First Generations:

What do we know about James Langworthy (1680) and his family?

Revised March 2014

James Langworthy and his family:
  • In a deposition of about 1698, Rachel Langworthy, age about 56, and James Langworthy, age about 18, swore they saw an individual at Kingston, RI. Rachel's age agrees with the age of Rachel (Hubbard) Langworthy (1698 - 1642 = 56) so, given the unusual name and the agreement in age, this is probably Andrew's wife. Assuming that James was her son implies he was born about 1680.
  • James married Mary Remington in Jamestown, RI around 1706 (Arnold's Vital Records of Rhode Island, V4, Jamestown, p.11)
  • His family Bible is at the Newport Historical Society, and it lists his children:
    • Abigail, born 1707, married John Whitehouse
    • Mary, born 1709/10, married Daniel Pierce
    • James, born 1711, married Sarah Smith
    • Andrew, born 1713, married Elizabeth Heal. No known children.
    • Stephen, born1715. Nothing more is known about him.
    • Jonathan, born 1717, died in 1800 apparently unmarried.
    • Benjamin, born 1720. Nothing more is known about him
    • .
  • Of these children, only James (1711) is known to have had descendants named Langworthy.
  • James Langworthy died before Nov 30, 1720, when an inventory was taken of his estate.
