History Of Littleton New Hampshire

Genealogy Compiled By George C. Furber Revised And Enlarged By Ezra S. Stearns
Published For The Town By The University Press, Cambridge, Mass. 1905
THE genealogy of Littleton was compiled by GEORGE C. FURBER in 1896 and printed in 1897-8.
A fire destroyed the work in 1898 and made necessary a reprint,
which was prepared under the supervision of EZRA S. STEARNS.
The extent of the errata is chiefly due to incorrect material furnished by individuals concerning their ancestry.

This lineage is from the records in the old Coll. of Heraldry, London, Eng.; Co. Histories, especially that of Surrey Co., Eug.; from a family record, sent by the late Lord Dorchester to Rev. Hiram Carleton, East Sandwich, Mass., an American authority; Colonial Records of Mass., and the town and church records of Rowley, Haverhill, and Bradford, Mass.; the New Eng. Historic Genealogical Society; the Essex Institute; from family records, deeds, wills, and cemetery inscriptions. The history, character, and social position have been obtained from Parliamentary records, records of real estate conveyances, and records contained in State papers, especially treaties with foreign nations. The family arms are those held by the Carletons of Lincoln and Oxfordshire, Eng., and are as follows: ARMS, Argent on a bend sable, three mascles of the field. CREST, Out of a Ducal coronet, or an unicorn's head sable; the horn twisted of the first and second. Motto, Non ad perniciem. [These arms must not be confounded with those of the present House of Dorchester, which sprang from the Carletons of Fermaugh, Ireland, and originated with Sir Guy Carleton. That line is from John(16).] The name Carleton is from the Saxon ceorl (signifying husbandman) and ton, a town. The Carleton family is a unit. The name de Carleton was originally a title of lordship.
