The Bartlett Family of Pilton from 1864 onwards

The Bartlett Family of Pilton from 1864 onwards /media/flashcomm?action=mediaview&context=normal&id=808

This photograph shows the family of William and Jane Bartlett (née Baker) of Pilton in about 1910. Their family has links to many North Devon families - Sanders, Passmore, Hobbs and Huxtable, amongst others.
William and Jane were married in St Mary’s Church, Pilton, in October 1885. The photograph was sent to The Pilton Story by Brenda Parsley, their great grand-daughter. The family members in the photograph are:
Back row (left to right): Edwin ‘Ned’ Bartlett (1892-1926), Frederick Thomas Bartlett (1890-1955) and William Henry Bartlett (1886-1955, Brenda’s grandfather),.
Front row (left to right): Thomas Bartlett (1894-1948), Frank Bartlett (1905-1977), William Bartlett (1864-??), Jane Bartlett (1865-1947), Albert Bartlett (1899-1941), Jane ‘Jennie’ Bartlett (1896-1986) and Minnie Bartlett (1901-1962).
William and Jane Bartlett also had a son, Joseph, who was born in 1888 and died in 1889 age 17 months. This archive entry also cross-references with the entry about Jane Bartlett who lived at No 8 Pilton Quay at the bottom of Pilton Street before it was demolished in the 1960s. It stood where the two flower tubs and the ‘Pilton’ mosaic can now be found.
