metadata.territorywomen.dc.title: Jeanie Littleton
Name: Littleton, Jeanie
Also known as: Littleson, Jennie
Occupation: Ladies Companion
Biographical notes: There is very little information about Jeanie Littleton (sometimes recorded as Littleson); she arrived in the Territory in May 1895 with Reverend Henry and Mary Ann Trewren. It is believed she was employed by the couple to look after their children. In 1895 Jeanie was one of the 82 women who enrolled to vote after the franchise was granted to South Australian and Territory women in 1894. Jeanie enrolled at the Palmerston polling place and her occupation was listed as "ladies companion". In April 1898 Jeanie departed the Territory on the same ship as the Trewrens.
