NEWTON-POTTER, a township in Leeds parish, W. R. Yorkshire; suburban to Chapel-Allerton, and from 1¼to 2½ miles N N E of Leeds. It contains the village of New Leeds, part of the village of Buslingthorpe, and the hamlets of Gipton, Harehills, and Squire-Pastures; and it takes the latter part of its name from relics of a very ancient pottery, supposed to have been Roman. ...

Acres, 1, 667. Real property, £12, 332; of which £550 are in mines, and £668 in quarries. Pop. in 1851, 1, 385; in 1861, 1,878. Houses, 375. The manor belonged formerly to the Mauleverers, the Scotts, and the Hardwicks; and belongs now to the Earl of Mexborough. There are many good residences.
