SOURCES AND BIBLIOGRAPHY


Bartholomew Allerton came on the Mayflower at the age of seven or eight, with his parents Isaac and Mary (Norris) Allerton.  Sometime after the 1627 Division of Cattle, he returned to England, taking up residence for a time in co. Norfolk before settling in Bramfield, co. Suffolk.  Bartholomew left behind several English records, including a couple of letters to Sir Philip Percival; a chancery lawsuit in 1657; and his will dated 15 October 1658.

In his will, he mentions his first wife Margaret; his second wife Sarah; and his children (without specifically naming them).  In Sarah's own will, she names her children Isaac, Mary, Dorothy and John, and mentions her brother John (who had the surname Fairfax).
