Dorothy Langlands was the wife of John Langlands II and she took over her husbandís business in 1804 when he died. She retired in 1814 and died in 1845. Dorothy Langlands is one of the most well known of all of the Newcastle silversmiths, not least because she was a woman. It is interesting that given that she is so famous, her engraving tends to be rather crude. It is very definitely of a much poorer quality than most other sugar tong manufacturers.
