I am a direct descendant of a John Bartle who's family owned a textile mill in Bradford.(I even have a sample of cloth woven there in the late 1800's).
The connection I believe is from John's son (?) Isaac bartle (b. in Yorkshire on May 30, 1829, d. May 9, 1894 in Newark, New Jersey, USA).Isaac married Mary Jane Smith of Wolverhampton (Jan 9, 1833 - April 23, 1913).
Isaac & Mary Jane had 14 children.Their eldest son, John H. Bartle (June 10, 1854 - April 29, 1936) married in Pennsylvannia USA.His wife was Ida Quick.
John & Ida had 4 children.Sadie Elizabeth was my great grandmother.
My Bartles left England and settled in New Jersey, USA.They then migrated to Montreal, Quebec, Canada.I live in Ottawa, Canada.
Is there a connection?I have more names & dates...
