The Little Family

The Little Family were living in Hilperton, Wiltshire up to around 1826-1830 when they appear to have moved to Bristol. William and Jane were married in Hilperton and the first three children were baptised there. By 1830 William (jnr.) was baptised in Bristol and in the 1841 census they are living in Bristol (at that stage there were seven children including Richard). Another child (Jane) was also baptised in Bristol but there doesn't appear to be any record of a baptism for Richard. By 1851 William (snr) has died but Jane and some children are still living in Bristol.

Frances married a Samuel Beacham in 1852, Benjamin died in 1857, William married Hannah Hunt in 1850 and later moved to St Helens, Lancashire.

Richard (my 2 x great grandfather) was in the Royal Marine Artillery and later lived in Portsea. His daughter Jane Elizabeth married George William Goldsmith in 1877 and my grandfather Richard George Goldsmith was born in 1883.
