Welcome to the boards, Michele.

Info re National Adoption Contact Register:

Assuming she was born in England or Wales, the only Jacqueline S Potter I can see in a reasonable timeframe was one born in 1927 - see FreeBMD.

However, that woman married in 1949, then remarried in 1954, and died in Bedford in 2004 under her second married surname. She and her second husband had several children, including one in Bedfordshire in the first qr of 1959 .

As the child you mention was born in Hampshire, the woman above couldn't be the mother.

You really should not name the lady on this insecure site. You are invading her privacy
