    Notes 
    • William Pote, Jr. came from Marblehead, Mass., to Falmouth (Portland) about 1728, and was the ancestor of all of the name in this region. Mr. Pote appears to have been a citizen of Gorham as early as 1741. He was living in Gorham in 1743, for in that year we find the Proprietors notified to hold meetings at his dwelling house in this town. He owned the right No. 73, on the thirty acre lot belonging to which it seems probable that he made his home. At the time of the French and Indian war, Mr. Pote with his family returned to Falmouth, where he died.
