Potters of Tivitshall / Winfarthing Norfolk
« on: Monday 19 April 10 20:14 BST (UK) »
Has anyone links with the following
Soloman Potter b 1808 in Tivitshall but lived in Short Green and Fairgreen Winfarthing till he died in 1888.

He was Married to Pheobe (Possibly surname Banham or born in Banham in1812) Children all born in Winfarthing were Matilda 1829, Mary Ann 1835, Robert 1833, Sarah 1835, George 1838, Elizabeth 1844, Sarah A 1847, Emily 1850 and Soloman 1852

George became a shoemaker and for some reason b/w 1851&1861 he and most of the family moved to Durham area and became miners. Soloman Jnr had a large family after marrying in Durham area in 1874

Thanks Guys,
After check the web pages suggested it appears that Matilda was 12weeks in the 1842 census and she does not appear on the 1852 census. The initial reason for the post was that I have Solomon Born Tivitshall 1808 - 1888 father George B 1790 and wife Ann Clark b1792 also in Tivitshall. One member has the same Solomon Born in Starston 1807 father William Born 1778 and wife Sarah. All very confusing.

There is also a large family of Potters living at the same time in Winfarthing headed by a Joel Potter but I have been unable to link these to mine. In a small village I find it hard to believe there is not a linkto them all somewhere.

PS If any of you out there are related then I have a very large tree which I am only to happy to share.

Hi Guys,

Now this is all getting very confusing. Fact, Solomon Potter was married to a Phebe Banham in 1831 in Winfarthing. There is no record of either in Winfarthing in the 1801, 1811 or 1821 census so they must have moved to Winfarthing between 1821 and 1831. They both lived there till they died in 1888 and had a large family which I have traced to the present date. However I cannot find any record of Solomons birth. One member has it as Starston in 1807 with a parish record but in every census from 1841 Solomon records his birth place as being Tivitshall and in one he records it as being Tivitshall St Mary. A family tree posted on Ancestry has Solomons father as George Potter born 1790 in Tivitshall but I have not been able to verfy this. The only way I can see to verify this once and for all is to access parish records of Tivitshall. If Solomon is recorded then great if not then it looks like it could be Starston. My question is has anyone knowledge of Tivitshall parish registers or an early census being online so I can check. I cannot find any sites where they are.
