Trying to find Lamb

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Looking for relations of mygreat great grandmother Ann Lamb. I do not know her husbands name or her date of birth although I imagine it was about 1835. Her maiden name was Adams and she had a sister Phoebe who married a Mathew Wilkes Leech in 1860 in Birmingham. Their father's name was Wiiliam Benjamin Thomas Adams and he was an organ builder. Ann had a child Matilda who 'married ' my great grandfather Albert Chambers. Phoebe later married a Frank Krinks and they lived in th Erdington area of Birmingham. I can find no trace of the marriage of Albert and Matilda but they were living in Icknield Street Birmingham in 1881. I do not know where the Adams' originated from. Any info would be gratefully received.
