ADDITIIONAL INFORMATION ON OUR POTTER LINEAGE #3

POTTER IS DEFINITELY AN OCCUPATIONAL TYPE NAME. THE ORIGINAL MEANING OF THE WORD WAS A BELL MAKER, BUT EVENTUALLY IT CAME TO MEAN A MAKER OF POTTERY. THERE ARE SEVERAL SPELLING VARIATIONS OF THE NAME BUT NO EVIDENCE THAT ANY OF OUR ANCESTORS EVER USED ANY VARIATION.

IT IS NOT CERTAIN WHERE OUR POTTER LINEAGE ORIGINATED. FAMILY TRADITION SAYS THAT THIS FAMILY WAS OF FLEMISH EXTRACTION. BUT THE ONLY RECORDS OUTSIDE THE U.S. WERE IN NEWPORT-PAGNELL, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE ,.ENG.

IN ADDITION TO BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, A POSSBLE ORIGIN IS DEVONSHIRE. THERE WAS A POTTER FAMILY AT IDDESLEIGH, NORTH DEVONSHIRE IN 1620. THERE WAS A DR. BARNABAS POTTER, BISHOP OF CARLISLE IN 1628 WHO WAS PREVIOUSLY OF DEVONSHIRE. THERE WAS ALSO A POTTER FAMILY AT WESTERHAM,KENT, ENGLAND

i would like to correspond with anyone about any of the surnames listed.
