Note on Husband: Edward ADAMS

The family is at 104 High Street, Crediton, roughly on the site of today's bookshop. Edward took over the business from his father. His elder brother John married my cousin Elizabeth Berry and moved to Crewkerne, where he either took over a business or started one there.
