James POTTER - Horsham

James Potter married Elizabeth Constable, 10 Sept 1837, Horsham, Sussex. Sailed from London onboard "Rajasthan" 27 Oct 1839. Arrived Adelaide, South Australia, 6 Feb 1840 with one child.

Trying to track down ancestors and relatives in UK.

Have a transcription of a letter to James' son Ben from his cousin Henry, living at 72 Spencers Rd Horsham 12 Feb 1919.

Have a bit of information about Henry and his wife (Mary Elizabeth Steele, married 1876) and 7 children, Bessie, Minnie, Henry, Albert, Sidney, Dorothy, Ronald & granddaughters Dorothy Maud & Marjorie.

Henry had 2 uncles Bill & Joe who with Henry's father were Potter Brothers Builders. These are probably siblings of James.

Don't know Henry's fathers name. Henry's grandfather was buried in the Congregational Chapel yard (Horsham?) and his wife was Elizabeth who was born on 12 Feb.

Henry also had a cousin Frank (Potter) living in Horsham.
