    ~ DESCENDANTS of JOHN HOWE ~
    http://freepages.history.rootsweb.com/~historyofMarlborough/genijhowe. htm#JOHN
    The HOWES were among the very first settlers of Marlborough, and hav e been, in every period of her history, one of the most. numerous fami lies furnishing vast numbers of emigrants for other and more western t owns.

    1 John HOWE, of Sud., was one of the petitioners in 1657, for the gran t which constituted Marl. He was the son of John Howe, supposed to b e the John Howe, Esq., who came from Warwickshire in Eng., and who wa s a descendant of John Howe, himself the son of John of Hodinhull, an d connected with the family of Sir Charles Howe of Lancaster, in the r eign of Charles I.

    John Howe resided first perhaps at Watertown, and afterwards at Sudury , where he was in 1639. He was admitted freeman in 1640. He died at Ma rlborough 1687, and his wife Mary died about the same time. In 1642 h e was selectman in Sudbury, and in 1655 was appointed by the pastor an d selectmen "to see to the restraining of youth on the Lord's day." Ac cording to tradition, he was the first white inhabitant who settled o n the new grant. He came to Marl. about 1657, and built himself a cabi n a little to the east of the Indian Planting Field, where his descend ants lived for many generations. His place was situated some 100 rod s from Spring Hill Meeting House, a little to the east of the presen t road from Spring Hill to Feltonville recently occupied by the late E dward Rice. His proximity to the Indian Plantation brought him in dire ct contact with the natives; but by his kindness, he gained the confid ence and good will of his savage neighbors, who accordingly, not onl y respected his rights, but in many cases made him the umpire in case s of difficulties among themselves. In a case where a pumpkin vine spr ang up within the premises of one Indian, and the fruit ripened upon t he premises of another, the dispute which arose between them as to th e ownership of the pumpkin, was referred to him ; and inspired with th e wisdom of a second Solomon, he called for a knife, and severed the f ruit, giving a moiety to each. This struck the parties as the perfecti on of justice, and fixed the impartiality of the judge on an immutabl e basis.

    Nor was a sense of his justice and impartiality confided in by the Ind ians alone. When in 1662, Thomas Danforth, Esq., made a demand upon th e Colony for a further compensation for his services, the Court ordere d that he "shall have granted him so much land as old Goodman Rice an d Goodman Howe, of Marlborough, shall judge to be worth ten pounds; an d they are impowered to bound the same to him."

    John Howe opened the first public house in the place. About 1670, we f ind his petition for a renewal of his license, and he speaks as thoug h he had been some time engaged in the business.

    The descendants of John Howe were very numerous ; though a portion o f the Howes of Marlborough were of another family. John Howe's will, p roved 1689, mentions wife Mary, sons Samuel, Isaac, Josiah, Thomas, an d Eleazer, and dau. Sarah Ward, Mary Wetherby, and John IIowe, Jr. , a son of son John, deceased. His property was inventoried at. 511 . He gave Thomas "the horse he troops on."

    Part of Preface to Howe Genealogies by Daniel Wait Howe
    http://members.aol.com/ArletaHowe/Howe.html
    "In England the names How, Howe and Howes seem originally to have bee n synonymous. In Lower's Patronymica Britannica or Dictionary of the F amily Names of the United Kingdom, giving the origin and definition o f family names, is the following: 'How, Howe, Howes. In the South a sm all round hill; in the North, a hollow place or plain. The mediaeval f orm is At How, generally synonymous with hill. A-Sax Hou, a mountain, ' page 164."

    Most of the Howes in America today are descendants of John of Sudbur y and Marlborough, Abraham of Roxbury, Abraham of Watertown and Marlbo rough, Edward of Lynn and James of Roxbury and Ipswich; all of whom we re in Massachusetts soon after the arrival of Governor John Winthrop i n 1630. All of them were Englishmen and Puritans. None of the five emi grant ancestors were related to one-another, except that Abraham of Ro xbury and James of Roxbury and Ipswich were brothers. Nothing is know n about circumstances of sailing except that Edward of Lynn came ove r in the Truelove in 1635. Besides the five main lines above mentioned , the work contains an appendix of fragmentary lines not yet connected .

    # Occupation: Esquire 2
    # Note:

    John Howe was in Sudbury as early as 1639 and was admitted freeman 164 0. He was selectman 1642, and is mentioned in the records of that tow n as late as 1655; soon after he moved to Marlborough, Mass. where h e died in 1687, leaving a widow Mary, five sons and three daughters. I t was his daughter Mary Howe who married John Wetherbee, the ancesto r of the many families in Rindge bearing his name.

    Part of the land assigned to John Howe in Sudbury was used as the sit e of a tavern. "At least four generations of Howes kept the place a s a tavern. In 1746 Ezekiel Howe called it "The Red Horse." As Sudbur y was just about halfway between Boston and Worcester, this inn becam e a regular and popular stopping place for travellers between these tw o towns. it was owned and operated by Howes until the death of Lyman H owe in 1866. It was in the early sixties that Longfellow and his compa nions visited this "Wayside Inn'."

    In 1656, John Howe and other Sudbury inhabitants petitioned the Genera l Court for a grant of land. They received the grant for land abou t 8 miles west of Sudbury. The new settlement was called Marlborough . On November 26, John Howe , Abraham Howe and Samuel Howe had lots as signed to them. From the begining there was friction with an adjoinin g Christian Indian tribe, the Wamesit. They had been granted 6,000 acr es of the best land in the Marlborough area as early as 1643. Much t o their dismay, the English settlers found that they couldn't have th e Indians moved as the Masschusetts Council refused to go back on thei r word. The Indian village, Whipsuppenick, was there to stay. The Indi ans were self-supporting, peaceable and adapting to the English way o f life. Unfortunitly, either hatred or greed for the land, kept relati ons between Marlborough and Whipsuppenick poor. Relations reached a he ad during the King Philip's War. English (militia) soldiers arrested 1 5 of the Indians and had then chained and sent to Boston. They also se ized the Indians supply of weapons and plundered the town. This persec ution led to the breakup of the village and the Indians fleeing.

    The following relates an incident that occurred there; "Mr. How went t o Marlborough, built a cabin a little to the east of the Indian planti ng field, where his descendants lived for many generations. By his pru dence and kindness, he gained the good will and confidence of his sava ge neighbors, who accordingly made him their umpire in all their diffe rences. The following incident is related as one of the verdicts of th is second Solomon. Two Indians, whose cornfields were contiguous, disp uted about the possession of a pumpkin, which grew on a vine that ha d transgressed the limits of the field in which it was planted. the vi ne was planted in one field, the pumpkin grew in the other. the disput e grew warm.- Mr. How, after a patient hearing of both parties, divide d the pumpkin into two equal parts, giving half to each. Both partie s extolled the equity of the judge and acquiesced in the decision."

    In 1692 an Indian raid took place in which the Howe family prominentl y figured. "On the 18th July, 1692, the Indians assaulted the house o f Peter Joslin, who was at his labor in the field, and knew nothing th ere of until entering the house. He found his wife with three children , with a widow WHITCOMB, who lived in his family, barbarously murdere d with their hatchets, and weltering in their blood. His wife's sister , ELIZABETH HOW (see Howe family), daughter of John How of Marlborough , with another of his children, were carried into captivity. She retur ned, but the child was murdered in the wilderness."

    John HOWE was born about 1602 in England.(1418) (1419) Based on age o f death, stated as ae 78. He emigrated in 1639 from Sudbury, Middlesex , MA. (1420) He died on 28 May 1680 in Marlborough, Ma?. (1421) He was .(1422) Savage lists him as fau.

John was killed by the Indian s in 1676, First Mary died young, First Daniel died young, Alexander d ied soon, Daniel died perhaps at birth and may have been twin to Alexa nder.

    He was in Sudbury by 1639--and one of the original grantors-- when h e received grant of a house lot, then shared in the three divisions o f Sudbury Meadows, 1639-40. Was a petitioner for a grant of Marlboroug h, 1656, (NEHGR 62:220, Colonial Records of Marlborough) where he remo ved 1657. His house was about 1/3 mile NE of Spring-hill Meeting House . Opened a tavern in 1661. By appointment of the Mass gov/t, he and Ed mund Rice laid out the Framingham lands to Gov Danfort in 1662.

    Nellie Palmer George: "Marlborough suffered greatly through all the ye ars of Indian warfare." John How's eldest son was killed by them in 16 71. His grand-daughter, Elizabeth was at her sister's home assisting h er in caring for her infant neice when they were surprised by the indi ans in the home. The Indians seized them both, and later killed the ba by. Elizabeth was held captive for many years in Canada, being ultimat ely redeemed. She was 17 when taken captive. She returned home to marr y her long awaiting lover, Thomas Keyes. Her sister, Mrs. Joslyn, an d a child two years old were murdered a few miles from her home. Eliza beth never recovered from the horror and brutality of her sister's dea th which she was obliged to witness. Her own life was spared because o f the superstitious regard the Indians had for her beautiful voice, an d during her captivity, she was frequently compelled to 'make sweet so und.' She retained for some time the customs of the Indians--their pos ture in sitting and their love for the out of doors."

    He was married to Mary UNKNOWN before 1640 in Sudbury, Middlesex, MA.( 1423) (1424) Children were: John2 HOWE, Lt. Samuel HOWE, Sarah HOWE, M ary HOWE, Isaac HOWE, Josiah HOWE, Mary HOWE, Thomas HOWE, Daniel HOWE , Alexander HOWE, Eleazer HOWE.

    History of the Red Horse Tavern owned by the Howe Family

    Wayside Inn 72 Wayside Inn Road, off Old Boston Post Road 1702

    The How family chose a location mid-way between Boston and Worcester o n the Bay Path, as well as on a trail to Hartford, Connecticut. For tw o centuries after the granting of John How's original license for a ta vern in 1661, the How family thrived as innkeepers. John's son, Samuel , applied for a license in 1692 and in 1694 built his own tavern. In t urn, he deeded his son David 30 acres in 1702 on which to build anothe r inn, which still stands, and was to become famous in Longfellow's "T ales of a Wayside Inn." This inn was a two-room building with a commo n room below and a chamber above and was known as "How's Tavern." By 1 716, David How added "House Number Two" to the original building, cons isting of a room downstairs and one upstairs, both to the left of th e original Inn's entrance. David's son Ezekiel became proprietor of th e Inn in 1774 and changed the name to the "Red Horse Tavern." Lt. Col . Ezekiel How led the 4th Regiment of Middlesex County Militia on Apri l 19, 1775

      Introduction to the architecture of Marlborough

      Population and Settlement

      Fewer than fifty families from branches of the Natick and Wamesit trib es settled at Eliot's 1654 Praying Town, which was located in the nort heast quadrant of present-day Marlborough. The first Englishman to mo ve here is believed to have been John Howe, who arrived early in 1658 . The rest of the first group of settlers to come from Sudbury, numbe ring 15 to 20 families, began to arrive by the next year. In 1660, th e Marlborough Plantation was incorporated as the town of Marlborough , with 38 house-lots granted to its proprietors. The first eleven hou ses were arranged in a small nucleated settlement flanking the Connect icut Path between Ockoocangansett and Fairmount Hills. Among the firs t orders of business in the new town was the building of a meetinghous e, which was constructed by 1662-63 at the southwest corner of the Ind ian Planting Field, apparently because that location, as was require d in the siting of meetinghouses, was the geographical center of the t own. The Rev. William Brinsmead (Brimsmead) was chosen as the town mi nister, and shortly thereafter, possibly during the first year, approx imately two acres of land on Spring Hill were designated as a burial g round. Over the next fifteen years the settlement became more dispers ed, with settlers establishing outlying farms and mills at locations s ome distance from the center where the soil was good or water power fr om the streams could be utilized. Partly because of legal restriction s placed on any new settlers, initial population growth was slow. B y 1670 there were about forty English families here, numbering about 2 10 people. Five years later, however, during King Philip's War, mos t of the settlers left Marlborough, some never to return.

      ARCHITECTURAL DESCRIPTION.
      Even if this house does not contain the pre-1660 cabin of first settle r John Howe, (an architectural inspection of the interior would be nec essary to tell whether it might,) it was undoubtedly enlarged and upda ted many times during its long history. Today, it is a typical 2 1/2-s tory, 5- by 2-bay, center-chimney colonial farmhouse embellished wit h later details. A long one-story ell extending to the west has a two- car garage inserted at the outer end. The ell also has the other mai n alteration--the installation of casement windows on the facade.

      The other windows are presently 6-over-6-sash, with molded surrounds ; they probably replaced 2over-2-sash sometime after 1927. The main en try has a mid-nineteenth-century four-panel door with applied molding s in an earlier, Federal period surround of flat pilasters, narrow div ided 2/3length sidelights, and a high frieze with overhanging lintel . Another four-paneled door is located in the ell facade. At the mai n roofline is a molded, boxed cornice with a complex bed molding, char acteristic of the Federal period. The house has narrow corner boards , and is presently clad in wood shingles. The roof is asphalt shingle , the foundation is granite block.

      This house was also the first tavern in Marlborough for there is a pet ition for renewal of his license in 1670. His son John Howe Jr. was ki lled by the Indians near Sudbury in 1675, and John Jr.'s daughter Eliz abeth was taken captive by the Indians in Lancaster, from the house o f her brother-in-law Peter Joslin in 1692, she being the only survivo r was later ransomed by the government after nearly four years of capt ivity.

      Probably because John Howe's son, John Howe, Jr. (b. 1640), was als o a tavern-keeper, (his tavern was on the eastern section of the Bosto n Post Road,) there has been some confusion as to whether or not thi s house stands on the site of the first house built in Marlborough. I f Charles Hudson is to be believed, this building does indeed stand o n or near that site, and certainly occupies part of John Howe's farm . Whether it contains any part of that first cabin of ca. 1657, howeve r, is unknown, although it is quite likely that it does incorporat e a house of some sort that he occupied before he died in 1689. Hudson , writing in 1862 and referring to landmarks of his own time, says tha t the home of John Howe, who is generally acknowledged to have been th e first settler in what was to be incorporated in 1660 as the town o f Marlborough, was located "100 rods from the Spring Hill meeting hous e, a little east of the present road from Spring Hill to Feltonville " on the property "recently occupied by the late Edward Rice." (Hudson , 381). Pacing 100 rods north of the meeting house would apparently pl ace either the cabin or a slightly later John Howe House squarely on t his property. "E. Rice" is shown as one of its owners on the maps of 1 830 and 1835.

      Deed research will be necessary to reveal the exact line of ownershi p of the house. It shows first on maps as having belonged sometime bef ore 1803 to Francis Howe (1750-1833). Francis Howe, who married Mary H apgood in 1773, was a direct descendant of one of John Howe's younge r sons, Col. Thomas Howe (1656-1733), who was also a tavern-keeper, an d it is possible that Col. Thomas, rather than John Howe, Jr., inherit ed their father's house and continued to keep the tavern here at thi s location.

      If he did carry on the house, tavern business, and farm, then the prop erty may have passed by way of his son and grandson (also both Thoma s Howe) to Francis, who was the third Thomas's son.
      Also, if Col. Thomas was the owner of this house in 1711, then it is l ikely that this was the building referred to as "Capt. Howe's garrison ", one of 26 houses designated at that time as places of refuge in th e event of an Indian attack.

      By 1803 the house was owned by Joseph Brigham, possibly a cousin of Fr ancis Howe through his mother, Dorothy Brigham. This may have been Jos eph Brigham, Esq., the first "settled" lawyer in Marlborough, who wa s also Justice of the Peace in 1804. By 1830, the property had apparen tly come under the ownership of members of the other Howe family in Ma rlborough, the line of original settler Abraham Howe. The owner in tha t year was the "Widow J. Howe", with Edward Rice. It is likely that th is refers to Mrs. Jerusha (Gates) Howe, widow of Joel, and her brother -inlaw, Edward Rice.

      The house is next shown on maps, in 1853 and 1856, as belonging to W.H . and M.E. Howe. Two of Jerusha Howe's children (possibly twins, as th ey were baptized on the same day in 1823), were William Henry and Mar y (Mariah) Elizabeth Howe. Jerusha died in 1847, and from the initial s on the maps, it appears that William Henry and Mary Elizabeth inheri ted this property jointly. By 1875 the property is shown under the nam e of W.H. Howe alone. Farmer Ephraim Howe, who made his home on Bolto n Street, was apparently the next owner, by 1889. By that year he ha d begun the subdivision of part his own fifty acres, as well as the th irty-three acres of William H. Howe's former property. In all, he lai d out 69 small lots fronting on Bolton, Union, and the new State Stree t. Fowler Street itself, where 19 lots were laid out south and west o f the farmhouse, was to be extended to Bolton. Early in this century t he property was acquired by Charles Nourse. He died sometime before 19 27, when it was owned by his heirs.

      John Goodman Howe House

      On this plantation lied the first white inhabitant of Marlboro, John H owe of Sudburv was one of the petitioners in 1657 for the new grant, a nd was the son of John Howe supposed to be the John Howe Esq. who cam e from Warwickshire, England, and who was a descendant of John Howe, t he son of John of Hodinhull and connected with the family of Sir Charl es Howe of Lancaster in the reign of Charles first. John Howe with hi s wife Mary resided first in Watertown and afterwards in Sudbury wher e he was in 1639. He was admitted freeman in 1640 and he and his wif e both died in Marlboro 1687. John came to Marlboro about 1657 and o n the above spot of land not far from the Aaron Stevens Homestead a li ttle to the east of the Indian Planting Field, he built him a cabin wh ich has been enlarged or rebuilt and occupied by his descendants for m any generations. His proximity to the Indian Plantation brought him i n direct contact with the natives, but by his kindness he gained the c onfidence and good will of his savage neighbors who accordingly not on ly respected his rights but in many cases made him Judge in cases of d ifficulties among themselves.

      One day two Indians got into a dispute, when a pumpkin vine sprang o n the land of one Indian and the fruit ripened upon the premises of th e other. Each claimed the property but decided to go to John as Umpire . "Pale face Chief him tell where sun fruit go ; white face chief, hi m know a heap, him tell." Quickly John calls for a knife and severin g the fruit gives half to each. "Pale face Chief him big man; Chief, h im know, him tell; him very big Chief." And John went up a notch stil l higher in the good opinion of his red faced neighbors.

      Nor was a sense of his justice and impartiality confided in by Indian s alone. When in 1662 Thosmas Danforth Esq. made a demand upon the col ony for a further compensation for his services the Court ordered tha t he "shall have granted him so much land as Goodman Rice and Goodma n Howe of Marlboro shall judge to be worth ten pounds; and they are em powered to bound the same to him."

      Goodman Howe seems to have inherited some of that fine trait of charac ter of the ancestral scholar and chaplain of Cromwell, who one day whe n the eloquent preacher was soliciting aid or patronage for some perso n whom he thought deserving, turned sharply and queeried "John Howe yo u are always asking something for some poor fellow, why do you never a sk anything for Yourself ?" John Howe at Sudbury was Selectman and app ointed "to see to the restraining of youth on the Lord's Day." As tim e went on he opened the first public house in Marlboro, and if that b e true then this Homestead was an Inn or Tavern, and about 1670 we fin d his petition for a renewal of his license and he speaks as tho he ha d been in the business for some time. At the time he was licensed "t o keep a house of entertainment" there were but two houses between hi s tavern and Worcester. At this, Ordinary, his grandson, David Howe wh o afterwards in 1700 built and kept the Red Horse Tavern at Sudbury t o distinguish it from the Marlboro "Black Horse Inn," may have been fa vorably struck with the occupation of an Innholder which in early day s was considered quite a distinguished occupation. the landlord bein g the great man of the town and Esquire. Selectman and local Magistrat e.

      Everything was posted at the tavern which became the general place fo r news, and distances were computed from tavern to tavern.

      The descendants of John Howe were numerous. In his will proved in 168 9 he gave Thomas "the horse he troops on" and he mentions among the ot hers John Howe, Jr. a son of his son John who was married to Elizabet h Ward and killed by the Indians in the east part of Marlboro, near Su dbury and as the Probate Record says "his housings were burned by th e Indians." They say the latter kept a tavern on the Munroe Wilson pla ce and that he was killed aid his buildings burned the day before Capt . Wardsworth was kil1ed at Sudbury. His daughter Elizabeth or Mary cam e near sharing her father's fate, for in 1692 she was in Lancaster a t the house of Peter Joslin who married her sister, when the Indians a ttacked the house, murdered the family and carried her into captivity.

      For several years the name How, as formerly written, has been the prev ailing name in numbers in this town. In 1762 there has been the prevai ling name in numbers in this town. In 1762 there were 18 persons by th e name of Howe taxed in the southern part of Marlboro. In 1770 twent y Howes were taxed. In 1798 thirty-one Howes were taxed. In 1826 ther e were 28 of the name on the list of voters and in 1840 the Howe voter s were 42. Over one hundred years ago Marlboro ,was said to be the hiv e of the Howes and more than one hundred and fifty families by that na me had then resided here.
