The earliest record of the family in England starts with Richard Bartelot, a descendant of Adam Bartelot Esquire of Brian who came over with William The Conqueror. He was heir
to the estate of Stopham County, Sussex, England, and died in 1618, in France, leaving four sons, William, the eldest, succeeded to his father's estate and Edward, another son, inherited the Ernley Estate in the same county. Edward had four sons, Edmund, Richard, John and Thomas, who left England in 1634, and are stated to have come to America.

Thomas Bartlett, a descendant of one of these four, married Dolly Blaisdale in New England, some time in the 1750s. Their son, Ebeheezer, who was born, in 1758, married Mary Abbot, and Emory Bartlett, who later came to Sandy Creek to live, was their son, born in 1795.

Emory Bartlett first married Ruth Carlisle, the couple having one daughter, Jane. After the death of his wife the young widower moved from his New England home to Oneida County, N.Y., where he met Miss Urania Perry who became his wife in 1823. Emory and all-his family were Baptists. In politics he was a Whig until after the founding of the Republican party, when he allied himself with that. He was a blacksmith by profession and followed that trade when not engaged in work on his farm.

Five children were born to them, Perry, named for the mother's family, Hulda, Mary, Elizabeth and Frances.

In 1835 Emory, with his wife and six children, started west to Sandy Creek, traveling in wagons. They settled on the cross road leading off from the Orwell road to the north at the Stevens school house, purchasing a farm of seventy-five acyes above where the Miles Blodgett tannery afterwards stood. He built a blacksmith, shop nearby where he did work for the farmers of the neighborhood when not engaged with his fanning duties.

Later he sold this farm and bought the farm on the Orwell Road now owned by Claude Porter, building a new house. Here he died in 1855, at the age of 60 years and was buried in the Stevens cemetery*.

Of his children, Jane, the eldest, married Henry Lester, supervisor of the town of Boylston in 1845; four children, Emory, Harriett, Frances and Emerson being born to them.

Emory had three sons, Charles, Frances and Claude. Harriett married a man named Rowe and to them were born two sons, Bert and Fred. Frances, whose married name was Alden, had no children. Emerson left three sons, Ray, Harry and Lloyd.
