Ted Potts (born Edward Potts) was born at Over Alderley, Cheshire in 1865/6 (9)The earliest mention I have of Ted Potts is in 1881 (8) when he was recorded as living at Gately Green Farm as a Farm Servant. Edward Potts married Lucy Salthouse in 1895 in Alderley. In 1901 (9) they were living at Welsh Row with their young son Herbert, recorded as Albert E Potts on the census form. Edward Potts' occupation was recorded as 'farmer in his own right', the farm was Gately Green (10). Herbert joined the 9th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders, he died in France in 1918. In 1938 Edward was living with his second wife, Alice Simpson (11), at the village shop in Church Cottages (12) where Annie Salthouse had lived and kept the shop in 1901 (13). Edward and Lucy had only one son that I know of, Herbert Edward Potts, but there may have been more children. Edward Potts is remembered as a very pleasant, quiet man who never travelled far from Nether Alderley, he was a member  of St Mary's Church, Nether Alderley and was a bellringer there for over 50 years.
Lucy Potts Born Lucy Salthouse, daughter of John Salthouse and Lucy Walters, Lucy was born in Nether Alderley. In 1881 she was living with her sister, Annie Potts, in the village shop opposite Nether Alderley Mill as an assistant grocer. Lucy married Edward Potts in 1895. See Lucy Salthouse
Herbert Edward Potts Herbert Edward Potts, recorded as Albert E Potts on the 1901 census and Hubert E Potts on Cheshire bmd. Herbert was born in 1898, the son of Edward and Lucy Potts and lived with his family at Welsh Row in 1901. Sadly, Herbert was killed in France in 1918, on the 22 March,  when he was 20 years old. Herbert was in the Seaforth Highlanders when they were subjected to the last major German Offensive at the battle of St Quentin. He is commemorated at Roye New British Cemetery in France.
