My great aunt Phyll and her daughter Lynda started research into our family tree many years ago, somehow making the Newbury link and managing to trace back to 1679 in St. Nicolas parish register when William Langton married Elizabeth Gibbs.
My Father, David researched the Langton ancestors for many years, making lots of contacts, many through seemingly random polite conversation with strangers. He posseses a wide range of knowledge about Langtons from several locations, and building many theories on the origin of the Langton name. I would add that he is also a very knowledgable english historian.
The majority of my work has been conducted over the internet, accessing records at archives, contacting others researching the langton family and finding books on the subject. Although alot of effort has gone into making this site what it is today, the site has only been in existence a couple of years, and much of the work was carried out beforehand over the preceeding years.
We launched the website in order to create a central repository of all Langton knowledge available, that would be accesible for free to anyone with a Langton interest. Our hope was that other Langton researchers would get in contact and in the spirit of collaboration would share what they know for the collective Langton good.
We are now in contact with more than 100 Langton researchers worldwide, in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Ireland, and elsewhere and many of these contacts have shared what they know, many having contributed significant amounts that account for years of research that they have conducted. This has allowed us to expand and make connections bettween different family trees, and a few people have even written articles that appear on the site.
Some have contributed financially which has been a great benefit in keeping the site running and in gaining access to new records.
You can see details of the donations here.
To all that have generously contributed facts, articles, genealogical lines etc. or donated cash to help support this website, I want to say Thank You! Without your help these pages would not be what they are today.
If your name is missing from this list, then I apologize. I have stopped actively requesting if contributors wish to be added to the list, due to the sheer number of people in contact with us, often with overlapping information and interests. The site is alot to maintain as it is, and this overhead is particularly time consuming.
If you are missing from the list though and wish to be on it, then please let me know, and I will be glad to add you to it. The email addresses added are encoded to avoid you getting spam, but we dont add them without your requesting us to. If you would like us to add your email address to the list then please ask us to and we would be happy to do that.
