    Notes:

    House lot grant in Sudbury, 1639; shared in the Sudbury divisions, 1639 and 1640; admitted freeman of Massachusetts Bay Colony 13 May 1640; selectman of Sudbury 1642. In 1655 he was appointed to "see to the restraining of youth on the Lord's day." Removed to Marlborough in 1657, being supposedly the first white inhabitant there. In old age he ran an inn between Sudbury and Worcester called the Black Horse Tavern. He appears to have been hard of hearing, increasingly so as time passed.

    There is no evidence to support the claim, commonly found online, that his wife was named Mary Martha Jones. Nothing is known of her origins.

    Dean Crawford Smith (Ancestry of Eva Belle Kempton, part III, citation details below) says that this John Howe may have been the John Howe baptized at Woodbury, Devon on 22 Jun 1617, but that conclusive proof is lacking:

    "John and Abraham Howe were not the only immigrants of that surname in early New England, but they were the only two to end their lives in Marlborough, Mass. Beyond this and the fact that Abraham witnessed John's will, only their children's intermarriage, and a year's service in 1673 when they were both selectmen in the same town, connects them on this side of the Atlantic.

    "The Howe family in Woodbury, Devonshire, includes first cousins once removed of the appropriate ages to be our immigrants John and Abraham Howe. Unfortunately, a great dearth of information outside of the parish registers hampers efforts to demonstrate any more than the most basic facts about these families. Like so many parish registers in this era, Woodbury's loses track of the Howes just about the time John and Abraham might have come to New England. Several distinctive given names were used in Woodbury: Anthony, Ursula, Susanna, Abraham, and Isaac, names that, with the exception of Abraham and Isaac, were not used in New England. We are left with no conflicting evidence, but precious little confirmation that these were our men."

    (The "children's intermarriage" to which Smith refers is the fact that John Howe's daughter Hannah married Abraham Howe's son Eleazar.)
