LYTTLE, Henry and Jane

Only rarely do we have a first-hand account of a meeting with an early settler, so this entry set out in William Logan’s 1845  field notes is extra special; –  although not an altogether flattering description of the navigational powers of Mr. Lyttle,  his “gift of the blarney” is noted.

Friday 5 September 1845: The party heads inland from Bellows Bay to the current Lookout Road area:

“Mr. McNaughton, Mr. McDougal & I have been to the petrifying spring, which is no petrifying spring at all.  It is about 3 miles from where our tent is.  It is on the land of Mr. Litle [Little], an Irishman with a great tongue, who keeps a tavern near the spot.    He undertook to pilot us to the spring, which is in the wood, not half a mile or even a third of a mile from his clearing.  But he took us round & round in the wood a mile & a half before he hit on the place.

“The number of turns Mr. Little made in the wood quite confused his notion of the points of the compass & when we started to return he insisted upon taking one way while all the rest of us determined that the right way was to the contrary.  So off we went in contrary directions.  We got out of the wood some 20 minutes before him, & he would not have got out at all had he not after some toil & trouble found out his mistake, returned upon his steps and followed our track.”

This trip inland from the river at Bellows Bay would cross a large woodland of cedar that now is part of the Westmeath Conservation Area, and the Bellows Bay area is a part of the Westmeath Provincial Park., land best viewed from the top of Prettie’s Hill at the Lookout Gazebo on Lookout Road, (formerly Sixth Line), Westmeath Township.

Note: The surname Lyttle was sometimes written as Little and also Lytle; the different spellings have all been used in various early documents.

Henry Little (1781 – 1859) was born in  Kildallan, County Cavan, Ireland. At age 58 he and his wife Jane ______  (1781- 1868), and their two sons took the North Atlantic spring passage for New York out of Liverpool, England, arriving in June of 1839. That year older son Henry was 26 years old and married to Nancy Bowles with a baby on the way, and younger son John was a lad of 16 years. Henry and Nancy’s first child was born in America before the family then moved north  to the Canadian colonies in the early 1840s. The parents would both be long-lived: Henry to age 78 and Jane to age 87.

The two sons of Henry and Jane Lyttle: namesake Henry  and his brother John, raised large families in Westmeath Township.  Brothers  Henry and John and their descendants are outlined in this entry.

Henry’s 5 X great-grandson Graham Lyttle, (the surname spelling with a “Y” has been kept though the generations), has kindly submitted an entry in the Tithe Applotment book in Kildallan, County Cavan, Ireland, with the date 1828; a small sliver of insight into Henry’s life prior to coming to the New World.  Tithe Applotment Books 1823-1837.   Information from many of these books are online at: http://www.irelandxo.com/. – a  site very useful to trace Irish roots.

By the time that William Logan made his visit to the family, Henry obviously had a moonshine still or brewery up-and-running and was using his house for a tavern – from the Logan notes we can also wonder if Henry had been taste-testing his wares. Six years later in the 1851 Agricultural Census, which lists the agricultural  production on these homesteads, there are four Lyttle men listed:

1851 Census Westmeath Township

George Lyttle Conc. 2 Lot 4 75 acres
Henry Lyttle Conc. 6 Lot 12 100 acres
Henry Lyttle Conc. 7 Lot 12 100 acres
John Lyttle Conc. 6 Lot 13 200 acres

Concession 6 lies to the southeast from Bellows Bay and Lower Allumette Lake (a widening of the Ottawa River). These farms are still in production and the landscape of hills and vistas is well appreciated to any traveler on Lookout Road.

Much use has been made of Ancestry.ca material on the Lyttle family genealogy for this entry and our thanks goes out to the contributors to that site. As well, Graham Lyttle has submitted numerous photos to the site.

In the 1888 Directory of Renfrew County  five “Little”(no Y in spelling) men are listed – all as farmers with the exception of Thomas Little who was a sawyer.

By the turn of the century this family had become prominent land-owners as seen in the 1896 Voter List of six Lyttle men eligible for the vote. Women did not have the franchise unless they were property owners.

William Lyttle

William Lyttle in 1905 was serving on the Beachburg Fair Board. See BEACHBURG entry.

My great-grandfather William and his brother John changed the spelling of their family names around 1890. Apparently, the mail was always getting mixed-up with Thomas Little who had a large family and lived in Beachburg. I also think that it was an attempt to obtain the proper pronunciation, “Lite-all”.  – . writes Graham Lyttle who has generously submitted information to this entry.
