About Bartholomew Heath

Much of the Information I have about this line of Heaths is derived from "Bartholomew Heath of Haverill, Massachusetts, and Some of His Descendants," Valerie Dyer Giorgi, Santa Maria, CA, 1994.

Progenitor of the line in America. He was a "yeoman" and brother of John Heath. Settled in Newbury, Mass., removed to Haverhill, Mass. 1645.

In 1646 he was listed as a proprietor, and in 1650 when considerable grants of land were made to Haverhill men on the Merrimac River, Bartholomew Heath was one to receive land. In 1652, and thereafter, other grants were made to him. In 1657, he made a disposition, at the age of "about forty-one years." His sons, John, Joseph and Josias, received land deeded by him, March 12, 1688-89. Mention of Bartholomew Haeth is made in connection with most of the town affairs, and he appears to have been a town officer. On March 28, 1682, an inventory of his estate was taken.(p. 23)

May have had a brother, John at Haverhill, but he left no issue. Died 1675 - will named no family of his own.

Married about 1643 Hannah Moyce/Mayes

Son John, born 1643 in Newbury; then moved to Haverhill and had two more sons, Joseph and Josiah (1651-?).

Deeded land 12 Mar 1668-9 to his sons, John, Joseph and Josiah.

The American ancestor of the Heath family of Amsterdam, New York, was Bartholomew Heath, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, who settled there prior to 1645. He was of English birth and ancestry, although there is no definite record of the date of his arrival or the place from which he came. He most likely arrived in America with other members of the family and was temporarily located in some of the smallest settlements, where there were no early records kept until 1645, when he appears in Haverhill. Elder Isaac Heath, of Roxbury, came in the ship "Hopewell," 1635. His brother, William, of Roxbury, came from London in the ship "Lion," 1632, with wife Mary and five children. There is no evidence that he was related to these men, but the probability is that he was. Bartholomew had a brother, John Heath, who left bequests to the children of his brother, but named in his will no family of his own. He was also of Haverhill. This branch of the family migrated to New Hampshire, where they are of frequent mention. In the town of Hampstead, they were both numerous and prominent. The revolutionary rolls of New Hampshire bear the names of twenty-three Heaths who served in the continental army, and they are particularly noticed as being present at noted battles. (See vol xvi N. H. State papers, vol iii. Rev. Rolls Index, p. 757.)

He is the first of the line under consideration and the emigrant ancestor. The family remained in Haverhill until the migration to New Hampshire of John, grandson of Bartholomew, "the founder."
