    • Bartholomew Heath was a 'yeoman', and brother of John Heath, and setled in Newbury, Massachusetts, first, before removing to Haverhill about 1645 In 1646, he was listed a proprietor, and in 1650, when considerable grants of land were made to Haverhill men on the Merrimac River, Bartholomew Heath was one of those to receive land. In 1652, and thereafter, other grants ere made to him. In 1657, he made a disposition, at the age of "about forty-one years." His sons, John, Joseph, and Josias, received land deeded by him, march 12, 1688-89.

      The American Ancestor of the heath family of Amsterdam, New York, was Bartholomew Heath, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, who settled there prior to 1645. He was of English birth and ancestry, although there is no definite record of the date of his arrival or the place from which he came. He most likely arrived in America with other members of the family and was temporarily located in some of the smallest settlements, where there were o early records kept until 1645, when he appears in Haverhill. Elder Isaac Heath, of Roxbury, came in the ship "Hopewell," 1635. His brother, William, of Roxbury, came from London in the ship "Lion", 1632, with wife Mary and five children. There is no evidence that he was related to these men, but the probability is that he was. Bartholomew had a brother, John Heath, who left bequests to the children of his brother, but named in his will no family of his own. He was also of Haverhill. .... [1, 2]
