LANGLEY-MARISH, a village and a parish in Eton district, Bucks. The village stands near the Great Western railway, 3½ miles NE by E of Windsor; and has a station on the railway and a post-office under Slough, both of the name of Langley. The parish contains also part of Colnbrook; and bears the alternative name of St. Mary. Acres, 3,895. Real property, £11,408. Pop., 1,874. Houses, 393. The property is subdivided. The manor, with Langley Park, belonged to the Crown; was given, by Charles I., to Sir John Kederminster; and belongs now to R. B. Harvey, Esq. The present mansion was built, in 1755, by the second Duke of Marlborough; is a spacious edifice, in a finely-wooded park of about 360 acres; and contains a rich collection of pictures. The Black Park, on rising ground in the N, comprises 530 acres, and is almost wholly covered with firs. The living is a p. curacy, under the vicarage of Wyrardisbury, in the diocese of Oxford. Value and patron, not reported. The church has a nave partly Norman, a chancel and an aisle early decorated English, with two good early English windows, and a tower built by the Kederminsters in 1649. A small theological library was founded by Sir John Kederminster; is placed over the S porch; and is free to the clergymen of the county. Kederminster’s alms-houses have £52 a-year from endowment; Seymour’s alms-houses, £59; and other charities £132. There are a national school and two infant schools.
