Scope and content

A miscellaneous collection of pedigrees made by Thomas Langford between 1611 and 1625, partly out of the collections of other Welsh genealogists. There are several tables of the Langford family, with the remainder of the volume containing pedigrees from all parts of Wales and from border counties, particularly Cheshire and Shropshire.
There are also some copies of documents mainly relating to Montgomeryshire, including a list of sheriffs, a rental of the manor of Llanerchydol, 1559 (f. 168), etc. In addition to pedigrees, there are some notes of the arms of English families (ff. 156-162), and of the creations of noblemen from Edward the Confessor to Elizabeth (ff. 144 verso-155 verso). The Hokleton pedigree (ff. 45 verso-46), was written by Richard Broughton of Oulbry.
