George Littlewood

Yet another pleasant surprise!

Today I received an email from FW a descendant of one George LITTLEWOOD, a younger brother of my ggg grandfather Joseph LITTLEWOOD 1811-Deceased.

If our lines of research are correct then we are 4th cousins 1 time removed.

I am hoping further correspondence will enable me to add further particulars to my LITTLEWOOD branches.

I have updated my GEDCOM to reflect these changes.

Hi, George Littlwood is my GGG Grandfather. He was my Great Grandmother's (Mary's) grandfather. I'm interested to hear from any other of his descendents. Cheers, Matthew

James Littlewood and Sarah Burton

The information I found at NOTTSGEN-L Archives though not yet confirmed, leads me to infer the following:

In 1799 my gggg grandfather James LITTLEWOOD of East Retford, Nottinghamshire married Sarah BURTON of West Retford, Nottinghamshire at West Retford.

They had eleven children one of whom was my ggg grandfather Joseph LITTLEWOOD 1811-Deceased.

In 1831 Joseph LITTLEWOOD 1811-Deceased married Zillah FENTON 1811-Deceased at Clarborough, East Retford, Nottinghamshire.

If all this is correct then it means I have gone back one more generation and through to the 18th century and have more particulars to add to this site and my GEDCOM file.

Zillah Fenton: Search

Late last night while mulling over how to proceed with my research into John ALLEN 1831-Deceased and Fanny LITTLEWOOD 1832-1915 I noticed Joseph LITTLEWOOD 1811-Deceased and Zillah FENTON 1811-Deceased in my family tree but I had marked it 'tentative'.

I have always had a certain amount of success searching on either 'Little Gringley' or the various forms of the forename 'Ziller' my great grandmother Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949 used. I searched for 'Zillah Fenton' and surprisingly it returned just this one result from NOTTSGEN-L Archives.

Though this post is from a 2001 archive I emailed the contact address and was pleasantly surpised when shortly afterwards I received a reply.

Being rather late I abandoned further research but I'm rather excited by this latest discovery.
