Families covered: Langton of Bristol, Langton of Langton

(1) We presume that various of the Langton families arose from different towns/villages called Langton. However, we have yet to be sure that we have found what connections there are between the different families. Other lines are on Langton03 and Langton04 (draft).
(2) We have no real reason for doing so but we 'have the feeling' that much of the upper section on this page could be spurious. We have yet to find out whether or not (and, if so, how) the early Langtons of Newton (in Lancashire) connected to this family, which we have seen reported as descended from Langtons of Langton in Leicestershire.

  Maddison ends with this John, describing him as 'of Bristol' and noting that he was ancestor of Langtons of Somerset.

  A (later) Joseph Langton of Newton Park had an only child Bridget who (in 1783) married William Gore who changed his name to Gore-Langton and inherited Newton Park. The Visitation record, as amended by the Harleian editor, does not show this Joseph as having had a successor son.
