LITTLEY - Australia
I was wondering whether any one has information on a Henry James LITTLEY who is mentioned on the Nominal Roll (1899 to 1902) as being in the Australian Forces in the Boer War?His number was: 2971 and his rank was Trooper and his Unit was: 3 NSW MNTD RIFLES.
Could he by any chance be related to Henry Anford (Handford?) LITTLEY who married Catherine O'BRIEN at Scots Church, Pitt St, Sydney, NSW By James Fullerton, LLD on 14 March 1855?Henry Anford LITTLEY is believed to have been born at Exeter, Devonshire, England about 1828.He was a plasterer by trade.It is possible that his parents were:Samuel LITTLEY and Sarah Handford BROOKES who married at Exeter Saint Sidwell, Devonshire, England on 20 November 1826.
Henry appears to have been married twice, his second wife being a Caroline WATSON from Queensland, Australia.
