Biographical history

William Thomas Lyttleton (1786?-1839), soldier and settler, was a distant connexion of the well-known Lyttelton family of Hagley Hall, Stourbridge, Worcestershire, England. He used the family crest on his silver, gave a family name, Westcote, to one of his sons, and the name, Hagley, to his property in Van Diemen's Land and to the near-by village. Lyttleon arrived in Hobart with his wife (Ann Hortle) and family on 4 October 1825 and was granted 560 acres (227 ha) near Westbury and 800 acres (324 ha) in the Meander district. With William Archer he rented another 2560 acres (1036 ha) at Norfolk Plains. For more information see:
