My Great Grandfather was Robert Bartlett of Burcott, Wells,Somerset and he was B 28-10-1845 and he had 2 brothers and 2 sisters .John, Edward,Emily and Susan. Robert immigrated to NZ around 1864 . Their Father was Joseph BartlettB.2.1.1820 , who had 2 sisters Eliza and Martha and a brother John B.18.7.1824 . I believe their Father was also Joseph ! All settled in around Wells , with Roberts Sister Susan going to Wales .
If I go back further Joseph B 25.03.1794 had two brothers John B 29.05.1790, Thomas B 12.04.1792 and sister Elizabeth B 26.08.1787 , then back to my GGG Grandfather Cornelius B.08.07.1764.His father was John Bartlett B.16.03.1742, his father was William B15.05.1720 , his father John Bartlett B 19.091698 . The last step back is to a Humphrey Bartlett who had 5 children Elizabeth , Thomas B29.01.1670 , Gamabeil , James and lastley ward of Humphrey Bartlett .
I know of no living relatives in the UK and would really like to make contact with anyone related living in the UK or elsewhere for that matter. My only connection to Somerset is a school exercise book of my Great Grandfather Robert Bartlett from his school in1859 Cherry Orchard , Burcott , Wells, Somerset. I wonder if the school is still there?
