Paul, I was browsing this forum and saw your posting. I wonder if your Bartley line come from Bartley near Southampton in England. I am looking out for information for a Bartley friend of mine from Jamaica who tells me that they are a big clan there. She is of African origin and I notice that there are several prominent African American Bartlets on the Internet. Do you know anything about the Bartley family origins? I work on a different set of families completly, and contribute to a site on related names at http://www.wykes.orghttp://www.wykes.org I may be able to help if you are looking for origins in the U.K.
