Thomas Potterton1

b. 1701
Father*John Potterton1 d. 25 Mar 1738
Name-DescriptiveThe descriptive name used by the author of Potterton People and Places to clarify the identification of this Thomas Potterton, and to place him correctly within the Potterton family, was Thomas Potterton II.1
Birth*1701According to Potterton family tradition, Thomas was believed to have been born about 1701 in County Meath, Ireland. Questions arose, though, when a deed dated 1731 described Thomas as the only son of John, "then aged about 19." If Thomas was only 19 in 1731, he would have been born about 1712. The Potterton People author believed the 1712 date was incorrect as it did not align well with other known dates.1
Marriage*He married first ______ Wilson of Crookstown, County Kildare.1
Marriage*1735He married second Sarah Lamb in 1735 in St. Werburgh's, Dublin.1
(Son) Probate5 April 1738His father's will, naming his wife Ellinor, son Thomas, and daughters Elizabeth and Abigail, was proved on 5 April 1738.1
Inheritance*Upon his father's death, Thomas inherited the leased properties of Rathcormick, County Meath.1
Will*22 September 1756Thomas Potterton II wrote his will dated 22 September 1756. It recorded his sons as Henry I, to whom he bequeathed Moyrath, John II, to whom he bequeathed Rathcormick, Thomas III, to whom he bequeathed Ballaghtalion, and Mark, to whom he bequeathed Pagetstown and Hardrestown. His will also identified his daughter Sarah, and his sisters Abigail Wilson and Elizabeth Walker.1
