Birth: 1739 Portsmouth Rockingham County New Hampshire, USA Death: Jan. 13, 1805 Portsmouth Rockingham County New Hampshire, USA

Continental Congressman. He was a partner in a dry goods company, and was active in other business ventures. At the start of the Revolution he went to London in hopes of salvaging his investments, an act which caused some to accuse him of Loyalist leanings. Unsuccessful in this attempt he left England for New York City two years later. When he arrived he found New York City under British control and was restricted to the city because the British commander suspected he was allied with the Patriot cause. Langdon escaped in December of 1777 and returned to New Hampshire. He was a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives from 1778 to 1779. Langdon served in the Continental Congress in 1779, and was a member of New Hampshire's Executive Council from 1781 to 1784. In 1782 he served as Judge of the state Superior Court, an office he held again from 1786 to 1791. In 1790 he was impeached for neglect of duty, but the trial was ended when he resigned after accepting a federal appointment as Revolutionary War Claims Commissioner, a face saving measure arranged by his brother, US Senator John Langdon. Unsuccessful in subsequent attempts to be elected to Congress, Woodbury Langdon continued managing his business investments, remaining active until his death. (bio by: Bill McKern)
