Very nice to read all of the above.
I am a descendant of the same Little family who had a homestead in Darver, Louth from around the 1760s until 1880s or so. The last of the male Littles in that area was my great-great-grandfather, Thomas Little who died shortly after 1911 census and was living in Cuillenstown with his grandchildren (Reilly). I estimate that Mary Bell (nee Little) father was Michael Little, my 3rd great grandfather.

I was contacted yesterday evening by a gentleman in Australia who is a great grandson of Mary and William above. By this estimate he is a 4th degree cousin. My great grandfather Peter Little , son of Thomas Little of Darver (born 1851) left Darver for a career in the Irish Postal service from 1874 - 1912. He named his house in Serpentine Avenue , Ballsbridge "Darver" in honour of his love for his place of birth and rearing. I am interested in hearing from the relatives on this thread. I have many of the parish baptismal records from Darver. I also connected a branch of the Littles in Ardee to our Darver people via a marriage record and I have met some living relatives of those Littles who moved on to Pennsylvania in times close to the great famine.

Kind regards,

Ian Little

Hi Freya , Les

I am just replying to ensure that I have the 2 posts necessary to exchange private messages to allow contact between us relatives !

I've been in touch with Les via Facebook and now Skype.
I live in the West of Ireland now but I grew up in Dublin.
My great grandfather also used Castlebellingham from time to time in terms of his postal address.
I believe that was possibly because that was the "postal district" as opposed to Darver/Dromiskin.
Another area my father spoke about was Readypenny , which is a more contemporary name for a townland not far from where the Little homestead was.

I've got land records from the valuation office in Dublin which show the succession of leasors of the properties which the Littles farmed from around 1853 to the 1970s. The farm went out of Little leaseholding around 1880s when one of the inheritors, a James Little died and it passed to his wife who was Little by marriage but born Carroll. It then past to other people during the time when finally Catholics could actually opt to purchase the land which they were forbidden from owning due to the various Land repeal acts. Ironically the Littles and Bells started out life as Protestant religion which would have given them rights to own land. However , I believe they were only starting to be in a position to have such income in the late 1700s and then they independently converted. I suspect that in terms of marriage options they were closer in the social stratum to their Catholic neighbours and that's what resulted in them converting to Catholicism. We have a William Little on the 1766 Religious census as one of only 9 or 10 Protestants in Dromiskin area of Louth. Then in 1789 my 4th great grandfather William Little married Catherine Holdcroft in the Darver Catholic parish and all children henceforth were brought up in the Catholic religion.

Freya - lovely to hear from you - I will reply to your PM

Talk soon,

--Ian
