Thomas Bartlett, Mayflower Child?

DNA has proven that Thomas Bartlett who married Margaret Brent is my ancestor and by the way how exciting is it to have DNA confirm your paper trail? But now a rumor surfaces that Thomas is a descendant of the Mayflower? My first guess of course, is from Richard Warren whose daughter Mary married Robert Bartlett who came over on the Ann, or is it Anne? Now as Robert was born around 1603 and Thomas was born about 1645ish, the relationship should be easy to find right?

Well, have not found a birth for Thomas but his son William was born about 1690 and apprenticed out at the age of eight, so Thomas must have been born about 1670 or earlier and his wife Margaret? She is rumored to be born about 1645. Now she may have married a younger man but what are the odds right? Thomas Bartlett AKA Thomas Berkeley is rumored to be born about 1635 but his son William is proven by documentation to be born about 1690 when his mother is rumored to be about 45 and his father is rumored to be about 55. Highly possible, but unproven.

Now if Robert was born at 1603 and Thomas may have been born about 1635 this would mean that Thomas is most likely a son of Robert or he was born later and is a grandson. Right? It works in theory but the sources for Robert Bartlett's descendants dont mention a son or grandson named Thomas....

Furthermore, Robert was born in England and died in Plymouth while Thomas was in Stafford County,  Virginia in 1690 and in Westmoreland County in 1667 and in 1676 Thomas is mentioned in his father in laws will.
