About Robert Potter

Robert POTTER. Nicholas Potter Descendants:

Recent research in England given in this volume apparently sheds a little light on this family's English origins. Included are "Nycholas", 3 Thomas's (two of which, at least, must have died young) John, Robert, Mary, Ann, Susan. No probate or civil records were included in the Potter volume.

He was married to Elizabeth MARSHALL on 4 Nov 1591 in Newport-Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, England.

It is probable that Thomas and Isobell are the parents of Robert, but it can't really be proven.

[(2623) Nicholas Potter: These marriage, baptisms and burials were compiled by A Raymond Hebb who was hired to copy the names of all individuals by the name of Potter in the Parish Register, according to this volume.]

The line from Robert and Elizabeth backwards is mostly guess work that some agree with and others don't. I would highly recommend the book by Frank Elwood Potter named "The descendants of Nicholas Potter of Lynn Mass"

The child Robert shown listed according to church records shows he was born in Newport Pagnell in 1606. There was a Robert who was born in Coventry who migrated here about the same time as Nicholas, but there is no known connection between this Robert and the one who is a child of Robert and Elizabeth.

You pretty much have it all. Unless you have some other documents at your disposal. Line from Robert & Elizabeth backwards is mostly guess work some agree with & others don't. I would highly recommend bk by Frank Elwood Potter named "Descendants of Nicholas Potter of Lynn Mass" Child Robt you show listed according to church records shows he was b Newport Pagnell in 1606. There was Robt who b Coventry who migrated here abt same time as Nicholas, but no known connection bet this Robert & 1 who is child of Robert & Elizabeth.

Actual children listed is as follows

Thos Sep 1592

Thos Feb 1595

Thos Apr 1600

John Apr 1602

Nycholas Apr 1604

Robt Sep 1606

Mary Dec 1608

Ann Feb 1610

Susann Apr 1619

Probable Thos & Isobell are parents of Robt, but can't really be proven. Where do you fit in line?

Hi Jack,

I believe I am direct descendant of Nicholas Potter thru Robert/Robert/Ephraim/Theophilus/Ephraim/Ephraim line. I have original obit from Jul 23 1887 where G3 gfather Ephraim was listed as b Ellisburg, NY (Jefferson Co) 3/12/1820. Says parents were amg early Am settlers & participated in Rev struggle. -------------------- Toni's Tree
