Louise, I read with interest your statement that James Adair was appointed Indian Agent 1735 by King George III.

Would you be so kind as to advise me if it was an appointment / commission based in London (i.e. there was a William Adair, Secretary of Virginia, but he was based in London) or whether it was an appointment / commission made in America and ratified in London by King George III, please. I have been attempting to find the Record Group to look up the actual appointment for the Adair family history, and your help would be most appreciated. Thankyou.

There was a James Park Adair in York County in the 1790 census.

The James Adair I refer to was born in England ca 1709, son of Sir Robert Adair.
As a younger son he could not benefit from primogeniture so apparently set off
on his own for adventure in the colonies. He landed in Charleston SC in 1735.
Now as to who he got his commission from in Charleston. SC was a royal colony
with a "Royal Governor"--that is appointed by the Crown. While I could not find
exact information I believe that this James Adair, who declared himself originally
as a trader, was most like appointed by Governor Thomas Broughton but I am
not absolutely sure of that. It would take a bit of research if you ever wish to
establish the nature of the appointment.
