What We Know


I've seen the wife of William Bartlett given in many genealogies on the Internet as Edith Hayward, however the LDS record which appears below is the only source I could find other than private genealogies.

William's daughter Magdalin apparently deposed that her father was also the father of Captain Robert Bartlett of Marblehead. That John Bartlett of Marblehead was also his son is sourced by LDS.


It is unknown whether William and Edith were ever in America. The LDS record shows her as being born in Marblehead in 1624, but I deem this as impossible since Marblehead didn't exist that early.

There are records of a William and Faithful of the right ages being in Massachusetts in the mid 1600s, but no further proof.

Robert and John however married in Marblehead, had children there, and died there, leaving records which authenticate those facts for us.
