Lineage. — The family of the Longs of Wiltshire was
settled at a very early date at South Wraxall. They have
represented the co. of Wilts in Parliament for some 500 years.
A branch of the name was anciently seated at Potterne and
Little Cheverell, in the same co. and vicinity; and the tradi-
tions, as handed down for several generations in this particular





branch, and recorded on tlieir monumental inscriptions,* as
veil as the mural mention made of persons of the same name
in wills,f and various documents at very remote periods by
different contemporary members of the family of Wraxall and
of that settled at Potterne, afford presumptive evidence that
the ancestor of this branch derived his descent from one of
the early sons of the house of Wraxall, about the time of
Henry VIII.
