Notes for Elizabeth (Betty) Bartlett
We know that John Bartlett Burt’s parents were John Burt and Elizabeth.130,161
Furthermore, a marriage for John Burt and Elizabeth Bartlett is posted in the International Genealogy Index files, although admittedly it was a member-contributed entry rather than original church record.90 The time, location and fact of this Elizabeth’s maiden name initially formed the basis of the assumption that they are John Bartlett Burt’s parents, and therfore that Elizabeth’s maiden name was Bartlett. This was then verifed by Geoff Hallett:
“Parish Record - Marriage, Bartlett, Betty. "Norton sub Hambdon PR
John Burt junr of the parish of Montacute and Elizabeth Bartlett of this parish banns
Married 15 March 1790 both signed
In presence of John Dore, Thomas Bartlett.
Witness Thomas is her brother and John Dore is from East Chinnock."164

From her son John Bartlett Burt’s biography:
“His parents were members of the Church of England; ... his mother was a devout woman, to whose instructions and prayers her son was accustomed to refer, when himself old and grey-headed, as the first occasion of his conversion...Looking back on these early years, over half a century, Mr. Burt felt that he had learned much evil from his early association with the rougher workmen in his father’s emplyment, but had been kept from the practice of the evil he learned by his mother’s prayers and instructions.”161
