John HOWELL (c1645-?)
and Lettice (?-?)
Howell and Lettice
may have been my 8x Great Grandparents. They may have married
about or before 1669. No possible marriage has been found in the IGI
or the Sussex Family History Group's marriage index.
Howell's date and place of
birth/baptism are unknown, to me. He died after 1685 and was possibly
buried on 25 August 1688 in Brighton. In 1675 he was described as John the
younger, therefore, I assume his father may also have been a John Howell
who was still alive at that point. Might his grandfather have been
John Howell, brewer of Brighton who left a will which was proved on 14
December 1659 (PROB 11/296), or maybe Henry Howell a Brighton
fisherman who left a will which was proved on 11 February 1650 (ref PROB
11/211)? (When I am a little more sure of my Howell ancestry I will
obtain copies of the 2 wills.)
date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me. She died after 1685. There
were 4 Lettice's baptised in Brighton at about the right time - see
notes below. I
think she may have been Lettice Deane baptised 1646 and the daughter
of Thomas Deane.
John Howell and Lettice
had 7 known children:
Ann Howell was baptised on 14 September 1669 in Brighton. She
may have married James Patchin on 30 September 1696/7 (IGI says
1693). At the time he was of Rodmell and she of Brighton.
Catherine Howell was baptised on 12 March 1670/1 in Brighton.
John Howell was baptised on 27 October 1672 in Brighton and may
have been buried there on 31 December 1684.
Mary Howell was baptised on 16 May 1674/5 in Brighton. Did
she marry John Rudley on 22 October 1693 in Stanmer Sussex? They
were both then of Brighton.
Thomas Howell was baptised on 30 March 1679 in Brighton.
Lettice Howell was baptised on 3 April 1681 in Brighton and buried
there on 15 June 1681.
my possible 7x Great Grandfather, was baptised
on 3 January 1686/7 in Brighton. He married
Anne Plaw in
1709. (They have their own page.)

daughter of John Comfort and Mary Newton.
Lettice Friend was baptised on 16 January 1644/5 in Brighton, the
daughter of Richard Friend and Lettice Howell. They
married on 4 April 1643 in Brighton. Lettice Howell was
baptised on 19 July 1623 in Brighton and was the daughter of Henry
Howell and Joane Tull. Lettice Friend married
Nicholas Morris on 15 November 1664 in Brighton.
Lettice Deane was baptised on 16 February 1645/6 in Brighton, the
