Second attempt:

Chair

My first teapot is typically for one person.

A seat for one person

My second teapot is a person in charge.

Chair as in Chairman

My third teapot is an umpire.

Chair umpire

My fourth teapot is a metal socket for railroads.

The earliest rail chairs, made of cast iron and introduced around 1800, were used to fix and support cast-iron rails at their ends - Wikipedia

My fifth teapot is to carry someone during a celebration.

Yup, it's chair :P

My sixth and final teapot is used for sitting.

A chair.

OLD ATTEMPT:

Could it be

tie

My first teapot is typically for one person.

A tie to be worn by one person

My second teapot is a person in charge.

?

My third teapot is an umpire.

Tie = draw?

My fourth teapot is a metal socket for railroads.

I saw there's something called cross-tie or so

My fifth teapot is to carry someone during a celebration.

?

My sixth and final teapot is used for sitting.

Umm... Chair tie?

Is it

LEAD?

My first teapot is typically for one person.

This may reference the fact that there's usually only one "lead" in many situations: one lead actor or actress, one person who leads a competition, one boss for a group, etc.

My second teapot is a person in charge.

The person who leads a group towards an objective.

My third teapot is an umpire.

In some sports, there's the "lead official" and there are other assisting officials.

My fourth teapot is a metal socket for railroads.

Lead is a strong material.

My fifth teapot is to carry someone during a celebration.

?

Is it a

Coach

My second teapot is a person in charge.

Refers to what coaches as a person do

My third teapot is an umpire.

He is also a referee

My fourth teapot is a metal socket for railroads.

Coaches of a train

To coach someone means to carry someone.. not sure about this hint

I believe it may be:

LAP

My first teapot is typically for one person.

Not sure on this one

My second teapot is a person in charge.

You "drop things in someone's lap" to give them responsibility (not sure about this one)

My third teapot is an umpire.

Thinking there is an umpire with the initial L.A.P.? But couldn't find a reference.

My fourth teapot is a metal socket for railroads.

There are lap sockets, though I didn't find a connection to railroads

My fifth teapot is to carry someone during a celebration.

Victory lap

My sixth and final teapot is used for sitting.

One person can sit on another's lap

  • $\begingroup$ After reading your response to @nikki, I see what the actual answer is, but I'll let them discover it since it's right there and I don't see how it fits with a couple of the clues yet. $\endgroup$ – MetaZen Sep 25 '18 at 16:53
  • $\begingroup$ Oh man, I'm seeing this only now! You should have gone ahead! :) $\endgroup$ – nikki Sep 25 '18 at 17:14
  • $\begingroup$ +1 from me though :) $\endgroup$ – nikki Sep 25 '18 at 17:19
  • $\begingroup$ Ha - thanks. I was still trying to figure out #5, which I just saw is a British reference. I wouldn't have found it without her comment, so seemed fair to let you discover it :) $\endgroup$ – MetaZen Sep 25 '18 at 17:38
