MotherMary (?)
     Jane Little was born in 1831 at Liverpool, Lancashire, England.
Jane Little was baptized on 26 August 1831 at St Peter's, Liverpool, Lancashire, England, born Moira St, West Derby.1
This baptism is a possibility for our Jane but further work is required. Later census records and her marriage support a birth date of c1833 so there is some grounds for doubt about the 1831 baptism. She was the daughter of William Little and Mary (?)
On 30 March 1851 Jane Little lived at 76 Houndsditch, St Botolph Without, Bishopsgate, London, England.2
Jane Little was a milliner on 7 April 1861.3
On 7 April 1861 Jane Little lived at 37 Camomile St, All Hallows London Wall, London, England.4
Jane Little married Thomas Ward, son of Thomas Ward and Elizabeth Harrison, on 9 June 1862 at All Hallows London Wall, London, England.5
Jane Little and Thomas Ward emigrated circa 1862 to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The actual date of arrival has not been found. They were in London for their marriage in 1862 and then appear in Australia in 1864 for the birth of their son Albert Ernest in St Kilda, Victoria.
An article on Taviuni was published in The Argus (Melbourne) on 19 October 1870, and an excerpt is given below:
The plantations of Vuna Point, the principal settlement on the island, are thickly clustered together. The community thus formed, and the immunity from native interference enjoyed through the presence of Tui Thakau, the most powerful chief in the group after Maafu and Thakombau, have made this a favourite district for settlers with families. There are over 100 planters on the island, and 13 white ladies. The land is very rich, the surface being composed almost entirely of scoriae and fine disintegrated rock. It requires very little cultivation, and none but the most primitive agricultural implements are in use. Fijian labour can also be used here, and a magistrate from Mbau lives on the island for the purpose of keeping them in order. They can be fed very cheaply, for the tivoli, or wild yam, grows in the woods, and one man out of every ten is sufficient to procure the necessary daily supply. As a set-off to these advantages, however, the land is very heavily timbered ; a huge spine of mountains, on the top of which there is said to be a fine lake, attracts an undue share of rain, to the occasional injury of the cotton, and the running streams are for the most part subterranean. Vuna Point has had direct shipments from and to Sydney for the last year. A substantial jetty has been erected by Messrs. Wilson, Hamilton, and Co., and there is also an hotel on the Point.6
Jane Little and Thomas Ward emigrated circa 1871 to Taveuni, Fiji. They had a copra plantation there. His occupation on daughter Florence Amelia Ward's marriage certificate is given as planter.
A hurricane struck Taviuni on the 19th and 20th March devestating the cotton crop on nearly all plantations.7
The census of Europeans resident in Taveuni was completed on 28 June 1875 and listed the Ward homestead in Qara Walu, Vuna, Taveuni under the name "Newell and Ward" suggesting that Thomas may have had a business partner living with them on the plantation. A separate list of individuals was completed 20 May 1875 and includes Thomas and Jane Ward, the children Albert, Norman, Florence and Clara, as well as James Newell. There is a James Edward Newell (1852-1910) of the London Missionary Society who became well known for his work in Samoa - maybe there is a connection (although this James Edward Newell, born in Bradford, Yorkshire and trained at the Lancashire Congregatinal College, reportedly left England in 1880, after the census date).
There is only one other family listed in Qara Walu in 1875 and that is the Cazaly family, whose head is Edward Cazaly. Qara Walu is near the southern tip of Taveuni Island, near Vuna Point. After returning to Melbourne c1888, the family named their house "Vuna".8
The 1889 will of Elizabeth Little, sister to Jane, also confirms their late place of residence in Fiji as Qara Walu. Jan Conroy, a descendant of Norman Sinclair Ward, writes:
"The name of the family plantation was “Naqarawalu”. The property now has a road called the Waimarere-Salialevue Road going through it and is in the Vuna district toward the south of the Island. There now appears to be a town called Naqarawalu and if you use Google Earth you can find it. Also from copies of the lease of the property after the death of my Grandfather in Melbourne, it is evident that it was a copra plantation."
Jane Little witnessed the will of Jane Little dated 3 April 1881 at Carlisle, Cumberland, England; See source reference for copy of will - not yet transcribed.9
After Thomas died in 1881, Jane and the children remained in Taveuni for about another six years. Her two sons Albert and Norman would have been nearly 18 and 16 years respectively, so they were probably able to manage in their father's absence given there was plenty of cheap labour available.
Jane and family returned to Melbourne c1888. According to Jane's death certificate, she had spent 17 years in Fiji.10
Jane Little died on 21 November 1893 at "Vuna", Rathmines Road, Hawthorn, Victoria, Australia, at age 62. She died of chronic bronchitis (2 weeks). The informant was her son Albert Ernest Ward who appears to have lived with Jane.10
The following funeral notice appeared in The Argus (Melbourne) on 23 November 1893:
THE Friends of the late Mrs. JANE WARD, relict of the late Thomas Ward of Fiji are most respectfully invited to follow her remains to the place of interment in the Boroondara Cemetery Kew. The funeral will leave her late residence, Vuna, Rathmines road, Auburn, THIS DAY (Thursday), at 3 o'clock. OTTO PREUSS, Undertaker, Burwood-road, Glenferrie. Branches - No 1, Auburn-road, No 2, Camberwell; No 3, Malvern; No 4, Box Hill; No. 5, Surrey Hills; No 6, Lower Hawthorn and Burwood. Telephone No. 7, Hawthorn.11
Jane Little was buried on 23 November 1893 at Boroondara Cemetery, Kew, Victoria, Australia, Grave Location: PRES B 0471, Presbyterian. Buried with Jane is her son Albert Ernest Ward, buried 30 Jan 1899, age 34 years.12
Thomas and Jane's daughter Florence Amelia Ward wrote an article called "Plantation Life in Fiji" sometime after she married George McKAY in 1901. Her address was Colin St, Perth, Western Australia. It is transcribed below:

"Plantation Life in Fiji" by F.A.McK.
Plantation life in Fiji is rather different to plantation life in other countries; Ceylon or India for instance; & yet in many respects it is very similar. A planters life in the South Pacific is free and easy, healthy & interesting. A picturesque spot with a good commanding view is always chosen in which to erect the homestead; often built bungalow fashion (the modern buildings of now-a-days are more like our cottages) in an enclosure of an acre or more ground. The fence around the homestead is generally one of "Moli" (lime or lemon trees). These trees are planted very closely together & are clipped
page 2
every year to keep them short & bushy. They are not allowed to grow more than four feet in height. This fence which is exceedingly pretty, being of a bright rich green, is also a very secure safeguard for the garden and the nearer surroundings of the homestead; as cattle, pigs, etc cannot force their way through on account of the thorns. In front of this "vali" (house) is a beautiful & most luxuriously grown garden full of sweet smelling flowers, croatous, vines & creepers of all discriptions intertwining amongst the shrubs & over rockeries. Then your eye rests on a smooth rich green carpet of couch grass which is used for either a tennis court or croquet lawn. These passtimes being much
page 3
indulged in, in spite of the hot climate. A short distance away are the labour buildings or "Buries"; "Vali Mati" (hospital) (each plantation has by order of government a house set apart for the sick). Work on the plantation generally starts at 6 o'clock A.M., then the planter or overseer musters his men, calls the roll, has a horse brought up from the paddock and saddled, which he mounts & off they go to what-ever direction or directions the work of the day lay. There may be one gang of men planting or preparing land for one kind of product & another gang in another direction cultivating another kind, or perhaps erecting a shelter-shed for a crop of "sila" (maize) or "Uvi"(?) (yams) that is ready to
page 4
be harvested. The planter starts one lot of men going with their days "caka caka" (labour or work) then he rides on to set the next lot to work & gives his instructions, & so on all around till he sees a good start made, riding around in the fresh morning air, his horse brushing the dew from the undergrowth which is very thick, & the dew generally very heavy, - wends his way home with his master lazily sitting in the saddle whistling & thinking about the inner man for it is getting breakfast time. A good substantial meal is put before him, & his family are all up by this time & gathered around the table with a black boy to wait on them. After breakfast there are usually a
page 5
few little things to see about the house, a little gardening to be done, some banana or guava trees to be seen to, or a grenadilla vine to be trained etc. A good deal of fruit is indulged in during the morning, - when one is going through a nice patch of "vundi" (bananas) with yellow bunches hanging here & there it is a great temptation just to try one or two, or a nice ripe pineapple, soursop, mango, or any other of these luscious tropical fruits. Then after a walk round his homestead a lounge in a hammock on the spacious verandah or a little odd job is done, the planter jumps on his horse again & takes another tour around the plantation to see how the work is progressing. Sometimes he has a great deal of trouble with the men, who are very fond of malingering. There
page 6
are different kinds of labour employed on plantations in Fiji, very few planters employ native labour; they generally work the land by Coolies or Polynisians, or, as they are called in Queensland, Kanakas. After he sees that all is going well & has had a good ride around (which is very pleasant, I can speak from experience as I have ridden around about a plantation myself many a time; being a planters daughter) and seen that each man is doing his alotted work, he finds his way home to dinner. After "Kakana" (partaking of food) is over, the planter generally finds he has some business to do at the sea-port or township, which will take him the best part of the afternoon, getting home just in time to see the labour "Knock off" work. Therefore on a
page 7
plantation the planter or overseer is in the saddle most of the day; but there are a great many days when the men have a "tavi" (set task), then the planter is not so much tied; the men know they have to do a certain thing & they put forth their energies to get through it, so the master goes off to enjoy himself, very often in the way of taking his wife, sister or daughter - as the case may be - to spend the afternoon with friends and have afternoon tea & a game of tennis or croquet, or join a riding party, or may be go shooting "songi" or "ruvi" (two different kinds of bush pigeons) which are most delicious eating, very like the English grouse in flavour. Saturday afternoon is often spent by young fellows in taking out the dogs for a pig hunt. This sport is a good deal
page 8
indulged in, as there is plenty of fun & excitement to be got out of it, & sometimes it is very venturesome, I have known a wild boar with great white curling tusks, when bailed up by the dogs, make a desperate dart for liberty dashing between the legs of two young men upsetting them like ninepins; & while these sportsmen were picking themselves up and getting over their surprise, with feelings very much hurt at their undignified positions, the pig made good his escape. The dogs enjoy these hunts quite as much, if not more, than their masters. When the gun is taken down from its place, they dance about yelping, nearly mad with delight at the prospect of a good hunt, often they will go off by themselves & follow up the
page 9
trail of a pig & bail him up for hours in the bush, but if no one comes to their assistance they will wend their way home towards evening very much the worse for their outing, besmeared with blood & probably with a nasty flesh wound, or perhaps some more serious damage such as a broken rib, indeed often our canine members meet with their end in fearless combat with these wild animals. The Kanakas set traps for the "vuaka" (pig) by digging a very deep hole then covering it lightly over with twigs & leaves. The pig innocently enough walks over or endeavours to walk over what he thinks is solid ground; when to his surprise down he goes with a grunt, & there he stays till his trappers come and carry him to their "buri" (house) & enjoy him for supper.
page 10
There are some plantations on which little else but sugar cane is grown. It is a beautiful sight to see acres & acres under cane planted at different times, thereby you may see on one plantation - with a large area under cultivation - sugar cane in all its stages; in one direction a field of young green leaves waving too & fro in the wind, apparently as level as a table, each cane having grown almost to the same height. A little further on a field of what looks like swords held very erect & pointing straight up to the sky, this is cane coming into blossom; in another direction you see the cane in full bloom; this is, I think, the prettiest stage to look upon, the blossom is very light & feathery, very like that of pampas grass only tinged with a
page 11
delicate purple hue - cane is very seldom allowed to grow to this stage as it is redy for crushing before it flowers.
There are other plantations abounding with cocoanut trees. The nuts of which are made into copra & exported. Cattle are bred more extensively on cocoanut plantations than on any other as the animals can roam about among the trees & feed on the undergrowth without damaging the trees. And there are other planters who go in for a little of everything such as maize, yams, bananas, pine-apples etc & often breed cattle, pigs, etc.
The busiest time of a planters life is when the
page 12
crops are ready for gathering & he is exporting fruit or otherwise disposing of his products. Home life on a plantation in Fiji is perhaps a little monotonous. Apart from the family interests there is little else to occupy oneself with when the days work is over. There being no evening amusements except what may be got up by a few energetic people, such as a local concert & perhaps a dance afterwards, or a card & supper party, music evenings, and such like. There are no streets for the gentler set to parade in, & show off the latest fashion, or gaily decorated shop windows on which to flatten ones nose. A large general store is more
page 13
to the purpose; which, from the outside appearance is a great barn, but the interior presents a more pleasing aspect, & you can purchase almost every thing you want, from a needle to an anchor.
Children on Plantations generally have a good long walk or ride to school; & if there is no school at a get-at-able distance then lessons are heard at home. The mother has plenty to do in looking after her house-hold duties & her children, as there are no European maids employed on the plantations, except perhaps a governess sometimes. The domestics are all Kanakas or Coolies, & make very good
page 14
servants when well trained; but it is very trying and tedious work training them. A planters life in Fiji is on the whole one of ease and comfort, but I have not now space to expand on these advantages.

John Little

b. 13 December 1782, d. 1 December 1848
FatherWilliam Little b. c 1740, d. b 1813
MotherHannah Watson b. 2 Feb 1765
     John Little was born on 13 December 1782 at Laversdale, Cumberland, England; Witnesses: Mary Watson and Betty Kindred.1,2,3,4 He was the son of William Little and Hannah Watson.
John Little's birth was recorded at the monthly meeting of the quakers, who recorded births but did not baptise. It appears that his birth was recorded at a number of different meetings, and the actual day of his birth is given variously as 13 Dec, 14 Dec and 30 Dec. The 13 Dec 1782 is the most frequent. All the records show that he was born at Laversdale in the parish of Irthington to parents William and Hannah Little.5
On 31 May June 1808 John Little was give permission to bury his grandfather, James Watson, at Thornyland, the site of a Quaker Meeting House. Thornyland is in the parish of Stapleton and the meeting house (now a Grade II listed property) can be located at coordinates Latitude 55.056575 (North), Longitude -2.8502573 (West).

John Little was a schoolmaster on 24 November 1813.7
The marriage also occurs in non-conformist record indexes as having occured in Holme, Cumberland. We know they were Quakers and there is a Quaker Meeting House in Wigton. Wikepedia has the following information which may explain the Holme/Wigton issue: Abbeytown, also known as Holme Abbey, is a village in Cumbria, England. It was built around the former Cistercian Holmcultram Abbey, the nave of the church of which now serves the parish as St. Mary's Church. ...... The village is located on the main Wigton to Silloth road and has a small range of local amenities including a pub, post office and two small shops. The buildings in the village mostly date from either the medieval period, especially those associated with the former abbey, the Victorian era, where much of the village was concerned with the railway line to Silloth or more recently when a large number of houses were built at "Friars Garth". The village is located on the edge of the Solway Coast area of outstanding natural beauty and the Cumbria Coastal Way passes through the village.12

William Little

b. 19 December 1797, d. before 1881
FatherWilliam Little b. c 1740, d. b 1813
MotherHannah Watson b. 2 Feb 1765
     William Little was born on 19 December 1797 at Rackbridge, Hethersgill, Cumberland, England; Rackbridge is in Stapleton parish. The location is at coordinates Latitude 55.028133 (North), Longitude -2.822300 (West).1 He was the son of William Little and Hannah Watson.
We know from the 1881 census that his daughter Elizabeth was a cousin to Jane Little, daughter of John Little of Carlise in Cumberland. The will of Jane Little, confirms that William Little is her uncle and that Elizabeth Little is his daughter. Therefore William and John were brothers. The ancestry for John Little (a Quaker family) has been traced back to his parents William and Hannah whose children were all born in Carlisle. John Little was a schoolmaster and later an accountant. He left a substantial amount of money (approx 8,000 pounds) in his will and his unmarried daughters appeared to have held shares in a railway company. The wealth appears to have come via John Little's wife, Elizabeth Wigham, the great granddaughter of Lord Cuthbert Wigham. John and Elizabeth's daughter Jane left an estate valued at over 19,000 pounds in 1888. Unfortunately no-one in the family married so there were no descendants, and as a result the money was spread widely on Jane's death, with some properties passing to William's daughter Elizabeth (who never married) and then upon her death to her sister Jane Little.2
William Little married Mary (?) circa 1824.
If William and Mary are the correct parents for Jane and Elizabeth then there is a possible marriage: 5 Jul 1824 William Little married Mary Dean at St Peter, Liverpool. However, there are reasons to doubt this William and Mary as the parents as we know the family were Quakers who did not baptise their children (but did keep records of births). The fact that their children were baptised in Liverpool St Peter therefore creates some doubt. It is possible that the Quaker (non conformist) records for Liverpool will show a different family. Also, this William's age is given as 21 years which is a bit late. This is a work in progress.3
For the 1851 census there is a William (55 years) and Mary Little (56 years) in Wetheral, Cumberland as visitors to John Sewell (farm labourer) and his wife Ann and family. This is interesting, because their daughter Elizabeth appears to have moved from London (1861 census) to Wetheral (1871 census). William's occupation is commercial traveller and his place of birth is Brampton, Cumberland. Mary was born in Crosby, Cumberland.4
William Little was a gentleman on 9 June 1862.5
William Little died before 1881 at England.2
William Little witnessed the will of Jane Little dated 3 April 1881 at Carlisle, Cumberland, England; See source reference for copy of will - not yet transcribed.2

William Little

b. circa 1740, d. before 1813
     William Little was born circa 1740; based on age at death.
William Little married Hannah Watson, daughter of James Watson and Mary (?), in April 1782 at Stapleton, Carlisle, Cumberland, England.1
In the front cover of a register of Quaker births, marriages and deaths is written a complete list of the children of William and Hannah - obviously written after their last child was born in 1803. This is the source used for the birth dates of their children, except where an earlier record exists then this is used if there is a disagreement in the dates (as for their first son John Little). There is another birth record for Jane giving date of birth as 27 January 1788 in records for the Society of Friends. These records confirm family stories of the early Ward or Little family being Quakers.2
The FamilySearch indexes list two marriages in Stapleton, Cumberland:
7 Apr 1782 William Little and Hannah Wilson
8 Ap 1782 William Little and Hannah Watson.
These are possibly the same marriage. Given that one of the witnesses to the birth of Hannah's first child was Mary Watson, I have assumed that the second marriage is correct.
Correspondence from Daphne Kennedy identifies a third marriage: William Little and Hannah Forrester on 20 May 1783 at Bewcastle Church. They are buried at Stapleton St Mary (1811 and 1837 respectively).1,2
In the Quaker records there is a burial of a William Little, age 97 years, on 11 Jun 1783 (buried 13 Jun) in the registration area of Solport and Carlisle. Place of abode is Hallees. This could be a candidate for the father of William Little who married Hannah Watson, although there are many William Little's around at this time.3
Three of William and Hannah's children were born at Rackbridge in Stapleton parish. The location of Rack Bridge is at coordinates Latitude 55.028133 (North), Longitude -2.822300 (West).
On 8 March 1806 William Little and Hannah Watson lived at Breckonhill, Kirklinton, Cumberland, England, This should possibly be Brackenhill.4
On 8 March 1806 William Little was a schoolmaster. This information came from the burial record of William and Hannah's son Thomas. Also noted was "not in membership" which probably relates to membership of the Quakers.4
William is noted as deceased on son John Little's marriage record in 1813.5
William Little died before 1813 at Cumberland, England.
