Welcome to "Lost Langtons"

This website exists to publish the genealogy of the dozen or so distinct Langton families and encourage the sharing of information on the Langton family for free in a central repository. The database contains more than 20,000 different Langton individuals from shortly after the Norman conquest of England in 1066 through to the modern day in which Langtons live all over the world.

The database is updated around the beginning of each month and was last updated 01 October 2013.
