This is the official web site of the Edward Howell Family Association.

Edward Howell was born in 1584 at Westbury Manor in Marsh Gibbon, Buckinghamshire, England. He and his wife, and his eight children emigrated to America in about 1634, settling in Lynn, Massachusetts. Edward, a gentleman, was granted 500 acres in Lynn. In 1640, Edward then 56, led a party of Lynn citizens seeking land and religious freedom to the unsettled territories of Long Island. They founded the town of Southampton, the first English settlement in the future State of New York. Edward served the town as magistrate and built the first water mill there in 1644.
