Potts Genealogy & History

Potts is an English surname, a shortened form of Philpott, which itself is a diminutive of Philip, from the Greek Philippos, meaning lover of horses. It can also be topographical, for someone living near a depression in the ground, or pot in Middle English and pott in Old English. Lastly, it can be locational, since some places were named after those sunken spots. Potts family history enters the books with Godwin Pot, noted in the Book of Winton in Hampshire, dated 1115. Potts genealogy boasts several renowned persons, such as Union General and Montana Governor Benjamin Potts, General William Potts, and British musician Paul Potts.
