    Notes 
    • Note that James 1703 and Ruth and their offspring are thought by some to be the descendents of James and Margaret Howes. We have no basis for deciding what is right, except the old history published by the NFHS some years ago. This is somewhat arbitrary on my part except that the NFHS history was carefully worked up, i have no doubt, and would have experienced considerable scrutiny when published. It isn't perfect, but well over 90% of it is accurate if not complete. They didn't have the advantage of being able to compile it from their armchair!

      So I have followed the NFHS tree and placed James and Ruth as descendents of Andrew and Edith.

      If you have a different opinion and have evidence, please do get in touch.

      It appears that for the ultimate truth we may have to consult other documents such as wills


      That might help explain why we have a will dated 1794 in our file when we have him dying in 1793!
