The Langford Family 1871 – 1957

In the beginning

The Langford family are, without doubt, the longest serving family in the village, living at No.28 Creekmouth Cottages.

Jesse and Elizabeth Langford are mentioned in the 1871 census, together with their children Ellen, Joseph, Sarah, Ann and Richard. Just a few years later Jesse Jnr and Elizabeth had joined the family group.

Migration around the Village

The Langford family appeared to move around the village from house to house, probably as family circumstances dictated. In total they resided at  5 different properties in the village before moving to Thames View Estate in 1957.
