Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Adair, KS (died 21 July 1798) was an Irish serjeant-at-law. He was admitted to Peterhouse, Cambridge, and took a B.A. in 1764, and M.A. in 1767. He was educated in law and in due course called to the bar by the society of Lincoln's Inn. In the early part of the reign of George III he was ranked among the advocates of the popular side; in 1771, he was employed as counsel in the famous case of the House of Commons against the printers of "Letters of Junius" and in this and other instances gave so much satisfaction to the citizens, that, on the death of Glynn, he was elected Recorder of London, a post he held until 1789.show more
