Joseph Hill Adcock, third son of James Adcock and Mary Hill, married Martha Naseby, fifth child of William Naseby and Eliza Thompson at St Andrew's Church, Rugby on 8 Apr 1869. Although not blood relatives, they were still keeping it in the family, as Joseph's father, James Adcock was the brother of Mary Adcock, wife of Daniel Thompson, who was the brother of Eliza Thompson, Martha's mother. Don't worry if you're still confused.

Joseph and Martha had four children: 
  1. George Hill Adcock born 1870, bap. 9 Oct 1870 at St Andrew's, Rugby
  2. James William Adcock born 1875, bap. 11 Jul 1875 at St Andrew's, Rugby
  3. Mary Elizabeth Mobbs Adcock born 1877, bap 29 Apr 1877 at St Matthew's, Rugby
  4. Louisa Cox Adcock born 1880, bap. 26 Dec 1880 at St Matthew's, Rugby
In 1871, Joseph H Adcock (29), Gardener, is living with wife Martha (21) and son George H (0).
