Hello Russell, Saw your message and thought it was worth a chance. I am researching the Watts family who lived in Whitecliff during the 1800s.
My great grandmother, Lucy Watts, born about 1855, to John Watts and Eliza Morgan, married William White who died about 1882, and then married Enoch Drew and they emigrated to Australia in 1884. Lucy's father was John Watts and his father was also John Watts. They were both potters and operated the Pottery at Whitecliff from the early 1800s up to about 1890. Lucy was the 8th child in a family of 9. The Pottery stood quite close to the Nags Head Inn. I have found a William Watts in the 1851 Census, 38, Newland, wife Sarah 35, Daughters Anna 4 and Sarah 2. I think he may be a brother to John Watts junior (above) but I haven't as yet been able to confirm that.
I'm hoping we might be looking for the same Watts.
Regards Carmel.
