About Lieut. John Howland, Jr.

Descendant of Mayflower passengers John Howland and Elizabeth (Tilley) Howland


John lived for a time in Marshfield, appearing there as early as 1653, where he took the "oath of fidelity" in 1657. The Marshfield records speak of a daughter (Elizabeth) born to John Howland, 17,5,1655, and reference is also made in them to "John Jr. formerly of this town." We find him subsequently an inhabitant of Barnstable, as early as 1657. His father owned land in Marshfield, which he afterwards exchanged for atract in Barnstable. John Jr. may have occupied these lands, which would explain his moving to Barnstable. He possessed a great deal of energy, was a systematic business man, and was highly respected in the colony. He was connected with the circumstance of an arrest of his uncle Arthur 1 Howland, when he gave information to "Arthur and the Quaker" that the constables were on the way to arrest them, and to answer for this he was sunsequently summoned before the General Court. In 1674 he was appointed by the court "Ensigne of the Millentary companie of Barnstable." In 1675 he and his brothers Joseph and Jabez petitioned the Plymouth court for land granted to "children heer borne and brought vp." In 1685 he took out a license to sell cider in Barnstable. In 1689 he was chosen one of the selectmen of that town. My only knowledge of the date of John's birth comes from an old diary written in 1702, and quoted in the sketch of John.1 (Source Franklin Howland's: A Brief Genealogical History of Arthur, Henry, and John Howland and Their Descendants, of the United States and Canada. c. 1885)
