The Adams Family

September 17th, 2018 · No Comments

Recent conversations about The Addams Family, a fictional household created by American cartoonist Charles Addams, reminded me that there is another family of the same name of far greater historical importance, the Adams family of North Staffordshire. Richard Adams, 1739 – 1811, was a master Potter and is of immense importance to the history of pottery making.

The Adams family and the families they married into were, in the most part, armigerous.
