Hmmm i'm not sure............perhaps if you Google Mundia and try doing it that way.

I don't know if it will make any difference but worth a try.

Thanks PricklyHolly

I have given it a go and it says my email address already exists so I have to try another one. I have never joined this site before so I do not know what is going on. I even tried asking for a password reminder and it said the account doesnt exst. I'm not sure what to do now?

Thanks

thanks PricklyHolly you have been a great help. Could I possibly ask you to take a look at the 1861 census. Again I can see him there but not who he is living with. He was aged 4 living in Chard. Thank you, you are being a really big help.

all the best Jane

Yes that looks like him. Thats a shame. I was hoping he was married and that the lady on the photo next to him (Not the same Photo) was his wife.

All I have is Frederic E W Langdon Xmas 1887 on the back of one of the photos. He was a vicar. The photo was taken in Exeter.
I have found this which could be him on family search but I cant see the rest of the family and details. Perhaps someone could fill in the blanks for me please.

Frederick E W Langdon

Census 1901
Event Date: 31 Mar 1901
Age: 44

Head

Birthplace: Chard, Somersetshire

Registration District: Axminster

Sub-District: Chardstock
Ecclesiastical Parish: Axminster St Mary The Virgin With Kilmington St Giles Membury St John The Baptist

The family appears to have links with Exeter, Bridgewater, Somerset, Hull, Plymouth and Launcester??

This is a long shot I am just trying to put names to faces on these photos, They were in a family album we found.

thanks
