About Langhelt Genealogy
Please sign in to see more.
The name LANGHELT seems little researched, in the UK at least, and as my main family tree has a connection to this name, I thought I would start a website dedicated to the name. As far as I can tell, all the LANGHELTS in the UK are descended from Gottfrey LANGHELT, born circa 1720. Early research suggests that perhaps the family originally came from Markershausen in Germany, but this is to be explored further.  I invite anyone with any details, corrections, updates or any citations to add to the site,  to please contact me and let me know about them so that I may enhance this site for the benefit of all who may have an interest.

I have registered the name as a research project with the Guild of One Name Studies.

There are probably derivations of the name i.e. LANGHELL, LANGHETT and LANGHILT or even contractions such as LANG or LAING - as there are in my own tree. A recent contact suggest that the name was originally LANGHELD and the spelling changed through phonetic pronunciation throughout the ages.

I aim to follow the UK based lineage, but will be happy to expand this where evidence is presented and cited. 
PLEASE NOTE - The site will only record one generation of descendants of female LANGHELT's that marry, or else the site may become too large for its purpose.

I have entered a few 'orphaned' names, where I have just details of births and deaths but no links to any families. There are a few referenced marriages but as yet I cannot connect them to the correct lineage. I hope that I will be able to allocate them to their correct families over time. There are a few 'UNKNOWNS' as well, especially where marriages have been referenced but the spouse's name is not known for definite. Any assistance here would be appreciated. I have accessed the 1911 census in some instances, and hopefully will get a few more families 'placed'.

I welcome all criticisms, comments or corrections where I have not provided any documented citations. This is a 'living' site dedicated to our ancestors, so I want it to be right.
