The legendary founder of Littleport was King Canute. A fisherman gave the king shelter one night, after drunken monks had denied hospitality. Following his punishment of the monastics, the king made his host the mayor of a newly founded village.
Littleport was the site of the Littleport Riots of 1816. War-weary veterans from the Battle of Waterloo had returned home, only to find that they could not get any work, and that the grain prices had gone up. They took to the streets and smashed shops and other buildings until troops came to put an end to the riots. St George’s church registers were destroyedduring the riots. The remaining registers start from 1754 (marriages), 1756 (burials), and 1783 (baptisms). Some original historical documents relating to the riots are held by Cambridgeshire Archives and Local Studies at the County Record Office Cambridge.
In 2003, a Harley-Davidson statue was unveiled in Littleport to commemorate the centenary of the famous motorcycle company. William Harley, the father of the company’s co-founder William Sylvester Harley, had been born in Victoria Street, Littleport, in 1835, before emigrating to the USA in 1859.
