Origin of the Name Adam

The origin of the name Adam was found in the archives. Variants of Adam include Adames, Adams and Adamson. This is a baptismal name meaning 'the son of Adam', a very old personal name taken originally from the Bible. This name is of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a John fil Adam who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls ' in the year 1273 and a Johannes Adamson, who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax', of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379. In Ireland a branch of the Barrys of Rathcormac adopted this surname from the Christian name of their ancestor. It was found in the Carew papers as Barry alias MacAdam. In Scotland Adam son of Adam was a witness to the charter by William Bruce to Adam of Carlyle of the lands of Kynemund, 1194-1214.
The Adam coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Adam descendants.
