This family is of Wiltshire origin, where various branches of that name have been to stablished for several centuries.* John LoNge, of Netheravon, in that county, d. in 1630, leaving by Catharine, his wife, besides an elder son John, a second Son, Timothy LoNge, born 1610, m. Jane, only daughter of the Rev. Oliver Brunsell, vicar of Wroughton,t in the county of Wilts, by Elizabeth, daughter of Henry Martyn, of Upham, in the parish of Albourne, in the same county, and of the Inner Temple, by Jane, daughter of Thomas Walrond, of Albourne, forester in fee of that chace. He died in 1691, and had issue, 1. Timothy Long, in holy orders, b. in 1636, rector of St. Alphage, London, d. unm. 14th September, 1665, during the great plague, as stated in Peck's Desiderata. II. SAMuel. SAMUEL Long, second son, b. at Wroughton in 1638, accompanied the expedition, under Penn and Venables, which conquered

* Camden derives the name of Long from the traditionary fact, that “a young gentleman of the House of Preux,” being a follower of the Lord Treasurer Hungerford, was “preferred by him to a good marriage,” and adopted it by reason of his stature. Leland designates him as “a stoute felaw set up by one of the old Lords Hungerford.” The principal family of the name was very early seated at South Wraxall, and afterwards at Draycot, by marriage in the time of HENRY WI. with the heiress of Cerne. These properties were dissevered in 1610, when the male line of Wraxall became extinct in 1715, and that of Draycot in 1805. There is now no known male issue existing of this family. Another extensive branch of the name was early settled at Semington, Trowbridge, Whaddon, Monkton, and Rowd Ashton, places in the vicinity of Wraxall, and at Beckington and Stratton in Somersetshire. There is at

resent no known male issue extant of this ranch. A third was early seated at Pottern and

Cheverell in the same vicinity, and became the male ancestry of R. G. Long, esq. of Rowd Ashton, and of Walter Long, esq. of Preshaw, in Hants. This branch acquired the possessions of Wraxall, Rowd Ashton, &c. by an intermarriage with the heir female of the Monkton line, in which they had centered in the person of the late Walter Long, esq. who d. in 1807.

The mutual mention made of one another in wills and various documents at early periods, by different members of these four families, may be received as presumptive evidence in favour of a common ancestry.
