Langdons of Augusta, Frederick, Montgomery & Washington Counties

Please do Spotisadog the favor of citing your source : >
I have spent a lot of time in courthouses and on the web to compile the records found here. I would love your comments, additions or corrections. I will be sure to give you credit for your work.

The following records deal with what seems to be a family unit of LANGDONs. It is not possible to tell if the Joseph mentioned simply had property in both Augusta County and Frederick County or moved northward to Frederick after finding the rural life in the sparsely populated Augusta Co. did not suit him. It may have been that his land was on the boundary between the two counties. It is also hard to say if one Joseph was the son of the other.This family seems to have continually been moving down the valley toward the southwest in Virginia, ending finally in Washington County. Members of this family moved into the southern states and also took part in the westward migration.

I note that this family is very consistant in the spelling of its name throughout the years, probably because the Langdons were literate.

The Planting of New Virginia, Warren R. Hofstra

p. 132/3 “Most of those deposed in the case had come to the Opequon settlement from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. How they heard of opportunities for land in Virginia composed a crucial part of their settlement stories. For many, the news came by word of mouth, or as New Yorker Joseph Langdon put it, “by the common fame of goodness and Cheapness of land.” Enticed by “his Majesty’s Encouragements offered to Settle there,” Langdon also knew of the imperial purpose behind the new settlement”. (30 Mar 1754 “Answer of Joseph Langdon . . . Hite v. Fairfaix, transcript by McKay)

p. 134 “What progress Joseph Langdon made in securing land was as muddled and haphazard as Roger’s. Arriving at Opequon “he did make Search for land and did find some to his liking” in a bend of the Shenandoah’s North Fork a few miles south of Roger’s holding, but “before he did settle the same [he] did hear of the orders of Hite.” Off he went to “mr. Hite and told him the affair and where the Land lay.” To Langdon’s surprise, Hite “intirely denied to have any claim to it and would have nothing to do with it.” So Langdon went to Mr. Hite’s parter, Robert McKay, who “would sell him the Land.” The only guarantee Langdon received, however, was an order by McKay to his son that if “he should die before a Deed could be made to see that . . . [Langdon] should not be hurt or disturbed.” As to the usual price of 3 pounds per hundred acres, McKay responded that Langdon, not being among the first settlers, “must give a small matter more.” About all this confusion Langdon lamented that “when he came [to Opequon] he was intirely ignorant of the new methods men had taken to make themselves Estates at the Expense of other poor men to wit by obtaining order of Council for a great Quantity & selling it to those that came for relief at such prices as they could get.”

Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia, O’dell, Cecil
p. 419 “. . .Joseph Langdon, . . . deposed in a sworn statement that they “removed from Pennsylvania and the Jerseys (East and West New Jersey) to this Colony (Virginia) and settled their land at great expense and trouble and considerably improved them, and hope to be quited, (release from Hite/Fairfax lawsuit).”

6 Mar 1771 Estate Bond – Joseph Langdon — Frederick County, Virginia [Joseph the father or Joseph, son of Joseph?]

Know all Men by these Present that we Jonathan LANGDON, Burr HARRISON, John TIPTON and James MOORE Are held and firmly bound . . . Justices in the Commission of the Peace for Frederick County, in the sum of One Thousand Pounds Currency to be paid to the said Justices of Frederick County their Executors Administrators and Assigns, to the which Payment well and truly to be made, we bind ourselves, our and every of our Heirs, Executors and Administrators and Assigns, to the which Payment well and truly to be mad, we bind ourselves, our and every of our Heirs, Executors and Administrators, jointly and feverally firmly by theses Presents, sealed with our Seals, and dated this Sixth~~~~ Day of March 1771 ~

The Condition of the above Obligation is that if the above bound Jonathan LANGDON Administrator for all the Goods, Chattels and Credits of Joseph LANGDON Deceased, do make or cause to be mad a true and perfect Inventory of all and singular the Goods, Chattels and Credits of the said deceased, which have or shall come to the Hands, Possession or Knowledge of him the said Administrators for into the Hands or Possession of any other Person or Persons for him and the fame so made do exhibit or cause to be exhibited into the County Court of Frederick at such Time as he shall be thereunto required by the Court, and the fame Goods, Chattels and Credits, and all other Goods, Chattels and Credits of the said deceased at the Time of his Death . . .

It would seem as if these records are for another Joseph since from the bond above a Joseph Langdon d. late 1770 or early 1771. The question can this be the father that is still alive? If it is not, is this the son of Joseph or the son of Jonathan, or even the son of Thomas? It is possible that the presence of Joseph on the rent rolls and being mentioned as having adj. land merely means the land is still held in his name even though he died a few years previously.

One Response to Langdons of Augusta, Frederick, Montgomery & Washington Counties

  1. Carole Burris says:

    I am a descendant of the Worley Family through both my father and my mother’s lines. John Worley Jr. who married a Lansdon (Landsdown). was my 5x G-GF in my Dad’s line. My 3x G-GF was Elisha Russell. A document from the National Archives says his wife’s name was Nancy Worley. I was able to follow their migration to Pickens GA and her brother, William, actually migrated with them. In 1850, he is living between Elisha and Nancy Worley Russell and Elisha’s daughter (my GG-GM), Rachel (Russell) and Ancel Roe Wigington. Ancel Roe and Rachael’s son, James Walter Wigington (My G-GF) married Molissa Landsdown) who was a descendant of Williams Lansdon/Langston of VA.
    My Mom was a Gibson and descends from Elizabeth Worley, who married Thomas Gibson. Their son, John, or William “John”. married Mary Lockett. Their son, Elijah was my 4x G-GF. I am trying to connect Thomas Gibson to the Thomas Gibson who came to Jamestown in 1608. Thomas was b. abt 1712-1718. I believe he may be the son of the Thomas who married Mary Francis Allen and died in 1734. Their daughter, Mary, married a Flournoy. The Worley’s also married into the Flournoys and are mentioned in documents I have found on the Worley family.
    I have many hits to Thomas and Mary Francis Allen Gibson and to the Flournoys in my DNA.
    I would love to prove the connection to the first Thomas in 1608. Is there anywhere else I can go to verify this?
    I love this site. It has been very helpful to me in tracing my family.
