The Clan Little Society is saddened to learn of the recent passing of Crawford Little, son of the late James Crawford Little (Dr. Johnnie), founder of our Society.

From the funeral notice: Andrew Crawford Little (Crawford) Peacefully, in his sleep, on Thursday 24th November 2022, in the Alexandra Unit, Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, aged 68 years. Crawford, beloved Husband to the late Carolyn, doting Father to Jamie, David & Justin, a cherished Grandpa to Jack & George. A much loved Brother, Brother in Law, Uncle and a Friend to many who will be sorely missed by all those who knew him. Crawford's funeral will take place at Roucan Loch Crematorium on Friday 9th December 2022 at 1pm, to which all friends are respectfully invited to attend.

Crawford was our current Armiger. In 2013, the care of the Clan Little Society was returned to him as legitimate heir to the title "Little of Morton Rig." Crawford leaves an heir as well, James Crawford Little-- James the Younger of Morton Rig. We look forward to Jamie taking up the Arms to lead at an appropriate time in the not-too-distant future.

WHAT WE DO! Here are a few things Clan Little has done in the past ... We gather. We compare genealogies. We march (a lot) proudly with our tartan. We meet new and old friends. We educate in our communities and schools. We compete. We volunteer at blood drives and community events for children. We give scholarships for Scottish education such as dance, piping, and language study. We worship together. We meet interesting people. We honor our military. We party! WE CELEBRATE BEING NAMED LITTLE

Membership gives you access to the newsletter "The Reiver" and its archives, the Quartermaster's store where you can buy branded jewelry and clothing, including the "Little of Morton Rig" tartan fabric (although we do not make kilts), and our extensive genealogy database.

Annual dues for Clan Societies across America are $25, but we're keeping costs to a minimum so we can charge only $10 US per year (about £8, 9€, or $15 NZ) and we intend to maintain that price. Of course, if you are a Life Member, you're already paid up!   Just register in our new members area and we'll do the rest! Have questions? Feel free to contact the Secretary for answers.
