John was named after his uncle Rev John Adey He attended Painswick Grammar School and was apprenticed to a tradesman in Painswick. He was taken to Painswick Independent Chapel by his mother. At age 20 he moved to Kingston-on-Thames and lived with a relative. In Kingston he began teacing in Sunday School, his first class consisting of chimney sweeps collected for the purpose, he also held prayer meetings in curious places such as a cow shed and Kingston Bridge. In 1836 he moved to London, started a business on his own account and attended Southwark Chapel where Rev John Adey was minister. Both John and his brother Daniel were deacons at the church and they established a Sunday School where in 1868 five hundred scholars met for instruction. The Sunday School produced 8 or 9 ministers, several teachers and missionaries. On one occassion Rev John Adey was unable to travel 20 miles to preach so he sent John. On 6th October 1850 he preached his first sermon at Kingswood Chapel, Bristol, he was invited back and on 31st March 1851 he began work as the minister in Bristol where he increased the congregation from 180 to 342. He was was one of the secretaries of the Bristol Auxiliary to the London Missionary Society, he was an advocate of the cause of total abstinence from intoxicating liquors and he was known as the childrens friend, there is a Sunday School Memorial to him in Arnos Vale. The 1868 Congregational Year Book has a lengthy obituary for John which also contains interesting information about the Adey Non Conformist background.
