Edmund Littlefield was a Great Migration immigrant from Titchfield, Hampshire, England. He came to America, probably in 1635, and by 1641 he was living in Wells, Maine, as one of the first settlers of that location. From his eight surviving children and at least fifty-seven grandchildren, he founded one of Maine’s most prolific families. It is the rare York County family today that does not have Littlefields in its background.

Our Conferences

Maine Genealogical Society has steadily gained a reputation for the quality of its annual Fall Conference, striving to bring national speakers to the state.

We’ve also developed a Spring Workshop dedicated to exploring one topic in more depth than a conference permits.
