From Ralph Langton and Agnes Hartley descend the Manchester Langtons. Although initially farmers they became iron moulders (via Henry the blacksmith in Chorley) and gradually moved from Chorley through Preston to Manchester in the 19th century, following the growth of industry. Iron moulding remained a Langton family characteristic.
