Charles Adney (Adeney) or John Charles Adney (Adeney)
I am searching for information regarding the father of Thomas Adney who was born about 1740 on King's Square (Soho Square)in Clerkenwell Parish, Middlesex Co. Thomas was known to have come to America about 1759-1760. It is believed that "Charles" or "John Charles", Thomas's father, was born in Rowton and married an Ann Hudson. "Charles" supposedly had a farm between Clerkenwell and Islington where he also raised livestock; he reportedly was a ship builder as well as a farmer. The story has been told that he was robbed and murdered on his way home to Clerkenwell from the Angel(Angell)Inn near or in Islington by an old college mate; he may have died 28 August 1771. Unfortunately, for all of the stories that have been passed down, I am finding no strong factual data (historical records, court records, etc.) regarding the origin or existence of this family. Any thread of information would be greatly appreciated.
