Named R. De Butuileyn in the Battle Abbey Roll (Foxe).
Peter Barttlet of Australia says: "the elder son of Adam de Berthelot wasnamed Robertus de Ba rtelot and is thus recorded in two 11th centurydocuments that help to explain why, upon the d eath of his father, Robertgave up his birthright in favour of a younger brother, Radolphus (R alph)who promptly adopted the name by which the land grant the family thenoccupied was known. ....and with it a somewhat different coat-of-arms,thus helping researchers to distinguish bet ween the two brothers andtheir descendants. Robert chose a more adventurous and rewarding lif ewith the de Brionne family, accepting his father's responsibilities asEarl Guido de Brionne' s (of Brionne Castle, Liseux) trusted Esquire, butwhich Adam could no longer fulfill as a gra ntee of land owing fealty tothe Lords of Arundel Castle. What is important is the presence o f bothBartelot name and c.o.a, in Dorset so early after Robert's decision notto accept Stopha m....his birthright!"
7th in decent from Prince Berthelot, nephew to the Emperor Charlemagne.In A.D. 1066, he cam e to England as a Squire to Brian de Stopham andfought in the battle of Hastings in the Conqu eror's Army. Battle AbbeyRoll names him Berteulay i.e. "the French Bertolet". He was grantedS topham Manor in Sussex Co., England. Adam was buried there c. 1086. TheCuria Regis Roll quote s the spelling as "Bertelot".
Peter Bartlett from Australia says: "The English progenitor of the linefrom which we both des cent was named "Adam de Berthelot" and came fromthe Norman District of Liseux. Due to the dif ficulities experienced byAnglo-Saxon scribes in interpreting sounds they heard from French mo uths,that name became, firstly written as "Adam de Bertuilay" and then "deBartelot".....altho ugh in some particular places in England it becamecorrected to the original. In each form, th e name appears on some ofEngland's earliest historical records as well as elsewhere."
