  • Notes 
    • "David Potts was born about 1700 in Germantown, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. He died on May 1, 1768 in Loudoun Co., Virginia. The Potts Family in American, 1901, T. M. Potts page 226 - was born about the year 1700, as nearly as can be e stimated. He was without doubt the son of Jonas and Mary Potts, of Philadelphia
      County, Pennsylvania, though no record of birth has been found. All the traditions and statements of aged members of differenet lines of the family point to that conclusion. These allegations, summed up, may be included in the following . The Potts family came to Pennsylvania from Wales - some allege, with William Penn. They lived at or about Pottsgrove, where their ancestor owned a plantation to which the Viriginia descendants were heirs. (Note: Jonas Potts owned and occupied a farm in Gilberts Manor, which adjoined Pottsgrove. It is not certain that he ever secured a full title to this land, and no deed of conveyance from him or his legal representatives has been found.
      Such a tradition might easily grow from such a foundation). One tradition, in a collateral line, alleges that Jonah or Jonas Potts came to Pennsylvania from Wales. Another tradition allege s that the Potts' were driven from Wales by reason of religious oppression."
