Marmaduke Langdale

Marmeduke Langdale (1598 - 1661) was married to Ann Howard, a granddaughter of Sir Thomas Howard, the 4th Duke of Norfolk. He was a Roman Catholic and was knighted by Charles I in 1628. He was one of those who had refused to pay ship money to the crown, but joined the royalist cause at the outbreak of the English Civil War.

He commanded a troop of horse during the first civil war, but fled to France via the Isle of Man after the defeat of the royalists, spending time with Charles II, by whom he was ennobled in 1658.

He returned at the Restoration and remained a cavalry commander.
