  • Pg.353
  • MATTHEW HOWARD, SR. was probably b. at least by 1610, and since he was not listed among those person living in Va., at the time of the 'Muster" of 1624/25, he clearly was not b. in Va. He d. sometime bet. 1652 and 1659, in Va.; m. possibly C1635, Ann (___), whose transportation into Va., he claimed - probably having brought her here, himself. It isn't known when Ann died. Her last child was b. C1651.
  • As will be shown below, the earliest record in America which mentions the name of Matthew Howard, of which we have knowledge, was dated 1635, and the last was in Dec. 1652. His wife Ann, was first mentioned in Va. records on May 26, 1638, with no further known reference to her after July 6, 1640, although she undoubtedly lived a number of years after this.
  • It seems likely that Ann, the mother, had died only shortly before the children came to Maryland, in 1659.
