Searching for: Ancestors of Edward Howard, b c.1628, son of Sir Francis Howard (Baron of Effingham)

Looking for Howards who might be descendants of Edward Howard, b c.1628, son of Sir Francis Howard (Baron of Effingham) b. c. 1584 d. 1651, and Jane Monson, b. c. 1590.  They lived in the area of Lingham and Great Bookham[?Kent or E. Sussex?]  Edward left England about 1641, possibly under an assumed name, as I can find no marriage or death records for him in England, and he sort of pops up practicing law in Boston in 1642 with no birth records in the colonies.  I have solid data from his marriage to Hannah Hawkins in Boston in 1661. The family stayed in Boston, then Little Compton R.I., then Matthew Howard was born in Bristol, Mass, in 1740 and moved to upper New York state around Albany. During the revolution he fought under Gen Burgoyne and was captured at the battle of Bennington VT.  He and his three oldest sons make up four of the seven Howard UEL in Ontario.  I would be interested in corresponding with anyone related to the line of Sir Francis Howard. His oldest son was Sir Charles Howard, b. 1615 d. 1672, m. Frances Courthope, b. 1614 d. 1681.  Their oldest son, Francis Howard, Lord Effingham,  was commissioned Lieutenant and Governor-General of Virginia on Sept 28, 1683.  I have a tree back to Robert Howard b.1388 and would hope to hear from anyone tied into this line.

Happy hunting to you all

Searching for: Family of John HOWARD born, New York, 1810

Boy are my Howard's lost! Henry Clay Howard b. abt 1847 ILL parents from KY. I found Henry as an adult in the 1880 Barry Co, MO census. He left MO with his wife and children and went to I believe Harrison Co, AR. Then shortly before1900 he settled in Cherokee Co, OK. May have a sister named Elizabeth (Betty) that married a Stanton and resided in MO also mention of a brother named George? Not able to track the parents in ILL or anywhere else. I know they originated from England. I feel the name Henry Clay must be a clue. Any help appreciated. It has been a 25 yr. search.
