Hi Paul

I don't know if I have useful information or not.

My wife has LITTLEHALES ancestry clustered around Church Stretton, Wentnor, Clun and The Overs, Ratlinghope.

1841 & 1851 Census lists a William (b1816 Church Stretton) & Elizabeth LITTLEHALES (b1817 Stanage) living in Moorhouse, Wentnor. Occupation AgLab.

Of similar age, a different William (b1817 Pontesbury) & Jane LITTLEHALES (b1818 Leighton) are with Abel HAMER at Coalpit Bank, Wombridge, Wellington. The FMP transcription has an error as William is listed as a Shoe Maker's wife. Jane is listed as a lodger and William as a visitor.

Maybe a few generations back there was a common relative as Church Stretton and Pontesbury are so close - hope this helps.
