John Adson (Composer)

Born: c. 1587, Watford, UK

Died: 20th June 1640, London, UK

Nationality: English

John Adson was an English musician and composer. Little is known about his early life; the first certain reference to him comes in 1604, when he was in service to Charles III, Duke of Lorraine as a cornett player. Some time around February 1614 he married Jane Lannerie and at least two of their sons went on to become musicians themselves.

After relocating to London, Adson joined the City Waits and remained a member until his death.
