William Langridge may have been born about 1539, possibly in East Grinstead.  He was probably the son of Edward Langridge (c1499-1558) and Sybell.  William was buried on 3 September 1597 in East Grinstead and it was noted in the burial register that he was Will Langrige, senior.  He left a will dated 26 August 1597 and proved at Lewes on 8 November 1597.  He was then described as a yeoman of East Grinstead.

A Joane Langridge, widow buried on 28 June 1613 in East Grinstead.
