Addeman, Richard

Birth Name Addeman, Richard 1a 2a
Also Known As Addyman, Richard 3a
Birth Name Addyman, Richard 4a
Birth Name Adderman, Richard 5a
Gender male


The Richard Addyman who lives in Pennsylvania in the 1850s was from England. That can only be the Richard Addeman who was a butcher in Sheffield in 1841 unless the Richard from Sheffield disappears around the same time as someone else takes the name Richard Addyman and travels to the USA.

The details on the naturalization declaration are not an exact match for Richard Addeman. The age is different by 9 years, and the arrival date of September 1840 is not compatible with a census entry in England for 1841. However, the arrival date was only declared in 1850.

Furthermore, the Richard who fathers Edward in Honesdale must surely be the same Richard who fathers Stephen in Honesdale several years later.
