    Notes:

    Excerpt from "A genealogical History of the Clark and Worth Families": The name is Anglo-Norman; the nickname Bartle, (son of Bartholomew) plus diminutive-ot and -et is seen in old English records: Bartelot, county Bedford in 1273; Thomas Bartlet, Yorkshire in 1379; and Robert Bartlet, county Dorset in 1578. Newbury was the first livestock-raising settlement in the province,colonied largely by immigrants from Wiltshire, England. A party of colonists from Wiltshire came to Ipswich, Mass, March 24, 1634, with the Rev. thomas Parker on the ship Mary and John. In 1635 they moved on to colonize Newbury.

    Richard came to Newbury in 1635, very likely in the company of Rev. Parker from Wiltshire. Richard Bartlett brought his children, and judging from their birth dates, he was probable married twice in Entgland. His son John's name appears on the passenger list of the Mary and John. They bought land at what ever since has been called Bartlett's Cove near Chain Bridge and opposite Amesbury Ferry, and records show that they were men of education, ability and influence. Richart Sr. brought from England a rare Breecher Bible he had purchased in 1612, as well as other books. This edition of the Bible contained the Book of Common Prayer, a Concordance, and Psalms set to music. According to tradition, the Bartletts were a music-loving family.

    Excerpt from "Family Records of Branches of the Hanaford, Thompson, Huckins, Prescott, Smith, Neal, etc": The ancestors of the Bartletts came from Normandy, with William the Conqueror, and fought the battle of Hastings. Stopham, England, is the ancestral seat of the family. the Bartletts were among the Wiltshire Colony that came over on the Mary and Joh, March 24, 1633, and settled at Newbury, Mass,; among this colony was Richard Bartlett and family.
