William John Langton
1778 - 1860

William John Langton, was born in 1778 at Yorkshire, England. He married in Yorkshire, England, Mary Eden Ridsdale, daughter of _______Ridsdale and ______ (Eden) Ridsdale. He d. in 1860.

William John Langton married Margaret Eden Ridsdale in Yorkshire, England. She was a young lady of a prominent family who was disowned by her father after the marriage. She was born at Eden Castle, County of Durham, England and was the daughter of ______Ridsdale and _____(Eden) Ridsdale. (Eden - variations are Eaden, Edens, Edon, Eeden.)
(A Robert Eaden, parish of Alcester in Warwickshire, England in 1632, married Margaret Walderne, baptized 8 Oct 1612. See NEHGR Vol 8. p75.)

William John Langton came to the New World of North America as early as 1828, embarking at Quebec where he resided for a time and where some of his children were born, thence he came to Cobourg, Ontario, where he held a position of some kind in the Customs Office, having charge of goods coming off ships at the wharf; thence, he removed to Clarke Township, and settled on a farm near Orono, in Lot 17, concession 3, after which, about 1854/5, he removed to Peterborough where he died in 1860. Another grand-child says 1857, age 79 and was buried in the Wesleyan Methodist Cemetery at the north end of George Street. The Langton's were Wesleyan Methodists.
The Commissioner of Customs, at the Department of National Revenue, at Ottawa, Canada, on May 5, 1928, wrote, "I can find no record in this department of a Mr. Langton having been employed as a Customs Officer at Cobourg", Signed C.B.Patten. Therefore, it may be that John Langton was possibly an employer of the Customs Office at Cobourgh, Ontario.
The Registry, Surrogate Court, Tax, and other records at Cobourg reveal nothing as to John Langton or any of his family which signifies that he was not a land holder there, and that the and his family did not continue to reside there. (Tradition in family says that he had something to do with land grants. He is said to have a big farm.)
Two of his grandsons, Dr. William Charles Dumble and H.N. Jay, both of Toronto, Ontario, Canada say that grandfather, John Langton, lived at one time in Cobourg.
As his daughter, Sarah Ellen, attended the private school in Peterboro about 1854-6 (The Mrs. Flavelle School) and there in 1857 married John Jacob Astor Marshall, we must infer that John Langton moved to Peteboro about this time.
The descendants of John Langton hold that a fortune of 38,000 pounds sterling was left at Sheffield, England to the children of John Langton and wife Margaret, ant that the Sheffield's of Sheffield were cousins of the children of said John Langton; also that James Langton, son of said John and Margaret, went to England to see about this reputed fortune, but while there took sick, came back home to Minneapolis, Wisconsin and died before an understanding as to settlement was effected. It seems that no one else to this date (1928) has ever done anything towards determining the rights, if any, of the said John and Margaret's children. George Marshall wrote, "One of the family had to go to England to be identified for money, 38,000 pounds sterling without interest." " Uncle James Langton, grandmother's brother went over and he said he claims he never got anything out of it. Uncle James then lived in Minneapolis and it is thought he put his money in the Manitoba land boom. Uncle James was Nellied Brooms father. Nellie Langton used to carry $10,000, in her stocking. She now owns a ranch of prunes in Oregon."
Another tradition of the family is that John Langton came to Canada from Sheffield, England. John Langtons's grandson Oscar Scott, writes, "Grandfather William John Langton died in Peterborough and was buried in the Wesleyan Methodist Cemetery". No record at LIttle Lake Cemetery of the removal of John Langton from the W.M Cemetery to the L.L. Cemeter;y appears. Hence, he lies in the neglected W.M. Cemetery. His wife, Margaret died in Owen Sound in 1873 at the age of 80, and is there buried. Oscar Scott writes, "John Langton's children were all born in England except Jane and James who were born at Quebec, and Sarah Ellen who was born at Cobourg, and he names them as born in the order listed below:
