TTHE information given in the ' D.N.B.'
•*• concerning George Adams the elder, and
hie two sons George and Dudley, is doubtless
known to your enquirer. The following
notes, collected from various other sources,
may supplement those particulars.
Advertisements which appeared in the
London Daily Advertiser and London Evening Post from 1735 onwards give George
Adams's address as " a t Tycho Brahe's
Head, Fleet Street." Until the early years
of the nineteenth century the business still
flourished under this sign. On an exceptionally large (16 ins. x 10 ins.) and very
finely engraved trade-card in my collection,
which was issued by Dudley Adams, there is
Son of George Adams Senr. long deceased
and Brother to the late George Adams at No.
60 Fleet Street, London, where the above business has been carried on for nearly a Century.
Georgo Adams, the younger, died in 1795,
and presumably this card was issued shortly
after his death, though from the style of the
engraving and some of the scientific instruments depicted it was probably originally
issued by George Adams the elder somewhere
about 1760; the wording having been subsequently amended by his successors.
An advertisement inserted in the Daily
Advertiser 28 Oct. 1772 announced that
"Ann & George Adams, mathematical instrument makers to His Majesty, at Tycho
Brahe's Head, No. 60 Fleet Street, carry
on the business of the late Mr. Adams."
From this it would appear that George
Adams, senior, did not die in 1773 as stated
in the ' D.N.B.' Ann was probably his
widow and George was his elder son.
Subsequent to the death of George Adams
the younger his widow Hannah advertised
that she was quitting her house and selling
off the stock (The Courier, 1 April 1796, and
St. James' Chronicle, 12 April 1796).
For some years before Dudley Adams took
over tho Fleet Street shop on the death of
his brother George, he was in business at
No. 53, Charing Cross, as we find that he
was already established there in 1789. The
London Directory 1817 shows that he -was
still occupying No. 60, Fleet Street at that
