Early Generations

Note that most of the information in this Littlefield lineage is based on data posted on the InterNet and has not been checked by this author. While most of the individual events are probably correct the linkages may be in error: there are many contradictions between and within several of the source WebSites. For example, some sites have Francis Littlefield b. 1565 marrying four or five times, listing his second and subsequent marriages with identical dates and places though with differently named spouses. In particular, this author is not satisfied with the postulated parentage of James Littlefield b. c1675/1697 who married Mary Humphrey.

1  William Littlefield (c1505…1567) m. Margaret Wrigley (1522…1550)

William Littlefield, born about 1505, was the father of:

Researchers Nick and Hazel on their Lancaster Family Tree WebSite have:
     Willliam died (?buried) 27 May 1567 at Titchfield, Hants.
     William’s wife was Margaret Wrigley, born (?baptised) 1522 at Tenderton, Kent; died (?buried) 2 May 1550, Titchfield.
     Francis married Annis Pope in 1563 and died about 1605 at Titchfield.

Ralph Vaughan's WebSite [http://www.ralphvaughan.com/vaughan/gp6063.htm, accessed 19mar2012] has:
     Margaret Wrigley also married, on 18 November 1544, Stephen Austin (born c1520, Titchfield; died 17 November 1557 at Staplehurst, Kent), with issue Richard Austin (born 28 February 1547 at Titchfield; died 15 February 1622/3 at Titchdfield; married Annis).

Mr. Marlyn Lewis
of Portland, Oregon (2013) on Pedigree of Harry Dale Dick and Pedigree of Eunice Allen Badger has:
     Willliam died (?buried) after 27 May 1567.
     William’s wife Margaret Wrigley born (?baptised) c1510; died (?buried) 2 May 1550.
     Francis' wife Annis Pope born c1532, daughter of EDMUND POPE and ELIZABETH NEWDIGATE.

1.1  Francis Littlefield (1530…1605) m. Annie Pope (c1530…1638)
[Exeter, Devon and Titchfield, Hampshire]

Francis Littlefield, born about 1530, son of WILLIAM LITTLEFIELD, married Mary/Annie Pope; Mr. Marlyn Lewis on Pedigree of Harry Dale Dick and Pedigree of Eunice Allen Badger has:
     Francis' wife Annis Pope born c1532, daughter of EDMUND POPE (born c1497; died 26 August 1550) and ELIZABETH NEWDIGATE (born c1508; died before 4 April 1559).

Francis and Annis were the parents of:

Francis Littlefield and Annis née Pope are noted as marrying in Exeter in 1563; Francis to have died at Titchfield in 1605; and Annis (said to have been born in Exeter in 1533) to have died in 1638 [per Lancaster Family Tree site].

1.1.1 ♦  Francis Littlefield (1565…1618) m1. Mary Hill (1564…1605); m2. Annis Wigg née Heather (c1570…1619)

This lineage from here down to the marriage of John Littlefield and Elizabeth Soane is based on Ancestral File Submissions to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints by Dorothy McNiven, 145 S 600 E Apt. 4, Salt Lake City Ut 84201 (Submission AF91-103602) and Renae Jensen, 24249 141St PL SE, Kent WA USA 98042 (Submission AF93-103686).
Francis Littlefield, born and/or baptised about 1565 at Exeter, Devon, son of FRANCIS LITTLEFIELD and ANNIS POPE, married Mary Hill about 1589/1591 at St Peter’s church, Titchfield [or possibly Litchfield] in Hampshire. Mary had apparently been born about 1564 in Exeter; Mr. Marlyn Lewis of Portland, Oregon (2013) cites the Pedigree of Harry Dale Dick and Pedigree of Eunice Allen Badger to say that Mary was born circa 1570, the daughter of WILLIAM HILL (born circa 1545 at Titchfield, Hampshire) and JOAN ANNABLE (born circa 1547 at Titchfield) who had married circa 1569 at Titchfield. Francis and Mary were the parents of:

Mary Littlefield died and/or was buried on 29 October 1605 at Titchfield.

Francis married Annis Wigg née Heather on 14 July 1606 at Titchfield, Hampshire. Francis and Anis were the parents of [at least]:

Clothier Francis Littlefield died on 21 October 1618 aged 55 years, and was buried the next day, at Titchfield. Annis Littlefield formerly Wigg née Heather died and/or was buried on 5 July 1619 at Titchfield.

Francis' will dated 21 October 1618 (per http://marchif.crosswinds.net/texte/13/13241.html, and Littlefield Family Newsletter by Charles Littlefield Seaman, 1996, Vol 6 pg 26 as on John Burton Kaherl's WebSite http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/k/a/h/John-B-Kaherl/GENE15-0001.html, and others), read:

1.1.1.1  Edmund Littlefield (1592…1661) m. Agnes Austin (…)
[
Titchfield Hampshire 1592-1638; Maine USA 1638-1661]

per http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~walkersj/littlefield.htm, and others.
Edmund Littlefield, second of six known children of FRANCIS LITTLEFIELD and MARY HILL, was born 2 June 1592 and baptised 27 June 1592 at Tichfield, Hampshire, England. Edmund died 11 December 1661 in Wells (or perhaps Kennebunkport], York County, Maine.  Edmund married Annis [Agnes] Austin (daughter born on 1 February 1596 in Exeter, Devon to RICHARD AUSTIN and AGNES) on 16 October 1614 in St. Peter's, Titchfield:

"Joseph had a sister Annis who mar. Edmund Littlefield, who came to New England in 1638. Francis of Dedham and Matthew of Maine are thought by some authorities to be brothers of Joseph. It is thought by some that Richard of Charlestown might have been another brother but proof is lacking.
— Moore, Edith Austin A Genealogy of the Descendants of Robert Austin of Kingstown, Rhode Island. 1951. p10.

Edmund (a clothier) and Agnes were the parents of eleven children:

Annis was buried on 12 December 1677 in Exeter, Devon.

1.1.1.2 James Littlefield (1598…1661) m. Joan(e) Jeffery (…)
[Hambledon 1633-1722]

James Littlefield, born and/or baptised in June 1598 at Titchfield, Hampshire, was the son of FRANCIS LITTLEFIELD and his wife MARY HILL. James married Joan(e) Jeffery on 17 January 1617(or 1618/1619) at Titchfield. In his father’s 1618 Will, James was noted as “of the parish of Drexford”, as was Thomas Knight Senclares: both were appointed overseers along with Nicholas Waller of Swanswicke in Titchfield. [Perhaps James married more than once.]

James and Joan(e) were the parents of [at least]:

James Littlefield died on Christmas Eve, 24 December 1661 at Titchfield, Hants., and was buried thereat. [The LDS Ancestoral File also has a William Littlefield (christened 5 December 1619, Titchfield) the son of Francis.]

1.1.1.2.1 John Littlefield (1633…1709) m1. Susan Hogsflesh (1635…1658); m2. Elizabeth Soane (1635…1706)

John Littlefield [Jhon Leetelffeelde], born and baptised November 1633 at Hambledon, Hampshire, was the son of JAMES LITTLEFIELD and his wife JOANE JEFFERY. John married Susan Hogsflesh, daughter of JOHIS HOGSFLESH, on 16 July 1657 at Hambledon. Susan(na) had been baptised at Hambledon on 22 November 1635. Susan Hogfflesh's siblings baptised at Hambledon included Elizabetha Hoggflesh (9 June 1625), Franciscus Hoggsflesh (16 March 1627), Amy Hoggsflesh (19? February 1629 [1630G]; married Henry Hunt at Hambledon on 5 September 1653), and probably Johoonas Hoggsflesh (5 May 1633).

It appears that John and Susanna had one child:

Susan Leetelfield, wife of John, was buried at Hambledon on 7 June 1658; a Willyam Leetelffield had been buried there on 12 May 1658.

John married again on 5 May 1659, his second wife being Elizabeth Soane. Elizabeth Soane may have been the daughter of JOHN SOANE baptised at Hambledon on 26 August 1627, but was probably the daughter of HENRY SOANE baptised at Hambledon on 22 November 1635 [the same day as Susanna Hogsflesh]. Henry Soane had married MARGARITA DROVER [Sherwood has DREWE] [Henricus Soane et Margarita Drewe] at Hambledon on 3 December 1629 - Margarita's surname is difficult read on the parish register microfilm: the entry seems to read:
       Henrici Soane et Margarita Driver matrimono 3 December 1629
Drover could be Driver or Dorunz or something else. Cf John Dovunz? [Driver?] married two years later:
       John Dovunz et Catherine Rappon matrimono 14 Quinilus 1631.
Elizabeth Soane's siblings baptised at Hambledon included Henricus Soane (5 September 1630), Thomas Soane (15 April 1637), Humfredus Soane (15 April 1638/40), Margaret Soane (4 and 7 March 1642) and Mary Soane (21 February 1649 [1650G]; married Jhon Porter at Hambledon on 12 October 1654)

John and Elizabeth were the parents of:

John Littlefield died 17 November 1709 at Hambledon. Elizabeth, reportedly born 1637 at Hambledon, appears to have died in 1706.

1.1.1.2.1.1 John Littlefield (c1660…1735) m. Mary Bean (c1663…1748)

John Littlefield, christened at Hambledon, Hampshire in 10 January 1660, the son of JOHN LITTLEFIELD and ELIZABETH SOANE, married Mary Bean at Hambledon on 1 June 1696. John and Mary were the parents of:

1.1.1.2.1.2 James Littlefield (c1675/1695…1753?) m1. Elizabeth Miller (1676…); m2. Mary Humphrey (c1695 … 1755?)

The existence and details of the first of the following marriages for James Littlefield (to Elizabeth Miller) are from http://keevil.topcities.com/page151.html , which also details the second marriage (to Mary Humphrey). The latter marriage had been independently detailed by this author, and a prior marriage helps account for James being 40 years old when he married Mary. It is puzzling why he left Hambledon for Portsmouth and his first marriage yet returned to Hambledon for the second marriage.
James Littlefield, aged 22, seemingly the son baptised on 7 February 1675g to JOHN LITTLEFIELD and ELIZABETH SOANE, married Elizabeth Miller at St Thomas’, Portsmouth on 9 May 1697. Elizabeth, baptised 22 July 1676 at St Thomas’, Portsmouth, was a daughter of WILLIAM and ELIZABETH MILLER. James and Elizabeth had the following children:

It appears that James Littlefield later married Mary Humphrey at Hambledon, Hampshire, on 5 December 1715 . Mary may have been the Mary Humphrey baptised at Hambledon on 30 September 1682, a daughter of ANDREW HUMPHREY. James and Mary were the parents of:

A James Littlefield, senior, was buried at Hambledon on 14 September 1753. The widow of James Littlefield was buried thereat on 11 February 1755.

1.1.1.2.1.2.1 James Littlefield (1702…) m. Sarah Whiteling (…)

James Littlefield, baptised February 1702g at St Thomas’, Portsmouth, son of JAMES LITTLEFIELD and ELIZABETH MILLER, married Sarah Whiteling in  October 1724 in St Thomas’, Portsmouth. Sarah had apparently been baptised at St Thomas’, Portsmouth, on 1 January 1628j [1629g]. James and Sarah had five children:

1.1.1.2.1.2.1.1  Joseph Littlefield (1725…) m. Ann Roper (c1725…)

Joseph Littlefield, baptised 5 November 1725 at St Thomas’, Portsmouth, son of JAMES LITTLEFIELD and SARAH WHITELING, married Ann Roper on 22 June 1755 in Alverstoke, nine issue [per John B Kaher's website, accessed 2011]:

Rebecca Catherine Littlefield, baptised 5 July 1776 at St Thomas’, Portsmouth, was a daughter of JOSEPH LITTLEFIELD and ANN ROPER. Rebecca married Luke Kent on 2 November 1796 in Portsmouth, at lease one issue:

George Littlefield, born in 1717, son of JAMES LITTLEFIELD and MARY HUMPHREY, was aged 28 when he married Mary Farley on 26 May 1745 in Portchester, Hampshire. They had nine children:

A George Littlefield was buried at Hambledon on 24 September 1780.

1.1.1.2.1.2.4 William Littlefield (1722…) m. Sarah [Wheeler?] (…)

William Littlefield, baptised April 1722 at Hambledon, Hampshire, son of JAMES LITTLEFIELD and MARY HUMPHREY , and Sarah — [perhaps Sarah Wheeler, who married a William Littlefield at St Mary's Portsea, Hampshire, in October 1742 ] were the parents of:

There was also:

[For details of this family refer to the Outon-Searley file.]

2   The children of John Hogsflesh (…) m.
[Hambledon, Hampshire]

Hambledon parish lies some 15½km north of Portsmouth in Hampshire, in the Hambledon Hundred. The Hambledon parish registers record events from the late 1500s. The Hogsflesh name first appears in the parish registers with a baptism in 1625 for a child of John Hogsflesh (pre-dating related names such as Soane and Littlefield); the last Hogsflesh baptism was in 1775.

Susan Hogsflesh’s siblings baptised at Hambledon included Elizabeth Hogflesh (Elizabetha, daughter of Johis Hoggflefh, baptised 9 June 1625), Francis Hogsflesh (Franciscus, son of Johis Hoggflesh, baptised 30 February 1627), Amy Hoggsflesh (Amy, daughter of John Hogfflefh, baptised 19? February 1630g [1629j]; married Henry Hunt at Hambledon on 5 September 1653), and John Hogsflesh (Johannes, son of Johannis Hoggesflesh, baptised 5 May 1633).

John Hogsflesh, the Hogsflesh progenitor in Hambledon, had the following children baptised in the Hambledon parish church:

A John Hogsflesh was buried at Hambledon on 27 October 1656; Anne Hogsflesh, a widow, was buried at Hambledon on 12 December 1656.

2.1  Amy Hogsflesh (1630…) m. Henry Hunt (…)

Amy Hogsflesh, baptised at Hambledon, baptised 1? January 1629j [1630g], the daughter of JOHN HOGSFLESH, married Henry Hunt in the parish church at Hambledon on 5 September 1653.

2.2  John Hogsflesh (1633…) m. Ann Manfeld (or Manv(r)ell) (…)

John Hogsflesh, son of JOHN HOGSFLESH, was baptised at Hambledon, Hampshire, on 5 May 1633. He married Ann Manfeld (or Manv(r)ell) in the parish church at Hambledon on 9 December 1657, where their children were baptised as follows:

Another John Hogsflesh was buried at Hambledon 31 July 1676. A widow Hogsflesh was buried at Hambledon on 7 September 1712.

2.2.1  Thomas Hogsflesh (1667…) m. (…)

Thomas Hogsflesh, son of JOHN HOGSFLESH, was born 17 February and baptised 24 February 1666j [1667g] at Hambledon. It is possible that Thomas' wife was Elizabeth Lipscome, baptised on 23 December 1666 at Rogate, Sussex, the daughter of RALPHE LIPSCOME and MARGARET AYLING. The following children were baptised in the parish church at Hambledon for a Thomas Hogsflesh:

2.2.1.1  Thomas Hogsflesh (1703?…) m. Elisabeth Ford (1706…)

Thomas Hogsflesh, probably the son baptised 12 December 1699 at Hambledon to JOHN HOGSFLESH [though possibly the son baptised 24 June 1703 for FRANCIS HOGSFLESH, though that Thomas is believed to have died circa 30 July 1736] appears to have married Elisabeth Ford at Hambledon on 30 September 1729. Elisabeth was baptised at East Meon on 25 May 1706, the daughter of DANIEL FORD (born 1676, East Meon; buried 11 March 1729 at East Meon) and ELIZABETH WEBB (baptised 22 October 1681 at East Meon; buried 11 November 1729 at East Meon). Thomas and Elisabeth appear to have been the father of nine children baptised at Hambledon for a Thomas Hogsflesh:

2.2.2  Francis Hogsflesh (1670…) m. (…)

Francis Hogsflesh, son of JOHN HOGSFLESH, was baptised 7 January 1669j [1670g] at Hambledon. The following children were baptised in the parish church at Hambledon for a Francis Hogsflesh:

2.2.2.1  Francis Hogsflesh (1706…) m. Ann Harfel (…)

Francis Hogsflesh, son of FRANCIS HOGSFLESH, baptised 14 July 1706 in the parish church at Hambledon, appears to have married Ann Harfel at Hambledon on18 October 1734 and to have been the father of the four children baptised at Hambledon for a Francis Hogsflesh:

2.2.2.1.1  Francis Hogsflesh (1747…) m. (…)

Francis Hogsflesh, son of FRANCIS HOGSFLESH, baptised 22 March 1746j [1747g] at Hambledon, appears to have been the father of the five children baptised at Hambledon for a Francis Hogsflesh:

2.3  Susanna Hogsflesh (1635…1658) m. ♦ John Littlefield (1633…1709)

Susanna Hogsflesh, daughter of JOHN HOGSFLESH, was baptised at Hambledon, Hampshire, on 22 November 1635. She became the first wife of John Littlefield when they married in the parish church at Hambledon on 16 July 1657 (after publication of Banns)xlvi. It appears that John and Susanna had one child:

Susan Leetelfield, wife of John, was buried at Hambledon on 7 June 1658, possibly the result of complications in childbirth.
John Littlefield married again on 5 May 1659, his second wife being Elizabeth Soane (probably the daughter of HENRY SOANE baptised at Hambledon on 22 November 1635, the same day as Susanna Hogsflesh). By Elizabeth he had seven children (see below).

3  The Soane lineages of Hambledon
[Hambledon, Hampshire]
