... At the enquiry at Woodville into a fire which destroyed the house of T. W. Little, evidence showed that Little had bought furniture in Palmerston North and taken over 50 insurance on it. He had afterwards removed to Woodville, and it appeared that certain furniture had been sent to Masterton. The evidene of Little was that certain items of this furniture had been lent to him by his father, to whom it had been returned, and that other items belonged to his daughter. The verdict of the jury was that there was no evidence to show the origin of the fire, but the jury wished to express the opinion that the majority of the articles mentioned in the proof of loss were not in the house at the time of fire, and that the evidence of the Litlle family was very unsatisfactory

13 June 1905
... A girl, named Ellen Little, aged about eighteen years, was arrested at Masterton, this morning, by Constable Brosnahan, of Woodville, on a charge of having committed perjury at a Coroner's inquiry, held in Woodville, on 19th May
The circumstances connected with the case are that the girl's father, Thomas William Little,had his furniture heavily insured, and the whole was alleged to have been destroyed by a fire, which occurred on 10th April, in the house in which he was then living. There were suspicious circumstances, and an inquiry was held. Certain of the articles which were alleged to have been destroyed were supposed to have been found in the possession of his daughter, Ellen Little, but she swore in her evidence that she had purchased them at Palmerston North.
The girl's arrest this morning, on a charge of perjury, is the result of further evidence having been obtained by the polie. The accused, who has been living in a house at Kuripuni for some time (her condition being such as to elicit sympathy on her behalf) was charged with the offence at the Police Court, to-day, before Mr T. Duncan, J.P., and remanded,on her own recoginsance of 5, to appear at Woodville, on the 22nd inst.

... John LITTLE (1825-1913), an old age-pensioner, was charged with unlawfully assaulting his son, Thomas William Little, the said offence being ommitted on May 11th.
Defendant pleaded not guilty
Informant, who was blind (then aged 32), deposed that his father came over on the day in question, and after some conversation regarding informant's children, wanted to fight one of the latter, who was present. Witness interfered, and defendant tackled him and committed the assault complained of.
P.C. Buckthought deposed to being called to the house by informant's son. Found the defendant holding informant down on the floor by the wrists. Knew nothing about the cause of the disturbance.
Defendant, in defence, said he was remonstrating with his son for not keeping his children in check.
His Worship dismissed the information, advising defendant to keep away from his son in future.

22 August 1913
... Mr John Little, an old resident of Masterton, died at the Hospital last night. Mr Little, who was 88 years of age, had been an inmate of the Solway Home for some time, but owing to his weak state of health he was recently transferred to the Masterton Hospital for treatment

Charles Maidment was charged with having made use of threatening language towards his wife, Hannah Maidment, wherefore she prayed that he might be bound over to keep the peace towards her. Mr. H. H. Travers appeared for the complainant and Mr. Edward Shaw for the accused, who denied the offence. The prosecutrix deposed that she had lived a most unhappy life with her husband, and had been obliged to leave the house and go to service. Some days ago she met the defendant, who said he would blow her brains out if she continued to go to Roe`s house at the Lower Hutt. In cross-examination by Mr Shaw, the witness said that she had deserted her husband for the purpose of living with Roe. She was not cohabiting with that person. She admitted that she had shown her daughter linen intended for a child about to be born, but denied she told the girl that it was for a child by Roe. She had been separated from her husband for over a year. At this stage Mr Travers said the revelation had taken him by surprise, and he did not intend to proceed further with it. The information was dismissed with costs

16 October 1883
Charles ASHTON, a young man of about 20, denied the paternity of a male (sic) child of which Mary Esther Maidment is the mother. Mr Shaw appeared for the latter. The evidence of Miss Maidment, who resides at the Hutt, showed that the defendant, who was a country letter carrier, in receipt of a salary of 22s 6d per week, was the father of the baby, and had acknowledged the paternity. A sister of the witness proved that the young man had admitted he was the father, and had offered to contribute 2s 6d weekly toward its support. The accused, on being placed in the box, denied all the statements of the young women. On the application of Mr. Shaw, the further hearing of the case was adjourned to the Hutt

17 October 1883
At the fortnightly sitting of the Hutt Court this morning, the hearing of the affiliation case of Maidment v Ashton was resumed. Evience was given by a sister of the mother of the child to the effect that the defendant, who was a country letter-carrier, had admitted the paternity of the baby, and contributed 7s 5d towards its support. The father of the girl deposed that in the course of a conversation which he had with the young man, he admitted the child was his, and offered to take it away with him. The mother declined to allow the baby to go out of her possession, and Ashton thereupon said that he would do what he could towards its maintenance. For the defence, a young man residing at the Lower Hutt stated that on several occasions he had seen the girl criminally intimate with youths residing near her father`s house. His Worship (Mr Hardcastle) adjudged Ashton to be the putative father, and ordered him to contribute 4s weekly towards the support of the child
