      I see no hint that this Thomas BARTLETT was born in Richmond Co, VA - the Thomas BARTLETT b 1705, and first appearing about 1726 in Richmond Co, VA stayed in that county his whole life and his will was probated there in 1783. It's much more likely, although not proved, that this Thomas BARTLETT was son of Thomas BARTLETT b c1670 of Essex Co, VA - there are a couple of records indicating the a Thomas BARTLETT Jr in Essex county in early 1700s.
