    Notes 
    • From “Newbury and the Bartlett Family”, by John Coffin Jones Brown, Esq., of Boston, published in the April 1886 issue of the New England Historic Genealogical Society Register:
      “Richard Bartlet was prominent in church affairs, after Rev. Thomas Parker had changed his attitude in relation to church government and discipline. ... We can judge of the respect felt towards him in Newbury by the fact that he was its delegate to the General Court for many years, beginning with 1679; this was shared by the neighboring towns. Havehill had been greatly troubled for want of proper accommodation from those to whom its mill-privileges had been granted, but who had not ffulfilled their agreements to the town’s people; to remedy the evil, in 1678, “the town unanimously voted, that Richard Bartlett of Almsbury be granted the privilege to set a saw-mill in Haverhill, on the north meadow river.’” Barlett lived near the Haverhill line, and we presume that his mill was built on the site of what are now known as Peaslee’s Mills...He agreed, among other conditions, that he should pay the regular rates (that is, taxes) at Haverhill.
      It appears by his will.. that he had, while living, given liberaly of his real estate to each of his sons; the writer does not know to which of them he gave the house in Amesbury...
