Look for completion of the third edition by 2015 Reunion

Edward Howell, son of Henry and Margaret (Hawten) Howell, was baptized at the parish church at Marsh Gibbon, Buckinghamshire, England on 26 Jul 1584. He was probably born at Westbury Manor, which had been purchased by his grandfather William Howell in 1536 and inherited by his father. Edward Howell was married for the first time by Rev. Peter Bulkeley, Rector, at Odell, Bedfordshire on 7 Apr 1616 to Frances Paxton. Their children were baptized at Marsh Gibbon, Buckinghamshire, England.

After the death of Frances Howell in 1630, Edward was married for the second time to Eleanor Maier. On the death of his father Henry in 1625, Edward Howell was declared to be Henry's heir, and became lord of Westbury Manor. The last child of Edward and Eleanor Howell was baptized in January 1634, and it is possible that Edward Howell and his family emigrated to New England as early as 1635 as part of the “Great Migration” of the English puritans. As “Mr. Howell” he was recorded at Lynn, Massachusetts in connection with a mill in the 1630's.

In 1638 Edward Howell sold Westbury Manor. He took the oath as Freeman in Boston on 14 Mar 1638/39 and about the same time received 500 acres at Lynn. In 1640, he led the “undertakers” in the settlement at Southampton on Long Island, first at “Old Town”, and then in 1648, at what became the present village of Southampton, laying out home lots along Main Street. As “Edward Howell Gent” he headed the list of “perfect freemen” on 8 Mar 1649.

Edward Howell took a leading role in the affairs of Southampton, serving in many capacities there and in Connecticut, of which Southampton became a part following a request made by himself, John Gosmer and John Moore on 25 Oct 1644. He served as a magistrate in Southampton until 1653, and as Assistant of the Connecticut Colony from 1647 to 1653. Edward Howell was buried at Old Southend Burying ground, Southampton, Long Island, New York. His death occurred shortly before 6 Oct 1655 when the administration of his estate was granted to “Mrs. Ellinor Howell”.

In 1657, she was granted twenty shillings in compensation for her house being burned by Indians. She appears to have been married subsequently to Thomas Sayre of Southampton.
