Bartholomew Dameron was born about 1645 in England, perhaps in Ipswich Parish in Suffolk. He immigrated with his parents, Lawrence Dameron and Dorothy at a young age. His father received a land patent in Northumberland County in 1652. Lawrence Dameron died before 1658 and in his will he left 500 acres of land to Bartholomew:
"I bequeath my soule to God, my creator and my body to the earth. I bequeath unto my sonne Bartholomew Dameron one halfe of five hundred acres of land situated in Great Wicocomoco which I bought of Mr. Peter Knight, the said land to be enjoyed peaceably by said Bartholomew and his heirs for ever, and to be delivered to him at the death of his mother with one cedar Bedstead, one long table with forme and benches to it, and one Couch, all which stands in the Great Roome.”
Bartholomew married about 1666 to Elizabeth, possibly Elizabeth Garlington, daughter of Christopher Garlington. They had as many as eight children.

Court records show that Bartholomew had a number of indentured servants. In August 1678 John Marshall and William Laurence, indentured servants of Bartholomew, were found guilty in Northumberland County Court for absenting themselves from their master's service from May 13th to June 14th. Each man was charged 1,000 pounds of tobacco. Roberta & John, orphans of Symon Bashford were bound to serve Bartholomew on September 22nd, 1704. Bartholomew agreed to feed and cloth the children and teach them to read the Bible.

Bartholomew wrote his will on August 1st, 1708 and appears to have signed with his own hand. The will was proven later that same year. Bartholomew is thought to be buried in the cemetery at the area now known as Dameron Marsh.

In his will Bartholomew divided up his land between his five sons. Bartholomew, John and Christopher received land in the lower portion of Northumberland around the Dameron Marsh area. Lawrence and Josiah were given land in "Mattapony," on the northern border of Northumberland County. Batholomew described the land as "Land in Mattapony which my father bought of Mr. Thomas Broughton by patent three hundred and forty two acres" and as being "up the Neck." Apparently Bartholomew had already given land in Mattapony to Lawrence because in the will he says "I give unto my son Lawrence one cow and calf besides what I have already given him, carryed to his plantation."
