I have researched the Potterton family in Ireland, c.1660-1960, and have published my researches in a book, 'Potterton People and Places: three centuries of an Irish family'. See my website for details: www.potterton.ie
Some family members have, however, eluded me. Henry (b. 1874) and John (b.1876) who went to America (Boston area) about 1896. Alexander Potterton arrived in Adelaide, Australia in 1838, is recorded in Thames, New Zealand in 1881 and is supposed to have married a woman from Mauritius called Madeleine Selene Tournelle. Any information on these or othet Irish Pottertons would be most welcome.
