My Howard line is traced back so far to Ocracoke NC. My ancestor was William Howard, his son George, Corneillus, Martin, Daniel, Benjamin are my grandfathers'. As well as Henry Clay Howard my grandfather. My father is Noah Howard. I have been told all my life that we are descendants of the Duke of Norfolk. don't know for sure. We believe that Philip Howard is William's father and that his father was also named William. I have been told that this set of Howard's have always been a mystery to people. Don't know why. We also think that our William, Philip's son, was Blackbeard's quartermaster. Another tibbit you might like to know is that Lady Godiva was married to a Howard. He was the ruler of Mercia, I think that is the spelling. If anyone has information on my William would love to know about it. Also my father has done the dna test with family tree, would be great to have more Howard men do this with them. So far he has only matched a Howard in Florida, none of the Howard's from Maryland.
I'm a Howard a full blooded one at that. I'm just trying to learn about my family
I'm a howard as well

--Of the Howards' on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Just trying to find some information about our history and its getting so confusing where it seams to be that everyone had the same name back then.... ughhhhh! so frustrating but still interesting just the same even if its not my "Howards'" I'm finding. In my research however i found that the Howard name might have been changed from the former name -Howell- many many years ago; that is at least for my set of the Howards.... any help? Great grandfather was John Hilton Howard (Howell)?.
I never knew my last name was originally from Germany... Well then... I am confused...
My grandfather Bertrand John Howard came to Canada from England after the first world war. They landed in Hamilton Ontario and moved to northern Ontario. We were always told we had blue blood and that we were related to Catherine Howard Queen of England the 5th wife of King Henery the VIII.
