Browsing the The National Archive site the other day, I found something which maybe of interest to you.

Adair Family Archives HA12/A1/1 - HA12/A11/4 -
Bundle marked: 'Miscellaneous Adair Papers' HA12/A2/3 14 Feb 1630-18 Apr 1873

The Adair name seems to be linked with my McNaghten name is some way

Hope this helps
