    WARNER-HARRINGTON ANCESTRY

    Wm. S. Tilden in his HISTORY OF THE TOWN OF MEDFIELD MASSACHUSETTS speculated
    that Edward Adams may have married Lydia Rockwood.
    WARNER-HARRINGTON and BURKES LANDED FAMILIES lists
    Lydia Penniman, dau. of James and Lydia (Eliot) Penniman as wife of Edward
    Adams.

    PIONEERS OF MASSACHUSETTS by Charles H. Pope, 1900 says under Wight, Thomas

    Thomas, bro. of Henry, Dedham, propr. 18 (5) 1637, adm. chh with wife Alice 6
    (7) 1640; frm. Oct. 8, 1640; selectman. Rem. to Medfield. Ch. Samuel b. 5 (12)
    1639, Ephraim b. 27 (11) 1645.
    Will prob. 24 (2) 1674; mentions agreement made with his present wife before
    their marriage which is in the hands of Mr. John Eliot, her brother; beq. to
    sons Henry, Thomas, SAmuel and Ephraim, dau. Mary, wife of Thomas Ellis, and
    her dau. Juda. The widow Lydia made will 20 Dec 1673, prob. July 27, 1676; beq.
    to ch. of her former husband James Peniman, Samuel, Mary, Lydia Adams, Bethia
    Allin, Hannah Hall, Abigail Carie. Cousin Jacob Eliot and Theophilus Frary
    overseers; sons Samuel P. exec. Ephraim Wight was indebted to the estate when
    inv. was taken, a sum beq. in his father's will.

    The above seems to prove the identity of Edward's wife as having been Lydia
    Penniman, dau. of James and Lydia (Eliot) Penniman.
