Edmund Howarth died 7 September, 1554, and appears to have been married twice, as Margaret his widow had one-third part of his messuages and lands as dower, the rest going to his son Robert (then aged twenty-three years), who died in 1611, his will being dated 27 January, 1608.
By this will Robert left to Edmund his son and heir all the timber on his estate and "a stone trough and garner to continue to my house a heirloom for ever ;" one moiety of his personal property he bequeathed to his son-in-law William Butterworth, who had married his only daughter Grace ; the residue he gave to his son Edmund
Howarth.' The inventory included "a clock and chimes and bells thereto" valued at twenty shillings, also a pair of loomes ; the whole goods and chattels were valued at /292
Much of the old house of Howarth Hall was built in the time of Queen Elizabeth, by Robert Howarth, whose monument and arms, a bend between two bucks' heads coped, in Rochdale Chureh, long since perished, were noticed by Dodsworth 3d April 1619, (vol. cxlv. p. 143.) The inscription was as follows:
" Hic jacet Robertus Howorth de Howorth
Gen. qui obiit 2° die Julij anno aetatis 80, 1611.
Ossa premit quamvis hodie gravis iste lapillun
Spiritus empero vivit in aree poli." '
