Venue History: Shrouded in the mists of time and the romantic veil of history, Langdon Manor is revealed in the Doomsday Book as being held by the Norman Baron Godhel and tenanted to his squire Knight Walden.
Through the Age of Chivalry, Langdon passed from Walden to the Pipard family and on to the Great Courteneys of Devon, who, due to their treason forfeited the estate to Bluff King Hal', Henry VIII, and from the great King to his widow Catherine Parr.
That flowering of the English Renaissance, The Age of Gloriana was eventful for Langdon, in that Queen Elizabeth I granted Langdon to one Vincent Calmady for services to the Navy, thereby commencing a long period of ownership by that family from 1564 1876. The Calmady and Courteney families were connected by marriage and the family rose to a strong and wealthy position in Devon. This was a period of great activity in re-building and landscaping to produce the beautiful setting we can still admire today.
In 1876 Richard Cory, merchant, purchased Langdon Court and thereby started a new Langdon Legend, for during Richard's tenure Langdon played host to the Prince of Wales (later to become Edward VII) and his friend, the society beauty and actress Lily Langtry. Photographs of the couple can be seen around the house.
On the death of Richard Cory, the estate was sold and during the Second World War was requisitioned by the army. Following a succession of caretaker and private owners Langdon was purchased by Geoffrey and Emma Ede in July 2007 who are the current owners.
