The Littlefields - Early Days
The known story starts with a Francis Littlefield who was born about 1565. His place of birth is, as yet, unresolved. He may have come from Exeter or could be a local lad.
e married twice. First to Mary in about 1591 at St Peters Church, Titchfield and then when Mary died in 1605 he married again this time to Annis Wigg on 5 July 1606. He was buried in Titchfield on 11 October 1618. His first wife Mary was born in Exeter.
Francis was 'a successful cloth maker and merchant. He owned a fulling mill. The only fulling mill known on this stretch of the Meon was Little Funtley Mill about 2 miles upstream from Titchfield village and just south of the Longwater Bridge.
The mill itself can no longer be seen on the ground, but some outline is said to be visible in aerial photographs. The mill's head-leat, which lies imediately north of the bridge, still exists. This is shown in the picture at the top of this page. There still remains part of the sluice gate which allowed water to bypass the mill pond.
Francis Littlefields will
Francis must have been a wealthy man as his will shows.
Francis Littlefield's Will(1565 - 1618)
" I make my wife Anne and son James my executors and if at any time they disagree then by consent of my overseers, division shall be made equally of such goods as do remain betwixt them, and my wife to have the dwelling house next adjoining to my fulling mill with the apurtenances thereto belonging, holden by lease of John Hauksford of Bishop's Waltham, and my son James to have the fulling mill with the appurtenances thereto belonging. Overseers: Thomas Knight Senclares in the parish of Drexford, my brother James Litlefield of the same parish and Nicholas Waller of Swanswicke in the parish of Titchfield and for their pains I giave each 5s.
(signed) Frances Littlefield his mark
Witnesses: John Wither Robert Poulet Frances Waller
Debts owing by me: To Nicholas Waller £12. Johne Ossment £8, Robard Wedge £5 and Elizabeth Wedge £20. Proved November 21, 1618 by Anne Littlefield, widow and relict of the deceased, and James Littlefield, sone of the deceased, the executors named. Bords: Said Anne, James Littlefield of the same, clothworker, Edward Hardwell of same, yeoman, and John Witherd of Eckeham, husbandman"
The original copy of the Will is held in the Winchester, Hampshire, UK Public Records Office although it is slightly illegible.
Francis had seven children, the eldest, Edmund was born in 1591 but strangely back in Exeter.
We can at least be sure he was back in Titchfield in 1614 because at the age of 23 he married Annis Austin on the 16 October. Annis was from Exeter. He lived in the centre of the village in the cottages now known as Barry's Cottages.
Edmund leaves the village for the New World
Edmund Littlefield left Titchfield around 1636 along with a couple of his sons leaving his wife Annis (or Agnes) and the rest of the children to sail for Exeter, New Hampshire on the ship 'Bevis' in 1638. He received 200 acres of land on the western bank of the Ogunquit River.
What possessed a man to give up a secure living and try his luck in the New World? It was only 16 years earlier that the Pilgrim Fathers had set sail from Southampton. Could it be he was encouraged by the exploits of the Third Earl of Southampton who was 'interested in shipping and a very active sponsor of the exploration and development of North America'.
Although the third Earl died in 1624 it is possible that the idea had already been planted in Edmund's mind.
On arrival in the New World Edmund set to work and by 1643, he had erected a sawmill on the Webhannet River. (Webhannet is the Indian name for Wells, Maine). He went on to build sawmills on contract for others.
Edmund's eldest son, John, married a Patience Wakefield who was born in Titchfield in 1624.
They must have kept in contact with England as John and Patience's eldest child, Deborah, was also born in Titchfield between 1660 and 1663.
Deborah married Samuel Webber and is recorded as having 12 children. Samuel came from York, Maine and was born in 1656.

The Austen Family
Enquiry from the USA
Mike Klein of the Austin Families Association of America has contacted Titchfield Bonfire Boys with the following message-
Thank you for the information about the website and I hope the carnival went well.
I am writing an article for the Austin Families Association of America about the life of Richard Austin who was born in Titchfield in 1598 and came to America in 1638 during the Great Migration. Basically the article addresses the question of why anyone would want to uproot their family, leave their business and move to a rough life in the wilderness.
Through my research, I have learned a lot about Titchfield in those days and how it was influenced by the Wriothesley family, particularly Henry Wriothesely, 3rd Earl of Southampton. I have also discovered the link of the Earl with the Virginia Company and Edwin Sandys and the Puritan movement.
While I haven't gotten a firm grasp on it as yet, it seems to me that somehow, there must be some overall connection between the Earl, the Puritan Movement, Titchfield, the canal, the changing cloth industry of that time and the group of people that left Titchfield to head to New England.
And that is why I was trying to get to the Bonfire Boys website. I have read that the Earl was responsible for building the canal and trying to stimulate the economy of Titchfield, but I have also read that many townspeople considered the canal to be to the Earls benefit only as it gave him more farmland and hunting grounds and that is why his effigy is burnt every year by the Bonfire Boys. Can you verify any of this and perhaps add to the story?
As a side note, I had hoped to mention your carnival in my article and tell the readers of it's current financial difficulties in hopes that they might send you a dollar or two - you never know!
It raises many questions. Would anyone who can help or is related please get in touch with us.
