It is also not clear as to whether Henry and Mary married in England or America.

"Henry Howland of Duxbury, Massachusetts"
Robert S. Wakefield, Robert M. Sherman
NGSQ, v75, pp105-116 (Jun 1987)
"On 16 6m [August] 1674, there died in Duxbury "Mary Howland who had bin the wife of Hennery."
Although this wife is called Mary Newland by several writers, no evidence for her surname has been
located in a contemporary record."

"Certain Comeoverers"
Crapo, Henry Howland
New Bedford, Mass.: E. Anthony & Sons, 1912; p146
"Henry Howland married Mary Newland, a sister of William Newland who came
from Lynn in 1637 and settled in Sandwich. She and her brother became Quakers, and
she suffered with her family the persecution of the Court. I have noticed in my investigations
that it is the woman of a household who controls the religious attitude of her family. Her
husband in most cases simply follows suit. Henry Howland died in Dux-bury, January 17,
1671, and his widow died also in Duxbury, June 17, 1674."
