The LITTLEBOYS of South Buckinghamshire

  Littleboy is a fairly rare name which is found in both Norfolk and Buckinghamshire in the sixteenth & seventeenth centuries.  The two families do not appear at present to have a common origin.  This tree does not include all the lines in Buckinghamshire.  There are early Littleboys in Little Marlow and in High Wycombe.  Some of the High Wycombe Littleboys later became Quakers but do not appear to link with the long line of Quaker Littleboys originating with Richard Littleboy born in Penn in 1752 who married Sarah Cowdray at Jordan's Meeting in 1781.  Many of the Bucks Littleboys settled in London.
