  1. 1.  Arthur HowlandArthur Howland was born in in of Fenstanton, St. Ives, Huntingdonshire, England; died before 30 Oct 1675; was buried on 30 Oct 1675 in Marshfield, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    He was a glover and leatherworker. In Duxbury by 6 Aug 1640.

    Like his brother Henry, and entirely unlike their more famous brother John, Arthur was a firm Quaker, and endured the lifetime of legal penalties this brought upon him. "Arthur Howland was a strong Quaker, as were many of his descendants. He was in court on October 7, 1651, for not frequenting the public assemblies on the Lord's day. In December, 1657, Robert Huchin, an itinerant Quaker, held a meeting at Howland's house. Warned that the constable was on his way to break up the gathering and arrest Huchin, Howland managed to effect Huchin's escape. He, himself, was arrested and taken before Mr. John Alden, the magistrate, the next day, having again by stratagem enabled Huchin to escape, and was lodged in jail. On March 2, 1657/8, he was fined £9 and bound for good behavior. While in jail he had composed 'a writing' which he presented to the court and which the magistrates said was full of factious, seditious and slanderous passages. Refusing to pay the fines he was again committed to prison, but on June 1, 1658, he admitted that he had 'done evil' and was released. However, he continued his adherence to the new faith."

    Notes:

    Many genealogists, including Walter Goodwin Davis, have noted that the first four children of Arthur Howland, including Mary, have to have been by a wife prior to Margaret. Janet Wolfe has brought to our attention that this first wife is likely to have been "Grace wife of Arthur Howland Lether dresser", buried in "the new church yard" of St. Giles, Cripplegate, London, on 4 Dec 1635.

    After the death of her husband, Mary continued to operate his business, as seen in a license granted her on 30 Oct 1678 "to draw and sell beer, wine, and liquors."

    Mary married Timothy Williamson on 6 Aug 1653 in Marshfield, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Timothy was born about 1621 in England; died on 6 Aug 1676 in Marshfield, Plymouth, Massachusetts; was buried on 6 Aug 1676 in Cedar Grove Cemetery, Marshfield, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    "On 5 March 1666/67, the General Court, presided over by Gov. Thomas Prence, fined Arthur Howland, Jr. £5 for 'inveigling of [Gov. Prence's daughter] Mistris Elizabeth Prence and makeing motion of marriage to her, and procecuting the same contrary to her parrents liking, and without theire consent, and directly contrary to theire mind and will.' He was also ordered to find sureties for his future good behavior, and 'in speciall that hee desist from the use of any meanes to obtaine or retaine her affections as aforsaid.' On 2 July 1667 Arthur Howland, Jr. 'did sollemly and seriously engage before this Court, that he will wholly desist and never apply himself for the future, as formerly he hath done, to Mistris Elizabeth Prence in reference unto marriage.' In spite of his pledge not to speak of marriage to Elizabeth Prence again, on 9 December 1667 Arthur Howland, Jr. married Elizabeth Prence, and thus the governor acquired Quaker in-laws. Many of the other Howlands continued their Quaker ways in the new town of Dartmouth, but Arthur Howland, Jr. remained in Marshfield, and on 5 June 1671 he was made constable of Marshfield, where presumably his duties could have included seeing that Quakers fully complied with the law."

    From Our Crandall and Beckstead Ancestors:

    "The families of David Crandall and his in-laws, the McBrides, remained close and moved from one place to another together. David and his family heard the Gospel in the home of his mother-in-law. [...] The family moved from New York to Kirtland, Ohio, in 1835. Late in 1835, David, Margaret and Daniel Mead Crandall went to Pike County. Most of the family remained in Kirtland. It is in Pike County where their youngest child was born. Daniel returned to Kirtland that year and David and Margaret remained in Missouri. They went through the same persecutions as did the other Saints there. [...] From Missouri, David and Margaret moved to Quincy, Illinois in about 1838, and met up with the rest of the family. They stayed in Quincy for three years. In 1841, the moved to LaHarpe, Illinois, twenty three miles east of Nauvoo, where there was a thriving branch of the church. [...] David and Margaret were endowed on August 24, 1843, in Nauvoo, in the office of the President.

    "David Married Mrs. Jerusha Smith sometime between the death of Margaret and when the Saints left the area in 1846. She had children from her first marriage. [...] Two reasons kept David in LaHarpe: his youngest daughter, Margaret Ann, had mental limitations and he knew that she would not be able to handle the arduous trip west; and his second wife, who was not a member of the Church, refused to go. [...] In 1853, his daughter, Margaret Ann, died."

    David married Margaret Ann McBride about 1810. Margaret (daughter of Rev. Daniel McBride and Abigail Mead) was born in 1795 in Chester, Washington, New York; died in Aug 1845 in La Harpe, Hancock, Illinois. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
