LITTLEPAGE, Lewis, diplomatist, born in Hanover county, Virginia, 19 December, 1762; died in Fredericksburg, Virginia, 19 July, 1802. He was graduated at William and Mary in 1778, and being a relative of John Jay, then minister to Madrid, he joined him abroad. He volunteered in the expedition of the Duc de Crillon against Minorca in 1782, and subsequently accompanied the Prince of Nassau-Siegen to the siege of Gibraltar, and thence to Constantinople and Warsaw. He was honored for many years with the esteem and confidence of Stanislas, king of Poland, under whom he held, among other offices, that of ambassador to Russia. He was created a knight of the order of St. Stanislas, chaimberlain and confidential secretary, and acted as a special envoy in several important negotiations. When Stanislas sided with the Torgovitza Confederates in 1792, Littlepage returned to Virginia.
