AdminHistoryBartelot was the son of the Revd Robert Leach Bartlett, and his family pedigree can be seen in Burke's Landed Gentry 1952. They descended from Adam Barttelot, of Sussex, fl 1295/6. It is possible to see that many of the original MSS here listed must have descended to him by intermarriages. At some point Richard Grosvenor Bartlett decided to adopt the more antique spelling of Bartelot, and his obsession with ancestry, particularly royal ancestry, is apparent in this collection of papers. He transcribed and published a number of Dorset parish registers, contributed to Somerset & Dorset Notes & Queries, wrote the History of Crewkerne School (1899), The History of Fordington (1915), and, with A M Broadley, The Three Dorset Captains at Trafalgar (1906). The final box also includes papers of Canon CH Mayo..
