I have been researching the Adams Family History in Newfoundland, Canada for the past 15 to 20 years and have run up against a wall wherein I have traced the family name back to a Thomas Addams who moved to Bonivista, Newfoundland, Canada in the early 1700's. He died there in 1729. What we do know is that he was 29 years old when he died and he was from Frampton, Dorset, England. He died in 1729. This is where the line gets a wee bit foggy as I am having trouble finding any connection to this town and its inhabitants and if the family name of Adams/Addams is still in existance there. If there is anyone out there who is a descendent of this man or is from this area of Dorset that can enlighten me in this matter, I would greatly appreciate it. I am hoping to visit in the next year and I would like to make this a part of my trip. Thamk you for your assistance Cheers
