Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Charlton Mackrell, Somersetshire, England

The parish consists of two villages, Charlton Mackrell and Charlton Adam, together known as "The Charltons". The marriage of Henry Adams and Edith Squire took place inside Charlton Mackrell Church. Henry Adams was born in Barton St David in 1583, but the Adams family is also thought to have had earlier connections with Charlton Adam. Edith Squire was one of the daughters of Henry Squire, the son of a Rector of Charlton Mackrell. Edith and her husband Henry Adams lived here with their children before emigrating to America in, probably, 1638. --CM Research & The Charltons Historical Society
