Origins of surname

This is a double diminutive form of 'Bart, Bert', a pet form of Bartholomew, plus the diminutive suffixes '-el' and '-ot'; hence, 'Bart-, Bert-el-ot'. Bartholomew itself originates from a medieval English name which ultimately derives from the Aramaic patronymic 'bar-Talmay', son of Talmay, a given name meaning 'having many furrows', that is, rich in land. As a given name in Christian Europe, its popularity is due to the apostle St Bartholomew, the patron saint of tanners, vintners and butlers. The surname first appears in records in the mid 12th Century.

Early records

The surname Bartele, which appears in an early 14th century Jersey record, may or may not be a variant of Bartlett, which first appears in church records over 350 years later. There are just two baptisms in St Helier in 1671 and 1690, and then a gap until 1808.

Variants

  • Bartele, 1309
  • Bartlett
