William, the next son born in 1828 married Elizabeth Bailey in 1849. We know that Elizabeth was under the marriageable age and that William appears to have died just a few days after their marriage, at age 21.
Richard, born (1836-1918) married Emily Maddox in 1856 and they had 6 children, they appear to have lived in Brentford for most of their married life. Richard was also a waterman and lighterman, and the family were living at the Watermans Arms Beerhouse in 1871. It is not clear if Richard and his wife were also running the beerhouse, but it is possible he was just a boarder.
Eizabeth Littleboy married my Great Great Grandfather William Ellis, and they had 11 children. The family moved around a great deal as William was in the army (including in India) before they eventually settled in Hale, Surrey.
Martha Littleboy (b1839) married Henry Chrles Davis in 1859 and they had 5 children, by 1891 Martha was a widow, aged 53 and living with her daughter Sarah and two illegitimate grandchildren. By 1901, Martha was living in two rooms at the Ingrams Alms House, Islington, London. She appears to have died in Islington in 1918.
Ann Maria (1842-1907) married George Clifford Pearce in 1862 and was also a Lighterman, but also ran the Alexandra Beer House from 1871. After George died in 1895 Ann Maria took over the Beer House in Brentford, and seems to have been the licensee until she died in 1907.
