Notes for HENRY HOWLAND   Chart

"Recently our Society engaged Sir Anthony Wagner, Garter Principal King of Arms, to try to establish the ancestry of Henry Howland of Fen Stanton and, also, to determine whether he is the same Henry Howland who married Alice Ayres in Ely. Sir Anthony's conclusion is that they are two separate families and that Henry Howland of Ely also appears on the Ely records as Henry Howlett."
