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.

Robert Potter, Lynn Ma, 1634

Hello,

I am a beginning family historian and am also descended from Robert Potter, ex-Coventry or Worcester. My vague understanding is that the Holland connection comes after Potter left England, following Samuel Gorton, ultimately to MA and RI.

The most glowing account of the Robert Potter 17th century ancestry is in Hodges biography of Bishop Henry Codman Potter, another descendant.

PLease feel free to e-mail me (take the "REMOVE") from my e-mail address with any questions.

I have in my family a William Potter married to a Eunice Stillman, both probably from Westerly, RI. Settled in Alfred, NY about the 1800's. She married for a second time to a Robert West. # children 3 Pamela, Horace, Parley, Parley is in the 1850 Almond, NY census. Any matches? Doug

Doug,
I was wondering if you have any information on the
Pamela West who you mentioned in this message. I
am searching for a Pamela West who married Edward
Green in the Alfred area about that time frame. Can you
help me any? Thanks.

I go back to Nicholas Potter b 1460 in ENG. His son was Thomas Potter b about 1500 and Thomas' wife was Margaret __


If you have detail on and after the later Nicholas Potter who was born in 1604 in England let me know please. His wife was Emma Carter or Knight.

Thank you.
