Many thanks,excellent work
I should be delighted to send you my file on the file if you would like

My information on Nich of Lawhitton 1711-82 and descendants comes from Burke
Langman of Eaton Sq became baronets in 1906
- so Burke would have worked on info given by the family at that time
Burke does not record Nich's elder brother Wm of Newton Farm 1709-69
As for Nich's ancestors,Burke records them up to John of Lesnewth d 1605 in the same way you & Lena have

I have not heard of Cyril Langman's interesting booklet
- when was this written ?

Some questions on your information
2 Wm of Lawhitton d 1732
- was he b 1666 in Lesnewth ?
I have not see this date before which makes his father aged 48(enough for 2 generations)
Grace Prout I have as bap 26.1.1663 Lawhitton[not 1670]
Did they have 7 children and if so,what are the names?
What/when was the family move from Cornwall to Northumerland ?

3 Wm of Tavistock 1686-1711+ and Phillipa Heard
- did they have 4 children ?
I only know two,namely Wm 1709-69 and Nich 1711-82

4 Eliz Gill(wife of Wm 1709-69)
- I have her as bap 1715 Bere Ferrers[not 1720]

5 Mary Gill Langman bap 1742
- I have her marriage with her cousin John of Tavistock as 1764 Lawhitton[not 1759]
Did they have any children ?
You have cousin John of Tavistock as bap 1735 Lawhitton
and his father Thos bap 1703 Lawhitton
- Thos therefore was very much younger than his brother Wm of Tavistock 1686-1711+

Lawhitton is a tiny village
In 1851 its population was 542
In 1951 its population had dropped to 267
I take it that someone on this forum has all the Langman entries in the Lawhitton parishh register
The IGI gives a few baptisms & marriage only

I would expect the inhabitants of Lawhitton to have a lot to do with Launceston nearby
But the Langmans seem to have a lot to do with Tavistock (bigger but further away)instead
- I wonder why
