The Adams were pioneers in the Shoalhaven and Alstonville districts. Migrating from Donegal, Ireland in 1838 as agricultural labourers, they became successful independent farmers in NSW facing immense challenges, traumas and ultimately financial failure. The legacy of the pioneering generations shaped the lives of their descendants.
