Ann Charlotte Bartholomew (died 1862), was an English flower and miniature painter, and author.

Bartholomew was the daughter of Arnall Fayermann and niece of John Thomas, bishop of Rochester. She was born near the beginning of the nineteenth century at Loddon, Norfolk. In 1825 she published a farce (first acted at the Marylebone Theatre in May 1849) with the title It's only my Aunt. In 1827 she married the composer Walter Turnbull.

As his widow she published in 1840 the Songs of Azrael and other poems. In the same year she became the second wife of the flower painter, Valentine Bartholomew. She wrote one other play, which appeared in 1845, with the title of The Ring, or the Farmer's Daughter, a domestic drama in two acts. She occasionally exhibited flower or fruit pieces, and showed at the Royal Academy.[1] The British Museum has one beautiful water-colour drawing of this kind; but her main employment was miniatures for brooches and jewellery.

She last exhibited in 1856 and 1857, and died 18 August 1862.
