Thomas BARTLETT was born about 1703.I don’t know his parents or where he was born or grew up. He married Elizabeth in the early 1720s and they lived in Lunenburg Parish, in the western part of Richmond County, Virginia. They had 7 or 8 children from 1724 to the 1730s who survived.Elizabeth died and Thomas married Catherine (perhaps an EIDSON) about 1841, and they had 1 or 2 more children in the early 1740s who survived. In 1742 Thomas bought 110 acres of farm land along the main (east-west) road of Richmond County, at the present location of Newland, VA. By the early 1750s four of their sons had married, and moved away to start their families, while the youngest son and all four daughters remained in Richmond County, married and raised families.In 1767 Thomas wrote his will, naming his wife Catherine and 9 children: John, James, Joseph, Thomas, Elisha, Anne JONES, Mary SCOTT, Bathsheba FONES and Sarah SCATES.Thomas voted in 1771.He probably survived most of the Revolutionary War period, as his will was probated in 1783.
