Langford Family History

Recorded in several spellings including Langford, Lankford, and Longford, this is an English locational surname. It ultimately derives from any of the places called Langford or Longford in the counties of Bedfordshire, Devonshire, Essex, Norfolk, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Somerset and Wiltshire. These places are mostly recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Langheforda, Langeford(e) and Longaford", and all but one share the same meaning and derivation, which is "the long shallow river crossing", from the Olde English pre 7th Century word "langa", meaning long, with "ford", a shallow area of river.

Hello. I've just joined this site. My family hails from Mount Mellick, County Laois. I'm descended from Isaac Langford (1767-1811) and his wife Betsy Westman (1770-1843). I've met a couple of my Irish relatives and am interested in meeting more and learning more about our family.
