This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

Arthur Langford of Kilmackevett (or Kilmhaveil, co. Antrim)

D.+ other issue (d unm) - Theophilus of Kinsale (d before 1725), Sussanna
2. Susanna Langford or Longford apparently of this generation
  m. Francis Courtenay of Aughagallan
TCB reports that Sir Hercules, 1st Bart, has been "erroneously described" as son of Sir Roger, posthumous son of Roger of Muckmayer (d 1609), nephew of Sir Hercules (dsp 16.04.1639). From this we get the following family which is presumably closely connected to the above albeit probably a generation earlier.
?? Langford
1. Sir Hercules Langford (dsp 16.04.1639)
2. Roger Langford of Muckmaire (Muckamore) father of Mary (?), presumed brother of Sir Hercules and father of Roger
  A. Roger Langford of Muckmayer (Muckamore) (d 1609)
  i. Sir Roger Langford (b 1609/10)
  B. Mary Langford possibly of this generation, dau of Roger of West Downe in Devon
  m. Sir Hugh Clotworthy of Massereene (d 12.02.1630)
  Mary and Hugh were parents of (inter alia):
- Mary who married Henry Upton and had Mary who married Sir Hercules, 1st Bart, above.
- (see note below) Lettice who married Edward Rowley and had Sir John who married Mary Langford, dau of Sir Hercules, 1st Bart, above.
Note that it is a presumption, not yet confirmed, that Lettice was sister of Mary, producing a generational overlap. The intermarriages between the Langfords, Rowleys, Clotworthys and Uptons will be investigated further in due course.
