I trying to find her in 1901 on the cencus but having no luck, I know she was previously Dunn before she married a James little  and I'm trying to find records of all her 5 children Jane,Margaret,Maria,james and Letitia.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Canít find Frances in the 1901 census.

James & Frances were married in 1851:

Birth registration didn't start till 1864, so for children born before that you will need to search church baptism records (which are probably not on-line). Probably Aghalurcher parish. I found 3 children born post 1864 (Margaret, Maria & James):

Townland looks to be Killarbran (Aghalurcher).

This Little family in Killarbran in 1901:

Stephen Littleís father was James Little. Is he therefore part of your James & Frances family? Stephenís wife was Matilda Jane Magwood.

Same couple in 1911 with family- you can use the Irish Geneaolgy site to find births of these children and possibly later ones-

Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

I had a look for James in the 1901 census. His address in 1904 was Foydragh but thereís no sign of him in 1901 or 1911:

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Fermanagh/Cross/Foydragh/

Frances died in Tattenamona. Again no sign of any Little family there in 1901 either:

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Fermanagh/Greenhill/Tattinamona/

Stephen & family in 1911:

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Fermanagh/Corralongford/Killarbran/522106/

Stephen died 28.6.1943 aged 77, regd Lisnaskea. You can view the original certificate on-line on the GRONI website, using the ďsearch registrationsĒ option:

https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk

You will need to open an account and buy some credits. It costs £2.50 (sterling) to a view a certificate.


Administration of the estate of James Little late of Deerpark Rosslea County Fermanagh Farmer who died 10 April 1901 at Doogery in said County granted at Armagh to Frances Little the Widow. Info found in the PRONI Probate index online.


Hereís a marriage for Letitia to Joseph Lendrum:

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1902/10263/5735519.pdf

Doogary was James seniorís address when he died in 1901 (just about 3 days before  census night) and also Letitiaís address in 1902.  They are also in the Valuation revision books as being on plot 1 in that townland, arriving in 1898, as I read it. However the family arenít listed in the census. Looks as though they got missed:

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Fermanagh/Corrylongford/Doogary/

Joseph & Letitia in 1911:

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Monaghan/Clones_Urban/Whitehall/804629/

Note that 2 of their 4 children had died.

Letitiaís death in 1941:

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1941/04694/4252306.pdf

Canít find anything on the other children. A couple of trees on Ancestry have this family. They give Janeís year of birth as 1854 and that there was a Thomas born 1878 but nothing more on what became of them. (I searched for a birth for Thomas but without success).
