Edmund Bartlett of Earnley, son of Edmund  Bartlett of Earnley (the third or fourth and youngest son of Richard Barttelot of Stopham), husband of Elizabeth Gore (daughter of Richard) and father of Edward, Francis, Emma, an unnamed daughter and Clemence
He may be the "Edward" Barttelot who sold Earnley Manor to George Fenner in 1561.
The children of Edmund Barttelot and Elizabeth Gore supported by secondary sources are:-
The following details of events in Edmund's life are not currently well sourced.
He he was born 1539 at Earnley, Sussex, England and was the son of William Barttelot and Anne Covert. His marriage to Elizabeth Gore was in 1567 at Earnley, Sussex, England. He died in 1591 at Stopham, Sussex, England or Earnley, Sussex, England.
The Clemence Bartlet listed as a daughter in the Visitations appears to have married in 1542 and has therefore been disconnected from Edmund and his wife pending further clarification.
Other children are attributed to Edmund Barttelot and Elizabeth Gore at thepeerage.com as follows:-
These look to be based on the brothers listed for Edmund by Burke (see the extract quoted below).
Acquisition and disposal of the manor of Earnley
The Barttelot's of Earnley are a cadet branch of the family at Stopham. Note that the manor of Earnley first came into the family's hands when it was conveyed to an Edward Barttelot in 1495 and was held by them until a different Edward Barttelot sold it to George Fenner in 1561.
Spellings of the surname for the subject of this profile differ: the Visitations of Sussex titles the pedigree "Bartlett-Barttelot", whilst standardising on Bartlett within the pedigree; and Berry uses a range of spellings including Bartlett, Bartlott and Bartelott. The History of Parliament cites a family member as William Barttelot of Stopham MP for Sussex in 1435 and a document in the National archives is catalogued under the spelling of Edmund Bartelott, though this may refer to a different individual.
In general, the spellings Barttelot and Bartelott do appear to have been largely peculiar to the Sussex family, judging from the catalogue of the National Archives at Kew, however the spelling Bartlett was certainly also used, for example in a family will of 1639. There are also a few examples of the Barttelot and Bartelott spellings elsewhere in the country, e.g. in Bedfordshire, Somerset and Suffolk. The distinction may be of value in later sources, however, and clearly care should be taken in all circumstances.
Bartlett and Bartelott families in the US
The spelling of Bartlett is certainly more common. There were several, apparently unrelated, families by this name in early New England. Richard Bartlett probably came from Wiltshire. About 100 years ago a book was published that linked the two families, but the connection was shown invalid.
There are no known dna studies that prove that the Bartelott and other Bartlett families are from the same origin. Becky (Nally) Syphers 07:30, 29 November 2014 (EST)
Entry in Burke's American Families
Burke gives a bio of Edmund Bartlett and his sons. The following is a direct quote from the book:
Edmund Barttelot, of Ernley, Sussex, acquired estates in that parish from the Fenner family (Dallaways's Western Sussex, i, 27) who had held them during the greater part of the sixteenth century. He is not named in the pedigree recorded by his grandson, Edward Bartlett, of Ernley, and Redland at the Visitation of 1633/34 (Harleian MS 1562), but is there described as the fourth son of Richard Barttelot and Elizabeth Gates. He d. 1591, and according to the family pedigree had issue,
1. Edmund, of Ernley, mentioned at the Visitation of 1633/34, [married] Elizabeth, daughter of Richard Gore, and had issue,
I. Edward, of Ernley and Redland, recorded the arms of Barttelot of Ernley...and had issue.
2. John, b. inter 1580/90, sold his properties in Ernley in 1634, is believed to be identical with the John Bartlett who sailed from England in the Mary and John, in 1634, and settled in Newbury, Mass., where he pursured the calling of tanner, becoming a freeman in 1637. He d. 13 April, 1678, leaving by his wife Joane (d. Feb. 1679), a son,
John, b. in England; emigrated with his father; m. 5 Mar. 1660, Sarah, dau. of John Knight, and left issue, from whom descended the Bartletts of Newton, Mass., and of Bath, N. H.).
3. Richard, ancestor of the line of which we treat.
4. Thomas, b. 1580/90, probably the same Thomas who sailed on the Mary and John, in 1634; settled at Watertown, Mass.
The third son,
Richard Bartlett (or Barttelot), of Bartlett's Cove, in Newbury, Mass. (it is opposite Amesbury Ferry), where he settled with his brother, John (see above). He emigrated with his brothers, John and Thomas, and his sons, Richard and Christopher, and a dau., Joanna, being one of the earliest settlers at Newbury in 1635 (the year of its incorporation), where he was a shoemaker, b. 1580/90; d. 25 May, 1647, leaving issue,...
