pp1-7: "Two of John's brothers followed John to Plymouth. Henry Howland, the youngest brother,
was apprenticed to this brother, Humphrey Howland, in London and his name is found on the Roll
of Drapers Company, 1 October 1623. But less than ten years later, Henry arrived in Plymouth
where he was taxed 25 March 1633. John's oldest brother, Arthur Howland, soon followed his younger
brothers to New England and was listed by Thomas Lechford, 28 August 1640, as 'of Duxbury in New
England, Planter'".

"Henry Howland of Duxbury, Massachusetts"

NGSQ, v75, pp105-116 (Jun 1987)
"Henry Howland, son of Henry, was born before 1613 - probably at Fenstanton, county
Huntingdon, England - and died at Duxbury, Massachusetts, on 1 "leventh month" [January]
1670/71. He was apprenticed on 1 October 1623 to his brother, Humphrey Howland, in London
but appears not to have completed his apprenticeship. Henry married, probably in England,
to Mary [-----]. 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 Duxbury, January 17,
1671, and his widow died also in Duxbury, June 17, 1674."
