I am trying to trace the parents and grandparents of Thomas Adams, born +- 1773 in England. In 1791, at the age of 18 he enlisted with an Infantry Company of the East India Company and sailed for St Helena. In the EIC records he is noted as "a native of Middlesex". In the Muster Rolls he is noted as "a native of London" or "a native of Kingston"(Surrey).
It is thought he was buried on the island in 1828.

Hi Marcelle; I will take a look at my paperwork shortly for you to see if there's any Thomas Adams bn around that date in - sorry I didn't get back to you earlier; have moved house and and a lot of my paperwork is still unpacked etc. I see the IGI doesn't have many Thomas Adams for London/Surrey - for around that date. I quickly googled this and it looks quite interesting and you may be able to locate a burial registration for him from their archives:

If you knew of any of Thomas' siblings they may have all been born around the same area and timeframe and might provide clues further down the track on the census data for London/Surrey ie birthplace county in the 1841 census (even if the person was quite elderly) sometimes it's a clue albeit a small one - if you are lucky enough to have someone live into their 70's then the later Census will be more helpful. Good Luck and I'll get back to you soon. regards Karen

Dear Karen

It's my turn to apologise for not thanking you for your info. Truth be told, I've registered with so many sites that I tend to forget them all! Had to request my password for Familytree! By the way, I am from South Africa. My great-great grandfather was George Preston Adams (grandson of the Thomas Adams who went to st. Helena). George left St Helena c. 1835/6 and went to Knysna, on our Cape coast, as a boat builder. From an online text of the book, "The Who's Who of St Helena", I found his father, John, listed as a boat-builder during Napoleon's exile on the island!!

Thanks again. Am now having a look at Chobham Adams's.

Kind regards
