She moved to Somerset, married in 1843, survived her husband by 30 years and died in 1911 at the grand old age of 96.
I am trying to build up a clearer picture of this Bartlett family in Poole and neighbourhood. According to family lore, they are supposed to have come from Lytchett Matravers, where a) they were connected with the Rockley family, and b) the family was wiped out from "black death".
I have not been able to verify any of this yet, and Joseph was apparently born in Wareham. If anyone can help I can supply more details of what I've already found out. I have a copy of a photograph of this dignified old lady sitting outside her cottage door, taken around 1900, and I'd love to find out more about this side of my family. [ Tony Woodward ]

I am looking for information about my GG Grandfather, William Brown who came to Newfoundland from England. His marriage certificate lists him as a native of "Didget, near Poole, Dorset" but doesn't give any other information. I have learned that "Didget" is probably Lytchett, and that in Lytchett Minster there were Brown's in abundance.
In 2000, a contact in England provided me with some Lytchett Minster births from the 1760's to 1806, but I think that my GGGrandfather may have been born a few years later as he was married on October 25, 1833 in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland. There was a Richard and Mary(Slead)Brown m. Sept. 20, 1803 who had sons: John, baptized on Dec. 25, 1804 and Richard, baptized on Dec. 25, 1806.
I am wondering if anyone can tell me if they had other children after 1806. My William m. Elizabeth Rodway and had; Marianne b. 1834, James b. 1837, Richard b. 1840 and Stephen b. 1847. There may have also been other children.
My BROWN family names of Richard and Stephen were not very common names at that time but there were several in Lytchett Minster which leads me to believe that I may find my GGgrandfather's family here. I would appreciate any information that you may provide. Thank you! [ Bonnie ]
