My name is Linda Longley and I have researched the Langley-Longley family for over 34 years.
I have written a 467 page book called the Langley & Longley Family Biographical Directory the goal of which is to identify all known descendants of James Langley of Oyster River, Dover, New Hampshire, (1680-1730/1), up to about 1900, although many descendants are born in the 20th century.
If you feel that you have family history information that would add to the richness of this book, please contact me. I'll work with you to carefully tell your family story, supported by primary and secondary research, much of which I have gathered. I will add your information to the 2nd edition of the book.
In the History of the Town of Durham NH by Everett S. Stackpole and Winthrop S. Meserve, Volume 2, page 246, the early Langley family has a published family profile.
This new Family History will be based on information found in the many probate and land records, family histories, town and vital records, court records, and other records now available, but not readily available to Stackpole and Meserve in 1913.
