Hi, I am wondering if anyone has any information on a Hugh Howell that was B:1659 in Wales, and D:1745 Unknown to me at this time. I believe that his father was english and his mother was Welsh, but I am not sure. His descendents moved to New Jersey USA and them some immigrated to Canada and settled in the Wentworth and Brant Counties of Ontario. This would be the line that I am following:

Hugh Howell
M: ?

His Son
Samson Howell
M:Jane Vanderbilt (B:1722, D:1805)

Their Son:
William Howell
B: May 1760 Hope Twp, Warren Co. NJ USA
M:Hannah Davis (B:1760, D:AFT 1803 CAN)
D:8 May 1823
Buried:St. George United Cemetery, South Dumfries Twp., Brant Co. Ontario Canada

Their Son:
James Howell
B:8 Nov 17832 Sussex Co. NJ USA
M:ABT 1812 Hannah Templer in Ancaster Twp., Wentworth Co., Ontario Canada
D: 2 July 1860 Ancaster Twp. etc
Buried: Zion Hill Cemetery, Ancaster Twp., Wentworth Co. ON CAN

Their Daughter
Mary Jane Howell
B:25 Sep 1831 Ancaster Twp., etc
M #1:24 jan 1852 to James Wilson
D:1 Oct 19102 Ancaster Twp., etc
Buried: Zion HIll Cemetery

James Wilson
B:8 Jan 1824 Ireland
D:202 July 1862 Ancaster, Wentworth ON
Buried: Zion Hill Cemetery

Mary Jane Howell is my g-g-g grandmother and my great grandmother's namesake (she was named Mary Howell Young)

Another person who is researching the Howells
has said that
"Hugh Howell is the grandson of Edward Howell who emigrated in 1693, established the 1st English settlement on Long Island at Southhampton, and was a member of the New York State Legislature.

He was a Bucaneer with Captain Henry Morgan and was knighted by Charles II, and made governor of Jamaica and then settled in New Jersey.

If anyone has any leads on Hugh it would be a great help, I think he is english and not welsh, but I'm not sure.

Thank you
