I believe siblings Ephraim Parker Bartlett (1812), Lydia Bartlett Waitley (1806), and Erastus Wilder Bartlett (1810) (and possibly others) moved from New York, where they were born, to Ohio around the 1830s. I have DNA connections to the descendants of all of them, but the descendants of Lydia believe her father was Aaron. The descendants of Ephraim believe his father was John, and my line, the descendants of Erastus believe his father was William. It could be this is correct and they were actually cousins, but I have not been able to prove any of this correct with New York records. Any suggestions are appreciated.

By the way, I am actually Linda Bartlett Shine. Bruce Bartlett is my 2nd cousin who took a Y-DNA test to try to help me find our great=great grandfather, who we believe to be James Acton. We've not had much luck with that either.

My original Bartlett surname immigrant ancestor was George Bartlett of Guilford, CT born in England abt 1620. My line of descent is Gary 11, Donald 10, Harold 9, D. Clarence 8, H. Russell 7, Hiram 6, Russell 5, Rev. Nathaniel 4, Daniel Jr. 3, Daniel Sr. 2, George of Guilford. Unfortunately, the English origins of George Bartlett who died in Guilford, CT in 1669, are unknown. What is known, is that many of the original settlers at Guilford - of whom George was likely one - hailed from the geographic area the the junction of the English counties of Kent, Sussex & Surrey. My hope in taking the Y-DNA test was to connect up genetically with some UK Bartletts in the intent of determining George Bartlett's English ancestry, but alas, that seems to be a pipe dream.

Welcome, Gary! My Bartlett immigrant ancestor was William Bartlett of the same place! Guilford, CT!, But he didn't arrive there until more than 60 years after George and more than 20 years after George had died! I know no one has ever discerned a family relationship between the 2 Bartlett families of Guilford. There has been no Y-DNA test on William's descendants yet, as far as I know. My late grandfather was the last male in my line... Maybe in future, we'll find out if there was a relationship or not between the two Bartlett families who started out in Guilford, CT in the 1600s!

A Bartlett cousin from William's line is going to England soon and she wants to include a visit to the Dorset area. That's one place where we suspect a maybe-plausible connection, with the Frampton area Bartletts... Having been able to have a y-DNA test done could have been helpful but neither of us have any living male Bartletts in our lines. :-(

We have some funds for a Y-DNA test that might show a link to the UK - We can share costs, or for a really good pedigree, we would pay for the test. I, too, would like to get a Match in the UK.

My line is through John Bartlett who was in Windsor CT by 1640. According to Savage John Bartlett of Windsor and George Bartlett of Guilford CT were brothers. I know of k\no evidence to support the assertion. Are you a match with the RW Windsor group?

There are 6 in the RG group (Warren Co, NC & UK) who give no details of themselves or their ancestry. This group all have the very rare DYS557=8 mutation. As far as I have been able to establish this does not occur outside the Bartletts of Devon. Is there any way to encourage these people to identify themselves and their forebears?

Oops, accidentally hit post button. as a PS to above post: I am very interested in connecting James (1760) with his ancestors and Steve you seem to be the best chance for that. Will look forward to a reply.

Steve Bartlett.. I think I 'feel your pain'! regarding no or insufficient info on the results list ... going then to the person's profile and they don't have one..and don't list any ancestors...and often enough, no contact info! If there were, like, a coordinator or two, or more!, for each group...then they contact each person to fill in the needed info. Right away, whenpeople first sign on, while they are still enthusiastic!... and where no info can/will be provided, code the slackers so the rest of us don't waste our time trying to reach them! ;-)

Not sure what information I have but new to the site. My 4th gr grandfather was born in Virginia but I don't have information to trace him. He Married Eliza Abbott in 1833 she was from Anderson Hamilton Ohio. I don't seem to find much on her family. They had a child William Bartlett and he is buried in a plot with his family and his mother Eliza, His brother John is my grandfather who married Rebecca Leatherman and moved to Indiana. My kit is B134628 I am not sure how to read the DNA yet hope to learn, My brother Charles also has a DNA but need to get the correct information. We are suppose to be in the Bartletts that there is no line established yet.

Hi, my kit is also in the RG Warren Co/UK group and I have spent a lot of time gathering information on the ancestry of the various kits. I will share what I have if it is helpful. I think I know the Bartlett ancestors of all the testers, at least back to 1750/1800. The challenge is that even with the kind upgrades of Claudette and another user, we still have several kits that are 12/25 markers and some of the testers are no longer reachable.

Hi My name is Jonathan Badham do any of you have Bartletts from Churchstanton Somerset/Devon

I think my Bartletts come from pretty close to Somerset. They seem to hail from Mosterton/South Perrott in Devon. My ggm was Dorothy Bartlett Hull so her mother was a Bartlett who married a Hull

Hi Jonathan, Valerie, and Ray! How about BIDEFORD, DEVON, BARTLETTs? any descendants of Nonconformist minister William Bartlett born ca 1609 or 1610 to died ca 1682? (and/or his son John)? William Bartlett was one of the estimated 2,500 ministers ejected in 1662. Wm. carried on his ministry in Bideford & was a founder of the Greet Meeting (later, Lavington church) in Bideford. Or... any descendants of Bartletts from EXETER, DEVON? More 1600s Nonconformists. Gosh, there were a lot of Bartletts in Devon in the ca 1600s time period!., not apparently related! or at least not discernibly related...

Kit 5960 (surname Bartlett) is a Y-112 match with me (kit 565792, surname Matthews) and we share common ancestors in the central Virginia area in the 1750s. Any thoughts on how these family lines intersected would be appreciated

LOL! Funny Bartletts (maternal) were not in VA as far as I know but my Huffs (paternal) were, and we have DNA matching on Huff.

My 4th great grandfather Curtis Barttlett was born in Virginia but unable to find more information prior to his birth @ 1810. He married Eliza Abbott in 1833. Not sure where this leads but its a shot.
Otto Hancock Otto Hancock has a question!
May 20 @ 9:59am
Does anyone know where Kit 520267 Ebenezer Bartlett got his I-M223 DNA from. My Kit B3466 Otto Hancock (whos GGGrandfather James Hancock) is very close to Ebenezer's. It is believed that James Hancock came from Devon - but no paperwork to back it up. Maybe our lines crossed somewhere in England.

Looking for a Co-Admin of this BARTLETT DNA Project. I started it in 2002. Pam White was a Co-Admin for several years, and, sadly, she has passed away. If interested, please email me at Thanks

Totally! IMHO, this project could use a bevvy of helpers! I don't even peek in here, hardly ever... The people I did contact back when I first signed on, and had to hunt for their email addresses because they didn't put them here. Once contacted, they said they never--at least rarely ever--even checked in here for various similar-themed reasons that had to do with "nothing happening"..."not well organized" (to be useful), etc. One person cannot do this on his own! Not--realistically--do it well, anyway! One or two persons for each line would be good... :-) :-) :-) Plus a person in charge of monitoring and nurturing the Comments section here and another person to "market" some "ads" in likely places/every now & again look around and point Bartlett query-posting folks who have posted on Ancestry, etc. to this project... Stuff like that. Delegating... breaking up responsibilities into manageable pieces... more than one person actively contributing ... could produce more/better outcomes... IMHO! :-)

I have decades of group management experience in muliple affinity and professional groups ... remember Usenet? haha, and even before that... so I do have ideas! LOL! I'd volunteer myself to take on whatever haplogroup my Bartletts are in...but don't know yet which haplogroup my Bartletts belong in! No living males since my grandfather died young in the 1950s. My time is still committed to looking for a living male from another line to take the y-DNA test... this is one of the could-be-betters about this of the things is that one just can't tell from the info as it appears here. So I'm doing it the old-fashioned way...bringing other lines, starting in the 1600s, down to the present. Or of course, stopping on a line when it has no more genetic males....which has happened a lot!
March 25 @ 11:39am
So, pardon my confusion, but my brother and I descend from the TN/NC branch where our earliest ancestor is William Bartlett (NC/TN 1784) we keep getting DNA 12 Matches with many people who are grouped in the Robert Bartlett 1603 VA, DNA group. Would that probably link us to this ancestor- possibly being a brother of someone earlier than William? I am new to DNA so I am confused by what this means? Can anyone help?
James Bartlett
March 30 @ 10:26pm
The Y-12 for R1b haplogroup is very common to many folks, across many surnames and lines. These Y-12 results cannot be used for any practical matching. Please ignore them.

Also is there a place on here for us to see how much percentage of different ethnics we are. I saw a graph pie shaped on a friends and they were able to see they were 10% French, 30 % Spanish ect

Considering that borders change or disappear, embracing a nationalist view might not make a lot of sense. Spanish and French aren't ethnicities, right?
