George (1650/1 - 1720) perhaps the oldest local Pott with known connections to the Todrig and Hoscote family. He has one of the earliest tombstones in Borthwick Waas. He married an Elliot. His children probably included: Adam (1690/1 - 1770) of Hoscote; possibly John of Caerlenrig (c.1693 - 1772), but this could have been his nephew; Robert (c.1696 - 1771); George of Todrig (c.1700 - 1781); James.
