      Henry Adams was born about 1583 at Barton, St. David, Somersetshire, England. He was the son of John Adams and Agnes Stone. Henry married Edith Squire, daughter of Henry Squire. He died on Saturday, 6 October 1646 at Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts, at age 63 years, 8 months and 15 days.

      Henry came to America from England about 1634 with his wife,eight sons, and one daughter, and settled at Mount Wollaston (subsequently named Braintree now Quincy), Massachusetts. Here on February 24, 1639-1640, the town of Boston granted him forty acres of land for the ten persons then composing his family, and he continued there until his death.

      The inscription placed upon the column erected to his memory by his great- great- grandson, John Adams, second President of The United States, reads as follows: "In memory of Henry Adams who took his flight from the Dragon persecution in Devonshire, England and alighted with eight sons, near Mount Wollaston. One of the sons returned to England, and after taking time to explore the country, four removed to Medfield and the neighboring towns; two to Chelmsford. One only, Joseph, who lies here at his left hand, remained here, who was an original proprietor in the township of Braintree, incorporated in 1639. This stone and several others have been placed in this yard, by a great-great grandson, from a veneration of the Piety, humility, simplicity, prudence, patience, temperance, frugality, industry and perseverance, of his Ancestors, in hopes of Recommending an imitation of their virtues to their posterity. ... Erected December, 1823."
