What We Know About This Family

An Overview of Their Lives

ORIGINS: Robert Bartlett of Marblehead was the son of William Bartlett and his wife Edith Hayward in Frampton, England. Magdaline Bartlett deposed that he was the son of this William. I found baptism records for most of his siblings, but not for Magdaline or Robert. Robert's brothers, John and Faithfull, and his sister, Magdaline, also settled in Marblehead. John married Bethiah Devereux, the daughter of our direct ancestors John and Susannah Hartshorne Devereux and granddaughter of John Devereux, Sr., whose will was signed by Robert Bartlett.

Mary Walton was the daughter of a clergyman, and the granddaughter of two. She and Robert were married in Salem about 1665 and settled in Marblehead, where he was a yeoman and fisherman. I've been unable to determine if the "captain" in his title was a militia title or the mariner title. They built their dwelling home on land owned by Reverend Walton. After the death of both her parents, Robert paid 20 pounds for the relief of debt on the estate in exchange for half the lot, and by 1700 he owned the lot totally. In 1700, he also chaired a meeting in Dunstable. He owned 200 acres of land there and bequeathed it to two of his grandsons.

Three of the children married descendants of our direct ancestors:

After the death of Mary Walton Bartlett, Robert married the twice widowed Rebecca Greene Bubier, and they lived together until his death 15 years later. All but one of his known children survived him and received bequests of land in his will.

Proof of Relationship

Several family members left wills naming their children.

What Else We Need to Learn

The goal of this project is to trace every line of ancestry to the arrival of its first immigrant to America. The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.

The research on this family is basically complete.
