Geoffrey brother of Walter had a son Edmund who married Joan and had issue Geoffrey and Joan. Joan died and Edmund married Elizabeth daughter of Justice William de Bereford and had a son John, father of the present John Langley.

After the death of Joan daughter of Geoffrey this John entered the manor, but for fear of death did not dare continue the estate which he claimed.
