|THERE are at least three distinct groups of Littles -
Littles whose ancestors never even set foot in Scotland.
of the Scottish Border
Littles who came from France 300+ years ago.
MANY of the 45,000 Littles who are dispersed around the globe
may be aware that their progenitors came from Dumfriesshire on the Scottish
side of the Anglo-Scottish Border, or perhaps from neighboring Cumberland
on the English side of the Border, or from Ulster in Ireland.
THE 1587 Act of the Scottish Parliament Roll of the Clans that
have Captains, Chiefs and Chieftains "on whom clansmen depend against the
will of their landlords in the Borders and the Highlands" names "Litillis"
among the names listed under West March. Thus in 1587 the Littles were
clearly regarded as a Clan.
