Bartlett fam­ily shares old sto­ries

Central and North Burnett Times - - OVER 50S -

The Bartlett fam­ily was once one of the best-known fam­i­lies at Ca­nia Gorge. The peo­ple at this fam­ily re­union, Michael Bunn, Dal­las Bunn, Clark Bartlett (seated) and Betty Bartlett, on Oc­to­ber 4, 1990, are de­scen­dents of Robert Bartlett, who was con­victed of rob­bery and shipped to Aus­tralia in 1827. He mar­ried Sarah Foster and they had three boys: Wil­liam, George and Ed­ward. Robert died in 1845, aged 40. Clark Bartlett lived at Cer­a­to­dus be­fore mov­ing to Ca­nia Gorge in 1936. In old age he moved to Monto and lived with his daugh­ter, Gwen Lit­zow. The hut where he lived is still in the park.
