    Notes 
    • Information received from Judith Jordan: John Howes ran a mission hut in Almes Street, Norwich (probably Armes Street) and a sleep over house for drunks in Mariners Lane, Norwich


      Family story about John: before he worked as a full time missionary he was a joiner employed by Surrey Chapel to build mission houses but he had to walk with his tools a few miles a day he was not allowed to get bus or train. Sadly, one day a church member caught him getting off the train and he got the sack.
