[This page was first launched on 31.03.09 as Draft. It was moved here after review led to the acceptance that there was little chance of our making a significant improvement to it in the near future and that it was 'good enough' to be promoted into the main database.]

(1) This family's name is often spelt Langharne. It seems that it was originally spelt "Lacharn" though it is not clear how much this is to do with differing translation from Welsh to English.
(2) Dwnn, in a note, suggests that the arms of this family, shown on a monument, for the Ann Laugharne who m. Sir Francis Meyrisk, were quartered: "first and fourth, three lions' heads erased' and second and third, three eagles' heads erased".
