Name variations

Langridge has been spelled many different ways, before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Many variations of the name Langridge have been found, including Longridge, Longbridge, Langrich, Langriche, Langrick, Langrige, Langredge, Langrish, Langrith. The main variation found in my Janet (Langridge) Wild branch of the tree is Langrish :Believed the name is derived from the norman version of Langrish

The village of Langridge

The village ofLangridge is reached down a small country Lane - Langridge Lane there in the beautiful Swainswick and Woolley valley which lies below the A46 and Lansdown, less than 3 miles north of Bath, is the little church of St Mary Magdalene at Langridge. Although the church was built long ago by the Normans, not many people know it is there nestling peacefully in isolation on the hillside with just a farm and its buildings for company. The Saxons and Romans had been here before and over the centuries the church has witnessed historic events. The battle of Lansdown was fiercely fought on the neighboring hills in the Civil War. The parish's earliest mention is in the Domesday Book (1086).[1] Next to the Church is Langridge House and Studio. The view from the church and the house across the valley is stunning.
