Jeremiah Potter's book from 1881 references Anthony Potter as his first child on Page 6 with no other reference in the book.

In the introduction to the Potter Genealogies, the author states that,

"It has also been stated by some historians that Anthony Potter, of Ipswich, was a son of the Robert Potter, of Lynn, who subsequently settled in Portsmouth, RI. There does not seem to be any records to make this certain. The name Anthony was a family name, and suggests that his mother may have been an Anthony, as the families of Anthony and Potter were connected."
