This is my 3rd great grandfather. I had no information on until now.
William Wilcox was a witness to the marriage of James Ward of the English Settlement, Studholm Parish, Kings County, NB, Canada in 1828, at which time the minister, Rev. H.N. Arnold of Trinity Church, Sussex, noted in the Parish register that William Wilcox was “commonly called William Bartlett.” The Bartlett surname is a reference to John and Elizabeth Bartlett, Sr. of the English Settlement. John Bartlett, Sr. was born in 1766, Cornwall, England. John's wife Elizabeth was born in 1777 in England. It is surmised that Elizabeth might have been William Wilcox's mother, a widow of William Wilcox's father (name unknown), which is why William sometimes used the Bartlett surname after his mother married John Bartlett, Sr. It should also be noted that William named his first daughter Elizabeth. The Bartlett and Wilcox families stayed close as many descendants married each other, including Charles Wilcox, son of William and Jane (Wilson/Jackson) Wilcox, who married Mary Ann Bartlett, daughter of John and Francis (Sargeson) Bartlett, Jr. John Bartlett, Jr. was a son of the aforementioned John and Elizabeth Bartlett
Does anyone out there have more information that might help me?
