From The Society of Descendants of Robert Bartlett of Plymouth, Mass web page

The Bartlett family, by tradition, is said to have been founded by one Adam Barttelot who was esquire to Guido de Brionne (or de Bryan). That lord came from the Liseux district of Normandy to England with William the Conqueror.

When the Conqueror divided the lands that he conquerored he gave Sussex to Earl Roger de Montgomerie. Tradition states that Adam Barttelot settled in Stopham and received lands there from his companion in arms, Earl Roger de Montgomerie. The Earl also gave the town of Stopham, in the Rape of Arundel and the Rotherbridge Hundred, to one Ralph. This was before surnames came into prominence. This Ralph took the name of that place as his surname and was seen living in Stopham in 1248 and was either the father of or identical with Sir Ralph de Stopham, who died seized of the manor of Stopham in 1271/2.

One descendant of this Adam Barttelot, John Barttelot, obtained a third of the manor of Stopham through his marriage with Joan de Stopham at the close of the Fourteenth Centurty. The manor was reunited in 1555 when William Barttelot purchased the remaining two-thirds. Thus they became the Lords of Stopham.

Much of this account has been taken from Dudley George Cary Elwes' book A History of the Castles, Mansions and Manors of Western Sussex (1876). Also The Visitations of the County of Sussex by Bruce Bannerman, published in The publications of the Harleian Society (Vol. 53 pg. 220 - 1905].

Researching and speculating on the early history of the Bartlett family makes a good parlor game. However, none of the foregoing accounts [not included] have been proven... The best we can say for certain is that (1) the progenitors of the Bartlett family came to England with William the Conqueror in 1066, (2) John Bartlett and his wife Joan and their descendants were in full possession of Stopham Manor [Sussex] and adjacent lands by 1379, and (3) by that date families carrying the Bartlett name were well established in a number of English counties, including Dorset.
