  • Notes 
    • "A Genealogical History of the Clark and Worth Familes": Richard Bartlett, born ca 1575, was a cordwainer and came to Newbury in 1635, very likely in the company of Rev. Parker from Wiltshire. Richard Bartlett brought his children, and judging from their birth dates, he was probably married twice in England. His son John's name appears on the passenger list of the Mary and John. They bought land at what ever since has been called Bartlett's Cove near Chain Bridge and opposite Amesbury Ferry, and records show that they were men of education, ability and influence. Richard Sr. brought from England a rare Breecher Bible he had purchased in 1612, as well as other books. This edition of the Bible contained the Book of Common Prayer, a Concordance, and Psalms set to music. According to tradition, the Bartletts were a music-loving family. Richard Sr., an Elder of the church of Newbury, died May 20, 1647, after a long illness; his will prob. September 28. He was the ancestor of the Hon. Josiah Bartlett, President and first Governor of New Hampshire and second signer of the Declaration of Independence.
