  • Notes 
    • "Hugh George was born in June 1881, mother called him Hugh after his father and George after her favourite brother (Rene Boston's father). So father never saw his youngest son, and Hugh never knew his father."

      not to be confused with Revd Canon George Potter (d.1960) 'Father Potter of Peckham'
