  • Name George BARTLETT  [2, 3
    • I originally had Deacon George Bartlett as the son of Robert Bartlett and Mary Warren. It was done many years ago when my genealogy skills were just beginning to develop. At that time, I relied on other's family trees. I have since learned to find vital resources. Sorry for the misleading of this family.

      Deacon George Bartlett is said to have been a brother of John Bartlett who lived in Windsor. he was a Guilford Soon after the settlement of the plantation. His name appears as a witness in the first Court record, Aug. 14, 645, and it would seem as if he had been there then a considerable time. At a Court, Oct. 9, 1645, he was appointed, with three others, "to make and finish ye pound within ye time of 3 weeks under ye fine of 20 shillings." He seems to have been a man of education and consequence in the community, and was frequently a witness in the Courts.

      At a General Court, on May 22, 1648, "Mr." Bartlett was given the "Freeman's Charge." In the Book of "Terriers," his name is tenth, with a homelot containing four and a half acres, allowed for four, at the South-west corner of the Green. he was chosen overseer of highways on May 22, 1649, and on June 9, 1653, one of the townsmen. He succeeded Gov. William Leete as Secretary of the Plantation, on June 5, 1662, and at the same time became one of the Deputies to hold the Particular Courts. he was chosen on April 23, 1665, with John Fowler, as one of the first representatives sent by Guilford to the General Assembly of Connecticut, by which colony the New Haven jurisdiction had just been absorbed. On July 6, 1665, he was appointed Lieutenant of the Train Band at Guilford. Prior to that date, but after 1660, he and John Fowler were made the first deacons of the Guilford Church.

      On June 23, 1654, New Haven Jurisdiction raised a company numbering 133, commanded by Capt. Seeley, to cooperate with an army of 800 from all the United Colonies of New England, and George Bartlett was appointed to command the Guilford contingent of 17, with the rank of sergeant. On June 9, 1651, he was elected Marshal of the Plantation, succeeding Thomas Jones. In 1665 he was appointed, with Robert Kitchel, as "commissioner" for Guilford, and "invested with magestratical power." In 1649, he and John Hoadly, were appointed by the town of Guilford to build a cart bridge over East River, receiving L3 in English commodities, the rest in "country pay or works." A year previously he had been one of three men appointed to build a fence to keep the young cattle from the "herd's walk". Deacon Bartlett was married, by Mr. Samuel Desborough, to Mary, daughter of Abraham Cruttenden on Sept. 14, 1650. He died Aug. 2, 1669, and was buried the next day. His wife did not long survive, but died on Sept. 10, 1669. [1]
