Mrs. Eliza Langdon

The Langdon Charity was a bequest of Mrs. Eliza Langdon, and a distribution is made annually at Christmas.

Mrs. Langdon was a daughter of Laurence Ashton of Cleverdon and she married John Langdon of the parish of St. Thomas, Exeter.

Their story is brief and sad. John died at the age of 28 and Eliza also lost by death her infant child. In 1848 Eliza herself died at the age of 39.

They were buried in a vault in the church. The distribution of the charity is made by the Vicar of the Parish and appointed members of the parish Council.
