(1) We presume that various of the Langton families arose from different towns/villages called Langton. However, we have yet to be sure that we have found what connections there are between the different families. Other lines are on Langton01 (which leads into Langton02) and Langton03.
(2) Cross-references from elsewhere in the database indicate that, unless there was confusion between different Newtons and/or Waltons, the following family was of both Walton in Lincolnshire and Newton in Lancashire. We have seen (online) the suggestion that the Langtons of Newton in Lancashire were descended from the Langtons of Langton in Leicestershire.
Robert de Langton of Walton, Lincolnshire
1. John de Langton
  m. Alice Banastre (dau of James de Banastre 'of Newton' by Ellen le Boteler)
  A. Sir Robert de Langton of Walton (d 1361)
  i. John de Langton (dvp)
  a. Ralph de Langton of Walton 'and Newton' (b c1350, d 1406)
  m. Joan Radclyffe (dau of William Radclyffe)
  (1) Henry Langton of Walton
m. Agnes Davenport (dau of Sir John Davenport of Wheltrough by Margaret Done)
  (A) Sir Ralph Langton of Walton 'of Newton'
  There is some confusion as to who was Ralph's wife. Alternatives seen have been Joan, dau of Christopher Southworth, an Alice, and Joan, dau of William Baldersone by Margaret Stanley. Provisionally we show the latter, but there could be confusion with the alleged wife of his son Sir Henry, and the former as wife of his nephew, Rauf below.
  m. Joan Balderston (dau of William Balderston of Balderston by Margaret, dau of William Stanley)
  (i) Sir Henry Langton of Walton (b 1435, d 1490)
  We have seen Sir Henry's wife identified as Joanna, dau of William Balderstone by Margaret, dau of William Stanley of Hooton, but this looks like confusion with his mother.
  (a) Johanna Langton possibly of this generation
  m. Richard Sherborne of Stonyhurst (b by 1492, d 03.08.1513)
(1) The confusion mentioned above is far reaching with some sites showing too many generations, something that we have seen elsewhere as indicating that succession to a property has been taken to imply father to son transmission whereras in fact it had been cousin to cousin or similar.
(2) We have so far found surprisingly little on this important family in the Visitations. We hope to find more in due course but for the moment insert the following which comes from Visitation (Foster, Lancashire, 1567, 'Langton of Newton') which identifies the arms of the following as "Quarterly: 1,4 Argent, three chevronels gules; 2,3 a cross fleury, sable". Probably closely connected to the above was ...
  (B) Sir Richard Langton of Newton & Walton in Ledale, Lancashire possibly of this generation
m. Isabell Gerrard (dau of Sir Thomas Gerrard of the Brynne)
  (i) Rauf Langton of Newton & Walton
  m. Jane or Elizabeth Southworth (dau of Sir Christopher Southworth of Samlesbury (Sambsbury))

  m. Anne Leybourne (dau of Thomas Leybourne of Conswyke (Cunwik))
  ((A)) Thomas Langton of Newton (a 1567, d 20.02.1605)
  Foster ends showing Thomas (a 1567, eldest son) as married to Elizabeth, dau of Sir John Savage. It appears that he had been previouisly married to ...
  m1. (div 06.1580) Margaret Sherborne (dau of Richard Sherborne of Stoneyhurst)
  m2. (1580, sp) Elizabeth Savage (dau of Sir John Savage of Clifton)

  A daughter of an unnamed Langton of Newton & Walton, possibly of this generation, was ...
  B. Isabel Langton
  m1. Aymer Burdett
  m2. Ralph Hyde



Nicholas Langton, Mayor of York
(1) On 07.04.08, what we had on this line came mainly from fabpedigree.com, which did not identify its sources. It showed that John (m. Joan Nevill) was son of Thomas (by Anne, dau of Thomas Rochford) son of John (by Joan, dau of Nicholas Tamworth) which looks similar to a line of Langtons of Langon (see here) but then shows that earlier John as son of Henry (by Margery, dau of Roger Fulthorp) son of Alan (by Catherine, dau of John Lisle) which looks similar to the line of Langtons of Wynyard (see section below).
(2) Thanks to a contributor (JR, 26.01.22) for kindly drawing our attention to HoP ("John Langton") which provides the following connection.
1. John Langton of Mowthorpe, Mayor of York (d by 1413)
  m. Joan Nevill (dau of Sir Robert Neville (of Hornby & Farnley) by Margaret de la Pole)
  A. John Langton of Mowthorpe & Farnley, Sheriff of Yorkshire (b c1387, d 17.03.1459, MP)
  m. (by 03.1408) Euphemia (d 1463)
HoP reports that John had 5 sons (1 dvp) & 2 daughters. Shown by fabpedigree.com as of the next generation, which does look probable (if he was indeed of this family), was ...
  i. Sir Thomas Langton 'of Farnley?'
  The following is supported by Visitation (Worcestershire, 1569, 'Winter') which starts with this Sir Thomas and his wife Mary (sic) Aske. The fabpedigree site shows Thomas's wife as Euphemia, dau of Roger Aske by Elizabeth Pert. She may have been ...
