    i. Accumulation The origin of the Langleys is difficult to penetrate. Their pedigree is headed by a Walter de Langley. Though accredited with knighthood, Waiter is a rather shadowy figure. He held property, perhaps a manor, at Pinley near Coventry and an estate at Siddington near Cirencester. The latter he seems to have owed to his wife, Emma de Lacy. Between 1189 and 1213 he gave a church and 3 virgates of land at Siddington to the knights of St. John of Jerusalem.

    The real founder of the Langley fortunes was Walter\'s son Geoffrey. His early years were, however, inauspicious. Though he had succeeded at Pinley by 1222, his land at Siddington was retained by members of related families. He sued first Isabel de Cardonville and after her death Hasculf de Harborough.
