    Notes:

    Excerpt from "Early New England People": John Poore came from Wiltshire, England, to New England in 1635. In 1638, Alice Poore, aged 20, Samuel Poore, aged 18, and Daniel Poore, aged 14, came to New England with the family of Richard Dummer, in the ship Bevis, from the port of Southampton, England. there was also a Thomas Poore, who died in Andover, Moass., in 1695. It is believed that they were all members of the same family. they are supposed to have been descendants of Philip Poor of Amersbury, Wiltshire, England; a tradition to this effect, says Major Benjamin Perley Poore, has come down in the family here, and was also transmited to the family of Sir Edward Poore of Wiltshire, England. Mr. Joseph Fullerton, in his "History of Raymond, New Hampshire," says that he has made investigations for the purpose of connecting the American family of Poore with the old English family, and finds evidence of such a connection, although he has not as yet found positive proof of the fact. Major Poore says: "Philip Poor of Amesbury, England, who died in 1571, aged 71 years, added a final e to his name and the Wiltshire Poores have since used it. It is also certain that the first settlers of the name in New England spelled their name with the final e, although in some branches of the different families it was subsequently omitted, to be in some instances restored."
    In the list of the names of those who composed the first English colony in Virginia, in 1585, is the name of Richard Poore.
    John Poore settled in Newbury on the south-easterly side of the Parker River, in the part of town called the Neck. He was one of the original proprietors of the town. The house built by him is still standing, and has always remained in the family. "Nov. 20, (1650) the town granted John Poore, twenty-two acres of upland, in consequence of his living so remote from meeting and difficulty in coming over the ferry and for his satisfaction." (History of Newbury by Cofin.) John Poore, wer are told, was attorney for his brother Daniel, in a case brought by the latter "against Jo Godfrey and Walter Wright."
    John Poore died while hunting for game in the woods. He lost his way and perished.

    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.
