Hi all. Stumbled on this site after searching Pottage. LizzieL: John Samuel and Elizabeth are my 3x great grandparents with their daughter Sarah Ann, being the family line I'm linked to. I have a very excited 95 year old Grandma (Sarah's Grandaughter!) who relishes hearing things about her ancestors, so anything you can tell me will be greatly appreciated!

The person who has done most research on the Pottages is Julian, who has contributed earlier in this thread. Although he hasn't been active for a few months, your response to this thread should notify him that a message has been posted. Have you gone back further than John Samuel and Elizabeth Carr? I am really stuck on Elizabeth's mother. I know she was Sarah Freeman born in Ripon about 1796 from census info, but I can't find anything more.
Have started new thread earlier on Carr / Freeman

Wow! Thanks for the replies Rachel & Lizzie & Julian - I'd completely missed them until an email came today! Sorry.

I would love to have copies of John Samuel Pottage's marriage cert if poss. (and any others).  If you are able then I'l DM you my email address.

Ethel was my wife's paternal grandmother so I think that makes you Rachel and my wife, Melanie (Mel) 3rd cousins!

Lizzie - what's your full line to James?

Thanks again for your kind help.

That's great Lizzie - hopefully Julian will see the notification!
I've not gone any further down that line yet - I've been concentrating on the Pottage/Wood line for my Grandma. My family tree passion has been reignited after catching up with elderly relatives at a funeral today who have been feeding me their memories!

Sorry to hear of your recent loss. I have some information on that side of the family, most from another distant cousin descended from Sarah Ann. I don't think he belongs to Roots Chat. If I can find a recent email address for him that works, I will suggest he joins. When you have made 3 posts I can PM you some information. I am trying to make it into sensible and readable format from my ancient family tree maker  software

Hello and welcome to Rootschat. As you are also related to the Carrs of Tockwith, we must be distant cousins.
