Surnames: Potter, Hutton, Stone, Preston, Heading
Does anyone have any information on the following people?

James Potter m. Mary Hutton
Child:
George Augustus Potter born abt. 1817 Oxford, England
George was married 3 times.

His first wife was Hannah Stone. They were married in 1842 in London, and had Children George and Henry.

His second wife was Amelia Preston. They were probably married in London where there first 2 children, Sophia Amelia (b. 1849) and James were born. The family emigrated to Australia.
Amelia died in 1864 and George later went back to England and married Sophia Preston, and moved to Australian again where he died in 1891.

Amelia is my GGG Grandmother. Her parents were Charles Preston and Mary Heading and I believe she was from Oxford.

Does anyone know anything about this family?
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks.

A. O'Brien,
Australia

Hi, George Augustus and Amelia were my G.G.Grandparents. One of his sons was James, James' youngest son was John Stone, John Stone's only child was my father John Albert. I have been researching them on and off for about two years with the help of Alison Boundy, another relative. Love to have contact with you, A. 'Brien pdccorry@bigpond.com.a

Hello

I'm interested to see you have these connections. My LORD family was from Berkshire and Oxford, England. My POTTER family [great-grandmother Mary Anne] was from Godstone, Surrey and married George LORD. Their daughter, Mary Anne Elizabeth LORD emigrated to Australia [why? when ?].

We don't know how/where George met Mary - and have only recently found other POTTER family connections and distant cousins in Australia - though currently no trace of Mary Anne Elizabeth and famliy [if any].

My great-grandmother was Mary POTTER from Godstone, Surrey, England.

Mary Anne POTTER (b.1858)
spouse: George LORD (b.1858;m.1882)
Daughter: Mary Anne Elizabeth LORD (b.1884) - emigrated to Australia in ?
Son: Joseph Richard LORD (b.1891) London, England [my grandfather]
spouse: Lilian BREITZKE (b. 1893) London, England

I have lots of detail on other POTTER, LORD, BREITZKE family members if you are interested.

"His first wife was Hannah Stone. They were married in 1842 in London..."
This is incorrect, sorry. His first wife was Mary Ann Stone and they were married in 1840 in London.
