I descend from Thomas BARTLETT c1705-1783 of Richmond Co, VA, and have studied Richmond Co, VA records in the 1700s extensively.I have found no record of a Mary Hawkins BARTLETT or a Benjamin BARTLETT in Richmond Co, VA, ever.I would really like to know of any record that refers to either of them.It appears there might be one dated 1 Oct 1786?? (I have also scrolled the microfilms of the Richmond Co, VA Pers Prop Tax Lists from 1782 to 1850, and extracted every name that remotely looked like BARTLETT...)
I do have in my notes (from a May 2002 email) a Mary Hawkins BARTLETT m John F FITZGERALD and was from the Goochland, Amherst, Albemarle Co, VA area 1742-before 1799; but the only other BARTLETT in the area at that time was a Geo BARTLITT who witnessed a 1743 deed in Goochland Co, VA, so I'm not sure who her parents were.
There is a Tabitha BARTLETT bc1742 Goochland (Amherst part) m 1755 Albemarle Co, VA Joel CASH; and a Nancy BARTLETT b 1750 Albemarle Co, VA [per IGI] - so it appears there was a BARTLETT family living in this area.
Please let me know if you can connect any of these dots...
