Hudd Adams Adamson family

My 3rd great grandfather John Adams was in Cardiff prison for the 1851 census, on the 1861 census he had changed the family name to Adamson, then 1871 back to Adams.  It has now come to light that he was born John Hudd, one of his daughters uses all three names when she marries.  Does anyone have any information about this family.  Thank you

Thanks for the reply.  My family Adams (this is the most used family name) lived in Adam street (it is said it was named after Moses Adams who built them) Tyllery Street and Bishop Street.  When Moses Snr. died his  funeral went from The Prince of Wales, which his son owned or ran.

Moses Adams also kept The Forge Hammer as well as The Prince of Wales.
Seen a John Adams but that was 1907 Gaen Street.

List of graves purchased at Blaenau Gwent Baptist Chapel Yard.

Looking at the purchasers of graves list there are a few Adams, it is listed by who bought the grave, each one can hold up to 3 people. There are 4 child graves bought by Benjamin Adams of Abertillery in 1884, Moses Adams of Tillery St in 1891, William Adams of Tillery St in 1893, and Robert Adams of Penybont in 1892. Then Joseph Adams of Somerset St bought a grave for his wife in 1914, Owen Adams of Fair View bought one for himself in 1929, Mrs W Adams of Adam St bought one for her husband in 1921, Mrs J Adams also of Adam St bought one for her husband in 1919, Lewis Adams of Arkwright Terrace bought for a child in 1900, John Adams of Gaen St bought for his son in 1907, Thomas Adams of Roberts Row bought for his son in 1920, F Adams of Roseberry St bought for a child in 1916 and E S Adams of Bl Gwent bought for a child in 1915.

Hudd Adams Adamson family

Hi,   Just had a quick look Moses Adams had twin sons 1891, Samuel, my grandfather and Moses who died at birth or just after.  Moses snr.'s wife Mary Ann Lewis, ran off with an ex lodger, Arthur James, they  married, although she was still married to Moses, when caught they  were both given 18 months hard labour.  A couple of years ago I revisited Abertillery and visited St Illtyd church, Moses snr. is buried there, but it was very overgrown, are the records for the grave purchases you mention close to this church, I remember going past a cemetery on a lower road when we were looking for St Illtyd church.  Do you know where in Abertillery The prince of Wales and the Forge Hammer were situated, and what is there now.  If you do come across any more information I would be very glad to here it.
Thank you  
Wendy

Tredegar library are very accomadating on grave purchases.
Blaenau Gwent Baptist Chapel Yard where the previous were listed is a disgrace, graves flattened and litter everywhere. There's at least a dozen poor souls from The Great War buried up there.
Knew the bigamy story, it was covered in The Gwent Family History Magazine , not sure if it was number issue 93 or 106 though.
The Forge Hammer was in Vivian Street closed 1902, The Prince of Wales was in High Street closed late 60's.

I think virtually the whole Adams family moved together to Cross Keys Risca, they are there on the 1911 Census.  I can't find much about John, born Hudd, was called Adamson Hudd when he married Ann Sims, and then Adams 1841 1851 census, Adamson 1861 census then back to Adams.  His eldest daughter used all thee surnames when she married , his son George used Adams and Adamson.  The rest of Johns family seem to have only used the name Hudd.  I have just had an email from Canada, apparently Moses Adams (the good one) had the opportunity to build a brewery which would have been very profitable for him, but he refused as he was against drinking.  She also says he built and donated a church to Abertillery.

I've a copy of the 1843 ER only Adams on there  is Francis, no Hudd and no Adamson.
Plenty more ER books before they moved away however.
Regards Moses Adams he built the Ebenezeer School Rooms in 1905 and a year later the Primitive Methodist Church in Newall Street. He also built another in Aberbeeg before moving away.
He returned to Abertillery in 1926 to attend celebrations at the Primitive Methodist Chapel in Somerset Street.
Seen the fees he had for those three he built, maybe he waivered one of them ?
stoob

Hudd Adams Adamson Family

Don't know if you have newspaper access Wendy, but there was an article and pictures of the opening of the Ebenezer School Rooms in the Cardiff Times dated 09 September 1905, and Moses did build them.

Adams family

Hi Bryan, Thank you, I have seen the newspaper report and sketch about the Ebenezer Baptist Chapel, is it still there, or been pulled down?
stoob

Hudd Adams Adamson Family

Still there, I'll find you a picture mines to dated and blurred.
OK just looking at the third Abertillery book and it says that in 1877 a Moses Thomas mortgaged his own home for The Ebenezer to be built.
So either there's a misprint with the surname in this book or your friend is mistaken.
I'll have a look in the Ebenezer book down the library next week.

She didn't say it was the Ebenezer, and I had heard he was involved with quite a few churches, chapels and community buildings.  Thank you for the other information.

Thank you once more, I have just printed off the information.  Did you get it from the electoral roll records.  Will now compare the records to what I have.  I have always been very interested in the Adams name, but must confess the Hudd name intrigues me.
stoob

Hudd Adams Adamson Family

Yes electoral registers, few ladies on there pre 1922 unless they were property owners.
Adam Street is not in the 1905 book, but it's in 1907 so erected in between.

1960 Electoral Register,

Samuel Hudd, 62 Meadow Street, Llanhilleth.
wendyhudson

Hudd Adams Adamson family

Hi, Thanks for that.  We were told that family (with a different name lived in the next valley) would that fit with Llanhilleth.
stoob

Hudd Adams Adamson Family

Coming down the valley we have Abertillery, Six Bells, Aberbeeg and then Llanhilleth.
In 1960 Samuel Hudd was living with Percy and Annie Prosser in Meadow Street.

Hudd Adams family

Hi Brian, have been working hard on the Hudd family and have made a connection with Alfred Hudd, 25 Adam Street 1911 census, I think he was the cousin of the older Moses Adams.  Do you have any idea how old Samuel Hudd, 62 Meadow Street, Llanhilleth is, and I will see if I can work back from him.  Wendy

Complicated the Hudd side Wendy....Samuel Hudd and Percy Prosser were brothers according to Percy's son Michael.
Believe he told me Samuel is living in Bristol and his sons Sam and Roy lived in Bristol and Hereford. He also had a daughter working at St. Woolos hospital at one time.
Got a phone number for Percy's son Mike and he's on facebook.
stoob

Hudd Adams Adamson Family

Believe Percy Prosser married Annie Caroline Hudd in 1925, both were from Llanhilleth and Annie was 24 years of age.
Believe her father was Frederick Charles Hudd.
