John Chedzoy Adams was the illegitimate child of Mary Ann Adams and John Chedzoy Gait. He was born at North Curry and baptised on 24th September 1843. His mother did marry his father and the 1851 census shows that they used the Chedzoy name, although his 3 oldest siblings were baptised with the name Gait.

By 1861 John had left home. He married Mary Jane Kellett on 3rd May 1875 in Yorkshire. John and his family always used the name Adams. They had 5 children, John Thomas born 18th February 1876, Joseph born 17th November 1877, James born 17th July 1879, Elizabeth Ann born 23rd March 1881, all 4 were born in Yorkshire, Beatrice was born 29th June 1884 in Lancashire. Mary Jane died 20th July 1885. John took John Thomas, Joseph and Elizabeth Ann to Canada in 1887 or 1888, it is believed that James and Beatrice may have died.
