Ad´don One of several places mentioned in Nehemiah 7:61, being towns in the land of captivity, from which those who returned to Palestine were unable to 'shew their father's house, or their seed, whether they were of Israel.' This, probably, means that they were unable to furnish such undeniable legal proof as was required in such cases. And this is in some degree explained by the subsequent (Nehemiah 7:63) mention of priests who were expelled the priesthood because their descent was not found to be genealogically registered. These instances show the importance which was attached to their genealogies by the Jews [GENEALOGY].
