Contact: Mrs Jennifer Bartlau
The Bartlau name seems to be fairly rare. So far, the only countries in which it is found today are Germany, Australia, England, and the United States. That statement is subject to change as this One Name Study grows!
Bartlau is first found with any certainty in East Prussia in the early 18th century. The variant Bartelau pre-dates Bartlau in East Prussia by 50 years or so. The family history indicates that it was originally French Huguenot, and that the families fled persecution in France in the mid-1600s.
