149 From "British History Online" for Stonehouse: Manors and other estates

In the 16th century and early 17th an estate at Stonehouse and Ebley was acquired by the Selwyn family of Matson. In 1588 Jasper Selwyn bought a fulling-mill at Bridgend and lands from Humphrey Osborne, and in 1602 his estate in Stonehouse was described as 4 houses and over 100 a. of land. By his marriage to Margaret Robins in 1592 Jasper Selwyn acquired lands in Stonehouse and Ebley which had belonged in 1533 to Thomas Lane (d. 1544); Thomas's son, also Thomas, sold the lands in 1557 to John Robins of Matson, whose successor, Thomas Robins (d. c. 1578), left them to his daughter Margaret. In 1621 Jasper Selwyn's son William married Edith, daughter of an Ebley clothier, Leonard Bennett; her inheritance included Ebley Mill and the house called EBLEY COURT. Jasper Selwyn died in 1635 and William in 1643. The estate then passed to William's son, also William, who died in 1679. William the son of the younger William (d. 1702) then held the estate, and his widow Albinia (d. 1738) held it in 1711. In the late 17th century the property at Ebley included the cloth-mill with 70 a. of land, and another farm of 60 a., and, at Stonehouse, the Bridgend cloth-mill and c. 100 a. of land. Albinia Selwyn's son John died in 1751, and his son, George Augustus Selwyn, owned Ebley Mill in 1788 and died in 1791 when the estate passed to his nephew Thomas Townshend, Viscount Sydney.  
Selwyn, Jasper (I0536)
150 From "Friend in Deed" by Cyril Clegg (a book about the Refuge Assurance Co. Ltd.)

"Henry Adams,who was born at Hollins End near Sheffield,on March 3rd 1836,The youngest of of a large family who,at the age of nine,commenced work in a Yorkshire coal mine.His Family,to improve their circumstances, moved frequently,living at Masborough,Intake and Wombell Main Colliery,near Barnsley.

Henry Adams had none of the educational advantages enjoyed by the Youth of today,but like so many of the early Refuge Members,he was a devoted Methodist and received his early training at Sunday School.He was a thoughtful man.and working in the mines man under the conditions of those days,the need of the working man to save and protect himself and his family against the misfortunes of accident,disease and death was very apparant to him.

By the time he left the mines at the age of 27 in 1863 to join forces with James Proctor,he had already begun to form his own little local society in South Yorkshire;and in the years that followed until his death in 1906,he successfully developed the business of the Refuge not only in South Yorkshire,but in the Counties of Derby,Lincoln and Nottingham,While his son William Adams pioneered the business in the Birmingham area." 
Adams, Henry (I1277)
