GEORGE LITTLE and BENJAMIN LITTLE, brothers, were merchants of London, and emigrated from that city about the year 1630, or between that year and 1640, to Newbury, Essex county, Massachusetts. Benjamin's children settled in West Newbury, at Craneneck Hill, and many of his descendants are there in that vicinity to this day. (1st Gen.)

George Little had sons, Benjamin, Silas, and John.

A grandson of George Little, by the name of Nathaniel Little, had two sons, Tristram and Henry, who were still living (in 1848) on the old homestead of George and Benjamin Little, in Newbury. Tristram married Sally Little, daughter of David, son of Samuel Little, of New Hampshire. Henry also married a Little.

George Little's son Benjamin settled in the vicinity of Newbury, and his family spread out into New Hampshire.

He had a son Samuel Little, who married, and had six sons and four daughters, viz.: Abner, Stephen, Joshua, David, Jonathan. and Jacob; and daughters, Elizabeth, Polly, Abigail, and Sally, Sally married John Webster.

JONATHAN LITTLE, (son of Samuel,) married Dolly, a granddaughter of Benjamin Little, 2d, and had five sons, but no daughters, viz.:

Joseph, born 26th July, 1789, lived at Atkinson, Rockingham county, New Hampshire. He married Rebecca Webster, daughter of John Webster and Sally Little.

2. Stephen married Betsey _____ .

3. John married Louisa Caleff, grand-daughter of Silas Little.

4. Jonathan studied physic, and died at 28 years.

5. David married Louisa Peasley.

JOSEPH LITTLE, (son of Jonathan,) and Rebecca Webster, had children:

1. John.

2. Jonathan.

3. Elbridge Gerry, born 11th Nov. 1817, graduated at college, studied theology at Princeton. He married Sarah E. Coleman, daughter of Daniel Coleman, Esq., of Newburyport; she died 28th March, 1851, aged 27 years. He is preaching in New England.

4. David.

5. Joseph Francis.

6. Laurana.

JOHN LITTLE, (son of George,) left home to seek his fortune, and went to Barnstable or Martha's Vineyard, and thence to Long Island, and from thence the family knew not where. But soon after 1665, Philip Carteret, Governor of New Jersey, sent messengers through all the adjoining provinces to invite settlers. These came in considerable numbers from New England and Long Island. And in 1676, we find John Little in Elizabethtown, a purchaser of land of the proprietors.

George Little patented 100 acres in Woodbridge, 18th March, 1669, and John Little, of Elizabethtown, obtained "a warrant, survey, and patent for 134 acres of land bounded on Staten Island Sound, or Great River," of the New Jersey proprietors, dated the 9th day of December, 1676.

John Little, as one of the freeholders of Elizabethtown, also obtained lot No. 6 of Corson's survey of the Elizabethtown lots above the first mountain, containing 196 acres, adjoining and lying directly north of Peter Willcocks's 400-acre tract, surveyed 6th January, 1736-7.

I have assumed that John Little, the son of George Little, is the ancestor of the large number of the descendants of Samuel Little in New Jersey. One fact I will adduce as almost conclusive evidence of it. It is the similarity of names in their descendants.


1st Generation, GEORGE LITTLE.

2d, Benjamin Little, Silas Little, John Little.

3d, Samuel Little, of New Hampshire, and Nathaniel Little, grand-grandson of George.

3d, Samuel Littell, of New Jersey.

4th, Abner, Stephen, Joshua, David, Jonathan, Jacob, Elizabeth, Polly, Abigail, and Sally. (10)

4th, John, Samuel, Joseph, James, Benjamin, Daniel, David, Jonathan, Sarah, Abigail, Catherine, Elizabeth, Martha, Nathaniel. (14)

5th, Joseph, Stephen, John, Jonathan, David. (5)

5th, Andrew, David, Nathaniel, Samuel, Catherine, Elizabeth. (6)

6th, John, Jonathan, Elbridge Gerry, David, Joseph, Laurana. (7)

6th, John, Hugh, Polly, Luther, Nancy, Betsey, Huldah, and David. (8)

I have italicised the names common to both branches of the family for six generations, in one line, which I think will be strong evidence of being descended from the same ancestor. John or Samuel, of New Jersey, may have changed the spelling of the surname to Littell.

NOTE.--The Rev. Mr. Hunting, in his general history of Westfield, says that Andrew, Anthony, Abraham, Absalom, Moses, and John Littell, resided at the Willow Grove, in Westfield.

JOHN LITTLE, (son of George,) was most probably the father of SAMUEL LITTELL, of Essex county, who was born about the year 1780, and married Lydia Bonnel, and had children: (4th Gen.)

1. Elizabeth. 

2. Martha. 

3. John.

4. Samuel, Jun., it is said, died a bachelor.

5. Joseph. 

6. James.

7. Benjamin married Susan Tucker, of Elizabethtown.

8. Daniel married Miss Acorn.

9. David married Susannah Craig, daughter of Alderman Andrew Craig. [See Craig.]

10. Jonathan. 11. Sarah. 12. Abigail. 13. Catherine.

14. Nathaniel; and two others, who died young.

I have not ascertained with certainty whether Anthony Littell was son or brother of Samuel Littell, or whether the Andrew Littell, the father of Polly, William, and Ephraim, was son of John or of Anthony. This I remember, that the families of Andrew and Doct. Anthony Littell, both claimed kindred with the family of David Littell, son of Samuel.

ANDREW LITTELL, a grandson of Samuel, and I suppose, from his age, son of John Littell, the eldest son of Samuel, he having died in 1784, an old man. His wife's name was Molly, who lived several years a widow, and died a very old woman; or he may have been a son of Anthony Littell, who was probably a son or brother of Samuel. They lived in Stony Hill Vallay, where James Bryson now lives. (5th Gen.)

They had five children, Polly, William, Ephraim, Sophia, and Temperance.

1. Polly married Zachariah Van Sickle, 30th October, 1763, and had children: (6th, 7th Gen.)

5. Sophia, who married, 25th June, 1775, Asa Frazee, son of Joseph Frazee, of Connecticut Farms. [See Joseph and Asa Frazee.]

ANTHONY LITTELL lived at the head spring of the west branch of Green Brook, in Stony Hill Vallay. In looking over old deeds, one was found, dated 20th May, 1708, from Henry Norris, and Joanna, his wife, to Anthony Littell, for a first lotright of land, formerly of Benjamin Homan, conveyed by said Homan to Henry Norris, and by Henry Norris, of the first part, to Anthony Littell.

Another conveyance intended to convey a moiety or half part of that 100-acre lot, No. 88 additional, taken up on the right of Joseph Thompson, son of Aaron Thompson, from Absalom Littell, millwright, to Andrew Littell, weaver, dated Feb. 1st, 1743-4, Lot No. 88 additional lies at the head of the west branch of Green Brook. Also a quit-claim from Abraham Littell, carpenter, and Andrew Littell, weaver, to Absalom Littell, millwright, dated April 2d, 1843, for a lot of land, &c., devised to said Abraham Littell and Andrew Littell, parties of the first part, by the will of their father, Anthony Littell, deceased, dated 9th Oct. 1731, excepting therefrom a certain lot of land the parties of the first part had previously conveyed to Robert Littell. This last conveyance was only executed by Abraham Littell, and was cancelled by Absalom Littell 19th Feb. 1750.

Thus it seems that Anthony Littell had sons, Abraham and Andrew, and perhaps Absalom and Robert, and may have had a son Anthony, the father of Doct. Anthony Littell, who lived where his father, Anthony Littell, lived.

DOCT. ANTHONY LITTELL lived at the head of the west branch of Green Brook. He died May, 1798. His mother died 13th Jan. 1784. Doct. Anthony Littell married Anna Maxwell, daughter of Caleb Maxwell, son of Samuel Maxwell, of Boston, and had children:

1. Caleb M. Littell, who married Mary Clark, daughter of Joshua Clark, of Westifield.

2. Elizabeth, born 22d May, 1790, who married, 14th Oct. 1848, William Hand, son of Hezekiah. [See Hand.]

3. Amos, who inherited his father's farm of 257 acres, and sold it to Ezra Miller, of Westfield. He died at 28 years, unmarried.

CALEB M. LITTELL, (son of Doct. Anthony Littell,) and Mary Clark, daughter of Joshua, lived in New York, was a grocer, and had children:

1. Thomas Picton Littell, who married Mary Archer.

2. Anne Elizabeth married William Archer, cousin of Mary.

3. Amos Clark Littell married Emeline _____ .

4. George W. Littell married Mary Aikin, daughter of John.

8. Sarah Anne Littell married, 5th Feb. 1851, Frederick Tappen, of New York.

9. Josephine.

Caleb M. Littell died 28th May, 1848, aged 57 years.

The widow of Doct. Anthony Littell married, 2d, Jonathan Acken, son of Deacon Joseph Acken, whose wife was Rebecea Crane, daughter of Jonathan Crane.

Jonathan and Anna Acken had children:

1. Rachel Acken, who married Ezekiel Ross, son of David, of Westifield.

2. William Acken married, 1st, Elizabeth Miller, daughter of Benjamin; 2d, Hannah Squier, daughter of John.

3. John Acken married Margaret Vail, daughter of William, of Piscataway.

4. Sarah Anne Acken married Matthias A. Brown, of Titusville, and had children: 1. Ellen Louisa Anna Brown; 2. Amos Littell Brown; 3. Caroline Elmer Brown.

Mrs. Brown lives in New York, and keeps a select school for young ladies.

I will remark here that Anthony Littell may have been a brother of Samuel, and Andrew son of Anthony.
