There were numerous immigrants to colonial Rhode Island named Potter and there may (or may not) have been ties of kinship between some of them. Once upon a time, several Potter immigrants were erroneously identified as children of George and Martha ([-?-]) Potter of London in the research of Vernon and Nola (Steed) Valantine of La Crescenta, California, as submitted to the Ancestral File of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In 1999, another researcher, Paul Gifford, reviewed the relevant parish registers and discovered that most of the birth records thought to pertain to the immigrant Potter siblings actually had corresponding death records! The origins of the Potter immigrants and their kinship, if any, remain unknown.
