Adams (Kilbree)

A family descended from Edward Adams, a London merchant, who was granted over 2,000 acres in the barony of East Carbery, county Cork, in 1666. The Adams were situated at Kilbree from at least the mid 18th century and were closely connected to the Adams/Goold-Adams family of Jamesbrook. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Wallis Adams held land in the parishes of Drishane, barony of West Muskerry, Ballyoughtera and Cloyne, barony of Imokilly, county Cork. In the 1870s Wallis Adams of Janemount, Glanmire, owned 1,600 acres in that county.
