Baptist Church and details can be found in the Parish Records on this site.

This is Tom and Kate in the 1939 Register:
The Moriners Shortstanding, Coleford, West Dean R.D., Gloucestershire, England

Both are buried in the New Churchyard at Christchurch

ADAMS, Tom Hedley 1958 Jul 19 age 79

This is Tom's birth registration:
ADAMS, TOM HEDLEY JONES
GRO Reference: 1879 J Quarter in MONMOUTH Volume 11A Page 28

His marriage to Kate Webb informs us that his father was William Adams.
This appears to be the marriage of his parents:
Groom Surname Groom Forename Bride Surname Bride Forename District Parish Building Year Register Entry
ADAMS William JONES Thirsa Forest of Dean Monmouth Register Office 1867 6 54

Here are entries from 1881 and 1891 Census:

1881 Census

Household Members
Members that resided in the household at the time of the census.

Louisa Adams Daughter - Female 7 1884 Scholar West Dean, Gloucestershire, England
Frank Adams Son - Male 1 1890 - West Dean, Gloucestershire, England

Finally the marriage entry states:
"The groom is the second son and the bride the eldest daughter" whereas the 1881 Census tells us that he was the fourth son. However at the time of the marriage Tom Hedley was the Second Surviving son.

This is from a Memorial Inscription in Christchurch Churchyard:
"In loving memory of the children of William & Thirza Adams Edwin Charles died Feb 3 1878 aged 5 months Miriam Jane died Jan 22 1880 aged 9 months Louis Henry died Jan 9 1884 aged 16 months Mary Ada died Jan 19 1884 aged 8 years James John died Aug 3 1885 and William George died 15 Dec 1890 aged 22 years"

Thanks Mike for this very thorough and comprehensive detail, Edward carpenter who married Grace Amelia Adams, the daughter of Tom Hedley Adams is a completely different person to the Tom Adams in my tree I will now continue by searching for any other children Edward and Grace had. My son in laws father is John who is Edwards son. After a 10yr break because of work commitments I have only just come back on this site already my interests have been restored. Thankyou Derrick, previously known as rangerone.

Sorry Mike, I did not explain very well.
I now know that Tom Hedley Adams is the father of Grace Amelia. Edward and Amelia had a son called John. Thankyou for additional information about a son called Edward, received in your email.
I then confused things by mentioning another Tom this one is not the same one and is not
connected to the Carpenter tree. Tom Adams is connected to my Teague tree I was trying to
confirm that they are, different people and you have done that for me," Thankyou". I think that Grace Amelia must of lived with another relative during her childhood days, either on the Adams or Johnson side. Thankyou Derrick.

Thanks so much for letting me know about photos, I've still got so much to learn from and about on this site. To be totally honest I haven't been able to log on properly yet I have had 3 different passwords that I have been sent and it won't accept any so I go onto mail and use the link.

Miriam Lehmann submitted the images in 2010 and at the time the site was being administered by the late David Watkins and unfortunately on his death in 2012 we were only able to gain access to the website server. It was also the policy to close accounts of those who had not logged in for 2 years or more and sadly any contact information for Miriam is lost.
We have looked on Ancestry and see that there are a number of people registered in the name of Miriam Lehmann but we would not know which one. We also noted that there is an Adams Family Tree with some family photographs which may be of interest to you. The Tree can be found at https://www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/tree/34696829/

Thankyou Admin, I have clicked on the link but I just get a blank page apart from a small image of a page looking unhappy. Do I need to be an online ancestry subscriber to for this link to work?

You'll need to open the link in a new browser tab (right click - open in new tab) but, yes, you'll need to have an Ancestry account to view it.

Thanks Peter for information. I'm still getting use to using this site again at the moment, once I get a bit more experienced I will probably do that.
