-- John --
was the only one of the three HOWLAND brothers to come on the Mayflower in 1620,
the other two brothers came over in 1624.

His was the 13th name of 41 persons who signed the memorable compact in
the cabin of the Mayflower in 'Cape Cod Harbor' in Nov 1620.
He signed on as a manservant Mr. John CARVER.
'A profitable instrument of good; the last man that was left of those
that came over on the ship called the May Flower...' - Plymouth Col. Recs.


John:



'One Hundred and Sixty Allied Families' by John Osborne AUSTIN -
'A lusty
young man (called John Howland) coming upon some occasion above the
grating was with a seele (Sail)
of the ship thrown into the sea, but it pleased God that he
caught hold of the topsail halyards which hung overboard, an ran out at
length, yet he held his hold (though he was sundry fathoms under water) till
he was hauled up by the same rope to the brim of the water, and then with a
boat hook and other means got into the ship again.'

Illustration by H.B. Vestal 1966



-- Elizabeth --
came to America on the Mayflower with her parents and future husband.

Elizabeth Tilley came on the Mayflower, at the age of about thirteen, with her parents John and Joan (Hurst) Tilley. Her parents, and her aunt and uncle Edward and Agnes Tilley, all died the first winter, leaving her orphaned in the New World. She soon married, about 1624 or 1625, to fellow Mayflower passenger John Howland, who had come as a manservant, or apprentice, to Governor John Carver who died in April 1621.

John and Elizabeth Howland raised a large family with ten children, all of whom lived to adulthood and married. As a result, they likely have more descendants living today than any other Mayflower passengers. Some of their descendants include Franklin D. Roosevelt; both President Bush's; actors Alec and Stephen Baldwin, Humphrey Bogart, Christopher Lloyd; Mormon church founder Joseph Smith; poet Ralph Waldo Emerson; and Doctor Benjamin Spock.

-- John --
When the Mayflower was yet in Cape Cod Harbor, ten of her 'principal men',
including John, were sent out in a boat, manned by eight sailors, to select a
place to establish a longed-for home for the weary band. A storm drove them
into Plymouth harbor, and Plymouth was selected as the place of settlement.


John: Jabez Howland House

The Jabez Howland house in Plymouth was built about 1667. John and Elizabeth Howland lived with their son Jabez in this house during the winters, and Elizabeth also lived their after the death of her husband in 1672.
