Bartlett Surname Name Meaning, Origin, History, & Etymology
This popular last name, patronymic in origin, developed from the Middle English personal (first) masculine given name Barlet, a reduced or pet form of Bartholomew, which was originally a Jewish name that derives from an Aramaic name meaning “son of Talmai”, with bar being the Aramaic word for son, with Talmai coming from either telem, meaning furrow (rich in land), or could be a Hebrew version of the names Ptolemy (ancient Greek) or Filius. Hence, Bartholomew literally translates to “son of furrows” or “son of Ptolemy”. The most famous bearer of this first name was Bartholomew, one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus Christ, who according to tradition, traveled as a missionary to India before returning to Armenia, where he was martyred by flaying. He was the saint of tanners, vintners, and butlers. The popularity of this saint caused many people in England to adopt the name during the Middle Ages, and from there it became a patronymic (son of) surname.
The family first rose to prominence in Sussex, England. According to author Evelyn Philip Shirley, in his 1866 book, The Noble and Gentle Men of England, “the head of this family, according to Dallaway, may be considered one of the most ancient proprietors of land residing upon this estate in this county. The first in the pedigree is Adam de Bartelott, said to be of Norman origin, father of John, who married Joan Stopham, coheiress of lands in the manor from whence the name is derived”. Adam was a minor nobleman and the personal esquire to a Norman knight named Guido de Brionne. The following except from Aylesworth.net states the following: “Guillaume, Duke of Normany, has decided to carry out an invasion of England. All those owing him their allegiance and others wishing to attend were called to serve. Guido de Brionne was one commanded to assemble with his men and materials. This included Adam de Berthelot. When the Normans landed on the beaches of Pevensey near Hastings in Sussex on September 19, 1066 Adam de Berthelot and Guido de Brionne were among them“.
Another author, Mark Antony Lower, in his 1860 book, titled Patronymica Britannica, states the following: “The Barttelots of Stopham have a tradition that they came into England at the Conquest, and settled at a place called La Ford, in that parish, in which they still reside”.
