Maria  1
born circa 1790, (but not in Kent) 2
died September 1857 3
buried 10 September 1857, King William's Town 4
At the time of the 1841 census she was living in Stembrook, St. Mary's
parish, Dover with her three sons Henry, Thomas and John.

We have no maiden name for her. She was a widow when she married
Henry Adkins and the marriage register at Ash gives her name as
Maria Gillam.

It seems likely to me, even though I have no absolute proof, that she is
the same person as the Maria Olliver who married John Gilham
at Deal in 1811, more especially since her son, John Gillam, also lived in
King William's Town, and, in additon, he was a witness at the baptism of
Sidney Charles Adkins, son of Benjamin and Charlotte Adkins, and
they in turn were sponsors at the baptism of George Charles Gillam.
Furthermore the baptismal sponsors of Benjamin John Adkins, son of
Henry and Sarah Adkins, were a George Gillam and an Elizabeth Gillam.
