Robert & Mary Warren Bartlett
Robert Bartlett, designated a cooper in later records, arrived in Plymouth Colony on the Anne in 1623. During the 1627 Division of Cattle, he was unmarried and listed as part of Francis Eaton’s company. Probably around 1630, Robert married Mary Warren, daughter of Mayflower passenger Richard Warren and his wife Elizabeth Warren. Mary Warren had also been a passenger on the Anne. Robert and Mary Warren Bartlett had 8 children: Benjamin, Rebecca, Mary, Sarah, Joseph, Elizabeth, Lydia, whose birth on 8 June 1647 is noted in the Plymouth Colony Records (PCR 8:4), and Mercy, whose birth on 10 March 1650 was noted in the Plymouth Colony Records (PCR 8:11).
Robert’s name appears in the earliest list of freemen, dated 1633. His public service was limited to serving on juries and as surveyor of the highways. His legal dealings mostly centered on land transactions although, in 1660 he was summoned to court to "answare for speakeing contemptuously of the ordinance of singing of psalmes."
Robert died between September 19/29 1676 (date of his will) and October 29-November 8, 1676 when his will was probated. Click here for that will.
Mary died sometime after 1677, when she executed a deed for land. A document by her sons in 1683 refers to her as by then deceased.
