"Man, earthly, red. The families of Adam and Adamson, are descended from Duncan son of Alexander Adam, temp. Robert Bruce.
(The origin and signification of Scottish surnames. Clifford Stanley Sims, 1862)
"ADAM. Bardsley says that "six centuries ago
Adam probably ranked as second or third
favourite among boys' names throughout England.
In the north it attained a most remarkable
pre-eminence." It was also a popular name
in Scotland. Douglas (Baronage, p. 255)
absurdly says that a Duncan Adam, who lived
in the reign of Robert the Bruce, had four sons,
Robert, John, Reginald, and Duncan, and that
from them "all the Adams, Macadams,
Adamsons, and Adies in Scotland are descended,
which sufficiently appears from their carrying
the same figures in their armorial bearings.
Adam, sub-prior of Melrose became abbot of
Cupar, 1189 (Cupar-Angus, i, p. xlix). Adam
son of Adam was one of the witnesses to the
charter by William Bruce to Adam of Carlyle
of the lands of Kynemund, c. 1194-1214 (
(Annandalo, I, p. 2; Bain, i, 606), and he also
witnessed the resignation by Dunegal, son of
Udard of a carucate of land in Warmanbie
within the same period. Adam became abbot
of Newbattle in 1201 (Chron. Matt.), and
another Adam, a native of Lennox (Levenax),
was a monk of great sanctity (ibid.). Duncan
filius Ade occurs as witness in a charter gifting
the church of Wemyss to the Hospital of
Soltre, now Soutra in Midlothian, between
1200-1240 (Soltre, p. 14). Sir Ade, a Pope's
knight, was vicar of Inverkippe, 1329 (ER., i,
p. 209), Andrew Adam was one of the
representatives of Lanark in the obligation by the
burghs to pay part of the ransom of King
James i (APS., i, p. 517), and William, son of
Ade de Kydlaw, was a charter witness at Yester,
1374 (Yester, p. 26). Robert Adam (1728
81792), architect, and William Adam (1751
11839), politician, were two of the most
eminent of the name.
