Hi, all, it looks as if we are getting closer on the Langtons of Langton-by-Partney, LIN. The Heralds tree I had has been corrected by Burkes Peerage. It was ok until the first nine generations, which were wrong in the names. Now, the line goes thus from the earliest known Langtons of this village:
1. Osbert de Langton c.1200
2. Osbert who m. Sara de Mumby
4. Thomas, who d. 1283
5. John who m. Joan Tamworth
6. Sir Thomas m. Anne Rochford
9. John m. Katherine Mewter
10. John m. Elizabeth Quadring
11. Alexander m. Cicely Billesby
++++++++++++++++++++++++++ most descendants come in from these preceeding. My line continues:
12. John m. Rose Littlebury
13. William of Winterton m. Joan Clayton
14. Robert of Keadby m. Margaret and was bur in 1672
down to me...
I am waiting for the full version, but the Heralds tree shows that many of the Langtons in other parts of England are also part of this family, descended from Gernations 9 onwards. The exceptions seem to be those from Lancashire and Yorkshire/Northumberland, who appear to be linked to each other, but not sure of details (no one is yet). The mystery of the wrong names on the Heralds genealogy is curious when you compare it to the Yorkshire/Lancashire lines, as the names of the wives turn up there. It COULD be that the LIN Langtons are descended from those further north, and the wrong names actually record the generations preceeding Osbert I Langton, but no proof. Just a theory of mine. There are a number of us working on it, so contact me on susan@webpastor and I will keep you updated.
