     CONSTANCE LANGHORNE, b. in Sep. 1652 in Rowley,  Essex Co., MA., and d. in 1714 in Newbury, Essex Co., MA.. Constance married. Jonathan Mooers of Newbury on 10 May 1680 in Rowley.

   After the death of her father Constance, still a minor, along with her sisters Bethiah and Sarah, were assigned guardians by the court. From the Ipswich Quarterly Court Records, Vol; 5, p. 91 comes this entry - "Constance Longhorne made choice of Richard Thurlay (Thorley) as her Guardian, Mar. 30, 1669, who gave bond for the estate in his hands". Constance would have been sixteen years old at the time. It isn't known how long she resided with the Thorleys, but she didn't marry until she was 27 years old in 1680 and perhaps lived with them for all or most of that time. There would surely have been some contact between the two families even after her marriage since she resided in the neighboring town of Newbury, but after several generations that contact and even knowledge of the relationship between Constance Langhorne and the Thorley family was lost. For my direct family line however, there is at least one more interesting association and it occurred 274  years after Constance chose Richard Thorley as her guardian. In 1942, in  the town Gatineau, Province of Quebec, Canada, Constance Twitchell, a seven times great granddaughter of Constance Langhorne married Glen Lander, a nine times great grandson of Richard Thorley. They were my parents.
