- Anthony Potter's Profile
- Family Tree & Genealogy Tools
Previously, this profile for Anthony Potter showed his parents as Robert Potter and Isabel Anthony. According to Anderson’s Great Migration, Robert Potter had three children, Deliverance, John and Elizabeth. There is no mention of Anthony Potter being the child of Robert Potter and Isabel Tripp/Anthony, so they have been detached from this profile.
Anthony Potter was born about 1628 in Coventry, Warwickshire, England. (citation needed).
He was in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts by 1648.
He died 26 March 1690 in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts.
John Whipple's 1669 includes a bequest: "I give unto Anthony Potter my son in law some times, forty shillings," implying that Anthony Potter had been married to a daughter (deceased?) of John Whipple. Most say that daughter was Elizabeth, but Anderson in his Great Migration series claims otherwise.
Anthony Potter, the immigrant ancestor, was born in England in 1628 and died in 1690. His farm was one of the best in Ipswich, on the road to Salem, southwest of Ipswich village. His wife was Elizabeth Whipple. His children were John, Edmund, Samuel, Thomas, Anthony, Elizabeth and Lydia.
