ADAM, ADAMS, ADAMSON: These names, with many others, have derived from various individuals named 'Adam' and the popularity of that as a baptismal name has led to their widespread occurrence throughout Britain. Therefore, Scottish ancestry should not be assumed without evidence of geographical or genealogical association. In Scotland, through dialect variation, numerous forms have developed until quite distinct forms have become associated with the different clans.

The Adams, Adies and Edies, along with other variations, are claimed by the Gordons of the Northeast - whose progenitor 'Adam de Gordon' held lands in Berwickshire in the 13th century. The Aysons and Essons are linked with the Clan Chattan, through 'Ay'(='Adam') having been a traditional name among the kindred from time immemorial. Many Adamsons have a traditional association with both Gordon and Clan Chattan but the name is perhaps more common in Lowland Scotland where they are earliest recorded in the 13th century
