Source notes

The printed source mentions this in a note, referring to the Aberdeen MS Council Register, vol. IV, pp. 133, 134.[2]

IRHB comments

So far the tally of vessels with Robin Hood-related names suggests that Little John was much more popular among the seafaring segment than the master outlaw. For boats and some ships the element 'Little' may of course had had a special and obvious appropriateness. See Ship names.
