Merge Warning There were at least two men named Robert Bartlett in 17th century New England.
1. Robert Bartlett, born England about 1603, came on the "Anne" to Plymouth Colony. Married Mary Warren, died in 1676.
2. Robert Bartlett, born England between 1603 and 1611, came on the "Lion", probably with Thomas Hooker. He lived at Hartford, CT then Northampton, MA. His wife's first name seem to be Anne. He also died in 1676.
Possibly the Robert Bartlett, baptized 27 May 1603 Puddleton, Dorset, son of Robert and Alice (Barker) Bartlett. This is not a proven fact. There are other contemporary Robert Bartletts found in English records. He Probably was born somewhere near the Warren and Walker families in Dorset since he came over on the Anne. A Richard Warren of Fordington had a daughter that married a John Bartlett prior to 1638.
Occupation: Cooper (or wine cooper)
He died at Plymouth between September 19 and October 29, 1676, possibly killed by Indians at Manomet Ponds, Massachusetts, which is a part of Plymouth (There is a Bartlett Pond in the vicinity.)
Pilgrim Hall Museum has a mini-biography and a documentary biography found at http://www.pilgrimhall.org/bartlettrecords.htm. As follows:
ROBERT & MARY WARREN BARTLETT

We know that Robert Bartlett was a passenger on the Anne because it is so reported in the 1623 Division of Land. Robert's future wife, Mary Warren (daughter of Mayflower passenger Richard Warren) also traveled to Plymouth with her mother Elizabeth Warren and her four sisters on the Anne.
In the following 1673 gift to his son, Joseph, Robert calls himself a "wine cooper".
