Thomas Langton

1836 - 1908

Thomas Langton was born in May 1836 at the village inn in Great Ouseburn, four miles from Boroughbridge. His family were Anglican but unconverted. When 12 years old he was apprenticed to a local tailor - a Congregationalist who loved a good sermon. Every Sunday Mr Anderson asked the young men at his dinner table for an outline of the sermon preached that day. Under this regime Thomas learned much.
