We now commence with Robert Potter, son of John Potter, and his wife Ruth (Fisher) Potter, and grand-son of the first Robert Potter mentioned in this work. It appears that he moved to Providence, now Scituate, and there lived the rest of his days. As we find a deed in the Providence records, book 4, page 102, of ____ acres of land in the Westcanaug purchase, for which he paid $?, deed from Daniel Abbot, 1719. This Robert Potter was born March 5th, 1665 or '66. We do not know when he died, but it appears that he was living in 1730, as we find a deed then given to his daughter, Sarah Bennett, wife of Benjamin Bennett, dated October 7th, 1730, giving them thirty acres during their natural lives, then to go to their son, Jonathan Bennett (the copy of said deed the writer now has in his possession). It would appear that his wife was not living, as only his name was attached to the deed. This is all the information we have on him, except that he had a son Robert, who settled in Scituate, and died there in 1758. He probably came there from Warwick with his father. This Robert Potter was great-grand-father to the writer. The writer found in a record book in the hands of Dr. E. M. Snow, superintendent of the board of health of Providence, where Robert Potter of Providence, was married to Catherine Johnson, of Warwick, April 3d, 1729. It would seem that he became acquainted with her before he left Warwick and went back and took her for his wife and lived in Scituate, as I find a deed (to him) from Daniel Abbot to Robert Potter, Jr., dated 1729, of ___ acres of the Wescanaug land for which he paid L30.-Providence Record book, No. 8, page 243. This Robert Potter died April 4th, 1758. His birth and the death of his wife are not know to the writer.

Catherine JOHNSON was born in 1702 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island. She died in Oct 1748. Catherine married (MRIN:758) Robert POTTER on 3 Apr 1729.

They had the following children.

  M i Robert POTTER was born in 1730. He died in 1784.
  M ii William POTTER was born in 1732. He died in 1808.
  M iii Capt. John POTTER was born on 17 Nov 1734. He died on 25 Mar 1811.

Capt. Ezra KNIGHT [Parents] was born on 8 Jun 1764 in Scituate, Providence, Rhode Island. He died on 10 Dec 1842 in Scituate, Providence, Rhode Island. He was buried in Waterman-Battey Cemetery, Coventry, Kent, Rhode Island. Ezra married (MRIN:759) Henrietta BAKER in 1784.
