BARTLETT of Newbury, Massachusetts

My original BARTLETT immigrant ancestor was Richard BARTLETT, who married Joan UNKNOWN of Wiltshire (she is sometimes styled "Joan DEWILTSHIRE").

Richard was born in Wiltshire, Sussex, England; the original spelling of his surname was BARTELLOT. The ancestral seat of the Bartellots is Stopham, England.

Richard and his family may have come over on the Mary and John in 1633, and settled in Newbury, Massachusetts. Richard was a shoemaker, and he died on 25 May 1647.
