Just wanted to share how important this info. may turn out to be for me.
The ancestor I'm working on just at the moment was a freed slave named Lott
LITTLE. I have no idea how he became a slave, nor how he obtained his
freedom (though I suspect the Rev. War).
Thanks to David's wonderful share of information, I see a potential line of
research into cordwaining, apprenticeships, etc. in Colonial New Hampshire.
Incidentally, more information on cordwaining can be found at
There is no other list like this one. By far the best, and I'm so pleased I
posed the question. Thank you all!!!

Thank you, but all I did grab some material from a couple of sources
cobble it together. I'm used to doing research so this wasn't any big
effort. Just happy to be of help to this great list.
