John HOWELL (c1700-?)

and Elizabeth PLAW (1700-?)

 

John Howell and Elizabeth Plaw married on 6 February 1725/6 at St. Nicholas in Brighton, Sussex.

John Howel may have been baptised on 22 February 1700 in Brighton and have been the son of Henry Howel and Mary Long, or he may have been baptised on 23 November 1701 at the Presbyterian church in Brighton on 23 November 1701, the son of John Howell and Elizabeth Baker, or on 23 May 1703 at the Union Street Chapel in Brighton, the son of John Howell and Elizabeth Merchant.  A John Howell of Brighton left a will in 1767 and another 1783.

Elizabeth Plaa was baptised on 14 July 1700 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.  She was the daughter of Robert Plaw (c1660-?) and Johanna Payne (c1665-?), although in the baptism register her parents names were recorded as Robart and Hanah.  Her sister Anne Plaw also married a John Howell but in 1709.

 

John Howell and Elizabeth Plaw had 6 known children:

  1. Mary Howel was baptised on 16 April 1727 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.

  2. Joanna Howel was baptised on 1 September 1728 at St. Nicholas, Brighton and buried there on 18 May 1729.

  3. John Howel was baptised on 30 January 1729/30 in Brighton.  He may have married Rose Pitman in 1749.  (They have their own page.)

  4. Thomas Howel was baptised on 2 November 1732 in Brighton.

    Thomas may have married Mary Evefield by banns on 8 June 1756 in Brighton.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Brighton.  There was another Thomas Howell born in 1737, but I believe he married in1760 when he was described as Thomas, junior.

  5. Elizabeth Howel was baptised on 16 May 1736 in Brighton.

  6. Joanna Howel was baptised on 11 May 1740 in Brighton.

    Joanna may have married Stephen Buckoll by banns on 5 February 1767 in Brighton.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Brighton.
