      From Anne Arundel Gentry, citation details below:

      Philip Howard, at the death of his father in 1703, was made the executor of the estate, but he soon became involved in a lawsuit regarding the estate of his maternal grandfather, James Warner of South River. James Warner by will left "Warner's Neck" to his daughter, Jane Sewell, with the provision that it would descend to and remain always in the possession of his heirs. Her husband, James Sewell, sold it to Samuel Howard. This sale was contested by the other Sewell heirs. The court eventually decided in favor of the conveyance, inasmuch as Samuel Howard by rights of his wife was an heir. At a subsequent rent roll, "Warner's Neck" was in the possession of Henry Pinkney by his marriage to the widow of Philip Howard.

      Philip Howard died intestate in 1705. Henry Pinkney, Cornelius Howard, and Joseph Howard were made the guardians of his minor children. Shortly afterwards Henry Pinkney married the Widow Howard.

      Priscilla Howard, the spinster daughter of Philip and Sarah Howard, was buried from St. Ann's Church on January 27, 1718. Samuel Howard, her brother, was named administrator of her estate, whereupon on March 2, 1718, he distributed the proceeds among the following heirs--Sarah Cunningham, Samuel Howard, James Howard, Rachel Hinton, and Philip Howard.
