ARTHUR MARTIN ADAMS (1875 - ??) and KATE E MANTON
Arthur Martin Adams, the first child of Naomi Martin
and Newman Adams, was christened on the 7 November 1875 at New Duston.
After his marriage to Kate E Manton on the 10th March 1900 at St.
Sepulchre Church, Northampton they later lived in Ireland for about 30
years. Apparently the parents refused to attend the wedding. He (they?)
changed religion to Roman Catholic . He was a talented pianist and skilled
shop fitter and cabinet maker. There were three children, Marie Adams,
Bernard Dominic Martin Adams and Joan Adams.
From information received : "Arthur Martin Adams was
the first son of Naomi Martin and Newman Adams. As a family we are aware
of some conflicting information re Naomi and her family of birth. My
mother was a very staunch Roman Catholic. Her story was that Naomi was one
of 13 /15 children and that as they lived in a village with no Catholic
Church, Naomi's parents sent their children to the local C of E church
instead. When my grandfather (Arthur Martin Adams) converted to
Catholicism, my mother believed it was like a sort of homecoming. However,
I don't think that there is much truth in that, as I am sure my sister has
found that the children were all, in fact, christened in the local church.
My grandfather's conversion is an unknown reason.
Arthur Martin Adams was born in September 1875 and
died on Candlemas Day, 2nd February 1961 in Northampton. I am not sure
what he died of but it may have been prostate or bladder related. I only
met him a couple of times. Once was on a visit to Northampton, where he
still lived in Allen Road. My mother had been told that he had had a fall
and all I remember is travelling on the train from London to a small
terraced house, a bit dark and gloomy at the back, where the 'scullery'
was and an old man, wearing long johns (underpants that stretched down to
his ankles). He pulled those up from the ankle so that we could see the
long gashes he had sustained on his pale and bony legs.
The other time was when he came and stayed with us
in Ealing for a few days one summer. I remember going shopping with him to
buy him a new panama hat; seeing with fascination that he had a lot of
hairs in his ears; listening to him playing the piano - his favourite hymn
was 'Jesu, joy of man's desiring'. Yes, he was a talented pianist and
organist. He could also sketch extremely well. He used to send my mother,
Joan, a copy of the Northampton Times, with one of those brown paper
wraparounds that you could use to send the papers in. He would always draw
a picture or caricature inside that, usually in pen and ink. He was
Apparently Kate died after being scratched by a cat
in 1923 - she was dressmaker
MARIE ADAMS (9 Nov 1902 - 17 May 1980), married Sam Harpham on 1st June 1935 at Northampton, their were two children Josie and Martin..
From information received:
Marie Agnes Adams was born on 9th November 1902. She was a dab hand at multitasking. I only remember meeting her once when she came on a visit. What I do remember is that she smoked. And that she could sit and hold a conversation, knit, do a crossword and smoke all at the same time. She had a good head for figures. Marie died on 17th May 1980 just two days before the birth of our first child, Lucy. She had been poorly for many years with undiagnosed diabetes. She was almost blind before it was diagnosed. Eventually, she was taken into hospital and was due to have both feet amputated. I feel it was a blessing that she died before they had to do this.
BERNARD DOMINIC MARTIN ADAMS (1900 - 1970) and HYLDA ROSE
Bernard Dominic, born on the 15 June 1900, the
second child, married Hylda Rose at the Catholic Church, Northampton in
1922 and re-married on the 2nd April 1923 at Christ Church, Northampton

on the 22 November 1970. There were two children, Rosemary Adams and
Martin Macritchie Adams
