3762. John HOWLAND was born 1592 in Fen-Stanton, Huntingdonshire, England. He died 1672 in Swansea, Bristol Co., Massachusetts. John married Elizabeth TILLY on 14 Aug 1623 in Plymouth, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts. [Parents]

PIONEERS OF MASSACHUSETTS
    says came on the Mayflower in 1620 as servant of Gov. John Carver. Signed the Mayflower Compact. Took an active part in early explorations. Settled at Plymouth. Town officer; a partner in the Trading Company of the Colony; Asst. or deputy almost continually; prominent in the church. He died "a profitable instrument of good; the last man that was left of those that came over in the ship called the May Flower that arrived in Plymouth." [Plymouth Colony Record, VII, 34.] Grown aged, he bequeathed to wife Elizabeth his house
in Rocky Nook in the town of Plymouth and made her residuary legatee. Daughter Desire Howland Gorham among children in the will.

SAINTS AND STRANGERS
    iis source for birth date. Says died in 1672. "A plaine-hearted Christian." Evidently inherited Carver's estate and immediately bought his freedom. Purchaser, 1626. Undertaker, 1627-41. Assistant governor, 1633-35 and probably 1629-32. In charge of Kennebec trading post at time of Hocking murder, 1634, and apparently held somewhat to blame, for never again entrusted with public office (p. 320). En route to America on the Mayflower he was swept overboard by heavy seas but caught a trailing halyard, hanging on "though he was sundrie fadomes under water," until he was pulled in with a boat hook. Was on the "Third Discovery" that finally determined where the Pilgrims would live. John's brother Arthur also was in the Plymouth Colony, but book doesn't say how he got there. Arthur did woo, and finally win, Gov. Prence's daughter. "Undertaker" means he was among prominent men who undertook to pay debts owed by the Pilgrims to the group that financed their move to America and provided food and materiel.

GENEALOGIES OF MAYFLOWER FAMILIES, Vol. II,
     Arthur Howland Sr., John's brother, was an early immigrant to Plymouth Colony and later resided in Marshfield, Mass. He probably came to America on the same ship as another brother, Henry Jr. Three other brothers remained in England. "Furthermore, he is remarkable for being one of the ancestors of Mr. Winston Churchhill." Notes for the article say brother John was an ancestor of Franklin D. Roosevelt. So the brothers' father, Henry Howland Sr., should rate a plaque at site of his grave.

SIGNERS OF THE MAYFLOWER COMPACT
    Lists other descendants of John: Nathaniel Gorham, member of the convention that framed the Constitution and chaired that body several times at the request of George Washington; Revolutionary War General Nathaniel Greene, and Gen. A.W. Greely, an Arctic explorer.
   The foregoing source quotes Gov. Bradford about John's mishap at sea:
  "In a mighty storm John Howland, a Passenger (!) a stout young man, by a keel of ye ship was thrown into ye sea. But it pleased God, He caught hold of ye Topsail Halliards we hung overboard, and run out ye length, yet He kept his hold the several Fathoms under water, till He was drawn up by ye Rope to ye surface and by a Boat Hook and other means got into ye ship: and tho' somew't ill upon it, liv'd many years, and became a useful member both in church and Commonwealth."
  Howland family tradition has long held that John's wife Elizabeth was the daughter of John Carver, but others say Carver died childless--or at least had no living children when he died. The author of Signers of the Mayflower Compact, however, speculates she may have been Carver's granddaughter. She also hints that John Howland was much more than just an indentured servant. And he did inherit Carver's estate.
  The author says many Howland descendants became Quakers. One of them, Robert Howland Sr., kept his sense of humor. She reports:
  "Upon the election of one of his neighbors to the office of 'field driver,' sometimes called 'hog constable,' he gave the following impromptu:
     "'It seemeth strange to our weak brains,
       The town should think it best,
     To pass a vote to choose one Shoat
       To govern all the rest.'"
  Several Howlands also became Baptists and moved to Dartmouth, close to Rhode Island Baptists.

EPITAPHS TO REMEMBER says gravestone in Plymouth, Mass., read:
     Here ended ye Pilgrimage of
     John Howland who died Feby 23rd 1672-3
     Aged above 80 yeares. He married
     Eliabeth daur of John Tilley who
     came with him in ye shipp Mayflower
     Decr. 1620. From them are
     descended numerous posterity.
  [This epitaph reads like it was written and gravestone erected years after the death of John Howland].

NATIONAL SOCIET Y OF DARTERS OF AMERICAN COLONIEST, Vol. 11,
    John Howland died in 1673.

COLONIAL FAMILIES OF THE USA
     John Howland was born in 1592; died Feb. 22, 1672, and came from Essex, England. "Queen Elizabeth granted the Howlands their Coat Armor in 1584, the family beginning with Bishop Howland, who performed the obsequies for Mary Queen of Scots."

THE ENGLISH ANCESTRY AND HOMES OF THE PILGRIM FATHERS
    John was born about 1594. Since there is no record of his living in Leyden he is credited to London because John Carver was in England for a considerable time before the Mayflower sailed. He "undoubtedly obtained the services of Howland in that city prior to the departure from England."
  "The Howland ancestry is probably of Essex origin...There was a John Howland taxed at Canfield Parva, Essex, 1623, and the name also occurs earlier at Newport Pagnall in the same county. In London a John Howland was living in the parish of St. Mary, Whitechapel, in 1596, and in 1600 another John belonged to the parish of St. Botolph, Billingsgate. Jeffrey Howland was taxed in 1625 in the parish of St. Botolph, Aldgate. These parishes are all close to or part of the Pilgrim quarter of London."

He emigrated to this country with his brother Thomas, in 1535, resided a short time at Lynn thence removed to Sandwich MA on the Cape, where April 16th 1640, a lot of one and a half acres of land was granted him; but he does not appear to have continued long in the Plymouth Colony, for he was in Newport, in 1649. In 1650 he was appointed, with others, to mend and make all the arms in Newport. Gov. Arnold mentions him as one of whom he had bought land, and as one of the original purchases of the island of Quononicut. In 1655-6 he appears on the Colonial Records as a freemen; and he bought land in Newport as late as March 22d, 1660. On that date articles of agreement were made whereby Sosoa, an Indian captain of Narragansett, deeded (June 29, 1660) a large tract of land called Misquamicutt (was the Indian name of salmon.) to seventy-six of the colonists, George Bliss being one of the number (In 1669 the territory of Misquamicutt was incorporated under the name of Westerly.

3968. Robert TAYLOR was born about 1620 in Kent, England. He died 13 Jan 1688 in Newport, Newport Co., Rhode Island. Robert married Mary HODGES on Nov 1646 in Scituate, Essex Co., Massachusetts.

LITTLE COMPTON FAMILIES, page 658.
    Residence in Scituate and Newport. He was a rope maker and also was appointed by the General Assembly 29 Oct 1673 to be prison keeper in Newport RI.
    As most of the people of Scituate came from Kent County England. it is likely that he came from there also. He owned a farm in Sachuest Meadows. There is a point of land once called Taylor's point, now called Ochre Point, between Shepard Avenue and Ruggles Avenue, and the Taylor farm was located there from the time of the setting of the Island according to Peterson's History of Rhode Island, page 59. This place was owned by William B. Lawrence after 1850, and was later named the Breakers.
    Another first settler by the name of William Taylor (of Barnstable, Devonshire, England) settled in Portsmouth RI and married Ann Goodfellow 4 Oct 1722. He was probably not related to the above Robert Taylor.
    A record of the marriage of Robert Taylor and Mary Hodges is found in the Friends Society records of Newport. From Arnold: "Died at Newport, Robert Taylor of Scituate, MA, 13 Jan 1688." On 5 Nov. 1658 Robert Taylor of Newport conveyed to Edward Smith of Newport his share of Quinanquit and Dutch Islands.

3988. John LEWIS Sr. was born in England. He died before 1690 in Westerly, Kings Co., Rhode Island. John married Ruth before 1658 in Westerly, Kings Co., Rhode Island.

REP. MEN of OLD RI FAMILIES, Vol. 4, page 2189.
    John Lewis is credited with having come from England in company with his four brothers in the early settlement of this country, locating in what is now Westerly RI; his brothers are said to have located near Boston. John is of record in Westerly in 1661, and was made a freeman of the town in 1668. He died in 1690 in Pawcatuck, and was buried just below the village of Westerly near the road leading to Watch Hill. His children were: Jonathan, John, Daniel, James, David, Isreal, Samuel and Dorcas, several of whom remained with their father.

RANDALL LEWIS, of Hopkinton RI, page 20 thru 27.
    The visionary traditional "three emigrant borther" fallacy seems to be attached to John who is said to have come from Wales to America, landing in Plymouth MA and locating in Newport, RI where he is supposed to have resided for a few years until his fiancee arrived from over seas to wed and become the head of a prolific branch of Lewis race in little Rhody.

BABCOCK & ALLIED FAMILIES, pp. 62, 63.
    John Lewis is first mentioned in the Rhode Island records as signing the articles of argreement about the settlement of Westerly on March 22, 1661. He was one of the founders of the town, and is supposed to have been at Newport, RI previous to this date, but the records of Newport were damaged during the Revolution, and this supposition therefore cannot be verified. On October 28, 1668, he was freeman at Westerly, and on May 18, 1669, his name appears on a list of the inhabitants of the town. He took the oath of allegiance on May 16, 1671, in response to a warrant issued to the inhabitants of Westerly to appear "tomorrow at Tobias Saunders home to see how they stand as to their fidelity to His Majesty and his colony." Before 1690 he died, and was buried just below the village of Westerly. Nothing is known of his wife.

PIONEER LEWIS FAMILIES, by Michael L. Cook, C. G. Vol. 1, Cook Publications, 1978, page 35.
    John Lewis was in Westerly in 1661 as he signed articles of agrement March 22ne of that year. John Lewis died before 1690 and was buried just below the village of Westerly, near the road leading to Watch Hill, on the east side of the highway. The place where he was buried is a large, unfenced spot, in the southeast corner of a field in front of the house owned at one time by Thomas E. Saunders. The land once belonged to the Lewis family, and afterwards to Arnold Kenyon. It is said that seven generations of Lewises are buried here, but there is no lettering on the stones. There is another Lewis burying ground in Westerly situated on the crest of a gravel hill, south of the house once owned by Pardon Lewis.

FROM: eperry@prodigy.net
    I was saddened to see you have the undocumented stuff there about a Sir John Crandall marrying an Elizabeth Drake
    That has been shown to be spurious, and we at the Crandall Family Associeation have been doing our darndest to fight this particular lineage.
    Recent research in England has been done and Elder John has been found, we believe, christened in Westerleigh, Gloucestershire, England, in 1817.
    Our web site has several pages that deal with this, and I hope you will go and visit and then think about deleting all the material you have on Elder John's ancestry.

His mother is supposed to have been a Scotch lady. He came to Boston within a very few years after the landing of the Pilgrims, in 1634.
    The first valid doc. account of John in New England shows him to have been activiely identified with the Baptish Church in Newport, July 21, 1651. His name next is found, with that of Matthew West in a Freeman's list of Newport, 1655. John Crandall was the first Baptist Elder in Westerly.
