Potter Somersal, alia Summersale 1086 DB, Nethersomersale 1318Trusley , 1330Ass , inferiori Somersale 1325 DbA iv, Potter Somersall 1415Woll , 1472WollCh , 1581 Lanc, Potter Somersale 1423 DbA iv. Earlier 'lower Somersal', v. neoðera and cf. Somersal Herbert supra 604. The origin of the later Potter is unknown, though it is clearly from late OE pottere 'maker of pots'. It is most likely of course to be a surname but none has been noted with connections here nor is there any local knowledge of a pottery. Cf. with this Brickkiln Rough in next para.
