red mail Little Family Langholm Dumfriesshire
I am researching John W Little, brother of George Little (sons of Andrew and Elisabeth Little) who held Bimbenang in NSW Australia. John ran a plant nursery in the 1860s to 1880s and there is a picture of John Little in National Library of Australia (not sure if it is same John Little). I would like to make contact with the person who holds letters held by George Little and family retrieved from barn on property in 1960s and anyone else with interest in the Littles who settled in Bathurst area Australia. Some letters mentioned Duncan Malcolm in Berhanpore India, Sir Charles Malcolm and Sir Putteney Malcolm
red mail Jane Eleanor Blacklock
Looking for any info about Jane Blacklock (nee Eleanor) who married Thomas Lytollis (he may have used surname Ward) in May 1881 at Parliament Square, Langholm. Her parents were Isaac and Jane Eleanor so she was probably also married prior to 1881. Thomas Ward/Lytollis was born in Carlisle, Cumberland.

red mail Payne Family of Langholm
I am currently researching a book on the community of Langley, British Columbia, during the Great War. One of the young men who enlisted from Langley was born in Langholm in 1882, came to Canada in 1903, and served in the 47th Canadian Infantry Battalion during the war. He earned the Military Cross while overseas. During his time in Langley he served as Clerk to the Municipal Council, as a magistrate, and as a real estate and insurance broker. In later life he was honoured with the Freedom of the City of Langley. I am attempting to connect with living family members.

red mail Little Clan - Langholm
Researching Little family connection on my paternal Grandmothers side and have traced family back to Langholm although more work needed to confirm William's parents. He was born in 1783 and my Grandma (Margaret Little) always said there was a connection with the Malcolm family,including Sir Pulteney Malcolm. More work needed but would welcome comments from anyone also researching the Littles of Langholm.
Little Clan - Langholm
I am the great-great-grandaughter of Andrew Little who migrated to Bathurst NSW Australia in 1840. I hold 30 original letters brought to Aust by Andrew, some mentioning Duncan Malcolm in Berhanpore India, Sir Charles Malcolm and Sir Putteney Malcolm who appeared to be good friends of the Little family. Andrew Little was enticed to Bathurst by his brother-in-law David Maxwell Irving who had migrated from Langholm two years (?) before. Andrew bought 100 acres of land in Bathurst and built a house in 1850 (which is still standing and is classified by the National Trust). Various brothers and sisters followed Andrew to Australia later. The Bathurst property was called "Bimbenang" and was handed down through Andrew's son George Little to grandson MacDonel Little (my great uncle) and was sold out of the family in 1967 when MacDonel died. The letters I hold were found in good condition in a shed on the property by my father who was clearing the house out before putting it up for sale.
HOTSON in Langholm
I specialise in the descendants of Robert Hotson and Isobel Donald who married in Langholm in 1766. Robert was the builder who built Langhom Bridge over the River Esk
The Malcolms were in Langholm around 1800 and earlier, I'm looking for a link to the "Little" clan who also lived in Langholm at the same.
