Thomas Boylston Adams
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 15, 1772, USA
Death: Mar. 12, 1832, USA

Thomas Boylston Adams was the third and youngest son of John and Abigail (Smith) Adams. Thomas' father John was the 2nd President of the United States and his brother John Quincy was the 6th President of the United States

Adams lived with relatives in Haverhill, Massachusetts during his father's diplomatic missions in Europe, after Abigail Adams joined him in 1784. He graduated from Harvard University in 1790 and studied law at his family's behest, but brother John Quincy Adams did not believe he had the skills to practice law successfully.

Adams accompanied his brother John Quincy in The Netherlands and Prussia from 1794 to 1798, serving as his secretary. In 1805, Thomas Adams married Ann Harrod of Haverhill and settled in Quincy, which he represented in the Massachusetts legislature in 1805-06. In 1811, he was appointed chief justice of the Circuit Court of Common Pleas for the Southern Circuit of Massachusetts.
