LINEAGE OF SAMUEL H. HAYWARD (HOWARD) 1613-1681 of CHARLESTOWN, MASSACHUSETTS...In 1635, Samuel 
H. Hayward, 22 years old, arrived in Boston, Massachusetts on the ship Elizabeth.  He married 
Sarah Stowers in 1645/8 and began the Howard lineage in America.  Who was he?  Was he just a 
carpenter?  Why did he and a friend (John Doe) disembark at Boston?  Were they part of a larger 
family emigration to the Commonwealth?  His name, Samuel, would ring through the next four 
generations, while the family resided in Charlestown and Malden, MA on to Temple, NH, on to 
Bethel and Rumsford, ME and westward to New York and into the Midwest.  Today, his descendants 
remain in Minnesota, Washington, and California....(to be continued)...

England.  I have traced my line back to about 1650 to Kingston-upon-Thames, with branches in

side of the Atlantic re Howard research I would be more than happy to help.."

HOWARD or HAYWARD?  What surprised me most was the reference to the Hayward name, as that was 
my mothers maiden name, my fathers was Howard!  She was born in France of an English father 
(nottingham) and came over here during the war, while my father came from Co. Durham England.  
My mother's grandfather, Lambert Taviner Hayward was the genealogist in the family, he spent a 
lot of time in the thirties researching his side of the family back to 1730 on the Hayward side.
Each family was located in the Costwolds...

HOWARD CONNECTIONS...My grandmother was Alice Howard, daughter of Rebecca Barnes and John B. 
Howard of Missouri.  He died at age 22, was the son of John S. Howard, who was the son of John 
Baker Howard (of Maryland) and Mary Semonies of Virginia.  I have Rebecca Pruitt as John S. 
Howard's wife, but I think she was his second wife and not the mother of John B. Howard.  I 
have circumstantial evidence to connect John Baker Howard to Edmund Howard and Margaret Dent 
family of Maryland, but no absolute proof as yet.  Am interested in more info about the Howards. 
It took a long time to find my info on them as grandmother was only four months old when her 
father died and she died before I was born.  Thanks for any help.

BRITISH ENSIGN comes to America..."My mother was a Howard and I have traced the family back to 
the mid 1700s in New York.  Seabury Howard  (aka Richard) came to America as an ensign in the 
British Army.  He  fought in the campaign of 1759 under Generalk Wolfe against the French.  
Took part in the  capture  of Quebec.   He joined the American army when the Revolution began.  
He married Rachel Peck  and settled in Kinderhooks and Point Penninsula, NY.    Their son, 
Sebra-Bebre was born May 9, 1775.  He married Rachel Scott and they had 12 children:  Hannah 
(1797), John S. (1798), James (1800), William (1801), Sally (1803), Charles (1804), Sebere Jr. 
(1805), Hiram (1808, George W. (1810), Willam Orville (1811), Jane Scott (1813), Mary Ann 
(1815).  I would like to find more relatives and also any information about where Seabury came 
from in England.  He was killed at the Battle of Monmouth, but I cannot verify this.

ALABAMA HOWARDS moved from Georgia into Alabama and on into Texas.  Enoch Howard, reportedly a 
native of England who came to Georgia as a child before marrying and settling in Montgomery 
County, Alabama about 1812.  He and his wife, Mary Green, had ten children:  Haley, Henry, 
Hyram, Hazel, Hadley, Dodge, Nancy, Henrietta, and Ada.  I'm descended from Hadley's daughter, 
Emily, who like all his children came to Texas.

MEANING OF HOWARD SURNAME...As an old-English surname it means Keeper of Hogs or Sheep 
(Hogward).  Other meanings suggest high chief/warden, brave, hardy of heart and mind.  
Derivatives of the name include Hayward, Heywood, etc.  Likely origins are Anglo-Saxon, 
perhaps derived from the Norman personal name of Huard or Heward which is composed of the 
Germanic elements hug, meaning heart, mind, spirit, plus hard, hardy, brave, strong.  It may 
also be traced to the Anglo-Scandinavian personal name Haward, composed of the old Norse Ha 
(high) plus Varor (guardian of warden).  Reaney's dictionary of Surnames has several early 
examples of both variants, e.g. Willelmus Huward (1170 Northumberland), John Heward 
(Colchester, Essex 1337), and Geoffrey Houward (Cumberland 1210).  The earliest Howard of whom 
we can be certain was a judge who died in 1308.  He was the father of Sir William Howard (or 
Haward), first Duke of Norfolk and founder of the House of Howard, the premier family of the 
English Roman Catholic nobility at the time.  The Howards of Norfolk included the earls of 
Effingham, Carlisle, Suffolk, and Berkshire.  Catherine Howard, wife of King Henry VIII was 
from the House of Norfolk.  Today the family seat is at Arundle Castle in West Sussex.
