William Littlepage and Elizabeth Parker

William Littlepage was born around 1578, in Oxfordshire, England.

St Peter and St Paul, Aston Rowant

Some online trees have William as the son of George Littlepage (1562-1607) and Joan Searles (1565-1607), but this baptism was in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, 17 miles away, so I’m not sure this is the correct parentage.

William Littlepage married Elizabeth Parker on 1 May 1598 at St Peter and St Paul in Aston Rowant, Oxfordshire, England.

William appears in a few documents held at the Oxfordshire Archives –

  • 1641 The will of William Turner senior of Kingston Blount (father of his son Richard’s wife?) – a witness with Thomas Parker (brother or father of his wife Elizabeth Parker?)
  • 1614 will of Robert Hester of Aston Rowant – witness and son in law and overseer (husband of daughter Elizabeth Hester)

This is a little confusing, so perhaps Elizabeth Parker was a widow, and her maiden name was Hester?

Regardless, after William and Elizabeth’s marriage in 1598 they had five children –

  1. Richard b 1601 Aston Rowant d 1692 Kingston Blount, marr Elizabeth Turner
  2. Ann b 1603 Aston Rowant
  3. Bartholomew b 1606 d 1606
  4. Andrew b 1606 d 1606 Aston Rowant
  5. Robert b 1610 Aston Rowant d 1672

William and Elizabeth Littlepage were most likely buried in Aston Rowant, dates unknown.
