Langley, Henry (1611 -1679)

The arms correspond to those of Langley, of Langley in County Durham, and of Sheriff Hutton in Yorkshire. The stamp might be that of William Langley, of Stanton in Yorkshire, and Higham Gobiam in Bedfordshire, who was created a baronet 27 April 1641, and was descended from Langley, of Langley. The sixth baronet, Sir Henry Langley, died without issue (before 1724). Duff says that the stamp is that of Henry Langley (1611-1679, a Puritan divine, and son of Thomas Langley, a shoemaker of Abingdon in Berkshire. It is unlikely that he was armigerous. The library of The Reverend Thomas Langley M.A. was sold by Leigh, Sotheby & Son 20 May 1802.
