The unfortunately named daughter of Thomas and Ellen Green was baptised in Bolsover on 27 March 1869. Her elder sister, Parnel was baptised on 29 April 1866.
Not surprisingly this family grabbed my attention, and I have endeavoured to identify if any of these unusual names had a particular family sentiment attached. However, my endeavours only seemed to complicate things further!
Father, Thomas, seems to be have been born Thomas Potter; when he married Ellen Taylor in 1854, he records his name as Thomas Green Dangsworth Potter. By 1861, he is Thomas Peter Green. It is almost by this name that he lives until 1896, dying as Thomas Potter Green. His son, Thomas, also used Peter and Potter interchangeably.
Not surprisingly, the subject of this post appears to have lived as Ada Petrina until her death in 1932.
