John Langmore was born 9999 in England and died 1621 Onboard the Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor, Plymouth, Plymouth County, Massachusetts of unspecified causes.

Research Notes

Very little is known about this Mayflower passenger.

John Langmore came on the Mayflower as a servant to the family of Christopher Martin (c1582-1621). Since he was a manservant, he was almost certainly under the age of 25. And since he did not sign the Mayflower Compact he was quite probably under 18 or 21. The only other fact that is known about him, is that he died sometime the first winter at Plymouth, probably between January and March 1621.

Since he was associated with the Christopher Martin family, it seems probable that he may have come from the same vicinity (Great Burstead and Billericay, co. Essex, England.) There is a Langmore/Longmire family found in Alveley and Claverly, Shropshire, and Upper Arley, Worcestershire, that also could perhaps be his ancestral family.
