About Joseph Langton

from http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Family:Joseph_Langton_and_Rachel_Varney_(6)

the Essex County Court Record for July 1652 in Salem, (Volume 1, p. 258), states that Joseph was charged with “evil usage” of his wife’s child. The court ordered that the child remain with its grandparents, William Varney and his wife.[11] Although not mentioned by name in the record, by implication, Rachel (who had a child by her first marriage to Thomas Cooke) is the daughter of William Varney and his wife.

In addition to demonstrating that the Rachel who married Joseph Langton was Rachel Varney, Barber and Delorey also cite court records that attest to her divorce of Joseph Langton, based on Langton’s on-going mistreatment of her son by Thomas Cooke.
