Families covered: Langton of Keadby, Langton of Langton

Maddison published his Lincolnshire Pedigrees in 4 volumes. The following was reported on the Langton family in his ''Additional Pedigrees" section at the end: "After the pedigree was printed in Vol. II., pp. 580-586, it was discovered that the hitherto received descent of the present family was entirely wrong. I have, therefore, judged in best to reprint a large portion of the pedigree, as many additional dates have been furnished. - A.R.M."
