Part I of the story from Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift (1726).
Two countries were at war (Lilliput & Blefuscu) over which end of the egg to open (big vs little). The Lilliputians were "little-endian" while the Blefuscians were "big-endian". And that my friends is the first instance of the difference between big-endian and little endian! The terms long pre-dated modern digital computers.
