    Notes 
    • Marriage register shows that John was a widower upon marriage to Lydia. Could his first wife have been Honor Kettle (qv)?

      John signed his own name as Howse although the vicar wrote Howes.

      This seems to have been a non-conformist family, witness William's baptism at the age of 44. So our only source for their existence in several cases is the published genealogy.
