History of the Spelling[edit]

What we now agree is called Crantock appears to have had several spellings over the years, some could be errors, but I'm certainly not qualified or otherwise experienced to assert either way. In any case, it seems that these spellings have been used in various places, a Google search on each will bring relevant results...

  • Crantoc is the original spelling of the Saint, but that is relatively modern when considering the ancient place that once stood, at least that's what I'm interested in...
  • Langarrow
  • Langoroch
  • Langorroc
  • Langurroc
  • Langurrow
  • Langona
  • Languna

Some variations I saw had two letter Ns or Gs, again these may be errors. So the question is...what is the correct spelling for this ancient city?
