Adams Genealogy & History

Adams is a patronymic name meaning "son of Adam". Its Aramaic (biblical) origin refers to the first man, Adam, probably derived from the word for red earth, adama. The rise in name popularity in medieval times was concurrent with biblical plays and pageants;  the actors subsequently were referred to as Adams. In ancient Adams family history, Adam Audley was a knight under William the Conqueror in 1066. Adams is also common in Germany and Holland, as well as European variations: Scottish MacAdams, Czech Adamic, Polish Adamiak, Spanish Adanez, Greek Adamides and Italian D'Adamo. Second president John Adams is famous in American Adams genealogy.
