The Shepherds of Markland
by Scott Winston Teal

Published in 1991.
I have this book and have used it in my research.
It is not without errors on some of the family lines.
Even so, it is worthwhile to have it as a jumping off point
in your research. The author was young when he wrote it,
and it shows in some of the exclamation marks he uses to emphasize points.
Amazon doesn't always have it in stock.
The Shepherds of Markland Cover 
by Kate Johnson

Published August 20, 1951 by Mrs. K. Johnson, Nakusp, B.C.
For the 1892-1952 Nakusp Diamond Jubliee
Two Langilles are mentioned in this book.
A Joshua Langille who was a pioneer lumberman from Nova Scotia,
and a Tracey Langille who was "stable boss of tramway horses".
This book would long be out of print.
I borrowed a copy of it from the Prince George (BC) library.

The story of the three and four-masted cargo schooners of Atlantic Canada 1859-1929
by John P. Parker, M.B.E., Master Mariner
Published 1960, Second Printing 1961
Hazell, Watson & Viney Lts., Aylesbury and Slough (Great Britain)
There are 2 references to a Langille and a C.C. Langill in this book.

Under "Schooners launched from other Yards, 1880-90", there is this passage:
"In 1882 a small tern, the Leo of 123 tons net, was launched by Langille of Mahone Bay.
This vessel had many owners during her forty years' career and latterly was registered at Charlottetown, P.E.I."

Under "The 1903 Schooners"
J.W. Cochrane also built the Hartney W.
of 271 tons net for Captain W.E. Wasson.
This vessel had a long life and several owners, including C.C. Langill,
J.G. Cochrane and J.E. George.
For a period of time she appears to have had French owners
but retained her Canadian registry.
She was broken up on the beach at Parrsboro in 1903."

I suspect this book is out of print -
I borrowed it from the Prince George (BC) library.

I have this set of books - lovely hardcovers.
The information is very limited for each entry,
but does list the head of the household
and which ship they arrived on.
