This profile is part of the Bartlett Name Study.

Steve and Brenda formed a French Civil Partnership (PACS) in July 2007 at the Palais de Justice in Rodez, the département de l'Aveyron. The PActe Civil de Solidarité is recognised as a spousal arrangement, but avoids the Napoleonic inheritance rules associated with a marriage in France. ALL marriages in France are civil insofar as they are carried by the local elected civil official, Le Maire ( the mayor). Religious officials have no right to solemnise marriage, only to "bless" it.
Born in Sussex just after WWII, soon moved to Essex and then to North Wales where I spent my childhood in Colwyn Bay. My maternal grandmother introduced me to genealogy and I still have her (beautifully) handwritten family tree.
After Cambridge University, went to Oxford to do a post-graduate teaching diploma and then taught for three years in Yorkshire before joining the pharmaceutical industry in which I worked for the rest of my career. Now retired and living in SW France, indulging in my hobbies of choral music, genealogy, and generally finding something to do that avoids doing something else.
Most of my sources are either from direct work with Parish registers, or from censuses accessed through I try to avoid using Ancestry family tree hints if they are un-sourced, although for childhood deaths that do not affect further generations I have added these without seeing the primary data.
I have written to Ancestry several times to correct poor transcription of documents. Florrie transcribed as Hortie was a classic. I have identified 31 of my 32 3gt grandparents and 46 of my 64 4gt. Therefore to give a list of surnames of interest would be boringly long.
At gt grandparent level:- Bartlett, Bunt, Lane, Lott, Henderson, Minor, McMinn, White. Bartlett & Bunt, Devon and Cornwall Lane and White, Worcestershire, Henderson & McMinn, Liverpool, Cumberland, Dumfriesshire. Lott, Suffolk. Minor, Nottingham, Derby, Northants.

Wikitree Stuff

  • Currently working with the Wales Project as Team Leader for the Wales Category Team

  • Edited and modified all the Welsh CIBs to include Wikishire
  • Did all the CIBs for Devon in 2019.


  • I have a great interest in DNA analysis and have had a complete review of my mitochondial DNA and a complete review of my yDNA (Big Y 700 with FTDNA)
  • I have also had an autosomal analysis at FTDNA
  • My yDNA has now been included in YFull's analysis

Digital Afterlife

In the event of my death or that I have become unable through physical or mental inability to continue my work within Wikitree, I place the profiles I manage into the caring hands of the Wikitree Admin and ask that any English profiles, including my own, first be offered to the Leadership and Members of the England Project. Likewise for Welsh profiles to the Wales Project. If any member(s) of my family have the desire to continue what I have started, I ask that they be allowed to manage those profiles and have the guidance to continue in the proper manner. Any locked profiles that I manage I believe to contain only information that can be found on the internet, so they may be dealt with as privacy would allow.

Steve thanks for correcting my tree on Alice Mary Crawford Barrow. I genuinely do not know what you've done, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong and your credentials are pretty damn good! It simply shows how little I know about the correct way to use this site!

Hi Steve,

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. I wanted to thank you for your work on English Profiles. These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the project leaders for everything you do!

Kindest Regards, Amy Utting

Hi Amy,

Thanks for your mail. I am totally engrossed at the moment with Susie giving the Wales Project some impetus. I am just finishing the eleventh county CIBs out of the thirteen. Busy enough, but looking forward to getting back to work on my English profiles. Steve

Hi Steve,

As you will have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the Wales Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address? I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders, are in the Google Group, and receive an invitation to join our Discord server.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the Wales Project that you respond to these check-ins.

Many thanks, Susie, Wales Project Co-Leader

Hi Steve,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Categories and Devon. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current teams and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

I noticed that you recently created profiles for some pre-1700 persons. There have recently been some updates to the Pre-1700 Profile help page and the Pre-1700 Quiz since you took it. Please review both and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. You will notice that the wording has been modified to more fully explain the sourcing required when creating pre-1700 profiles. We're looking for reliable sources to add to the various lists. Please let us know if you find sources which would be good additions

Hi Steve,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,


Hi Steve

On behalf of the England Project Leaders we're carrying out a check-in to see how all the members are doing and taking the opportunity to thank you for all your hard work over the past six months. We have been so impressed with the way everyone has rallied together and gone the extra mile to make this one of the most dedicated, productive and friendly communities on WikiTree. What are you enjoying most about being in the project? What would you like to see improved or changed? Would you like to continue in the project moving forwards?

We're looking forward to hearing back from you,

Susie, Gillian, Wendy and Amy

Hi Steve,

I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

Susie :-)
