His father-in-law (step-father), Nicholas Niles, bound him out to William Baulstone for the term of eighteen years. He may have been three years old at the time, but probably older, as the boy "gave his consent," so that his apprenticeship doubtless extended until after he came of age. The town approved the contract "for the better security of Mr. Baulstone." He and Nathaniel Potter, on September 5, 1664, confirmed a deed of eight acres that had once been in their father's possession, said deed having been made by Samuel Wilbur to John Tripp, shaft carpenter, May 7, 1663.

The Potter Line (I) George Potter, the immigrant ancestor, settled early in Rhode Island. He was born in England, and died soon after 1638, it is supposed, as no further record of him has been found. His widow married Nicholas Niles. George Potter was admitted an inhabitant of the Island of Aquidneck in 1638. He and twenty-eight others signed the following compact, dated April 30, 1639: "We whose names are underwritten do acknowledge ourselves the legal subjects of his Majesty King Charles, and in his name do hereby bind ourselves into a civil body politicke, unto his laws according to matters of Justice." Nathaniel Potter, probably his brother, signed the same compact.

George is a MRCA to two profiles, which serves as a check on the lineage. I may add a DNA section when I have the links all completed.
