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.
