Administrative history:
John Langham (d.1671) came from Guilsborough but made a fortune in London as a merchant. He was made a baronet in 1660 and had been a Lord Mayor and M.P. for London. Sir John built up an estate in Northamptonshire and had purchased Cottesbrooke in 1635. The 2nd baronet Sir James and the 3rd baronet Sir William were M.P.s for either Northampton or the county. The 4th baronet Sir John began Cottesbrooke Hall in 1702. Sir James, the 7th baronet (d.1795) was M.P. for the county 1784-1790. Sir James, the 11th baronet (d.1893) had mental problems and the estate was run by his brother and successor Sir Herbert. The Hall was let to the Empress Elizabeth as a base for hunting the 1870s. Financial worries caused Sir Herbert to sell the estate in 1911. The Langhams moved to County Fremanagh. Cottesbrooke is now the home of the MacDonald Buchanans.

James Langham
(Rev. J. Whalley)
Mrs. Langham received a letter from Bath wherein a conversation was mentioned in which said that J.L. should change his name in accordance with the Will of J.L's gt. uncle Thos. Fredk. Musgrave uncle to first wife.
As J.L. wishes Charles Davie to understand the situation he would appreciate informing him at a suitable opportunity.
Property bequeathed by T.F. Musgrave, consisted of 46 acres at N. Petherton held on lives & detached farms let by Mr. Clarke before his death, some subject to mortgage & exhibition to Balliol.
Profits from estates small.
Joined with Lady L in suffering a recovery in 1798 to destroy the remainder & attached conditions.
Property settled on J.L. to increase his income on his marriage in 1800.
Some of the property sold & money vested in the funds.
No objections to title made by purchasers.
Would not hesitate to change his name to avoid forfeiture, but
Had rather retain his own name as the property is so small.
The late Lady Langham's paternal estates in Somerset have been sold and transferred into Northamptonshire & which his brother comes into possession of.
The exception to this was a farm at Milverton which was settled on J.L. in 1800.
Due to the size of his family the chances of Mr. Charles Davies succeeding would have been remote so that the extinction of the Remainder by the 1798 Recovery is of little importance.
