Landon Family HistoryThis English medieval surname, recorded in the spellings of Langdon, Landon, and Laundon, originates from the various places in England called Langdon. These include the Langdons in Devon, Dorset, Essex, Warwickshire, Kent, and other places. The placename derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "lang" meaning "long", and "dun", a hill. With the change from Olde English to Anglo-Saxon in the 10th century, some places were recorded in the "new" spelling. These include Longdon, a place name found in the counties of Shropshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire, the latter being recorded as Langadune in the year 1002, at the very begining of surviving records...
