They were shown only as Sallie H. Bonneville, age 22 and Ronie N. Littleton, age 23. They were married by Rev. E.C. MacNickal..2

Anecdote*1920 Rome Littleton had a drayage business in Pocomoke City. With a horse drawn cart, he would meet the trains and boats from Baltimore, unload their cargo, and deliver the goods to retail merchants in town. He also delivered Texaco petroleum products (likely kerosene) to individual homes. A picture was taken of him, circa 1920, standing beside his Texaco wagon pulled by a white horse, when the family was living on 3rd Street. The graveyard behind the present Worcester County Public Library at Pocomoke can be seen in the background. 
Death*9 October 1924Romulus died on 9 October 1924. Rome Littleton was 50 years of age when he died on 9 October 1924. He was buried in Goodwill Cemetery, only a short distance from his father and mother. His mother had died circa 1913 and been buried there in an unmarked grave, beside her husband, Edmund S. Littleton, who died in 1896. His tombstone calls him Edward S. Littleton. This was likely a mistake of the stone carver, who probably knew him as "Ed" Littleton..

Death*1857William died in 1857 at Worcester Co, MD. William T. Littleton died testate in 1857, naming sons Thomas S. Littleton and Edmund S. Littleton, a daughter Nancy Littleton, and a grandson James Littleton Melson (Wor. Wills TT #8, p. 13). He was 'the son of a William Littleton, who died intestate in 1828. Although not named in his will, this William Littleton was apparently the grandson of Edmund Littleton, who died testate in Worcester County in 1754, naming two sons, Thomas and Edmund (Wor. Wills JW #2, p. 136). Neither Thomas nor Edmund left a probate record, but Thomas Littleton and William Littleton appeared together on a bond of 5 October 1802, indicating they were father and son (Wor. Deeds U, p. 624). The Edmund Littleton who died in 1754 first appeared in Maryland on Somerset County tax lists of 1740. There is little doubt he was the Edmund Littleton named as a son by John Littleton of Accomack County, Virginia, in his will of 1721 (Acco. Wills, Deeds & c 1715-1729, part 1, p. 365). John Littleton had bought 200 acres of Accomack County land, near Hunting Creek, in 1699 (Acco. Wills and Etc. 1692-1715, part 1, p. 391)..1

Littleton with 1 tithable in Mr. Ed Custis' precinct. (NOTE: The 2 tithables in 1690 & 1691 implies he either has a son who turned 16 in 1690 or he had a slave. Since the 2 tithables did not continue, he probably had a slave.)5 
Marriage*circa 1684He married Margaret Riley, daughter of Thomas Riley (O'Rily) and Sarah Webb, circa 1684 at Accomack Co, VA.6,7 
Anecdote1684 On 3 Jan 1683/4 the suit of Christopher Thompson against John Littleton was dismissed. On 13 Jan 1684/5 Capt. Henry Custis presented a list of soldiers delinquent in appearing for the muster he appointed for 1 Jan 1684/5 and the sheriff was to summon them to the next court. John Littleton was one of the 19 men on the list. On 12 May 1686 Capt. Henry Custis presented a list of delinquent soldiers and John Littleton was again on the list. On 6 Jul 1686 John Littleton was on the list of delinquent soldiers of Capt. Henry Custis, but the court thought it fit to acquit them of their fines this time. In the future all persons neglecting their duties would be fined according to the penalty of the law. On 18 Dec 1688 Henry Selman, John Smally, Robert Tayler, Woodman Stockley, George West, John Littleton and Thomas Stockley were delinquent in appearing as they had been sworn "of the grand inquest for the year 1688 and they were to be fined 200 lbs tobacco. On 20 Feb 1688/89 John Littleton, aged about 27, petitioned that he was prevented by sickness from attending the December court as a grand juryman. Since he made it appear that he was really sick, the court ordered that he be discharged from his fine. However, he had to pay court charges. On 18 Jun 1689 grand juryman John Littleton presented Capt. Hill's woman servant for fornication.8 
Anecdote1692 On 16 Jun 1691 John Littleton, who bought an orphan named John Foster before the court, stated that he was willing to talke the orphan into his care till Foster reached 20 years of age. The court agreed and ordered that Foster perform according to law. On 21 Feb 1693/4 Lt. Col. John West sued Peter Pritchard for 688 lbs tobacco, but Pritchard failed to appear. The sheriff returned John Littleton as bail for Pritchard's appearance at the next court. Jno. Littleton was on a jury on 20 Nov 1691, again on 19 Sep 1693 and again on 20 Mar 1693/4.9 
Land bought*1699John bought land in 1699 at Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that John Littleton brought 200 acres near Hunting Creek. This was the 200 acres that Charles Scarburgh sold to Thomas ORily in 1690. It was on the south side of Timber Creek and between the two Bayside roads. Thomas Riley, wife Sarah, left it to his son Lawrence in his will of 1696 and 3 years later Lawrence & his wife Tabitha sold it to John Littleton. This is the land John Littleton left to his son William in his will. In 1797 John Littleton's grandson Mark Littleton (wife Raner) left a part of another tranct to his son George, and the balance to his sons Southy and James. It was the appearance of the name Southy in this family which has lead many to think that the line came down from the Nathaniel Littleton family through his son Southy, but as shown in the history of several tracts both in N'hamp and Accomack, that male line ceased to exist soon after 1700..1,10 
Land bought3 January 1700John bought land on 3 January 1700 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Lawrence Ryley and his wife Tabitha acknowledged a deed for land they sold to John Littleton. In the deed book they were shown as Lawrence Riley and wife Tabitha of Somerset Co, MD and he was shown as John Littleton of Hunting Creek, Accomack Co, VA. It was described as 200 acres on the south of Back Branch at Timber Creek, bounded on the east by the Bayside Road, adjoining the land of Peter Claywell, on the south & southwest by Thomas Riley & John Lewis & on the west by John Arue (Rew) dec'd..11,12 
Anecdote1701 On 1 Apr 1701 Jno. Littleton was on a jury.13 
Anecdote1703 On 5 Oct 1703 John Littleton was on a jury. On 7 Aug 1706 John Littleton petitioned to be paid for serving as a witness for William Bunting in his suit against John Evans. Since Littleton served two days, it was ordered that Bunting pay him 80 lbs tobacco and court costs. On 6 May 1707 Jno. Littleton was again on a jury. On 5 Apr 1709 Lawrence Reyly presented and acknowledged a bond he made to John Littleton.14 
Land sold*5 October 1703John sold land on 5 October 1703 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that John Littleton presented and acknowledged a deed for land he sold to William Darter. John's wife Margaret Littleton acknowledged her relinquishment of dower. The deed was dated 18 Aug 1703 when John Littleton, planter, and his wife Margaret of Acc Co sold to William Carter of Acc Co 1 acre at Back Branch, alias Timber Creek, being a part of my plantation where I now live, bought of Lawrence Riley of Somerset Co, MD. The 1 acre is bounded on the north by Back Branch, on the east by the County Road & adjoining Peter Claywell and on the west & southwest by Littleton's plantation. The 1704 quit rent rolls showed him still owning 200 acres in Accomack County..7,15 
Will*15 September 1718He made a will on 15 September 1718 at Back Creek, Acc Co, VA. He was shown as John Littleton of Back Creek, Acc Co, being sick & weak of body but of good & sound memory giving prase to God for the same & all his blessings bestowed on me and considering my self and uncertainty of man's life do therefore make & appoint this to be my last will & testament, revoaking all other wills by me formerly made & first & princibly I bequeath my sould to God the Great Creator hoping & stedfastly believing through the merits & imtersession of Jesus Christ to receive a full & free pardon of all my sins & a place among the elect in endless happiness & for what worldly estate the Load in mercy has bestowed on me, I do order & bequeath in manner following. I give to my son William Littleton my plantation I now live on with all the appurtances belonging being by estimation 200 acres to him & his heirs forever. I give to my daughter Tabitha Warde on good feather bed with boulster, 2 new blankets & a quilt & a large iron pot of about 9 gallons & in case my daughter Tabitha shall fail of coming or sending for the above legacies for 3 years, then I give the bed boulster, blanketts, quilts & pot to my son Thomas Littleton & his heirs forever.

Death*before 1 August 1721John died before 1 August 1721 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that his will was probated. According to Whitelaw, it has been impossible to identify his man. It is definitely known that he is not a direct descendant of the original emigrant Nathaniel Littleton, though they may have been a descendant of a collateral branch in England. While the male line of Nathaniel ceased entirely in the early part of the next century, this man still has a number of male descendants living (1951)..16,1

Birth*circa 1704Mark was born circa 1704 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Will - Father's*15 September 1718Mark was named in his father's will on 15 September 1718 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as a son Mark Littleton (under 18) in the will of John Littleton of Back Creek..1 
Will - Witnessed*6 January 1726He witnessed a will on 6 January 1726 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that John Tankred, John Oakley & Mark Littleton witnessed the will of Thomas Simson, who named 9 children in his will.2 
Anecdote2 August 1726 On 2 Aug 1726 Mark Littleton brought action for damages of £20 against Thomas Rew for assault. Littleton's attorney appeared as did Rew, who was granted time till the next court. (NOTE: This was evidently the Thomas Rew who was named a fathering a bastard child of Mark's sister Mary.)3 
Anecdote6 October 1727 On 6 Oct 1727 the action brought by John Simpson against Mark Littleon was delayed at the request of Littleton. On 9 Nov 1727 it was noted that Mark Littleton would have judgment granted against him if he did not appear at the next court to answer the action of John Simpson. On 6 Mar 1727/28 the action of John Simpson against Mark Littleton was referred to the next court for trial. On 8 May 1728 the case of John Simpson against Mark Littleton was brought to trial and the jury found for Littleton, who was to receive court costs and attorney's fee.4 
Anecdote6 June 1728 At a 6 Jun 1728 court it was recorded that last November Lucretia Lewis was presented for bastardy by the grand jury; she now produced a certificate signed by Rev. Mr. Thomas Thompson, rector in Dorchester Co, MD, showing that she was legally married to William Sherewood of this county. Mark Littleton, who received the certificate from Mr. Thompson, swore to the truth of the same. Ordered that Lucretia Lewis be discharge; she paid court costs.5 
Anecdote2 April 1729 On 2 Apr 1729 it was ordered that Mark Littleton be taken into the sheriff's custody till posting a bond for his good behavior. He had distrubed the sheriff while he was excuting his office. On 4 June 1729 he was discharged from his bond for good behavior.6 
Marriage*circa 1730He married Sarah Tatham, daughter of Edmund Tatham and Comfort Ewell, circa 1730.7 
Anecdote*January 1731 Mark Littleton openly detested William Andrews, a justice of the peace. In fact, their interactions degenerated into what could only be called a feud. Previously in court as the victim of assault and for interfering with the sheriff while he was executing his office, Mark again come to the attention of the court in Jan 1730/31. He was acused of assaulting, beating & wounding Mary Andrews the wife of William Andrews Gent. Though Mark denied it, the next month he was found guilty and fined £10 for the assult. Mark, along with three others, immediately retaliated by hurling serious accusations at Andrews. Summoned before his fellow justices that March, Andrews faced charges of signing a false certificate and casting some very scandalous aspersions on this court. Another man swore about the certificate and then Mark Littleton, the man recently convicted of assaulting Andrews' wife, swore to a very candid conversation that he claimed he and with Andews. Littleton and Andrews confiding that he would not have missed being a Jusitce of the Peace for Fifty pound for that he could never get a Cause in the Court before he was a Justice. When Mark asked why, Andrews said that the court were obliged to give judgment for him because they would expect hiim to do the same for them, upon which the said Mark told him he thought the court were upon their oaths to do justice in all affairs and the said Andrews answered him and said you don't know their tricks so well as I do. Shocked and probably wondering where these accusations might lead, the other justices agreed that the matter against Andrews had been duly proved. They unanimously concluded that the proceedings should be laid before the Lt. Governor so William Andrewes Gent. may be dealt with according to his deserts. Maybe the Lt. Governor consider the source, or maybe he know more tricks than the county justices did. At any rate, silence descended upon the matter; Andrews, who continued to sit as a justice of the peace, received no further censure. He did however continue the feud with Littleton. That April he and his wife Mary again brought an action of assualt against Littleton. The next day, Littleton returned the favor by bringin actions of assault and debt against Andrews. In August both suits were referred to the next court for trial. On 8 Sep 1731 Littleton was convictec of assulting and wounding mary Andrews, who was awarded 50 shillings in damages. The next day Littleton was granted a judgment for the debt Andrews owed him and Andrews was convicted of assulting Littleton, who was also awarded 50 shillings in damages.8 
Land bought*6 June 1732Mark bought land on 6 June 1732 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Mark Littleton, son of John, bought 100 acres of Whitelaws' tract A124 (about 1/2 mile southeast of Gargartha) from Samuel and Elizabeth Davis. This was the balance of the James Davis land north of the Taylor strip, and included the rest of the little triangle. The deed, dated 27 May 1732, shows it was bounded by the lands of Capt. Griffith Savage, Robert Taylor and William Baker and a divisional line of marked trees, which were marked in the presence of Southy Rew and Samuel Davis and Mark Littleton. A record of the death of Mark was not noted, but he was succeded by a son of the same name, who in 1759 deeded it back to Samuel Davis, but somehow some of the land remainded Littleton ownership, in spite of the deed. In 1797 Mark Littleton (wife Raner) left a little plot of 4 acres at the apex of the triangle to his son George, and the balance to his sons Southy and James. It was the appearance of the name Southy in this family which has lead many to think that the line came down from the Nathaniel Littleton family through his son Southy, but as shown in the history of several tracts both in N'hamp and Accomack, that male line ceased to exist soon after 1700..9,10,11 
Jury duty*5 September 1732He served on a jury on 5 September 1732 at Accomack Co, VA.12 
Anecdote8 November 1732 On 8 Nov 1732 Mark Littleton attended four days as evidence against William Tilney (plaintiff) for Mason Abbott, who was ordered to pay him according to law.13 
Jury duty3 July 1733He served on a jury on 3 July 1733 at Accomack Co, VA.14 
Anecdote5 December 1733 On 5 Dec 1733 it was ordered that Southy Littleton (orphan) be bound to Mark Littleton to learn the trade of carpenter.15 
Death*1735Mark died in 1735 at Accomack Co, VA. On 28 Jul 1735 boundary lines were processioned in the precincts between Back Creek and the North Branch of Guilford up to the said branch including Elias Bells and bounded upon Wallops Road to Joseph Taylors Longuelove Branch. Among them were the line between Samuel Davice and Mark Littleton; the line between Mark Littleton and Robert Taylor; the line between Elias Bell and William Baker; the line between William Baker and Mark Littleton; the line between William Baker and Henry Right; the line between Henry Right and Robert Taylor; and the line Robert Taylor and Southy Rew. (NOTE: When these lines were processioned in 16 Jul 1739, Mark Littleton was replaced by Sarah Littleton, who was evidently his widow.)16

Biography*The assumption is that this Mary Littleton's two bastard children (who were not named when she had the bastard children) were Southy Littleton and Comfort Littleton. Then Mary Littleton married Joseph Walker and they had sons Southy, Littleton and Joseph Walker. It is further assumed that Stephen Walker was a son of Joseph Walker, by his first wife before he married Mary Littlteton, making him a step-brother to Comfort Littleton and that he was the natural father of Comfort's children. Another possibility is that Comfort was a daughter of Joseph Walker, by his first wife before he married Mary Littleton and that Stephen Walker was her brother and she married an unknown son of Mark Littleton. 
Birth*circa 1700Ann was born circa 1700 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Anecdote*6 November 1716 On 6 Nov 1716 the grand jury presented Mary Lettleton for fornication and on 6 Mar 1716/17 the sheriff reported that he had summoned her and others, that they failed to appear at this court. Ordered that the sheriff take them into custody and keep them till they entered a bond for their appearance at the next court.2 
Will - Father's*15 September 1718Ann was named in her father's will on 15 September 1718 at Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as a daughter Ann Mary Littleton in the will of John Littleton of Back Creek..1 
Anecdote1722 On 4 Apr 1722 it was recorded that at the November court Mary Lettleton was presented for fornication and having a bastard child; summoned to his court, Mary now failed to appear. Ordered that the sheriff take Mary into custody till she posted a bond for her appearance at the next court. On 8 Jan 1723/24 it was recorded that at the December court the sheriff was ordered to take Tho. Rew into custody for his appearance at this court to answer for fathering the child of Mary Lettleton, a single woman. After questioning him, the court ordered the sheriff to immediately take Rew into custody till he posted a bond to save the parish the cost of supporting the child and for his good behavior. He was also to pay court costs.3 
Marriage*circa 1724She married Joseph Walker Sr., son of John Walker and Margaret (-----), circa 1724 at Accomack Co, VA. The assumption is that Joseph Walker married Ann Mary Littleton is based on him naming a son Littleton Walker..4 
Married Namecirca 1724 As of circa 1724,her married name was Walker. 
Anecdote5 December 1733 On 5 Dec 1733 it was ordered that Southy Littleton (orphan) be bound to Mark Littleton to learn the trade of carpenter. Evidently his father had died as it appears that his mother had married Joseph Walker and was still living at this time.5 
Will - Husb's*22 April 1747Ann was named in her husband's will on 22 April 1747 at Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as a wife Mary in the will of Joseph Walker..4 
Death*after 1747Ann died after 1747. The assumption is that this Mary Littleton's two bastard children (who were not named when she had the bastard children) were Southy Littleton and Comfort Littleton. Then Mary Littleton married Joseph Walker and they had sons Southy, Littleton and Joseph Walker. It is further assumed that Stephen Walker was a son of Joseph Walker, by his first wife before he married Mary Littlteton, making him a step-brother to Comfort Littleton and that he was the natural father of Comfort's children. Another possibility is that Comfort was a daughter of Joseph Walker, by his first wife before he married Mary Littleton and that Stephen Walker was her brother and she married an unknown son of Mark Littleton..

Birth*circa 1684Tabitha was born circa 1684 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Marriage*circa 1700She married Michael Ward Sr. circa 1700 at Accomack Co, VA. The assumption that Tabitha Littleton married this Michael Ward is based on the fact that this Michael Ward was in Accomack Co early, as a headright for Ann Toft, and that he was named in Accomack Co records up until 1720 and Tabitha was named as a daughter Tabitha Ward in her father's will of 1718. Another early Ward in Accomack Co that would have been the right age to have been her husband, Thomas Ward, was traced and found to have been married to Arcadia Toft as her second husband at the time Tabitha was named in her father's will. The other assumption is that this Michael Ward and wife Tabitha Littleton had a son Michael Ward who lived in N'hamp Co and was the right age to be their son and he named a son Litlteton Ward..1 
Married Namecirca 1700 As of circa 1700,her married name was Ward. 
Will - Father's*15 September 1718Tabitha was named in her father's will on 15 September 1718 at Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as a daughter Tabitha Warde in the will of John Littleton of Back Creek. He gave her a feather bed & other household items, but if she failed to come for them or send for them within 3 years, then to my son Thomas. (NOTE: Evidently she did not live nearby.)1
