Married Louisa WALTER


  • From Angela Turner in Australia:

    Henry was the son of Thomas Langlois and Sarah Robins, his wife was Louisa Walter. Thomas was the brother of Peter Daniel Langlois who was my G3 grandfather. Daniel Justin Langlois, my G2 granfather is on the census as a harp maker/music smith. He made harps for Errard. The patriarch of this family was Pierre Langlois who was a famous ebeniste - some of his commodes are in the Queen's collection, the V & A and Woburn Abbey amongst others.

    It seems that the silver chasing may have started with Pierre's son Peter who was apprenticed to his brother in law Peter Dominique Jean who was an ormolu craftsman - not that ormolu is silver but it is vaguely similar and I can see how they could have moved out of ormolu which was losing its appeal by the turn of the 1800s and into silver.

    It seems as if this family was in London by the beginning of the 1700s even though Pierre was still writing his business card in French 50 years later.
