Here is a brief history of Langtons Registry Office. Langtons House itself was built on the foundations of an older house in the early 18th century, standing in a picturesque landscaped garden with a lake, Orangery bath house and  a gazebo all dating from the end of the 18th century. Hornchurch was then part of Essex now a suburb of London since 1965 was much less populated. The house was purchased in 1797 by John Massu, whose family, originally Huguenot refugees, had become wealthy silk merchants in the City of London.

Massu set about modernising Langtons, to which he added the two-storey wings that project on the south front and landscaping the grounds according to plans of Humphrey Repton. He created the serpentine pond with the bathhouse and gazebo and planted horse chestnuts to mask or frame the mid-18th century stables, to which he added an octagonal cupola. A  shrubbery walk with serpentining paths was planted east of the house and a balancing shrubbery belt to the west are probably part of Repton’s plan; the Ceder of Lebanon was planted as a central feature of the lawn and is said to be the most photographed tree in England.

Langtons House Registry Office was given to Hornchurch Council by Varco Williams and his daughter in 1929, under the condition that the building must be kept unchanged and used for council purposes and that the six acres of grounds remain open to the public.
Fielders Sports Ground, north of the site, was once also part of the gardens and it has been restored to it’s former glory. There is no public parking at Langtons (wedding cars and a disabled car allowed). There is paid car parking across the road in Billet Lane and at the Queens Theatre and Sainsbury’s supermarket.
