About Samuel House (Howse), Sr.

Samuel Howse, or House, brother of Hannah, was baptized 10 June 1610, and came to New England in 1634, probably with his brother-in-law, Rev. John Lothrop.

He settled at Scituate, where he married late in 1635 Elizabeth Hammond, who was born in England about 1619, daughter of William and Elizabeth (Paine) Hammond of Watertown, Mass. Their eldest child, Elizabeth House, was baptized at Scituate 23 Oct. 1636. In Lothrop's Scituate Church Records appears this entry: " Elizabeth Hammon my Sister having a dismission from the church at Watertowne was joyned April 14, 1636." Although here mentioned by her maiden name, this Elizabeth Hammond had certainly been married before this date to Samuel House, and she was called " my sister " by Lothrop clearly because she was the wife of Samuel House, whose sister, Hannah House, had been Lothrop's first wife.

In his will of 18 October 1643, "Thomas Howse of the parish of St Stephen in Coleman Street, London, a citizen and brownbaker," included bequests to "my brother Samuell Howse" and "my sister Pininna Lynnell." On 18 November 1645, "Samuel Howse of Barnstable" made a letter of attorney to "Hezekiah Usher of Boston to receive twenty pounds of the executor of Thomas [blank] given him by the last will of the said Thomas [blank]." On 20 July 1649, "Samuel Howse of Scituat shipwright" made a letter of attorney to "Tho[mas] Tarte of the same merchant ... to ask &c. of the executor &c. of the last will & testament of Thomas House late of Lond[on] watchmaker, all such legacies as due unto the children of the said appearer by virtue of the said last will."
