    1. [S2] A history of the Potts Family, Geoffrey William Potts (Reliability: 2), Mar 1989.
      William Herbert Potts and Clara Ellen Potts lived at "Havilah" Station after they married, they then had a dairy farm at "Pipeclay" near Mudgee. they left there and went into a general store at Cudgegone (a small town near Mudgee which is now submerged in the Windemeer Dam). They left Cudgegong and managed a property at Nevertire (west of Dubbo) around 1901 and another at Ponto (near Arthurville, Wellington). William then went share farming at Apsley, just outside Wellington and later moved to Curra Creek about 2 Kilometers over the Bell River from Wellington (on the left hand side of the road, just past the Roman Catholic Cemetery). In 1915,he purchased a house and about 10 hectares of land at the top end of Pierce St, Wellington. The inheritance received by Clara Ellen Potts from her father was used to buy this property. The property was called "Hillview". In 1925 they purchased more property, 2 kilometres from "Hillview" where they ran sheep and cattle. This property was later sold.
      In 1938 the original house was pulled down. There was enough left over to build another house in Wellington.
