William Langhorne
1. William Langhorne of Bedford the first mentioned by Visitation (Hertfordshire)
m. Elizabeth Borne (dau of Richard Borne of Bedford)
  A. William Langhorne of Langhorne (a 1634, 2nd son) this line followed by Visitation (Hertfordshire)

  Details on Sir William come from TCB (vol 4, 'Langorne of the Inner Temple', p45) & BEB1841 ('Langhorne of London'). It is a bit presumptuous for us to show that Sir William (son of William of London) was the same person as the William shown by the Visitation as the eldest child of this generation but, except for the lack of mention by Visitation of his sister Elizabeth, it appears to be likely.

Vivian identifies the arms of the following family as "Az, a chevron between three escallops, Or" and spells the family name as Langhern or Langherne more than he does Langharne. That is similar to the arms of Langholme of Conisholme which suggests that the families may have been connected.
