Langlands, John I, John II, Dorothy - for sixty years the Langlands family were the largest manufactureres of plate in Newcastle. After the death of Isaac Cookson in 1754, two of his former apprentices and journeymen John Langlands I and John Goodrick took over his business manufacturing a moderate range of silverware.
This partnership ended with the death of Goodrick in 1757; the business not only survived, but continued to thrive and in 1788 John Langlands I formed a partnership with John Robertson I.
This well respected and recognised partnership was dissolved in 1795, two years after Langland's death. Under the management of Langland's son, John Langlands II the business continued to produce a high level of silver plate, and even after his death in 1804, his widow Dorothy Langlands maintained a flourishing business until her retirement in 1814.
