The items listed below all concern historical persons – law-abiding or otherwise – named Little John (John Little, John Petit, Parvus Johannes etc.) 'Petit' and 'Parvus' can of course be French/Latin renderings not only of Little but also of Small or Short. This complication is probably less important for the 14th century and earlier than it would be for a later period, for apart from members of the upper classes, during most of the medieval period most Englishmen's surnames had not yet become fixed. They were still often essentially additional (descriptive) identifiers that could be added to the Christian name in contexts were unambiguous reference was desired. A Small might therefore conceivably appear in another context as a Short or Little or, if he earned his daily bread at the anvil, as a Smith. Nonetheless I have left out of consideration individuals surnamed Small or Short. The list will be long enough without them. Criminal Little Johns will we added when found; non-criminal Little Johns are generally only entered if they are recorded before c. 1500 or are of interest for one reason or another.
