John Bartram
Birth: May 23, 1699
Darby
Delaware County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 22, 1777
Darby
Delaware County
Pennsylvania, USA

John Bartram, s/o William and Elizabeth (Hunt) Bartram, was married (first) to Mary (Maris) Bartram with whom he had 2 sons, Richard and Isaac Bartram, and (second) to Ann (Mendenhall) Bartram with whom he had 9 children, James, Moses, Elizabeth, Mary, William, Elizabeth, Ann and Benjamin Bartram. John built his home on the Schuykill River about 1729. Though a farmer by trade, he was interested in the nature of plants from early on. Through the assistance of friends in England, namely John Collinson and Benjamin Franklin, he was appointed botanist to King George in April 1765. Alone and accompanied by his son, William, on horseback and on foot, John explored much of eastern Pennsylvania, down through Virginia into the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida in search of new botanical specimens. John was a member of the Society of Friends (Quaker) and raised his children in that faith.
