  • Note:
    Catherine, a daughter of Daniel Howell and Hannah Lakin of Philadelphia, was born near Camden, NJ ca. 1681 (ca. 1698?) and died in Rosemont, NJ in 1778; buried next to husband. She married William Rittenhouse in Philadelphia in about 1719. William married out of the Mennonite faith which might have disappointed his father Gerard.
    Catherine was of a distinguished family. Her grandfather was the Honorable Thomas Howell of Harleston, Staffordshire, England, a descendant of the Howells of Einsham, Oxfordshire. Thomas received a grant of 1/800 of West New Jersey in 1677 and arrived in America in 1682. He settled in what is now Camden County and was elected to the New Jersey Assembly in 1883 and 1685; he died in 1687. Daniel, eldest son of Thomas and Katherine Howell, was born in England ca.1660 and died in Solebury Township, Bucks County, PA, in September 1739. He came to America with his father in 1682 and settled on a plantation given to him by his father, on Cooper's Creek, Gloucester [now Camden] County, NJ. This estate, named "Livewell" consisted of 250 acres. On 4 September 1686, Daniel was licensed to, or married Hannah Lakin (a seamstress of Philadelphia), sister of Moses Lakin of Cooper's Creek, NJ. Daniel sold "Livewell" to his brother Mordecai in 1787. Daniel moved to Philadelphia in 1690 and served on a grand jury there in 1701. Later he moved to Solebury Township where he resided until his death between April 14th and 28 September 1739 and he named his son, Joseph Howell, and son-in-law, William Rittenhouse, as executors but does not name his wife [presumably she died before him]: (Bucks County Will Book I: 270-272; proved 1739). Earlier, by deed of 10 June 1734, he conveyed 200 acres of his proprietary lands in New Jersey to his granddaughter Elizabeth Howell, eldest daughter of his son Daniel Howell (Capt. Daniel Howell, born ca. 1688; about 1710 he married Elsie Reading, daughter of Colonel John Reading; died 1733).
