Notes for Thomas ADKINS

Thomas's father, Thomas b.1726, left in his Will a sum to this Thomas's son John. However, we have found no evidence of this son.

Thomas ADKINS's life and Will. [95]

The first picture is of Thomas ADKINS's signature and clearly shows that he was literate and fluent in his writing. It was appended to his Indenture to Edward Connard and dated 12th November 1778, when Thomas was 16 years old.

The picture 'Mr T Adkins' is of a document address, below it is the letter, posted to Thomas ADKINS by Thomas FISHER. It seems incredible today that one could address a letter to an individual in just 'Birmingham'! [Webmaster]

Thomas FISHER's letter reads:

Dear Coz - Weston Sept 19 1801
My dear Bro Mr Caleb Adkins is
dead your Brother desires his love
to you & hopes you will come to
his House tomorrow to attend your
Unkle Calebs Funeral next Monday
afternoon. Death Reighns may wee
his relations fly to Jesus who can save
from Eternal Death I am your
Greeving Unkle
Thos Fisher
