Searching for:
Ancestors/Decendants of John James Howard possibly from Croydon, Surrey, emigrated to Canada early 1880's

I am looking for connection to my grandfather's family whose location is not definitely known, but might have been the Croyden locale. My grandfather, John James was born Feb 28, 1863 in England, parents were Thomas and Elizabeth Howard. He had at least one sibling, brother Thomas who was killed in the Boer War. Also, he may have had two sisters though he told almost nothing of his early origins to any of his four children. He came to Canada in the early 1880's, settled in Montreal where he married Alice Margaret Hankins in 1890 in Montreal where they settled. He established a successful stevedoring business on the Montreal docks and raised 5 children. One son, Edward Horn Percy was killed, October 1916 at the Somme. He was predeceased by his wife in March 1913 and died himself in Montreal in August 1941. His only references to his birthplace were that he knew the sounds of the Bow Bells and a suggestion that the family may have been involved in the lumber trade  in Croydon. I am anxious to trace the family back from his parents. We know that the Hankins family lived in the Oxford area back as far as the early 1700's. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks

Searching for: Information on Dorothy Evelyn Hockett Howard married Neil Howard c. 1925

Hello my name is Beverly Howard Coatney. I am doing a geneology for my children. I am looking for any information on the Howard side of my family. I have some information from a book that was sent to me by my brother called "The Heritage and Legacy of Francis Frazier II--A Blacksmith." My grandmother was Dorothy Evelyn Hockett Howard who was married to my grandfather Neil Howard and was married in 1925 and divorced in 1931. My father's name was Clare Allen Howard of Ohio. After reading the book it seems that this part of the family were Quakers. I married a Coatney and his genealogy shows a lot of Howards that married Coatneys from Kentucky. I am so confused. Could you give me an idea of where and how to start? Thank You from the bottom of my heart...Bev

Searching for: Howard Family Information - General Enquiry

 There is a link between the Howard family and the Uvedale families. Elizabeth Uvedale, daughter of Sir William Uvedale and Lady Victoria, married Edward Lord Howard, Viscount Morbeth and Count of Carlisle, before 1668. This is recorded, amongst other places, in a book on the Uvedale family written in 1865 by Granville Levison Gower, MP. Could you advise me of the best genealogy/family history contact, insofar as the Howard family is concerned?

Searching for: Information on Arthur Howard were born 19 Feb 1889 in Johnson Co., TX, USA

 I discovered your web site thru a friend who suggested I try familysearch.  I am trying to find my grandfather's twin brother. Here's what I know :

Oscar Newton Howard and Arthur Howard were born 19 Feb 1889 in Johnson Co., TX, USA to Joseph Ab Howard and Emily Rebecca Jones.

Arthur married Rose (?), date unknown, probably in TX.  Supposedly had a female child, details unknown; and a son, possibly Harlan Howard.  The family may have moved to California, details unknown.

Any ideas, info or suggestions would be most appreciated.  I think your web site is outstanding. An aside:  My dad (who was given to making up very fanciful stories) used to tell me that our name meant "Royal Hog Caller".  I thought he was full of baloney, but guess not.

Searching for: Information on Howard's in Essex and Sussex

My name is Jenny Hudson, my great grandfather was Harry Howard, born 1862 in Romford to George Howard and Mary Ann Shillings (his second marriage).  I know this second marriage took place in St George's, Hannover Square, London in 1862, and that both George and Mary Ann Shillings were resident in Mount Street in 1862.  The census for 1861 Mount Street is largely destroyed.  I know George was born in 1826 or 1827 but do not know where, or who or when he married for the first time.  I have therefore been unable to make much more progess that this.  George Howard died in 1865 in Noak Hill, Essex ( he was a licensed victueller), leaving a son, Harry and a baby George who died shortly after him.  Harry (my great grandfather) was then a lodger at the local school before marrying Sarah Walton in 1886 in Polesworth.  They had three children, George, Reginald and Mary.   I found your website via the family search pages (I can't say I have found them very useful, they do not have any traces that would help me.   Hoping that something in the above may fit in with your already extensive research.  Looking forward to hearing from you, Regards, Jenny
