About Sir John Langton, Kt.

Sir, Sheriff John Langton‏‎ #20‎, son of John Langton of Lincolnshire and Anne Palmer of Boston and Winthorpe‏. Born ‎24 Mar 1561 Boston, Lincolnshire, UK, died ‎10 Nov 1616 Belleau, Lincolnshire, UK believe his death was 1616 as his will is dated that year.‎, 55 years Langton, (Sir) John (Lancton) of co. Lincoln, arm. fil. Magdalen Coll., matric. entry under date 22 Dec., 1576, aged 16; of Langton, co. Lincoln, high sheriff 1612, knighted July, 1603, student of Lincoln's Inn 1579, made his will 25 Sept., 1616, proved 5 Dec., following; brother of William 1589,father of Peregrine 1607, Roger 1605, and Robert 1620. See Foster's Inns of Court Reg. Alumni Oxonienses 1500-1714

Had a carriage to get from A-B. Quite early for carriages and you wouldn't really expect them so early in Lincs, but he had one.

William Skipworth mentioned him in his will. Sir Johns great grandfathers sister, Frances had married a Skipworth, so seems the same family.

later of Bolton (apparently) Sherrif of Lincolnshire. One source says he was born in Leicstershire. One source has him marrying someone 1606 in Leicester, Leicestershire

source pointing to Leicstershire, says he had a daughter by an unknown marriage, called Mary. Birth: Bef Feb 1607 in Wigton Magia, Leicestershire, England Death: 7 Apr 1697 in Southold, Long Island (Now Suffolk Co., ) Who went on to marry Barnabus I. HORTON b: 13 Jul 1600 in Mousely, Lancastershire, England. Dates dont match up really. I think it is more likely that this is his Sister, not Daughter. She would have been the right age to have got married in 1600, and we know she exists.

One source has him having two children, John and Mary: - John , 4Th. LANGTON 1 was born Sep 1609 in Leicester, Leicestershire, England.

- Mary LANGTON was born before 14 Feb 1606/1607 and died 22 Oct 1670.

Describes himself as Late of Langton

mayor of Boston 1611.
