I can help with the origin of Langille's to Canada....Alexander was not
one of the immigrants.
in 1752, 2 ships , the Betty and the Sally carried a few of the Langille
family from their home in Montbeliard, France (was of German occupation
then) to Halifax, then on to Lunenburg, N.S.
Leopold Frederick Langille(1728) on the Betty, stayed in Lunenburg, and
is the head of the "South Shore" Langille's
David Langille(1715), his son Jean-Jacques(1736), and stepson
Jacques(1743), were all on the ship Sally, and moved from Lunenburg to
River John about 1771. Mathias Langille(Matthew), David's brother, was
on the ship Betty.
Decendants of Mathieu and his brother David, son Jean-Jacques, and
stepson Jacques, have become known as the "North Shore" Langille's
Al Fletcher has a good site on the history and genealogy of the Langille's: Montbeliard.org , as well
as Karen Fletcher's site of Langille's
:www.freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~Langille. Christoph Langille (1797) is married to Catherine Mattatall (1803)in Al Fletchers genealogy page. check it out.
There are a few more
good ones around if you search.
If I can be of further help...just ask,
Bob Langill, Montreal,Canada, eh!
father of James Langill, brother of William James Langill, son of
William James Langill, g.son of S.James Langill, gg.son of James William
Langill, gggson of James Wadell Langill.
