About John Adams, of Hunting Creek

Came to the colonies in 1677


John Adams (the carpenter) was transported to Virginia in 1677 as a headright to George Brent probably at age 16-20, perhaps from Kent Island. This was probably a ploy by Brent to get more land, since bringing people as headrights from England gave him more land. John Adams is referred to as carpenter in several land deeds on Accokeek Run in Northumberland Co. John the carpenter and Thomas Norman bought and sold land to each other from 1802-1704 on Accokeek Run. Tobacco land becomes useless for tobacco after a few years planting. It requires burning to reinvigorate the land. Daniel, the eldest child, in 1690 took care of a young, Richard Tullos, with ties to his grand-uncle (?) Thomas Adams and Cloud Tullos (male indentured servant). Katherine Adams and John Adams sold their Northumberland Co land in 1702 to the Shirley family. This land was owned by Uncle Thomas Adams the bachelor in 1664.
