THE ANCESTRY of the CHIEFS of CLAN LITTLE

Five generations after Normandy's Conquest of England in 1066 AD Richard Lytle was born. He was in line of descent from William the Conqueror, King of England and the Duke of Normandy, whose ancestry can be traced back to Ingiald who ruled in Central Sweden 1,300 years ago. 

Nine hundred years after Ingiald the Littles, as well as other unruly Scottish clans in Eskdale and Liddesdale, were to suffer executions, persecutions and banishments by the Royal command. The Eskdale and Liddesdale chiefs, with the exception of Armstrong of Mangerton, were lucky to hold on to their lives and lose only their lands. So it was that the grand titles and like Royal favors destined for Scotland went to their persecutors and not to them.
