Note
Richard John Adey was sometimes known as John Richard Adey. At the time of the 1851 census Richard John Adey (aged 21, landowner from Gloucester) was a visitor in a house in Dymock. At the time of the 1871 census Richard whose occupation is given as farmer was living Moor Villa with his wife Hester and Eliza Bennett. The 1873 Return of Property Owners for the County of Gloucestershire shows that Richard owned over 62 acres of land in the county worth an annual rent of over £128. At the time of the 1881 census he lived in Moor Villa with his wife and Eliza Bennett a 37 year old general domestic servant. His occupation is given as retired farmer. Moor Villa was originally built around 1750, it was later called "Moorlands". At some time a fire destroyed the central part of the house which was rebuilt. The house was sold again in the early 2000s and was then renamed Edge Lane House. At the time of the 1891 census Richard, retired farmer is shown living with his wife and Eliza Bennett at Moor Villa. According to page 244 of The Painswick Register 1890-1899 John Richard Adey died on 20th May 1896 at his residence Moor Villa, the Edge, where it is believed he had lived more than 20 years. He had previously lived at Highfold Farm (orginally Ifold Farm), which belonged to him, and which for some years he kept in hand. For many years he filled the office of Vicar's Churchwarden at the Edge, and he was on several occasions elected as one of the Painswick Way Wardens. These offices he was obliged to relinquish on account of ill health, and during the last two years he was confined to his house by paralysis. After long suffering, patiently borne, he died, respected by many, at the age of 67 years.
