    "Thomas Howell
    One person relevant to this story who appeared among landowners in the Third Tenth was Thomas Howell, who was listed with 650 acres as an “undivided part in two settlements” [Burlington Court Book, pg 28].

    It is time for a little genealogy. Thomas Howell and wife Katharine had a son Daniel Howell, who married Hannah Lakin in 1686 in Philadelphia, and whose son Daniel married the daughter of John Reading. This Daniel Howell Jr. was the person responsible for the settlement known as Howell’s Ferry on the Delaware River at the northern end of Stockton in Hunterdon County. [NJ]

    Thomas Howell was probably born about 1640 in Tamworth, Warwickshire, England. However, he may have come from Haxleston, Staffordshire, and possessed a landed estate in Warwickshire. He must have married around 1660-1665 (since his son Daniel married in 1686). His wife was named Katharine (I do not known her surname). Thomas and Katharine had at least five children born in England: two sons, Daniel and Mordecai, and three daughters, Miriam, Priscilla and Katharine.

    On August 31st and September 1st, 1677, Thomas Howell, yeoman of Haxelston, Staffordshire, acquired a 1/8th proprietary share in West New Jersey from Benjamin Bartlett, son-in-law of Edward Byllinge [per Gloucester Deed Bk 2 pg 111]. This suggests that he was not a member of the Yorkshire group, nor of the London group, but was nonetheless a Quaker.

    In August 1682, Howell sailed aboard the ‘Welcome’ along with William Penn. He came with his sons, leaving his wife behind in England. (I do not know what happened to his daughters, but they were still alive in 1687.) Thomas Howell may have sailed with William Penn, but he was destined for West New Jersey, rather than Pennsylvania, because of his purchase back in 1677 from Benjamin Bartlett. Penn was not offering shares in Pennsylvania until 1681.

    Howell settled in what was called Waterford township in the third tenth (which became Cherry Hill, Camden County). His property was adjacent to land owned by Francis Collins. In 1687, Howell sold 100 acres of his own tract to Richard Wright [Gloucester Deeds, 1-14].

    Thomas Howell must have made an impression on his neighbors, for he was elected to the Assembly in 1683, and also in 1685. At the Burlington Court of June 1684, Thomas Howell was named one of the overseers of highways in the Third Tenth with William Cooper.

    Members of the Assembly of 1683 who had a role in the development of Hunterdon County:
    From the first Tenth: William Emley, Mahlon Stacy, Thomas Lambert, William Biddle
    From the second Tenth: Thomas Budd, Daniel Wills, Thomas Gardner, Isaac Merriott
    From the third Tenth: Francis Collins, Thomas Howell

    Name: Daniel HOWELL
    Given Name: Daniel
    Surname: Howell
    Sex: M
    Birth: 1660 in of Tamworth, Warwickshire, England
    Death: 28 Sep 1739 in Solebury Twp., Bucks, Pennsylvania

    Event: Living 1685 Burlington, New Jersey
    Note: The minute book of the supreme court of NJ--commencing 1681, and now in the vaults of the office of the supreme court at Trenton--presents a curious trial of Daniel & Mordecai Howell in 1685 for shooting and carrying away the hogs of William Cooper. They were indicted, tried and convicted, the court sitting at Burlington, and were fined five pounds each. The trial, which was a protracted one, discloses the peculiar manner of our ancestors in conducting such cases. The identity of the porkers was the turning point in the case, as the ears had been cut off, and the marks destroyed. But when Daniel Cooper, son of William, testified to having seen a dead hog on the back of one of the defendants, before its ears were cut off, and identified it as one of his father's swine, there was no room for further doubt, and hence the conviction.

    Event: Land 1687 Cooper's Creek, Waterford Twp., Gloucester, New Jersey
    Note: In 1687, Daniel sold his Brother Mordecai 250 acres of land with the buildings on Coopers' Creek, probably the farm on which their father deceased. In 1688 Daniel sold 100 acres of the homestead to Moses Lakin, bounded by the stream before named. In 1690, Daniel Howell sold 60 acres, part of the original tract, to Josiah Appleton, which joined other lands owned by John and Richard Appleton, at a place then called Apple-town.

    Event: Land 1691 nr Trenton, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    Note: In the year 1691, Daniel removed from Cooper's creek to a new residence near Philadelphia which he called Hartsfield; and after a short stay at that place, he removed thence to "Stacy's Mills," at the falls of the Delaware, around which place now stands the city of Trenton.

    [Search.FTW]

    Daniel Howell was born about 1660 and came to America with his father and younger brother, Mordecai, and 3 sisters. On 4 Sep 1686, Daniel Howell married Hannah Lakin of Philadelphia. In 1687 he sold his 250 acre estate, "Livewell" in Gloucester (now Camden) County, NJ, to his brother. Daniel was in Philadelphia in 1690 and served on the grand jury in 1701.

    Daniel and Hannah had several children: Daniel, Hannah, Benjamin (who married Catharine Papen, a daughter of Heivert Papen and his wife Elizabeth Rittenhouse), Joseph and Catherine Howell (who married William Rittenhouse). Later he moved to Solebury in Bucks Co., PA, date not known. By deed of 10 Jun 1734 he conveyed 200 acres of his proprietary lands in NJ to his grandaughter, Elizabeth Howell, the eldest daughter of his son Daniel (deceased, Will 1733). It is possible that William Rittenhouse learned about the development of Hunterdon County from his brother-in- law, Daniel Howell.

    Daniel resided in Solebury Twp., Bucks, PA until his death in Sept. 1739. He named his son Joseph Howell and son-in-law, William Rittenhousen (sic), executors.
